Healthcare is an industry with a wealth of women moving it forward. Among the ranks of doctors, nurses, administrators and other healthcare professionals across the world are thousands of women and many, many mothers (including mine!) working hard on both the business and clinical sides of the medical industry.
With Mother’s Day and Women’s Health Week soon upon us, we at Power Your Practice want to thank all of the mothers and daughters reading for all that they do, for the healthcare industry and for their families. We hope that the advice we provided here at PYP this week has helped make your days at the medical practice a little easier.

Could Remote Employees Enhance Productivity at Your Practice?
Healthcare hasn’t always been a natural fit for telecommuting. As the industry grows more technologically connected, though, the trend is gaining steam and proving to be beneficial for many medical practices.
