Samuel Kohan: Great Medical Practice Administrators

Many articles outline medical practice administrator qualifications. What if a medical practice is searching a GREAT administrator? What should they look for?
By: Samuel Kohan
Nov. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Many medical practices struggle when they need to recruit a new administrator (CEO or Executive Director). Usually a job listing for an administrator position can produce tens if not hundreds of resumes. Some candidates have the potential to evolve to a great administrator, a few are great administrators, and the remaining are good or mediocre administrators. The recruiting medical practice should determine who they want to hire. A potential administrator? A mediocre administrator? A good Administrator? Or, a great Administrator? If the choice is one of the first three types, then you may find MGMA’s  job description for practice administrators helpful in assessing the job applicants. However, if your practice selects to find and hire a great medical practice administrator, then this article is for you.

Key points to consider in search of a great medical practice administrator are:
•   Great medical practice administrators embody a paradoxical mix of personal humility and professional will. They are ambitious, but ambitious first and foremost for the company, not themselves.
•   They set up their successors for greater success.
•   Great medical practice administrators display a compelling modesty, are self-effacing and understated.
•   They are fanatically driven, infected with an incurable need to produce sustained results.
•   Great medical practice administrators display a workman like diligence – more plow horse than show horse.
•   They attribute success to others rather than themselves. When things go poorly, however, they blame themselves.
•   Great medical practice administrators have ferocious resolve, an almost stoic determination to do whatever needs to be done to make the medical practice great.

If you are not looking for great medical practice administrators, you may not find them.
