Setting A New Standard
Most business experts agree that successful service-based organizations are committed to increasing their core-business skill sets. This increased sophistication is a fundamental and can include various business areas such as sales, marketing, communication, legal, accounting, customer service, operations management, and process efficiency. Although we are strong in our clinical skill sets and understand the intricacies of patient treatment, we often struggle with fundamental business skills. In this business hall, experts offer their advice.
Just as we study and practice our craft for years in order to master skills, a lack of such business skills can keep our practices and facilities from improving their profitability–an increasingly critical task for the entire industry. These talented individuals who’ve developed content here will provide essential business skills and help drive success.
We look forward to your comments and feedback.
