Collaborative Practice Solutions Services: What We Do for You

Business services for your practicePodiatrists face unique challenges in modern medicine. Not only do you worry about treating your patients to the best of your abilities, you have to face rapid and increasingly complicated changes to medical regulations and reimbursement models. Podiatrists at every stage of their careers are aging rapidly as a result, weighed down by the pressures facing their field. Despite this and the many negative voices in the medical community declaring the end of private practices, you can face these challenges and succeed.

How Collaborative Practice Solutions Can Help Your Podiatry Practice

We know for a fact that it is possible to practice successfully with Value-Based-Medicine reimbursements, changes in billing, and every sort of “adjustment” that comes podiatrists’ way when there are new regulations. You simply need data to help you make the right decisions, and guidance and strategies to act on that data effectively. At Collaborative Practice Solutions, we offer a variety of services to help you get exactly what you need for your unique practice so you are equipped with the tools and the knowledge to act:

  • Coordination and plan for correcting problems

Human Resources Development – Like it or not, your practice is a business that needs effective HR.

  • Employee handbook development
  • Employee forms for HR
  • HR training videos

Business Valuations, Mergers, and Associates – If you’re looking to sell your practice, acquire a practice, or merge practices together, there are a lot of hoops to jump through.

Scribe University – This unique program helps podiatrists develop staff who can act as electronic medical record “scribes” in and out of the exam room, so a doctor has more time to focus on the patients instead of the (necessary) minutiae of records. This course teaches staff members to record everything a podiatrist needs to provide great patient care. The course includes:

  • Webinars on medical terminology, charting protocols and platform overviews, templates, and template creation
  • On-site curriculum to go in-depth into podiatry encounters, charting, and scribe work
  • Hands-on labs to put the training into practice

Virtual Practice Management Institute – This program is designed to help you prepare for and comply with Value-Based Medicine reimbursements. With our unique Virtual Practice Optimization (VPO) analysis, we help you determine exactly how you measure up against your peers and where strengths, weaknesses, and missed opportunities are for your practice. The program can include:

  • A unique VPO analysis
  • VPMI Silver package
  • VPMI Gold Package

MACRA Compliance – The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) presents practices with important business decisions that can impact your reimbursements. You don’t have to panic about it, but you do need to be prepared. We can help you stay on track with the multiple components of MACRA (including Meaningful Use and PQRS) as well as discover your own “cost/compliance balance” to improve your composite score without going broke.
