i have the feeling that we are overpopulated with staff, yet there doesnt seem to be any end to the workload we have to do. I could hire and hire but i am sure that would not really achieve anything more. for instance I could employ a new administrator to help enter the letters better ( at the moment we are just scanning them in and not being too good at picking out the main points on the letters and READ coding them) or someone who could spend more time ( and therefore allow a better understanding of) on PBC, or audit. where does it all end?
so, for a 5000 patient practice, how much should the administration costs be, for personnel? and how much for clinical staff?
