INTRODUCTION TO MEDICAL PRACTICE MANAGEMENT uses a unique, two-tiered approach in each unit to help students become successful managers in any medical office setting. The first chapter in each unit introduces students to the basics of medical practice management and the roles of each staff member within the healthcare facility, The second chapter of each unit covers the skills and responsibilities of the manager in relation to the topics being covered. From personnel management to compliance with regulatory agencies, students must first understand the fundamentals of managing the medical office in order to develop the expertise they need to successfully teach staff, train new personnel, and audit procedures that occur in daily practices. Numerous examples of letters, procedural policies, and forms are included for hands-on learning. Students will also have the opportunity to practice the skills they are learning as they create their own practice with the Think Like a Manager feature at the end of each unit and the accompanying templates provided in the back of the book.


"Initially, I was very excited to see the proposal as there is a great need for this type of text. There is not a text that covers the vast responsibilities of a medical practice manager in an accurate and thorough manner."Heater Skow, Spencerian College"I think that this concept is wonderful. Providing the text does a good job of covering the information presented in the outline, it will be a wonderful tool!"Trish Berry, Hamilton College
