Guard My Practice

Content That Matters

Often people ask — what do you talk about on the monthly videos?

Basically, everything you need to know to run a successful medical practice and keep you feeling empowered and protected. When it comes to the business of medicine, it is not something that is well covered in medical school. In my 20 years of practicing healthcare law, I saw many doctors struggle in the same areas. In fact, I give talks to residents every month and I always hear the same things about how the information we discuss was never taught in training.

I get into the topics you really want to hear about, and dig deep on what you need to know to run and protect your practice.

Training Resources for your Healthcare Business

Section 1: Contracts

We talk about everything from signing your first employment contract and what to look for, to how to negotiate a contract, the basics of setting up your practice, hiring Advanced Practice Providers, negotiating a lease, and more.

Section 2: Compliance

We talk about the importance of a compliance plan and how to build one, diving deeper into HIPAA and how it still affects you, fraud statutes, and what to do when you have a run-in with the legal system.

Section 3: Employees

We focus on employees and speak to classifying employees, problematic staff, dealing with difficult partners, and what do you do when an employee raises a compliance or harassment concern.

Section 4: Patients

What happens if they are upset with you, don’t follow your advice, and post negative online reviews? How do you build a strong, robust relationship that won’t turn sour?

Section 5: Billing/Coding

This section discusses incident-to billing, the importance of auditing, and what to do when the government comes knocking.

Section 6: Growth

We discuss how clinical practices change and grow over time and touch on mergers and acquisitions, red flags in corporate deals, starting a partnership, shoring up compliance as you grow, and how to wind things down.

Guard My Practice will cover the topics you need and make sure you can digest the content. Weekly 15 minute videos are easy to consume and will directly apply to your practice.
