He called his big idea the “Certain Way”.

About 100 years ago, Wallace Wattles warned those aspiring to make better lives for themselves to ignore politicians, naysayers and media. He called his big idea the “Certain Way”. Focusing endlessly only upon your desired outcomes with continuous gratitude being your dominant thought.

Doing everything with the utmost care and attitude of devout service.

I believe he was right. It’s a fact; politically self-serving agendas have been a part of history for centuries. Even back in Ancient Rome and Greece, elders warned about the expansion of self-perpetuating plutocracies. Right now though the constant injection into the media is fear from politicians who we entrust to be leaders.

Rather than reassurance this trash talk about the wealthy is destructive, and controlling.

Too often, the very criticisms our politicians hurl at others, mirror habits that exist in their own lives, a fact too many of their constituents and certainly the paparazzi ignore.

It’s the deeper message though, most recently not so hidden, that in my opinion is the most dangerous to private healthcare, especially for our student doctors.

That message is that being wealthy and ultra successful is somehow bad. That because you did well through your own efforts, your results must now be penalized.

Never has such a more dangerous notion been put forth with unquestioning by the mainstream media.

It’s NOT wealthy successful people that bring the economy to it’s knees.

It’s now many years of bad decisions and top down government and corporate corruption that transcends political parties and international boundaries, fueled by incredible greed. Unfortunately, these basic facts are too often conspicuously absent from the daily media banter.

It’s the wealthy and most successful (not the greedy and corrupt) that pay the bulk of taxes already. It’s the wealthy that are the philanthropists and benefactors in a free society.

For those younger than I, this attitude is nothing new.

The problem is, in our current world, this trash talk about success is today again everywhere. This only serves to perpetuate dangerous myths, especially to our young and inexperienced citizens.

In fact, the greatest minds in history have warned about the dangers of unbridled political banter.

So what can you do?

First of all, have the guts to acknowledge media BS as just that.

Don’t focus and dwell on what’s wrong with the world.

Instead, focus on improving it, one patient visit at a time.

Yes, a lot has changed in practice! It’s changed in your patient’s lives too. And some have been enormous.

So, what have you done lately to help deal with their changes and how they utilize your care, or not?

And what about their own fears and concerns? Are you like a deer in the headlights, or a pillar of community strength?

When is the last time you and your team took actions that can make their days brighter, and their futures even healthier? The possibilities for practice expansion with this one are huge!

But, most importantly, make sure your daily actions and decisions are ultimately putting you in charge of your life. Take full responsibility for your own results.

Work a little harder, maybe a whole lot smarter to develop your own future choices and flexibility.

Always remember, no matter how ineffective prior decisions may have been, or how bad things may have been this is a brand new day.

Completely new opportunities abound.

But only if you decide to be fully engaged.

Tough or not, there is no better time to make your mark than right now.

I would also assert that is this the very best time to refocus, and reorganize. Learn new systems. Invest in your business skills development. Reorganize. Rebuild if you must!

Be sure you are limiting your media exposure. Focus on your new business and personal goals. Plan now to be reaping the rewards, without guilt.

Ready to change the way you look at practice and maybe your entire life?

How Your Staff Answers The Phone

Now of course, this is something I regularly do with enjoyment. I can tell so much about a doc and their practice, based upon how your staff answers the phone.

Timing, attitude, how questions are handled, are they organized? And are all their tools obviously at their fingertips?

In fact, if your not doing great at the moment, ask three friends to anonymously call your office. Two as new patients with no health insurance. You should listen in. You may however be shocked.

When it comes to collections at the counter its “Here’s your options Mrs. Jones, would you like me to put the entire week (month) on the same card?”

Or more like “Oh that’s OK don’t worry about it…”

Here’s my point.

Those who build powerful practices, and indeed personal lives continuously aim to master each area!

No, it’s never perfect, and always require measurement and attention, but none-the-less the process is in place via policies, procedures and trainings.

Clinically, it’s also very important to your patients!

This is also why your staff must be darn good on the phone, so patients know to expect clinical excellence, which is not as common as you would think.

Now in our office, new patients still tell me almost 30 years later, “That was the best exam I have ever had in my entire life!”

