What is your (practice) story?
“Since 1956, DoctorsManagement, a premier healthcare management and consulting firm, has helped doctors in all specialties across America.” This statement can be found on our website, marketing materials, correspondence and even products. Just like your practice, DoctorsManagement was built from the ground up on the changes, trends and needs of the healthcare environment.
We were as excited for our first client as you were for your first patient, and we did all we could to treat them well and to help them grow in a healthy direction – always with the next level of success in mind for them, and for us! Our consulting services grew over time, adding clients in more cities and even more states, using a pin map to mark each new client location. We thought, “Wow, we are really growing now!”
Before we knew it, we were celebrating our first 30 years and by then, some of our first clients were going on to enjoy the fruits of the retirement for which they had worked so hard. Others were enjoying great growth: adding new patients, needing to add more phy-sicians and staff to take care of those patients, and space – “We need more space!” With growth came the need for improving and administering all the processes to keep their patients happy and healthy. Government regulations became a large focus in the medi-cal practice and could have overtaken the joy of practicing medicine for some. In keep-ing with our commitment to our clients, DM added the ability to assist with OSHA/CLIA, Coding/Billing and Human Resources.
