Practice Management

PDS offers a wide variety of business support services to assist physicians with the daily administrative responsibilities of medical practice.  Some of our most commonly requested services include the following:

New Practice Setup - We can help with lease negotiations, space planning, staff hiring, provider applications, and all the other details required to start a new medical practice.

Employee Handbooks - Clearly define standard employment terms, benefits, etc. for typical medical practices.

Superbill/Hospital Charge Form Design - We can create organized and efficient charge forms for any specialty (see samples below).

Bookkeeping Services - We provide accounts payable, payroll, monthly financial statements, and bank statement reconciliation for smaller practices without an internal office manager or bookkeeper.

Fee Schedule Development - Create your fee schedule based on a percentage of the current Medicare Fee Schedule (MFS) for your locality to insure rate compatibility with most insurance contracts.

PPO/HMO Contract Evaluation - We can help identify gaps in your payer contract list, which plans are worth keeping, and which ones should be terminated.

Payer Reimbursement Survey/Analysis - We survey your top 10 contracts for their reimbursement rates on your top 20 CPT codes, compare those rates to a Medicare baseline, and analyze the results.

New Associate Planning - When is the right time to expand your practice and what is the best way to go about it?  We can help you evaluate the pros and cons of this difficult decision.

Income and Expense Allocation Formulas - Create compensation formulas for group practices that incentivize both individual productivity and cost-efficiency by using fixed and variable overhead expense allocation.

Partnership Negotiations - How does a successful employee physician become a shareholder or partner in a manner that is fair and equitable for all parties?  We can guide you through the process smoothly and help you avoid the most common pitfalls.

PDS consultants and management staff are well-versed in the day-to-day operational challenges faced by most private practice physicians.  Whether you need occasional assistance with a special project or long term support in a key business area, our team is ready to deliver "practical solutions for your private practice."
