Handbook of Concierge Medical Practice Design Book Excerpt:

In concierge medicine, physicians develop amenities-rich membership programs and collect a monthly or annual membership fee to pay for the amenities in addition to the medical services rendered. Handbook of Concierge Medical Practice Design examines the many considerations physicians must make prior to transitioning their practices into concierge services. Maria K. Todd, a recognized expert in concierge medicine, branding, consulting, healthcare, marketing, medical tourism, planning, and physician practice administration, explains how to set up a concierge practice. She describes how this new business model affects workflow and outlines financial considerations—including managed care payer relations, the hybrid practice, and predictive modeling—to uncover the hidden factors that affect bottom-line performance. The book supplies readers with models for creating a business plan and a strategy for transforming a practice into a concierge practice. It concludes by covering the legal aspects of creating a concierge practice. It includes patient acquisition and retention strategies as well as detailed plans for adding additional doctors and physician extenders, such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants. The book provides sample employment contracts and advice on how to select and work with consultants. It includes chapters on business process re-engineering, workflow management, financial considerations, competitive analysis, developing a business plan, and how to market the new practice.

The Florida Domicile Handbook Book Excerpt:

The Florida Domicile Handbook provides insights into the significant advantages, and especially the financial advantages, of domiciling in Florida. During the current housing crisis, homeowners are alarmed to see the increases in interest rates and realty taxes raising their mortgage payments beyond their reach. Though some reductions in payments can be achieved by searching for special financing, opportunities for significant savings in this area are limited by prevailing money market conditions. More promising are the savings in reality taxes that are possible by changing domicile. Florida has recently enacted legislation through its Homestead Act that limits substantially the annual increases in realty tax. Florida is also one of the few states that has no income tax. These two incentives alone have been a major factor in creating the stream of new residents who have chosen to declare Florida as their principal residence. As the Baby Boomers retire, it is anticipated that this stream will grow into a flood. Anticipating this trend, the authors have written the most comprehensive book on the subject of Florida domiciling. It addresses a variety of topics including: • Advantages of Florida domiciling • Detailed steps to follow in achieving a Florida domicile • When, where and how to buy a home • Advice on how to find a good Realtor and lender • Legal perspectives into laws affecting new residents • How to register and insure cars and boats • List of resources and web sites for staying healthy, including state programs, medical initiatives and healthcare coverage options.• Estate planning advice

The biopsychosocial model is the major theoretical model underpinning all contributions, but use is also made of other models. * Informative and practical: a guide to action * An authoritative, critical and evidence based synthesis of knowledge that will guide best practice * Easy-to-use format intended for practitioners who want to ensure their practice is state-of-the-art

Guide to Organisation Design Book Excerpt:

Business failure is not limited to start ups. In America alone between 1990 and 2000, there were over 6.3 million business start-ups and over 5.7 million business shut-downs. Risk of failure can be greatly reduced through effective organisational design that encourages high performance and adaptability to changing circumstances. Organisation design is a straightforward business process but curiously managers rarely talk about it and even more rarely take steps to consciously design or redesign their business for success. This new Economist guide explores the five principles of effective organisation design, which are that it must be: driven by the business strategy and the operating context (not by a new IT system, a new leader wanting to make an impact, or some other non-business reason). involve holistic thinking about the organisation be for the future rather than for now not to be undertaken lightly—it is resource intensive even when going well be seen as a fundamental process not a repair job.
