Tips for holding effective practice meetings

Is your orthopaedic group spending more time at meetings and accomplishing less? These six tips can shift the balance.

Schedule carefully
The larger the group, the more important it is to schedule meetings far in advance. Hold meetings on different days or times so that no one doctor is regularly inconvenienced (or unable to attend) due to office, surgery, or call schedules.

Set an agenda
About a week before the meeting, have your practice manager poll all members of the group and develop an agenda. Send the agenda to everyone by e-mail 3 days before the meeting. Knowing that a pet project will be discussed is sure to increase attendance.
