NORWALK, Conn., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announced today that its second Practice Rx conference will be held at the Downtown Philadelphia Marriott Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 19-20, 2014.

Having debuted earlier this year, Practice Rx provides physicians and healthcare administrators with tools and expert strategies to improve the financial and overall health of their practice. The conference will focus on pain points plaguing medical practices across the country and give participants the guidance they need to initiate positive change in these areas.  Attendees will walk away with strategies that can be implemented immediately, including how to:

  • Control variable costs and make the most of fixed overhead to increase overall revenue
  • Enhance scheduling techniques to accommodate more patients without frustrating staff
  • Reduce accounts receivable to 30 days or less
  • Increase revenue by ensuring you are capturing all of your billable services
  • Minimize the impact of disgruntled patients on practice morale and productivity

"With the great success of the first Practice Rx, we are very excited to be offering it to even more physicians and office administrators on the East Coast," said Keith Martin, Group Editorial Director, UBM Medica US. "There is a definite need from physicians and their staff to learn the best ways to improve the financial soundness of their practice, and Practice Rx aims to fulfill that need."
