© 2009 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA Joe Schmitz, ATC, is working as a pediatric physician extender at St. John’s Sports Medicine in Missouri. As a pediatric physician extender, Schmitz helps improve the physician's efficiency. Athletic trainers working as physician extenders assist in physicians offices by: Saving time : Certified athletic trainers help move patients faster through the evaluation and treatment process, decreasing patient wait time. Increasing Patient Satisfaction: Patients like the personal care and attention that athletic trainers provide. Generating Revenue: Athletic training services are reimbursable by many insurance companies, and services are either directly billed or billed incident to physician services. Increasing Physician Productivity and Efficiency: A 1998 Time on Task study showed athletic trainers working as physician extenders increased clinic production by 12 patients per day. Educating Patients: Understanding their path to recovery helps put patients minds at ease. © 2008 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA

© 2009 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA My Company Hired Me Because… “I hired an athletic trainer because I needed someone with the same knowledge as myself in sports medicine, but who also had a comprehensive skill set. “With the size of my patient practice, the health care of my patient encompasses a team approach. Athletic trainers are an essential part of that team. “This team approach is the most efficient method to administer care in any healthcare practice.” - Bernard Griesemer, M.D. Pediatrician Board Certified in Sports Medicine American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Sports Medicine and Fitness

© 2009 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA Making it in a Managed Care Environment Chasing the healthcare dollar has become more and more difficult.

Who makes up the team? – Physician(s) – Certified Athletic Trainers – Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialists – Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants – Registered Dietitians – Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, & Medical Assistants – Front Office

© 2009 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA WHAT I wish I knew before this job: I wish I knew more about the daily operations of a pediatric clinic prior to being hired. If I had this knowledge prior to my hiring, I would have had a smaller learning curve and could have been more efficient. © 2008 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA
© 2009 National Athletic Trainers’ Association (800)TRY-NATA Key Resources to Learn More! First and foremost is - seeking advice from colleagues is a MUST. I utilize the NATA for most professional improvements but have found the NSCA and NASM as great organizations to aid in my personal and professional improvement. Finally, I have a great group of co-workers that also push me to think outside the box.
