216-Online: Management Concepts for Coding, Billing, and Reimbursement – Section 4 of “Management Concepts for the New Manager”


Contact Hours (Points): 1

Management practices can be a difficult concept for a person who is relatively new to a management position in a clinical laboratory. Unfortunately, many of us are promoted to the managerial role based on our technical abilities rather than our knowledge of management principles. The first month and in fact the first year or two can be a difficult learning experience for the new manager who is trying to understand budgeting, cost accounting, scheduling, and billing. It is hoped that this course will assist the manager, new and experienced, with some of the tasks that must be performed as a laboratory manager.
