NCMS FAQ of the Week: Practice Policy and Procedures

Due to a high volume of questions coming in through the Member Resource Center, the NCMS will provide a Frequently-Asked-Question (FAQ) for its members each week to make them more aware of current medical and health care issues that their colleagues are having.

Q: I am looking to update my practice guidelines and patient forms. Does the Society offer any resources that can help with this process?

A: Yes, the Society publishes a policy and procedure manual every couple of years to provide its members with tools and resources to update their practice regulations and forms. The 2010 Medical Practice Policy and Procedure Manual can be utilized specifically for your practice. It provides guidelines on patient relations, communication, privacy and security, patient safety, financial management, employment policies and several patient forms necessary to run a practice. Using this customized manual will decrease the amount of time spent updating this information and allow more time for patient care. The manual, which is in CD format, is available online at our bookstore and can be purchased by NCMS members at a discounted rate.

Click here to order and view the manual’s table of contents to see what other tools are available. Questions regarding practice management can be directed to Franklin Walker, NCMS Foundation Director of Programs and Practice Management, at 919-833-3836 or [email protected].
