Dr April Armstrong – Founder and Director of Business for Doctors

"10 Steps to Better Billing"
The focus of this initial two-part presentation is to introduce the concept of the “Culture of Medicine” and the self-imposed psychological restrictions of many GPs and other practitioners. Identifying the barriers to changing the process of billing patients and the repercussions of change assists doctors in strategising in managing both internal and external influences that restrict their earning potential. The focus on the initial presentation is on quality medical services and delivery of a health service that the doctor enjoys delivering while been adequately rewarded. It suits practitioners in both bulk-billing and private billing services. The method can be applied to all dairy layouts from 2 patients per hour to 7 patients per hour. This workshop is suitable for all private practice specialists and GPs

"Top 10 tips for Specialist"
This incorporates many of the discussion points from the GP focused presentation focusing on the intra-professional relationships that grow a thriving professional private practice. Understanding the interactions between GPs and Specialists that can build a two-way relationship that is mutually beneficial, as well as beneficial for the patient. In addition this presentation looks at patient expectations, attracting desirable patients and reducing the likelihood of complaints.

"Pack and Stack"
The Medicare Benefits Schedule is the billing bible of medicine, yet rarely read and even more infrequently explained. This is a first of its kind workshop that identifies the areas to maximise Medicare item numbers and clearly explains the co-restrictions of Medicare billings with confirmation from the ASKMBS team in verification emails. Extensive emphasis is given to correct documentation and ethical billing, that is not billing a number simply for the patient to receive a rebate, but providing a valuable and valued service to the patient.
