This course is designed for the practicing orthopedic surgeon or group administrator who understands the critical nature of strategic development and alignment of their existing practice within their local environment. From developing strategies including the addition of ancillary services, initiating bundled payments, payment for non-covered clinical procedures, and understanding in and out of network opportunities, this course will discuss concepts critical to the financial success of private practice. National experts will focus on the use of telemedicine, collecting outcomes data, setting up a concierge practice, effective coding strategies, and how to successfully contract with payors. Employed physician subjects will be discussed as well including employer contracting issues and negotiating appropriate reimbursement for work performed. The course will have an entire section on perhaps the most important aspect of employed or private practice which is protecting the salary that the surgeon receives, and developing a strategy for investing for the future, and finally why this is absolutely going to be critical to understand. Drs. Cole and Bert have put together a course which should be relevant to every practicing orthopedic surgeon regardless of his/her type of practice in order to be successful both personally and professionally.
