Steve Robinson – S&R Consulting
by Richard Stokes
I once heard from a CPA that embezzlement can and does happen in just about every business. He then went on to say that as a business owner even if you don’t suspect that it is happening to you, you should ask yourself the question, “If I were going to steal from me, where would I do it and in a way that would raise the least amount of suspicion?”
This month’s speaker at the North Metro Medical Managers Association is Steve Robinson from S&R Consulting. Steve is going to be talking to us about embezzlement and posing the question: “Is it alive and well in your practice?” Steve says that this topic is particularly important today because we’re living in tougher economic times, physicians are getting squeezed everywhere and it’s much more prevalent than people think.
Some of the key points you can expect to take away from Steve’s presentation are:
- Why embezzlement could happen to you and your practice.
- Controls that you can put in place to preclude or impeded the occurrence.
- How to insure that money accountability is directed to the proper person and that no one person has complete control over this aspect.
We’re all very busy and as with any educational sessions/seminars you attend, the information you get is only useful if you do something with it. So, at a high level Steve hopes that after hearing his presentation you’ll take action in the following areas:
- Evaluate who handles the money
- Identify weak areas and implement controls
With over 24 years of experience in the healthcare field, Steve is a great resource so please ask questions at the meeting or get with him afterwards. If you are looking for additional online resources he says that Google is awash with articles on this topic but you can also search on:
