ACP MGMA Cost Survey
Get a Free Report with Practice Cost Benchmarks!
ACP is excited to invite you to participate in a streamlined Cost Survey jointly developed by ACP and the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA).
By completing the Cost Survey designed for ACP members by April 18, 2014, you will qualify for a free Customized Comparative Cost report. This report will compare your practice data to national benchmarks which can help you identify areas to improve your revenue management, lower your costs, and optimize staffing.
This report includes your practice compared to national benchmarks, variance, and percent for:
- Medical staffing ratios and costs
- Revenue, operating costs, provider cost, and net practice income or loss
- Accounts receivable and collection percentages
To get registered and start the survey go to http://online.mgma.org/acp-mgma-cost-survey. Participation is easier than ever with the use of this short checklist created to help you prepare the necessary data ahead of time.
If you (or your office manager) are a member of MGMA, simply log in. If you are not an MGMA member, you will need to register. This will give you access to the web survey portal for the collection period (through April 18th). Registration is required so the survey staff can contact you in case there is a question about your data. You will only have to register once but can go in as many times as needed to complete the survey.
We recommend that you first print the survey so that you can collect the data and prepare the information before entering the data in the web portal.
The data is kept confidential and a comprehensive explanation of what is done with it can be found here.
ACP and MGMA have collaborated on an exclusive landing page with many mutually beneficial resources for our respective members and their key staff. Access these great resources here.
