Movers and Shakers: Sarasota-Based Practice Works MD Announces Grand Opening


SARASOTA – Practice Works MD, an experienced medical practice management consulting firm, announces the grand opening of its Sarasota office. Located at 2601 Cattlemen Road, Suite 406, the Practice Works MD team specializes in providing cost-effective and process-efficient solutions that help physicians and office managers achieve critical practice objectives. “The demands of operating an efficient, compliant and successful medical office can be challenging for any specialty practice,” said Karen Vale, CEO of Practice Works MD. “We bring all the pieces together, so physicians and their staff can focus more on what they do best: provide exceptional care to their patients.”

The company runs under the direction of Karen Vale, an industry professional with more than 30 years of experience in healthcare services. Vale brings an extensive entrepreneurial background in the areas of operational and financial management. In 2000, she formed Partners in Practice, a full-service physician practice management solution firm, which expanded to include 260 providers and 54 physician practices in just 10 years. Following the acquisition of Partners in Practice by Origin Healthcare Solutions, Vale upheld the role of Senior Vice President and General Manager for the organization’s Florida location, and was responsible for successful restructuring, transition and implementation of an offshore operations model.

As a local source for medical office management solutions, Practice Works MD staff is trained to handle important processes, including revenue cycle management and coding and compliance services. After a thorough assessment, Practice Works MD establishes objectives, develops strategies and implements plans that help medical practices achieve accurate billing, streamlined systems management, precise reporting, compliance, efficient financial and administrative operations, and improved cash flow and collection rates. “We are committed to providing realistic recommendations and results-oriented services based on proven methodologies,” said Vale.
