Times are Never Good or Bad, Only Different

Times are never good or bad, only different. Sage advice from a master, spoken many years ago. I am not sure exactly who, or I would give due credit.

And you know what? It’s very Darwinian, especially in private practice today. Only the fit will make it. And come out so much better. I know this as I speak with practitioners all over the USA.

This is a great time to reinvent yourself personally, spiritually, and refine your practice make-up, vision, goals, and especially your systems.

So much is happening so fast right now. Just ask your patients. Ask them what they need. What they want from you to achieve their own objectives. Is it a knowledgeable practitioner of natural healthcare?

By asking this, you find out how good a job you have done educating your patients. Or not.

Do you get many professional referrals for a diverse range of conditions? What about true, integrated care for your patients? Is your therapeutic arsenal expanding? Does your message make it through all the clutter?

Tough times need accurate answers, and clear honest appraisals.

To that end, we need to also know what your needs are. For example, staffing, marketing, and especially technology systems that are constantly being fine-tuned.

Collections systems, therapeutic delivery to patients… This is Future security, healthier patients, and our own future fulfillment.

It’s the antithesis of Future Shock. It will be essential to survival. I can’t say it any stronger.

Out of all this, is emerging an entirely new model of practice, and practice development.

More on that to come. Stay tuned.

I wish you the best along your journeys!

Physician Scope of Practice

Your Scope of Practice

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.

Is that possible? It most definitely is!

Our team over at Perfect Practice Web has put over 30 years of knowledge together to help others learn to achieve the success we have discovered. These are tried and true and time-tested success methods.

We’d love to help you take yourself to the next level, so you always stay within your scope of practice. Come see what we have to offer HERE or give us a call at 339-793-8610. We’d love to chat with you!

Private Practice Marketing Strategy

Private Practice Owner? Know These 3 Keys to Successful Team Management

No private practice owner can succeed without an effective team. Implement these 3 keys to team management and see your private practice thrive.

As a private practice owner, it’s your vision and knowledge that guides your business to success. Without you, your team is just a group of people with skills but without a shared vision.

But without your team, would you be able to be a private practice owner at all? Probably not.

If your private practice is thriving, most likely it’s because you’ve built an excellent team with good rapport and a solid understanding of how to work together to meet shared goals.

On the other hand, if your business is struggling, your team is a good place to look for answers.

Here are three essential components of team management that will cause a significant positive shift in your experience as a private practice owner:

1. Set clear expectations—and live up to them yourself.

You’ll need to implement a clear, simple set of expectations for team behaviors and protocols, and find ways to reinforce these messages on a weekly basis. Of course, you’ll also need to model these policies by following them to the letter yourself!

2. Offer your team reminders of your shared vision and measurable goals.

One way to keep your team in touch with vision and goals as a private practice owner is to hold daily or weekly team conferences. Your team will be able to touch base as a group, you’ll have frequent opportunities to provide feedback on measurable goals, and your team will be reassured and energized by regular communications. You’ll also be able to identify problems earlier and address them privately if needed.

3. Provide personal incentives as well as feedback.

Part of the role of a private practice owner is to know and effectively guide each team member. Understand what makes each of your staff “tick” and how to motivate them personally. Then you can provide frequent personal feedback tailored to that staff member in addition to using what you’ve learned to implement incentives for the group as a whole.

With these three components solidly in place, you’ll find that your staff will begin to come to work without that clock-watching “just a job” attitude. And, due to the likelihood of increased efficiency and customer service that will organically happen, you’ll also see the difference in your profits as a private practice owner.
