Doctors decide to practice medicine for various reasons; maybe they experienced something as a child or they really just want to help people. But another major reason physicians practice medicine to earn a living and participate in, what is hopefully, a money-making business. The education of running a business, however, is not something taught in medical school. Any doctor about to start a practice, or join one, needs to have a basic knowledge in contracts, insurance and making money. Top selling author, Steven M. Hacker MD, discusses the business side of owning a practice and provides insight into what doctors should be on the lookout for before making the leap into a private practice.

Thinking about the start of a new year brings about talk of resolutions and change for the upcoming year. We thought we’d stick with that theme for January’s podcast. While most people are resolving to workout more and get in shape, Nuesoft wants to stress a healthy lifestyle at work.

Let’s face it. There is a lot of competition in the practice management and EHR software field. One thing (among many) that sets Nuesoft apart from other vendors is that we are Mac compatible.

After hearing from lots of physicians that use Mac systems in their offices, Katie Matlack with Software Advice, a software comparison and [cont...]

Nuesoft’s August podcast, “Reducing Liability and Improving Employee Satisfaction Through Strong HR Policies” explores some of the downsides of not having buttoned up hiring and HR processes, and offers tips for practices that want to polish their approach to HR. According to Denise Algire, a consultant with Risk Navigation Group and the podcast’s featured speaker, practices tend to be more familiar with the state and federal laws and regulations that pertain to hiring mid-level providers, but may not understand that there [cont...]
