Overview: Strategic Practice Management
An important skill essential to the success of any practice is the knowledge of how to manage a clinic. Strategic Practice Management: Business Considerations for Audiologists and Other Healthcare Professionals, Third Edition is an organized progression of chapters that has been acclaimed to be fundamental not only for clinicians serving as practice managers but also in the development curriculum and courses in Practice Management. The 3rd edition, published in January 2018, adds contributions of nine guest chapter authors, all of whom are experts within their area of Audiology. Their insight provides professionals and students with a contemporary resource fundamental to the operation and management of a practice. Most all of the chapters included from the 2nd edition by the coauthors, Dr. Robert Glaser and Dr. Robert Traynor, are substantially updated with major improvements to the content, tables, and figures. The authors made every effort to provide the most recent and thorough references for further review.
This text covers virtually every current area of practice management and is an excellent resource for any health care practitioner considering a start-up venture, purchasing an ongoing practice, re-inventing their current practice, or for those interested in sharpening their clinical service delivery model in the current competitive arena. Currently, the text is being used in over 50% of Audiology programs that offer a practice management course.
