Needs Assessment and Description
Medical practice management involves managing a broad
spectrum of personnel, compliance with regulations,
and financial operations, and interpreting constant
changes in reimbursement policies. Strategic planning
is a key function of a reproductive endocrinology and
infertility-in vitro fertilization (REI-IVF) practice manager
to avoid pitfalls that come with handling operational
systems reactively rather than proactively. This live
session for practice managers and clinicians involved in
practice management will review the basic elements of
successful strategic planning, keys to implementing the
plans and anticipating change, and evaluation of results
for improving future performance. Also included in
this session are strategies for successful human resource
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be
- Identify basic elements of successful strategic decision
making and planning.
- Explain the different elements involved in the
successful implementation of a strategic plan.
The most effective way to engage staff in the
implementation of a strategic plan is to:
a. Provide an in-service training to present the
organization’s strategic plan.
b. Create a handout of the organization’s strategic plan
and distribute it to appropriate staff.
c. Involve staff in the strategic-planning process.
