Bridging the gap…between the business of medicine and the practice of medicine.

November / December 2009:
Your Practice and the Recession

<br />Your Practice and the Recession

Despite beliefs—or wishful thinking—that medicine is impervious to recession, it’s likely you are seeing its effects on your practice. If you have empty gaps in your schedule, if those who are coming in are having a harder time paying bills, or if they’re sicker because they’ve put off preventive care, you’re not alone. But you’re also not without options, ranging from incentives in the president’s stimulus plan to creative business decisions and patient-friendly policies. Start by taking a hard look at how your business is doing, then consider ways to not only improve your bottom line today, but also run a tighter, smarter, and ultimately more profitable practice in a post-recession environment.
