SVMIC Announces Practice Management Refresher Series

By Stephen A. Dickens, JD, FACMPE
Vice President, Medical Practice Services, SVMIC

August, 2020


There seems to be no shortage of webinars these days as everyone works through the ramifications of COVID-19. While there are important considerations depending on the impact to the practice and its response, there are still many non-COVID related challenges in running a medical practice. Managers must stay current to survive. Recognizing the need for ongoing education, the Medical Practice Services Department (MPS) is hosting a six-part series focused on the business of medicine. Based on the newly revised MGMA-ACMPE Body of Knowledge (BOK), these sessions address the six domains essential to the successful practice manager including:

  • Operations Management
  • Financial Management
  • Human Resource Management
  • Risk and Compliance
  • Organizational Governance
  • Transformative Healthcare Delivery

Each topic will be presented by consultants on the MPS team. Sessions are scheduled for two hours to provide ample opportunity for questions and answers. Class size is limited, as well, to provide an interactive experience. Attendees are encouraged to connect via a camera-ready device to facilitate an interactive experience.

There is no charge for these programs. Click here to see the full agenda and register.

Have a specific practice need on one of these topics or something else? Do you need to take a deeper dive into practice operations? Contact the Medical Practice Services Department to schedule a one-on-one virtual consultation with a member of the team. We can work with you to determine next steps from there. Email Caron Shelton at CaronS@svmic.com with your question or issue to connect you to a consultant.
