Physicians Practice and Area Businesses Partner to Improve Patient Care in Bucks County, Pennsylvania
Date:5/13/2009

BALTIMORE, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Physicians Practice and an alliance of businesses in Bucks County, Pa. have joined forces to help provide area physicians and their staff more time to devote to patient care. This new partnership is a unique program designed to help doctors in Bucks County better handle the cumbersome and time-consuming issues of managing a busy practice. Members of the Bucks County Partners include Doylestown Hospital, Fox Rothschild LLP, Harleysville National Bank, and The Selzer Company. Through this new collaboration, the Bucks County Partners will use Physicians Practice's extensive resources to deliver essential practice management tools to help local physicians manage the business aspects of medicine more efficiently and effectively.

Physicians' need for practice management information is an ever-increasing one. According to Pricewaterhouse Coopers, every hour a physician spends with a patient results in 36 minutes of paperwork. Additionally, the cost of running a medical practice has increased and now consumes as much as 62 percent of the revenue (2007 Medical Group Management Association Cost Survey), while reimbursement continues to decline from year to year (2006 and 2007 Physicians Practice Fee Schedule Surveys). Furthermore, according to the 2008 Future Physicians of America Survey, nearly 70 percent of medical students do not feel adequately prepared for managing or owning a practice in the future.

Under their new partnership, the Bucks County Partners will sponsor the distribution of Physicians Practice, America's Leading Practice Management Journal, to approximately 500 local doctors in Bucks County. Physicians Practice will be mailed monthly, beginning in May, and will serve to help physicians and their office staff address the numerous challenges faced by today's medical practices. The journal will also feature a section sponsored and written by the Bucks County Partners highlighting updates on business services relevant to doctors and the hospital's latest clinical offerings, as well as articles of interest to physicians in the region.

"Partnering with Physicians Practice is a unique opportunity to help us connect with local physicians," says Mark Connolly, Vice President of Private Banking of Millennium Wealth Management, a division of Harleysville National Bank. "We are pleased to offer doctors a practice management journal aimed to ensure their success."

"It is great to be able to work with the Bucks County Partners to bring practice management information and resources directly to physicians in Bucks County," says Marcy Holeton, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CMPMedica US. "Our expertise in practice management and technology will help medical practices in Bucks County to spend less time on business and more time with patients."
