Managing your practice building time is your primary responsibility. The fact of the matter is that the sheer volume of what we need to accomplish on a day-to-day basis has grown by leaps and bounds.
Do not expect this to get any simpler. The fact of the matter is that even if you take little or no insurance, EMR and continuously expanding regulations require you know how to manage numerous tasks as well as a large volume of material.
There is however, one simple thing you can do almost immediately that will increase your productivity dramatically.
And that simple task for all private practitioners is to “get it out of your head and get it on paper!”
I am still a huge fan of legal pads and white boards.
Now eventually, I will take this material from paper and have it converted into electronic format, which resides in my iPad and iPhone. There, I can continue to expand upon and continue developing them, email to my staff, etc.
But the real secret to successful practice building time is to work only from dedicated lists. You should also insist upon the same behavior from your staff.
Do not tolerate verbal requests for things such as times off, work related issues, and most especially patient issues.
You must get your staff in the habit of not disturbing you with simple tasks but rather making your life easier by compiling, editing, and then delivering final lists to a dedicated area on your desk.
I guarantee you as a private practitioner not only will you sleep better, but also the size of your practice and as a result the profitability of your practice will increase almost overnight.
Now all you need to do is to make sure this happens!
As a private practitioner consider your practice building time your primary responsibility.
I wish you the best along your journeys!
