Leading a group practice is very different from managing in other settings. This book will provide you with the fundamental knowledge you need to thrive in this unique environment.

"This is a superb introduction to the quickly changing and challenging world of physician practice management. Readers will have a solid foundation in all the activities that encompass the managerial world of this sector of healthcare delivery. They will be well-prepared for the journey toward excellence and leadership in providing the population with accessible and affordable care with a cost-quality ratio that enhances value to all stakeholders---patients, physicians, insurers, vendors, hospitals, and the administrators themselves."---Stephen S. Mick, Ph.d., CHE Arthur Graham Glasgow Professor and Chair Department of Health Administration Virginia Commonwealth University (from the Foreword)
