Getting time studies is not easy, especially as the number of physicians increases. Here are a few basic ways to encourage physicians to return time studies.

- Payment conditional. Perhaps you can withhold checks from physicians for failing to complete time studies.
- Make it easy. Do you do it manually or electronically? We have methods to help your physicians complete time studies electronically.
- Be active. Let your physicians know that completing time studies is a critical part of the job.
