It's basically our job to make your jobs easier. Seriously. But we'd all be lying if we said we didn't want to spend less time on administrative tasks (which turns into over 8 hours a week, costing about $102 billion per year). This doesn't include the opportunity cost of being able to spend our time on more meaningful tasks.
So here's what you can do: audit your practice workflow. I know, it seems a lot like more administrative work. But this is so, so important for your practice efficiency in the long run. We've done a bit of the leg work for you, and compiled some of the best resources the American Medical Association has to offer.
