Have you ever considered exactly what your scope of practice is? If you haven’t, you are most likely cutting your own proverbial throat when it comes to your earnings statement.
Wow, that sounds powerful don’t you think? We want it to!
This is a no BS wake-up call for any doctor who is not making the dollars you expect. That said, we will be the first to acknowledge it’s not all about dollars. Money in the long run means nothing if you don’t have happiness and pleasure in what you do.
Yes, dollars are nice, but satisfaction and happiness are critical as well. So, don’t think we are only talking about money here as we address your physician scope of practice.
What Is Your Scope of Practice?
Sometimes it’s easier to state what your scope of practice is not. As a matter of fact, this is one of those instances. In your practice, you should not take out the trash, make appointments, draw blood, work on computers, file, etc. Of course, this list goes on and on.
What you should be doing is seeing and treating patients, period.
You should delegate the rest of the tasks of the office appropriately throughout your staffing makeup. But, then again, you must have the correct staffing model in your office. It’s also critical to make sure everyone works to the top of their license and skill level.
There are hundreds of staffing models out there. Many of them put together by people who know absolutely nothing about running a physician office.
If you want to learn how to do it correctly, you want to turn to someone who has walked in your shoes and knows where you are coming from on all angles.
