In January, the American Medical Association (AMA) announced a redesigned website for its Practice Management Center (PMC), a resource designed to help physicians manage their practice more effectively. The PMC includes an online library of tools to help physicians streamline their administrative and business practices, with new sections on practice operations, claims revenue cycle management, and health insurer relations.
An estimated 7,000 visitors access the center each month. Physicians can sign up for practice management alerts or join an online community.
One particular resource that might be useful to hospitalists is a sample hospital-physician employment agreement.
