Offering consulting services and innovative business tools, our goal is to help practices to better understand the environment in which they operate. What has evolved over time is a company focused on all aspects of the healthcare market that pertain to physicians, from insurance company contracting, to policies and procedures, and how those affect revenue and delivery of services to patients. We deliver expert advice and solutions for improving practice workflow, operations, marketing, social media, and patient education. We provide access to information that can prove enlightening rather than confusing.
As our team has grown, so has our ability to meet the varied needs of our clients, resulting in the creation of our two sister companies, Patient Centered Solutions, a division that is exclusively focused on helping practices achieve Patient Centered Medical Home status, and IPMSO which enables independent practices to harness group buying power and top-tier medical supply pricing.
Founded in January 2007 by Susanne Madden, The Verden Group is a visionary consulting firm focused on shaping the landscape of advocacy by empowering medical practices to navigate through the increasingly complex business of healthcare, and to advocate on their own behalf to insurers and regulators.
A focus on adolescent medicine is important as teens have significantly different medical concerns compared to preteens and younger children. Read more here via PCC.
"While pediatric and adolescent medicine are clearly related, there are a wide variety of differences that clinicians need to pay attention to. Pediatricians only need to focus on the growth and development of children, while adolescents are developing into adults. Their set of social and hormonal issues can make treatment and examinations trickier to manage without the right training."
PCC's Director of Pediatric Solutions, Chip Hart, shares how to set up a patient recall system that will help even out workload, stabilize practice revenue, and set kids up for good health.
"For a successful recall effort, you’ll need data, materials, and a plan, of course. First, think ahead 6 or 9 or 12 months and identify the times of year when the office is slow, or at least minimally busy. This is the ideal time for patient recall efforts, and these efforts will need to begin far enough ahead of time to get kids on the schedule and last throughout the slow period, which for many practices is typically winter or summer."
