Personnel issues present some of the most burdensome non-clinical challenges to productive, efficient and cost-effective practice operation, including various legal and financial risks. Mid-Lakes will provide staffing services utilizing individuals that you select to meet your non-physician staffing needs, assign them to you, and bill you a single rate that incorporates all of the following:
- Employee wages, withholdings and statutory expenses
- Payroll processing (checks, withholding, federal and state filings and deposits)
- Fringe Benefits and Administration
- Temporary staff coverage
- Employee Handbooks
- Job descriptions
- Performance appraisal
- Counseling & Discipline
- Policies and Procedures
- Compliance (OSHA, etc.)
- Wage surveys and scales
- Group rate discounts (benefits, insurances, etc.)
- Benchmarking – local and MGMA (national)
Physicians are able to maintain control of personnel while transferring administrative, financial risk and regulatory compliance issues to Mid-Lakes, which has the systems and expertise to accommodate all personnel-related functions. Currently, 105 of Mid-Lakes’ 135 employees are assigned to client offices.
They include Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, RN’s, LPN’s and Medical Assistants, transcriptionists, secretaries and registration clerks. The structure provided by Mid-Lakes in this environment allows for fewer, more focused and accountable employees and the elimination of the non-financial burdens of personnel administration.
Midlakes provides the flexibility to integrate staff benefits with client physician retirement programs, and choice as to individual fringe benefits.
