Cure your practice’s “chronic crisis management” syndrome

Do constant disruptions, priority shifts, scheduling nightmares, rising costs, coding errors, reimbursement hassles and spiking workloads have everyone in your medical practice working harder — yet accomplishing less? Take back control! In Take Back Time: Bringing Time Management to the Medical Practice, nationally recognized healthcare consultant Judy Capko reveals simple, affordable and amazingly effective time management secrets for improving the patient experience, empowering staff, creating a smoother, more successful practice … and enjoying a more satisfying personal life, too.

Noteworthy Features:

  • Practical, proven time management strategies drawn from successful large, small, and major academic faculty practices nationwide
  • A win-win focus on quickly defusing conflicts, clearing hurdles and building confidence to create lasting rewards for physicians, practice managers, staff, and patients
  • Ready-to-use tools, including checklists, grids, comparison charts, efficiency-boosting office floor plans, suggestions for patient pre-visit forms and more
  • Real-world examples of where — and why — time management problems arise in medical practices (including a tactic commonly used to curtail staff’s personal use of phones and the Internet that can actually cost a practice $20,000 in lost productivity)
  • “Take Time” tips that follow up each chapter with specific action items
