How to Hire the Right Practice Administrator

Your practice administrator or practice manager is the person who is supposed to help take your practice to the next level. With all this responsibility placed on someone else, it’s important to choose the right person to lead your team. You have resumes galore, candidates lined up and you’re ready to interview. Before engaging in the candidate selection process, it’s important to make sure you’re asking the right question.

There are certain qualities that make the difference between an okay practice administrator and a great practice administrator.

According to Mara Shorr, partner and vice president of marketing and business development for Shorr Solutions, as well as Jay Shorr, our founder and managing partner, a good practice administrator “must have the ability to not only forecast financial plans, but also have that superb ability to analyze the results, and make immediate adjustments during the year.”
