Women Are an Increasing Proportion of
the Workforce
• Women have surpassed men in terms of completing
secondary and post-secondary education
– 2012 high school dropout rates were 7.3% for males and
5.9% for females
– In 2016/2017, women are projected to earn 64.2% of
Associate's degrees, 59.9% of Bachelor's degrees, 62.9%
of Master's degrees, and 55.5% of Doctorates
• Access to health care services and health insurance are
critical benefits for women
• The mother generally controls health care for the family
• Employers wanting to retain and attract skilled
employees will look at health insurance as a necessity
• As more women have health insurance, demand for
primary care services will exceed current levels

What Will the Future Healthcare Environment
Look Like?
• Total healthcare costs will continue to increase, but at a
reduce rate of change
• Practice operating expenses will continue to increase at a
greater rate than any increase in payment
• The percent of patients with Medicare and Medicaid will
increase
• The shortage of primary care and specialty providers will get
worse
• Businesses will accommodate the needs of a larger female
workforce
• Each of these will impact physicians and provide an
opportunity for organizations who are prepared to act

What You Do Today Will Determine Your
Future
Good management is more important than ever
1. Know your revenue and costs
2. Know what you cost the insurer
3. Optimize use of technology to increase efficiency and
improve quality
4. Know your quality metrics
5. Analyze payer contracts
6. Deliver a better patient experience
7. Prepare for new payment mechanisms
Copyright 2014. Medical Group Management Association® (MGMA®). All rights reserved.
Know Your Practice’s Revenue and Costs
1. Benchmark your group’s financial performance
2. Evaluate the revenue cycle of the practice and for individual
payers
• Total Accounts Receivable
• Mean Payment per Total RVU
• Mean Days from Billing to Payment
• Percent of Rejected Claims or with Adjusted Payment
2. Evaluate costs in the context of improving productivity and
profit
3. Study workflow to increase practice efficiency
Copyright 2014. Medical Group Management Association® (MGMA®). All rights reserved.
Know What You Cost
1. Analyze the cost (to the insurance company and patient)
per procedure and per case
• Track the days of hospitalization by DRG
• Know the cost of infused chemotherapy drugs
• Know the cost of prescribed drugs and their generic
equivalents
• Know the cost of surgical implants
• Know the cost of referrals to specialists
2. Be able to describe your costs to insurers, ACOs, and
capitated practices who accept professional service risk
3. Multispecialty practices should be prepared for global
payment contracts
4. Specialists should be prepared for bundled payment and
requests to “subcap” services
Copyright 2014. Medical Group Management Association® (MGMA®). All rights reserved.
Implement Technology
1. Implement and optimize use of an electronic health record
(EHR) to qualify for the Health Information Technology for
Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act “meaningful
use” incentive
2. Utilize your EHR to implement patient population quality
measures such as chronic disease registries
3. Utilize your EHR to track the appropriate patient experience
and quality measures proposed for Accountable Care
Organizations
4. Exchange clinical information with other practices and
hospitals
5. Adopt clinical and administrative technologies to improve
patient care and service
Copyright 2014. Medical Group Management Association® (MGMA®). All rights reserved.
Know Your Quality Measures
1. Access measures (e.g., waiting times, 3rd next available
appointment)
2. Process measures (e.g., HbA1c testing (2X) annually)
3. Clinical outcome measures (e.g., HbA1c in poor control)
4. Patient experience measures (e.g., CAHPS patient
experience survey, patient satisfaction survey)
5. Patient safety measures (e.g., patient falls, catheter
associated UTI)
6. Preventive health measures (e.g., influenza immunization
rate, blood pressure measurement)
7. Utilization measures (e.g., 30-day hospital readmissions
emergency room use)
8. Patient reported health outcome measures (e.g., SF 12
health status questionnaire)

Deliver a Better Patient Experience
1. Use your EHR to assess quality of care and to schedule
preventive services for individual patients
2. Implement patient registries to evaluate surgical
outcomes, treatment protocols, and the health status of
patients with chronic disease
3. Improve access by extending hours
4. Implement electronic communications with patients,
hospitals and other providers
5. Expand patient education to include activity and nutrition
counseling.
6. Engage patients to accept personal responsibility for
their care
7. Evaluate being a Patient Centered Medical Home
(PCMH) or “PCMH Neighbor”
Copyright 2014. Medical Group Management Association® (MGMA®). All rights reserved.
Prepare for New Payment Mechanisms
1. Shared Savings, Bundled Payment and Global Payment
methods make physicians and hospitals, not insurance
companies or CMS, accountable for quality and utilization
(efficiency/cost)
• Rewards coordination of clinical care among providers
• Assesses the quality of healthcare to include patient
experience, outcomes, and health status
• Rewards outcomes not the volume of services
• Incentives are designed to encourage providers to
deliver efficient and quality care
2. Evaluate your systems for your ability to provide better
quality, lower cost care
Copyright 2014. Medical Group Management Association® (MGMA®). All rights reserved.
In the Future, the Successful Practice Will
Balance Value and Costs
• Both financial and nonfinancial metrics are
needed
• Quality and patient
experience metrics will be
the basis for payment
• The practice’s information
system will need to
aggregate data from
multiple sources and time
periods

Quality
Revenue
Satisfaction
36
Medical Groups Need the “Right Stuff”
The future competitive environment of accountable care will
reward practices who have:
• Lower utilization
• Better quality
• Better patient satisfaction
• Better patient outcomes
• Lower cost to the insurer
Which are the same factors that enable a practice to thrive in
today’s fee-for-service payment system
Good management will make the difference

most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.
