This title includes a Foreword by John W Bachman, Professor of Medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota. Mastering the art of medical practice management requires knowledge that most physicians don't learn in medical school, residency, and fellowship training. Successful practice management in the 21st century requires physicians to understand how to organize and manage a practice, manage their finances, recruit, work with, and manage people within and outside of the practice, improve healthcare delivery and clinical outcomes, and ensure compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. "Medical Practice Management in the 21st Century: The Handbook" addresses multiple aspects of medical practice management. It offers both background information and practical tools. The workbook format, supported by web-based tools, allows busy physicians to gain a basic understanding of many topics, determine strategies for their practices, and seek additional information when they want it. This guide will be ideal for both physicians who need business guidance as they begin their careers and physicians who are already in practice and want to enhance their business skills. Many physicians can't afford or choose not to hire a professional practice administrator or manager; this book will help them assume managerial responsibilities with the same level of confidence that they bring to clinical care. Physicians in academic medical centers who manage departments, programs, or research studies will also benefit. "This book is essential for any clinician planning to open a new practice or attempting to improve the quality and efficiency of an existing practice. Read and learn." - John Bachman MD, in the Foreword. "Written for the busy practitioner - clear, concise, and practical without any wasted space. I wish I had had this resource when I was starting practice. It's the bible for practice management, just as the "Washington Manual" was in earlier years." - Robert S Galvin, MD, Director of Global Healthcare for General Electric. "Important. Crosses many boundaries, covering a wide variety of topics. Guides physicians in developing the infrastructure that they need to succeed." - John Fallon, MD, Chief Physician Executive, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. "There is no better book or resource to use to develop the necessary proficiency to run a first-class, stellar practice than this. All who read this book will be able to ensure that every patient has a positive experience with your practice and will not only enjoy the experience but will tell other physicians, their family and their friends about you and your practice and thus make your practice thrive and prosper." - Dr Neil Baum, Clinical Associate Professor of Urology, Tulane Medical School, New Orleans, Louisiana. "I love the chapter on financial management. It is very complete and gives a non-business major a good grasp of complicated information." - Allen R. Wenner, MD, family medicine practitioner, West Columbia Family Medicine, South Carolina. "I like the format of the exhibits. In the chapter on financial management, the side-by-side problem/solution approach is easily understandable and lends itself to a solution oriented approach. I can spot my own practice's issues and immediately understand what to do without searching through a lot of text." - Tom Sena, MD, President of Raleigh Children and Adolescents Medicine, Raleigh, North Carolina. "Full of good material which I am actively planning to use. Extremely helpful!" - Dr Damian McHugh, President, Raleigh Emergency Medicine Associates, Raleigh, NC.

Read Reviews by leading physicians: “We do not do enough to prepare our trainees for the business of practice. Likewise, so many creative physicians have commercializable ideas, but find out the hard way how a good idea does not a successful business make. Hacker’s book is a gem in that it speaks to both of these challenges in an engaging way. It is chock-full of wisdom, easily read, and very enjoyable reading. I’ll be recommending it to all of our trainees.” Joseph C. Kvedar, MD Director, Center for Connected Health Partners HealthCare System, Inc. Associate Professor of Dermatology Harvard Medical School “Part I allows the reader to envision the necessary activities for opening his or her own practice in the voice of the author, while Part II is a guide for budding entrepreneurs. Part II covers victories and defeats in clear, concise tones that anyone can appreciate and empathize with. Hemingwayesque, concise, and practical, this book would be an ideal gift from department chairs to their senior residents at the start of their last year of training, or a personal purchase around the same time if the chairperson is too cheap to buy it for you. If you are reading this, turn the page and take the roller-coaster ride. Enjoy!” Daniel Mark Siegel MD, MS (Management and Policy) Clinical Professor of Dermatology, SUNY Downstate Director, Procedural Dermatology Fellowship American Academy of Dermatology President 2011 “After reading this book, I am now more certain than ever that my impressions of Dr. Hacker nearly twenty years ago were correct. His book is an honest, open, forthright attempt to share with his colleagues those precious details he has learned about establishing a medical practice and becoming an entrepreneur. I thought this book was fun to read, informative, concise, and blatantly honest. As I told Dr. Hacker after reading his book, ‘I think you have taught an old dog some new tricks.’ “ Franklin P. Flowers, MD Professor, University of Florida College of Medicine Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery
