Doctor, if you have asked yourself ‘Now what do I do?’ even once in the last week, something is incorrect, broken or missing in your game plan.
Your practice is strong, your investments are worth more not less and you lead your team with eager anticipation of the future by example.
If not though, a really critical appraisal of EVERY system in your practice, and probably personal life is long overdue. You should be doing this every six months at a minimum anyways.
Here are some key issues to consider right now.
Have you made your patient care plans simple, understandable by your patients? Or, are they confused, and when it comes time to pay say all too often “Let me think about it.” “I can’t possibly afford THAT right now.” And you watch them drive off in a better car than yours.
Are you asking your patients what they want and going out of your way to provide it?
And your team. Are you reassuring, or frightened? Are you complaining about how much money you either don’t have or lost, or are you supportive, and doing everything you can to ensure them a bright future? Do they absolutely know where they stand on everything about your practice??? Or, are they spooked because you are taking calls from your broker when with patients.
Are you making them feel confident, or scared??? Do they talk about you, and in what vein? Are you working every week to make their jobs easier or more difficult and confusing?
Let’s talk money.
Are you spending money on your continued growth and education, or did you axe that too. Will you be joining us to learn from some of the brightest people in healthcare, EMR, marketing, interdisciplinary care and law right now? Are you fully engaged in continuous self-improvement? Books, CDS, podcasts, teleseminars and webinars?
And what about marketing? Still losing money on print ads, or does YOUR name come up when they Google their health concerns. Is it YOU on the local radio health shows, or your competitors? Is your website up to snuff? Are there ways on YOUR website to capture New Patients on-line? The Same Day? Are you targeting your marketing, or broadcasting dollars into the wind?
While writing “Living and Practicing by Design”, little did we know at the time how quickly much of what we wrote about would be a bullet proof strategy against the ever changing economic and practice landscape.
The good news is, that’s what we do together in our memberships.
And doctor, based upon the events of the last few weeks, you will need to create all of this stuff in your own life.
But ONLY if you LEARN THESE RIGHT NOW. Get Started HERE
