It’s that time of year again... Spring Cleaning!

Spring Cleaning

Every medical practice should take the time to review their entire practice. Literally go through everything! Use the below questions as a check list. If you answer NO to any of the below questions, then you need to Spring Clean right now!

  • Do you have a list of office supplies that you order?
    • When was the last time you did price checks on each item?
    • Do you have supplies scattered throughout the office and keep ordering the same supplies before you need them?
  • Do you have a list of medical supplies?
    • When was the last time you did price checks on them?
  • Are you hoarding paper?
    • What is in your desk drawer?
    • Keep important documents in a binder
    • Do your EOBs need their own room?
    • Do you have routing/encounter forms and face sheets and patient forms?
    • Do you have paper medical records for patients who haven’t returned in years?
  • Who in your office loves to hang on to any and every thing ‘just in case?’
  • What has the patient experience been like this year?
  • What insurance issues have you faced this year?
  • What types of denials are you typically seeing?
  • Have you seen an increase or decrease in new patients?

Medical practices are multi-faceted – it’s not just about seeing patients, paying bills, and waiting for insurance companies to pay. Every aspect of the business is important to maintain the practice’s health.
