Why NEC with NORM?

Are you asking yourself : “Is it time to add a new Physician, maybe a mid-level? When do I know if the time is right? Everything is moving so fast!”  If you are starting to ask yourself these questions, then NORM and the NEC have the answers.

Join the NEC (NORM’s Education Committee) for an in-depth session “On-Boarding New Physicians and Mid-Levels” during our Annual Conference in Kansas City. NORM is “Getting Jazzed About Rheumatology” and the NEC would love to have you there as we examine key indicators for answering your first questions: Is it Time to Expand? What are the next steps? Well, we will answer these questions and more as we move through the process from the beginning to end.

Topics that will be covered are:

  • The Search Is On,
  • On-Boarding,
  • Contracting,
  • Credentialing,
  • Marketing and
  • Growing Pains.

We will review the rules as we explore various scenarios for incident to billing.   You will leave empowered and ready to tackle On-Boarding a new physician or mid-level into your practice.

Join the NEC in Kansas City as we are pumped and ready to get our Jazz on as we dive into On-Boarding Providers.  Are you there yet? If the answer is YES, MAYBE or The possibility is in your future!; then you will find this presentation extremely valuable and leave with a checklist to get you started.

Our session is Friday, September 15 at 4:30 p.m. NEC’s session will be followed by our JAZZ reception and dinner. See you there and “Get JAZZED about RHEUMATOLOGY!

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
