Foreword by David B. Nash, M.D., M.B.A., FACP

"If you own, run, or have anything to do with a medical practice, you must read this book."

Today the practice of medicine must be recognized as a business. No longer can the business of the medical practice be based on the intuition of the physician or office manager.

And, running a profitable medical practice takes more than your staff’s strong clinical skills. Today’s practice of medicine is complex - declining reimbursement per patient or procedure, complexity in managing the patient process, technology needs, decision making processes to ensure optimal use of resources, outcomes management…and don’t forget the nuances of employee management!

This exciting book from Greenbranch Publishing, promises a new way for physicians and administrators to look at the medical practice.

Owen Dahl in Think Business! decodes business theories and applies them to today’s medical practice. He’ll take you far beyond marketing, human resources, finances and patient-orientated services. This book will revolutionize how you think about your medical practice. Owen is a nationally-known speaker and consultant in medical practice management, and has nearly 40 years in practice management -- from entrepreneur, to manager of a $75 million practice with 65 physicians, to academician developing teaching programs and credentialing programs.

This book is the inside scoop on the must-have information you need to evaluate the finances and business health of the practice. Depending on the intuition of the physician and the executive staff is old news. I’ll show you how to have a solid business approach to daily events in the practice.

So, if you didn’t get to business school, don’t worry. Dahl unravels the mysteries behind the management theories of gurus like Drucker, Porter, Senge, Collins, Maslow, Deming and Kotter – and then provides detail as a playbook for today’s medical practice. And if you do have your MBA, these practical applications for medicine will reinforce what you already know.

Filled with winning techniques -- With Think Business! You will learn:

Financial fundamentals – how to keep tabs on the practice
Employees as assets: How to recruit and retain them
