RSRS is pleased to announce the publication of a free book: The New 2017 Practice Closure Planner & Timetable, developed by RSRS to help retiring and relocating physicians follow all the steps necessary to complete a medical practice closure. This new book also contains an important tool that will help physicians alleviate the strain on staff and family when practice closure is sudden and unanticipated.
To develop this book, RSRS called upon twenty-years of experience assisting well over 1,000 doctors with the various issues and tasks involved in practice closure. RSRS also gathered advice from outside experts.
Closing a medical practice is a multi-stage, time-sensitive program and this new book makes the process more manageable. When closing a medical practice in Canada, great care must be taken to ensure compliance with current rules and regulations while also tending to the multitude of details regarding:
- Retention of Patient and Business Records
- Storage of EMR Patient Records
- Leaving a Group Practice
- Patient Notification
- Finding a Physician for Patients
- Financial Affairs
- Lease Considerations
- Office Furniture/Equipment
- Post-closure Considerations
- And more
Of course, the suggested timelines and valuable information in the book are intended as general advice and are not a substitute for a personal consultation with an RSRS expert. When planning your practice closure, RSRS will take into account your particular objectives and circumstances.
