3 ways AOAExcel™ helps protect your practice
Having a back-up plan at the ready could help alleviate a tight situation and offer a way to get back to business-as-usual.
End-of-year assessments mean doctors are looking back in review for direction in the year ahead, but it's what can't be anticipated that makes planning all the more important, especially as it relates to protecting the practice.
With threats from cyber-attacks as an ever-growing possibility and the ubiquitous risk for unforeseen challenges, having a back-up plan at the ready could help alleviate a tight situation and offer a way to get back to business-as-usual—as quickly as possible.
So take a moment to put those worries at ease by reviewing all the business—and personal—benefit plans offered via AOAExcelTM and the Endorsed Business Partners that help safeguard all aspects of members' practices, now and into the future.
- Protect your patients. Namely, protect patients' private health data. Failure to adequately protect patient medical records is a costly experience when recovering lost data can cost upwards of $240 per record, according to industry data. Ensure EHRs are encrypted and perform a risk analysis to evaluate potential for virtual vulnerability. Furthermore, add peace of mind with cyber-liability insurance available through AOAExcel.
- Protect your practice. Life's going to throw a few obstacles in the road—that's par for the course—but members can take steps to ensure they take those bumps in stride. Find safety-net insurance plans—everything from Malpractice Insurance to Accident Protection and a Group Business Overhead Expense Plan—through AOAExcel that will keep the practice moving smoothly even when life isn't.
- Protect your future. National Save for Retirement Week wrapped up two weeks ago, but that's no excuse to postpone any longer in preparing for retirement. Members can take advantage of free retirement planning consultation from AOAExcel and Endorsed Business Partner, AXA, to get on the right track for the future.
Whether members own a private practice or are employed by an eye care center, the AOA Online Member Benefit Center offers a convenient one-stop-shop for all benefits needs.
