Come to #KareoChat this Week to Learn the Value of the Mid-Year Performance Check

May 17th, 2016 by Kareo

“We think it’s imperative that practices do not lose sight of their big picture goals for 2016, and a mid-year performance check is the perfect way to do that,” said Gabriel Perna, managing editor at Physicians Practice and this week’s host of the #KareoChat. On Thursday, May 119 at 9 AM PT, @PhysiciansPract will lead a discussion on the importance of the mid-year check up and what it should entail. Join in and bring your questions and ideas.

 

 

 

Here are the chat questions to help you prepare your thoughts and join the conversation.

  1. What are benefits to doing a formal mid-year performance review for office staff?
  2. What are some ways small practices can measure goal progress?
  3. How do you deal with regulatory compliance that’s changed over the course of year?
  4. What benefits or disadvantages are there to administering patient satisfaction surveys bi-annualy?
  5. What types of red flags should physicians be on the lookout for when conducting a mid-year performance check?
  6. How should you change year-long projects or initiatives based on your progress/lack of at mid-year?

Bring your questions, post them to #KareoChat ahead of time, or tweet them to the hosts @PhysiciansPract and @GoKareo. Hope to see you there!
