Physicians and their medical practices today face innumerable problems and challenges in analyzing current market changes in the medical field. Do they understand and have the skills and knowledge to make advantageous decisions related to the increasingly complex situations in which they find themselves? Do they merge, oversee their office managers more closely, sign their own checks, and scrutinize accounts, or do they need a professional to come in and evaluate their practice and prepare a comprehensive financial assessment? This Accounting Handbook for Medical Practices gives physicians a valuable, usable, and readable journey through the proper processes of financial accounting and related issues. Sample charts, accounting formulas, and informative case studies enhance each chapter.
