You might think it’s a no-brainer that improved patient outcomes leads to practice success. On the other hand, we don’t all think alike and sometimes things get overlooked. Today, I’d like you to consider how critical your patient outcomes are for practice success to occur.
We’ve written quite a few articles on how to build and sustain a successful private practice. It would be difficult to say one piece is any more important than the other, but it’s a guarantee that patients are the life blood. Without them, we have no practice and without new patients we have no growth and success.
Here’s one avenue through which better patient outcomes can lead to practice growth:
- Happy patient equals talking/sharing patient
- Patient talks equals referrals equals more patients
- More patients equal growing practice
- Growth equals practice success and financial Success
Yes, the finances are important, after all, we have bills to pay, but that’s not the only type of success that’s important. As healthcare stewards and those bound to the oath of caring, our patients are important to us. So, what can we do to assure better patient outcomes?
Before we go further, let us assure you we’re not saying this is easy. Most of us have had those challenging patients that don’t or won’t follow a treatment regimen. However, by creating an environment where patients feel empowered and strengthened by their involvement and their choices, you can increase the likelihood of better patient outcomes.
