Providers are faced with new challenges in consumerism, focused on dollars and increased quality of care. It is more difficult to maintain operating margins and deliver quality care. Practices are continually living in two worlds, balancing between the traditional reimbursement models while moving to value-based care. What are you to do?
Be prepared to hire the right people with this manual as one in a series of Simple Guides. This guide is focused on revenue cycle positions, those positions that have historically been considered back office.

- Analyzing a job description that focuses process-based achievements and supports job criteria
- Interviewing basics with sample behavior- based questions to provide insight on future performance
- Access to immediate resources such as simple forms and templates that can be personalized for your practice
