Member Review:

“Managing, measuring and improving our practice is a daily challenge. Utilizing the data in the MGMA Cost Survey Report allows me to make accurate comparisons to similar practices and gauge our performance. Having peer data to benchmark against, coupled with our own comparisons, provides valuable information for improvement in multiple areas, including efficiency, productivity, expenses and even staffing. The data is useful in either confirming my own findings or enlightening me as to which areas are weak as well as those that are strong.”
