The Section on Administration and Practice Management (SOAPM) is the home at the AAP for pediatricians who want to improve the efficiency and profitability of their practices and the care that we provide our patients.

My Grandfather shared with me once that back in the day (in the 1950s), he and his buddies would drive around town until the empty light on the car’s dashboard lit up. Once the light was on, they’d reset the car’s odometer and drive until the car would…

The collateral damage of high deductible plans is often overlooked. HDP disrupt continuity of care as well as put an extra financial burden on doctors that now have to collect from patients.

I think ELAP should expand. Why stop at healthcare? I think they should branch into luxury vehicles.

I  buy a Mercedes, then ask ELAP to do a cost analysis, have them add a "reasonable" margin and then go back and say, no way with parts and labor this car cost $85,000. My analysis shows its worth $35,000. Here's a check for 30K. 

Seriously though... this is conflicting: 

Hospitals charging crazy, unreasonable amounts is bad. We need transparency, no doubt.

A third party deciding what the hospital or doctor "deserves" to get paid, also bad. In what other business does a third party decide what one "deserves" to get paid after services were rendered?

When hospitals send invoices with charges that seem to bear no relationship to their costs, the Pennsylvania firm tells its clients (generally medium-sized employers) just say no.

It's no secret docs are not motivated these days. They love medicine, but hate all the hoops they have to jump through to practice it. Definitely a challenge for administrators: 3

I've learned over the years that marketing or promoting your medical practice has way more to do with looking for ways to be remarkable than about ads, direct-mail or any other tool.
