Over the years, the business side of medicine has grown more complex with increasing federal regulations and data collection needed to obtain proper reimbursement and to avoid penalties. Practices have more complicated coding requirements, and these requirements change frequently. There is a national plan to increase the use of health information exchange networks with penalties for practices that do not meet the requirements. (These systems require ever-increasing vigilance on the part of health care professionals as well as federal, state, policies, and procedures to protect patient security). The new methods of protecting consumers from medical identity theft are being introduced. Changes contribute to the need for every strong administration of medical practices. Medical administrators and managers must be knowledgeable about competition, marketing, technology, reimbursement, confidentiality, privacy, security, and relationships between physicians and other health care entities.
