Clinical independence for surgeons refers to the conditions in which individual surgeons are free to use their professional judgment when caring for and treating their patients without undue or inappropriate interference from other people or parties. Surgeons become medical specialists through extensive training and experience, evaluating data to create recommendations for patients. Patients want their doctors to be free to prescribe clinically acceptable treatments, even while they have the right to self-determination, which allows them to choose which medical interventions to undergo within certain bounds.
At NexGen, we put surgeons’ clinical independence and flexible lifestyles first by offering unique options to lessen workloads, improve quality of life or take more time off from the operating room.
The Challenges Surgeons Face With Administrative Burdens
The amount of paperwork, administrative difficulties and regulatory restrictions facing physicians is growing, and this trend will not stop anytime soon. Doctors are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with their work because of prior authorizations, quality measures and other complicated issues that keep them up at night. This also leads to physicians spending less time with patients.
A common grievance among doctors is the amount of time prior permission takes in the practice’s daily routine. Prior authorizations take up over an hour of a doctor’s day, while staff members deal with payer approvals for an extra twelve hours a week.
NexGen’s Model for Clinical Independence
With NexGen Surgical, surgeons are embracing a better way to practice and putting their hectic operation schedules on hold. With our clinical independence for surgeons model, dedicated surgeons may maintain a good work-life balance without having to move, answer calls in their spare time or spend time away from their practices handling staffing, invoicing or payroll concerns. When you work for NexGen Surgical, you may take advantage of a flexible schedule and concentrate on what you do best: caring for patients.
With NexGen Surgical, surgeons have the freedom to devote more time to patient care, skill development and rejuvenation away from the practice. Our surgeons spend more time unwinding after a day in the OR instead of spending hours dealing with the business matters that come with running your practice. We manage the back office, staff issues, and insurance company interactions to free up our surgeons to concentrate entirely on their patients.
Focus on Patient Care
Maintaining profitability in your surgical practice requires giving regular evaluations top priority. Expanding specializations and increasing surgical capacity are also essential. Administrative procedures, including reimbursement, procedure codes and fee schedules, should be reviewed by practices to ensure they make sense as the business expands. To meet our client’s budgetary objectives without sacrificing patient care, NexGen collaborates with surgical centers to help improve these parameters.
Surgeons can concentrate on patient care when practices use NexGen to help with patient acquisition. We help alleviate our clients’ concerns about surgeon shortages and OR utilization. Since surgeons are our most significant asset, NexGen ensures they are strong performers with experience managing a patient care team.
According to a study by the National Library of Medicine, organizations that provide patient-centered care combine clinical competence with the most recent and reliable research findings and established patient values. Using these methods benefits surgeons and healthcare systems through increased satisfaction among patients’ relatives, improved standing among patients of the providers, increased output and morale among medical professionals and support personnel, better distribution of resources, decreased costs and raised profit margins throughout the care continuum.
Balancing Clinical and Administrative Responsibilities
The dynamic and intricate case management process calls for both administrative and clinical expertise. In addition to giving your clients excellent care and support, a case manager must oversee documentation, coordination, communication and compliance. How can the clinical and administrative aspects of case management be balanced?
- Assess your workload and priorities
- Set boundaries and expectations
- Integrate clinical and administrative tasks
- Seek feedback and support
- Learn and grow
- Adapt and innovate
Surgeons should be given more time to focus on patient care, develop new skills and relax away from the practice. This is why NexGen Surgical works with insurance providers, handles employee issues, manages the back office, and interacts with administrators. We never take away surgeons’ authority, even when we decrease administrative obstacles. Our mission is always to support our surgeons’ particular goals and give them exceptional service.
The Surgeon’s Perspective: Life With NexGen
Hospital and health system jobs can provide a steady income and leadership chances in huge organizations. Still, many physicians want more: work-life balance, time to raise a family and more control over their personal and professional lives. Working with NexGen provides an independent venue for surgeons to network, exchange ideas and produce policy suggestions that reflect their specific interests and requirements. NexGen surgeons experience less burnout and a better work-life balance than physicians in other settings.
