Who is opening new pediatric practices and how are they learning to do it?!

At the NCE, Susanne Madden and I repeated a talk we’ve done a few times – “How To Start A Pediatric Practice in Five Easy Steps!” – to another very receptive audience.  While I’d like to think the positive reception was because of our amazing delivery (ok, Susanne’s delivery), I suspect it has as much …

Awesome Pediatric Practice Management/Coding Event

I get a few requests every month for when the next “pediatric coding or practice management conference is being held.”  Based on what I continue to see in most independent pediatric practices, this kind of education is still vital. The Coding Institute has finalized their pediatric agenda for an event in Orlando from Dec 5 …

July 2009 Pediatric Practice Management Coding Event!

t’s official – go sign up.  Space is limited.  Similar to our previous endeavors but two days, a lot of content, and the largest collection of pediatric practices in one place all year long.  The best part -it’s at Disney, you bring your family! It’s also substantially cheaper than other events held at the same …

Live From Dallas + Some Correlations

I am, again, in the back of the room at our Coding and Practice management event and listening to Dr. Tuck. I have to steal a line or two from him, he’s got some good ones. Dr. Lander is next. I’ve noticed some real changes in the audiences I speak to over the last few …

Most Common Pediatric Codes

I am doing some research into the most common pediatric codes in order to set up a spread/worksheet for use during an insurane negotiation.  Lots of “consultants” routinely make the mistake of suggesting that you look at your top 10 or, more daringly, top 20 or 30 codes when comparing reimbursement between two plans. That’s …

Questions and Answers from April Pediatric Practice Management and Coding Conference

Long overdue, but I did try to get them right. Thanks go out to Donelle Holle as well as Igor and Q who helped check them out before posting. If you’d like a nice, neat copy, you can download the PDF. I was going to post the entire thing here, but it is much too …

Fall 2008 Pediatric Coding and Practice Management Conference

Whew, we have finally gotten our ducks in a row and announce our Fall Pediatric Coding and PM conference in Columbus, OH on September 17. It’s the usual deal: AAP endorsed and AAP members get in cheaper. The individual class titles include: Free Online Practice Management Tools Coding Primer Give Me the Money: How to …

Another Immunization-Vaccine Chart

It’s been tough getting to the blog the last week or so. I’ve been busy getting ready for our Pediatric Practice Management Conference in August (why aren’t you signed up?!) and will announce later this week a new AAP-endorsed event in Columbus, OH on September 17 (save the date!) and a teleconference series sponsored by …

Pediatric Financial Benchmark Update

Igor and I have been working tirelessly on the various pediatric benchmarks we track for our customers (and the rest of the world). In fact, we’ve been focusing on developing a single PCC financial benchmark figure, with a clinical one to follow. As a result of building this page, we have had to do a …

Live From the Pediatric Coding and Practice Management Event!

I have a vision of being one of those fancy bloggers who somehow writes a “live” blog from some important event. I don’t know why, but it seems cool. So, as I type, Dr. Tuck is giving the first full lecture of the day, his CPT 101 course. Dr. Lander goes next with his “Give …
