A busy doctor is an easy target for embezzlement and in a down economy; a doctor may be even more at risk. The importance of educational, credit checks and drug screening will also be covered as well as practice policies and procedures implementation. Savvy embezzlers can fool even the most experienced employers, so learn how to protect yourself. Real life case examples will be discussed. "Tips to Protect Your Practice from Embezzlement" was published in The Journal of Medical Practice Management. Jan/Feb 2016.

Objectives Of The Presentation
At the conclusion of this course, physicians will learn how to protect the practice from employee embezzlement by instituting accounting controls, effective screening and management techniques. After attending this webinar, you will be able to:
  • Identify areas of exposure within your practice
  • Install the least disruptive routines that will help reduce theft
  • Institute a system of checks and balances
  • Develop a checklist for theft prevention
Why Should you Attend
You strive to hire the best people for your team; however, it is important to safeguard yourself in the event that someone on your watch attempts to defraud and embezzle from your practice. Most physicians have heard firsthand stories from colleagues who experienced embezzlement. It has been estimated that one in six doctors will experience embezzlement at some time during their practice years. Many have failed to install routines and checks and balances to minimize embezzlement within their own practice. This webinar will focus on the simple embezzlement control routines physicians can use without consuming a lot of the physician’s time. A pound of prevention is worth a ton of cure.
