Running any medical practice comes with all sorts of challenges. Some you expect, and others blindside you. Many people do not see all the hurdles that will come their way through medical accounting errors or mistakes. GJR Consulting has years of experience working with doctors, dentists, and other healthcare providers to help get their finances on the right track.
4 Most Common Mistakes in Medical Accounting Services
The healthcare industry has many unique aspects, but the challenges of maintaining accounting and financial records are universal across most businesses. These are some of the issues you can run into without professional accounting services on your side.
- You’re trying to manage everything yourself.
Many of us like to think of ourselves as a jack of all trades. You might even like being involved in every aspect of your practice, but no one can do it all. As your medical or dental practice grows, you’re going to find all new responsibilities. Don’t limit yourself by refusing to partner with someone else. GJR Consulting can take over your medical practice accounting and let you focus on all your other responsibilities.
- You don’t follow a set schedule for financial reporting.
Do you have a five-year plan for your growth and revenue? Without accurate cash flow forecasting, you won’t be able to build for the future. You need a system in place for regular financial reporting to know where you started, where you are, and where you’re going.
- You aren’t using, or you don’t know how to use, your accounting software.
Healthcare professionals are expected to know how to use a broad range of technologies. You might not have thought to invest in the best accounting software or how to train your staff in the best practices for using it. GJR Consulting offers bookkeeping services and training in software like QuickBooks for your staff.
- You aren’t able to keep up with billing or coding changes.
Even in dental accounting services, there are always going to be regulation changes in new billing codes or new laws. Without professional assistance, you’ll never keep up. Our accounting firm is continually educating ourselves and training in the latest tax services across multiple industries.
