Knowledge is power. Position yourself today to benefit from unavoidable changes now rather than be a victim to them later. Health Care Reform will bring unprecedented change to both billing and documentation requirements for health care reimbursement. By knowing what’s coming and why, you’ll be able to maximally position yourself for the transition, consider your options and alternatives, and benefit from getting them started now, ahead of the pack. You’ll begin to see why developing an online practice is one of the best choices you can make to secure your financial future now.

Ms. Wright is a clinician and speaks your language. She’ll explain the big picture, how you can make easy changes this year, and she’ll take your questions at the end of the webinar.
