Throughout the last 50 years, it has become a trend for healthcare private practice's to turn over the control of their day-to-day operations. The way that they achieve this as they partner with what's called an MSO, a management services organization.
In theory, it's incredible. Doctors get to focus on doctor work, and a third-party organization runs their day-to-day business operations. In many cases, this includes everything from billing, HR, member services, utilization management, marketing, reputation management, you name it.
Worse yet, I've seen pediatric therapy private practices leave over $50,000 in lost revenue.
