About Great Practices
Keeping your business as healthy as you keep your patients.
Are you practicing medicine the way you envisioned when you first thought about becoming a doctor?
Between regulation and the restrictive requirements of insurance payers, running a practice is more complicated and less fun (and a lot less profitable!) than you probably envisioned. That’s where we come in.
Our goal at Great Practices is to help you get a little closer to your ideal of how to practice medicine.

Ken Stern, President
My wife and I are both cancer survivors and the experience changed my priorities. We received great medical care and I wanted some way to give back – to serve the doctors serving our community. After success in my decades spent in technology development, I founded Great Practices to use my business acumen and experience in problem-solving to help doctors reduce the pain of running their offices, so they can do what they love, care for patients.
I’ve always taken pride in knowing and being able to share the best way of doing whatever it is I’m doing. My earliest memory is watching, fascinated, as an electrician hung basement lights in our new house. Apparently, I was 2 years old. I will still stop to watch and learn from anyone skilled at whatever they do. Whether adopting someone else’s approach and improving on it or inventing a better way myself – I was recently granted my 12th patent – the origin of the idea is irrelevant. It only matters that now I have a new best way that I can use and share.
We constantly look for ways to improve your workflow. That includes learning what works well for our other clients and sharing that with you. We know that both extraordinary attention to detail AND seeing the big picture are necessary for your success. Once you are our client, we freely share whatever may help – when you do better, we do better!
