Practice Help

The responsibilities and requirements of practice management include managing the revenue cycle, compliance regulations, human resources, health information, and general business processes. The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) practice management department understands it can be difficult to keep up with the changing policies and compounding requirements all while continuing to serve patients. To ease the burden, the ACR has compiled and created key resources and tools to navigate the changing landscape of coding, documentation, billing, and practice guidelines.
