Ware Langhorne & Associates
     
  Practice Operations  
     
 
Ware Langhorne & Associates supports individual physicians or medical groups starting new practice operations. Whether your practice is well-established or just starting out, this management support relieves the physician from being distracted from patient care by assuming the day-to-day management functions of the practice, including contract management, marketing, utilization management, continuous quality improvement activities, group purchasing, and support services such as human resources development, billing, and claims management services. Understanding of provider patient-centered concerns, market differences, customs, and values must be taken into consideration when evaluating management style and philosophy. In order to make a significant favorable impact on the cost of healthcare, Ware Langhorne & Associates works closely with the physicians to produce a vehicle that enables physicians to make the necessary changes to align appropriate business goals, medical goals and objectives, and respond more positively to the angst of change. The resulting response is a patient-centered, medically appropriate vision and plan.
