Since it’s the beginning of the year, now is a good time to review your vendor relationships. Consider going through all of your vendors from A to Z, list out their contract terms and pricing, compare it against the marketplace, and then call each one in and renegotiate (tactfully demand) a better deal or you’ll change to another vendor. Many times vendors will gladly renegotiate with you rather than lose the account. For example, many practices will compare their medical supply costs against online vendors, such as esurg.com.
Also, when doing this, evaluate whether or not you really need the product and/or service in the first place.
