Solutions to Relieve Neurology Practice Headaches
If you’re feeling some professional discontent as a neurologist, you’re not alone. Tedious administrative tasks, spending ‘too many hours at work’, and insufficient income top the reasons neurologists cite for feeling dissatisfied. Not surprisingly, neurology ranks among the top ten specialties for burnout, with 41% of neurologists experiencing burnout personally. This is likely a key reason why less than fewer than half of your neurologist colleagues would choose medicine again as a career.
Neurology practitioners are often riddled with doubts when assessing billing information, especially when it involves complex procedures. The sheer number of CPT codes and conditions involved in the billing process can be overwhelming even for professional billers, let alone a novice with a limited grasp of the ever-changing codes and other necessities.
If you’re like most neurologists, you dedicate considerable time to evaluating patients. You assess 15 or more patients per day, balancing scheduled consultations with emergency visits. The nature of neurology requires that you devote significant time and attention to differential diagnoses, workup, and individualized treatment plans.
