Your front desk can either run smoothly or make your life a living nightmare — it’s really up to you.

The answer to a smooth-running front desk always comes down to fundamentals. How you train and hold your front desk staff accountable for these fundamentals is the key. The problem is, how are you supposed to find the time to implement a structured training plan when you barely have enough time to breathe?

This is where practice service and management expert, Tracy Bird, FACMPE, CPC, CPMA, CEMC, CPC-I, can help. On Tuesday, July 2nd at 1:00pm ET, Tracy will present a 60-minute online training designed for your front desk staff. After your team attends this training, you’ll have confidence that they have a solid handle on essential fundamentals to ensure they will be consistently friendly, dependable, detailed, and responsive (to patients and other employees).

Here are just a few of the foundational skills your front desk staff will gain by attending this upcoming online training:

  • Master front desk professionalism with office staff and patients
  • Keep calm, even when a patient is really upset
