Operations Improvement Plan

When medical practices operate efficiently, the quality of patient care is greatly improved. In the past, quality measures have typically focused on the clinical aspects of a practice. But now quality measurements have expanded beyond the clinical side to include business practices as well.

TMA Practice Consulting is offering up to 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ , per physician, when an Operations or Billing/Collections Assessment is performed for their practice. TMA consultants can assist practices in making quality improvements by conducting a comprehensive diagnostic review of practice operations. The goal is to identify practice deficiencies and make recommendations to improve overall operational efficiency. The CME credit is awarded based on specific criteria as outlined below.
