Managers are the backbone of practices. We’re tasked with providing the strongest infrastructure possible that will allow our physicians to care for patients by delivering the ‘gold standard’ of medical care in the most efficient way.
Cranbury, NJ (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Engage Healthcare Communications, a full-service medical communications company, announces the launch of a new publication, Rheumatology Practice Management™. This new publication is a line extension of the company’s successful practice management franchise, which also includes Oncology Practice Management™ and Urology Practice Management™.
Rheumatology Practice Management will complement another Engage Healthcare publication, Value-Based Care in Rheumatology™, by specifically targeting the auxiliary medical office staff members who are tasked with running the business side of a practice, such as practice administrators, practice managers, and managing physicians. Rheumatology Practice Management is a niche publication focused on process solutions for rheumatology practices, and is designed to provide the rheumatology care team with the knowledge and skills required to keep abreast of today’s fast-changing medical/business environment.
Each issue of Rheumatology Practice Management will feature current topics of interest such as healthcare technology implementation, new models of care, staffing and personnel issues, reimbursement and coding changes, clinical trial information and drug updates, and the near- and long-term impacts of the Affordable Care Act.
In announcing the launch of this new publication, Engage Healthcare also announces a new partnership with the National Organization of Rheumatology Managers (NORM), whose members will collaborate with Engage Healthcare’s editorial team to develop relevant and timely content for the readership. Iris Nichols, the president of NORM, will take the helm as Rheumatology Practice Management’s new editor-in-chief. “Managers are the backbone of practices. We’re tasked with providing the strongest infrastructure possible that will allow our physicians to care for patients by delivering the ‘gold standard’ of medical care in the most efficient way. The very best way to create this infrastructure is through sharing ‘best practice’ standards with each other,” Nichols said. “It is an exciting time when the National Organization of Rheumatology Managers and Engage Healthcare Communications begin a partnership to launch a publication especially tailored for the all of the managers of rheumatology practices.”
“Rheumatology Practice Management supports our mission of integrating all of the stakeholders who are responsible for the optimal care of patients with rheumatic disease,” Nick Englezos, senior vice president/group publisher, The Lynx Group, and the publisher of Rheumatology Practice Management, said. “We’re thrilled to be working with NORM on this important publication designed to help office managers, administrators, and managing rheumatologists run their practices more efficiently.”
