"The Business of Anesthesia"
The business of anesthesia can be complex but not insurmountable. You may be thinking of a change to a different practice setting, a greater role in your current practice to be more marketable, or maybe just a better working knowledge of your present position. But what do you need to know to make a break into that uncharted territory? Understanding a few of the “Business Basics” will expand your practice options and comfort zone during your quest for that little slice of heaven.
Today’s sessions will include recognizing the basics of practice change, legal entities, the business startup, contracts, billing and collections, negotiating, practice arrangement ideas, and marketing for the CRNA.
Explore your current practice setting, potential changes and opportunities for increasing your value in that system.
Recognize the different business entities available and the basic structure of the most common forms utilized today.
Define the components of a business plan.
Recognize the basic components of a basic contract and how they relate to your anesthesia practice.
