Accounting & Advisory Services for Medical Practices

November 17, 2022 by Holly Connolly
Outsourced Accounting and Advisory Services

When starting a business, many medical professionals hire 1) Medical staff and assistants to assist in providing the medical services and 2) a Practice Manager to handle the operations of running a clinic such as buying supplies, managing the schedule, and hiring staff.  To keep expenses low, many medical professionals choose to handle the accounting on their own at the start.  As the business grows, we often see either the Practice Manager move into certain accounting and finance tasks, or the slow transition of books routinely closed in 30 days moves to 45, 60 or 90 days as the provider’s schedule fills with more and more patients.  The time value gap of the provider spending an additional 30 minutes delivering patient care vs. 30 minutes on accounting grows as the patient load expands.
