Content of the Workshop

What are internal controls?

Internal controls are the measures implemented by management to achieve its financial and operational goals to:

  • Protect assets from accidental loss or theft;
  • Ensure the reliability of financial information;
  • Ensure compliance with laws affecting the
    operations of the practice; and
  • Promote efficient and effective operations.
GoodX Internal Controls

Why are internal controls necessary?

Any healthcare practice is a business which needs to be run effectively and efficiently in order to provide top healthcare to patients and be financially beneficial for owners, practitioners who work on commission and personnel who earn salaries. If all parties involved in the healthcare practice work toward the productivity of the practice, all parties benefit.

Who needs to become acquainted with this information?

These guidelines are of particular importance for the owner of the healthcare practice and the practice manager (or person who fulfils the role of the practice manager) who need to check that the tasks are completed and reports are generated and analysed.

Every practitioner must be able to set up their own reports, be able to draw the necessary reports and be involved in analysing and interpreting the data so that they can have first hand knowledge of what is happening in the practice.

How to implement internal controls?

There are some critical business processes that need to be completed for the healthy operation of the practice. The Healthcare Management Internal Controls diagram provides an overview of the internal controls that need to be performed on a regular basis to check if the critical business processes were completed successfully and correctly.

The control measures are performed by following these actions:

  • implementing & following best practice processes;
  • generating the relevant reports;
  • analysing & interpreting the information in the reports; and
  • responding to the information, for example, by making corrections on the system OR implementing management decisions based on the information to make the practice more profitable.
