Those with careers in healthcare administration know there is always more work than hours in the day. It's easy to feel overscheduled and constantly short on time. But sometimes, the best thing you can do is to make time for another meeting ... particularly the ones geared to helping you work more efficiently and keeping you compliant. A monthly investment of a couple of hours can pay big dividends throughout the year.
