Faced with mounting costs, declining reimbursement, and increased complexity brought on by the Affordable Care Act, a growing number of independent physicians are feeling pressured to give up on private practice.

But being acquired isn’t the only option for survival. With the right technology partner for electronic medical records, practice management and care coordination, you’re free to remain independent—without having to go it alone.

  • How to choose the right technology for your practice
  • The importance of aligned incentives with your vendor
  • Transparency in claims collection
  • Keeping the focus on patients
  • How his practice increase collections by 60%

We believe that as independent physicians, the only people you should have to be accountable to are your patients. They’re your patients, it’s your practice, and it’s your financial independence. Register now to learn how to keep it that way.
