Job Website and Facebook page
One of the services we saw a need for was help in finding qualified staff. This year we launched our new job website – OCMS Medical Jobs. If you are a manager of a physician member, you may post any open position on this website at no charge. This website is promoted to several groups, organizations, schools and more. We also recently launched the Facebook page for this website so as soon as a position becomes open we post it.
The Rybar Group Partnership
This year, we have also partnered with The Rybar Group to offer two new services. The Rybar Group provides consultation services to medical practices, hospitals and healthcare systems on issues related to revenue cycle, compliance, reimbursement and more. Through this partnership, OCMS now offers a complimentary initial consultation to our practices with The Rybar Group. We also offer an online portal for members to submit their on-demand questions to difficult documentation, coding, billing and reimbursement questions. Click here to access the portal.

Quarterly Meetings and Conferences
Last, but not least, practice managers are invited four times a year to meetings either held at the OCMS office or at a location within Oakland County where speakers in the practice management profession talk on subjects ranging from hiring qualified staff to improving your revenue cycle. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, July 18th from 8:30-10:00 a.m. at the OCMS office. The Rybar Group will be attending to tell us about their services and take questions on billing, compliance, and more.
In the fall, don’t miss our one-day conference entitled “Improving Efficiency in Your Healthcare Practice” being held Tuesday, October 17th at Walsh College in Troy. We will have speakers on compliance, revenue cycle management, denial management and more. Plus, a panel of local health insurance representatives will be attending to give updates and take questions from attendees.
