Dermatology Associates was named a “better performer” by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) due to superior operational performance compared with similar medical group practices nationwide.
The categories of cost management and productivity, capacity and staffing were recognized with honors. Nationwide, only 121 other practices were recognized in two categories.
This is the first year Dermatology Associates has received this honor from the MGMA. “We are delighted to receive this recognition,” says Lisa Conner, FACMPE, administrator with Dermatology Associates. “We strive for excellence in all areas of our practice and recognition likes this underscores the effectiveness of our efforts. Above all, our high patient satisfaction is the best achievement.”
The MGMA report, a benchmarking standard among medical groups for more than a decade, was produced using data from respondents to the MGMA 2016 Cost Survey as well as data from a questionnaire that assessed management behaviors, practices and procedures of better performers. The report profiles medical practices that have demonstrated success in one or more areas: profitability and cost management; productivity, capacity and staffing; accounts receivable and collections; and patient satisfaction.
