Define policies and procedures to avoid common HR blunders
HR management is an important function in medical offices, but it traditionally has not been handled in the professional manner it should be. Every practice has a person who is responsible for handling HR issues, but he or she often lacks the professional training in HR management necessary to avoid common blunders.
In smaller practices, it may be a physician or a staff member who oversees HR issues on the side. In larger practices, the person assigned to handle the HR function is often a manager or administrator with other assigned duties.
