Practical Steps for Improving Your Bottom Line

No matter how good you think things are going – they can be better. And, we at KZA can help you.

Whether you’re planning to stay in private practice or you are considering being acquired, merged, or employed – a better bottom line pays off. Don’t get stuck in TGE thinking – by the way, that stands for “That’s Good Enough.” Frankly, you and your practice are more valuable if sound processes are in place, documented, and followed.

This workshop is filled with assessments you can use to see how well the business office or your billing service is doing. We include assessments you can use when hiring billing managers and coders.

Join us for three fast-paced hours with information you can put into place that can improve your bottom line in 90 days.

  • Key Financial Performance Indicators
  • Best Billing Practices Assessments
  • Hiring Competent Billing Managers and Coders
  • Crafting Financial Policies That Produce Results and Don’t Put Patients Off