Why?

Because on each new patient we still insist on a thorough pre-exam presentation by staff,  yes even interns, while finishing the first visit with the best physical examination they have ever had, hands down.

Private Practice Systems

The most important of all Private Practice Systems is…can you guess?

Answering telephones by script. It is simply a mechanism to ensure two things. One is that patients are not turned off by what is said. The other is to obtain valuable information in terms of what parts of your marketing campaign are working. You have to make sure that whoever is answering the phone is ascertaining exactly how these particular people are finding you.

The second daily marketing task is to make sure that your new and returning patients are now automatically enrolled in stay in touch “sequences”. You certainly can enhance the effectiveness of autopilot marketing by making sure that you’re subdividing these patients, putting them into different groups and categories. This is now much easier with modern software.

Third, you need to make sure that referral & primary care docs and other professionals who share the care of your patients with you are being updated by you on a regular basis. It is important to have this on autopilot. In our office when the doctor finalizes an examination report, the doctor or a staff person prints it. The staff will make sure that we have indeed personally signed the professional copy. If it’s a primary care doc who I haven’t handled before or haven’t had the opportunity to meet, I will put an introductory letter in there as well.

The fourth task to continue to drive referrals to your practice is to make sure you’re always keeping your word. If you told Mrs. Smith that on this particular visit she’s going to begin rehab or have an evaluation for carpal tunnel syndrome, you have to make sure this is indeed happening.

The fifth point is to make sure that you have surrounded yourself with a team of “can do” and not “I can’t.” The worst thing that can happen to you is to have your plan stymied by somebody who is continually coming to you with, “I can’t,” or “I didn’t get to it.” Our tolerance for this behavior is virtually nonexistent.

Do you see how important all this is? Then why doesn’t every practice operate this way? Don’t let this be you. Our team can help.

Decisions we make every day

My wife and daughter recently brought me home a copy of “I Me Mine“, which is as close to an autobiography of George Harrison as you can get. It’s a great read. I have always respected his strong faith, as well as his music.
Some passages really shed light on how he applied ancient philosophies to modern life. In reality, its all about decisions we make every day.

At the start of our “Perfect Practice Platform” training, I spoke at length about the “Gita”, and the pertinence of its philosophy 5000 years after it was written in Sanskrit. George was immersed in the Gita, and its related teachings.

This passage from George will help to remind us all of the daily application of something so basic to our professional lives, but too often forgotten.

“The problems start when you get attached to the problems! That’s when the mind gets involved in too much thinking of whether one is supposed to go here, do this or that: you know-the bullshit…The biggest thing that screws us up in life is the mind, it plays tricks on us and can trip you over”.

So, the lesson here is detachment from outcome. Make your decisions, let go and move forward after each decision, vowing only to make better decisions as you mature. This is so true in healthcare, being called upon to continually make decisions after dealing with one problem after another.

Those docs who never get this have a real hard time moving forward in life and practice especially.

Private Practice Marketing Mistakes
Private Practice is Dead. Or is it?

One would think with all the changes in healthcare nowadays, that private practice is dead. So many doctors are flocking to what they believe is the protection of large networks, our healthcare landscape is changing. What are we losing as this evolution occurs?

With the thriving world of private practice, there are many ill outcomes that begin to govern our society and our healthcare dynamics. For instance, just imagine there are no longer local docs whom you turn to and trust with every member of your family. Just imagine, that all those reasons we become doctors in the first place no longer exist.

What are some of the reasons?

  • Provide great care to our patients
  • Create our own business – a mini culture so to speak
  • Make a good living – thoughts on deservingness

Doctors generally become doctors because we want to care for patients, right. Of course, we do! If you didn’t want to take care of people and make a difference, you never would have made it through medical school. It’s not a walk in the park!

We want to make a difference in the lives of others. Most, if not all of us, believe we can make a difference. For some, that’s a small-town doc who makes house calls. For others, maybe it’s staying late because we know our local mill shuts down at 7 pm. We’re the ones who take care of rusty nail feet, pregnant moms (maybe), strep throat kids and we may even see patients at the local hospital too.

What we aren’t is a conglomerate. We are our own business. We make our own living. However, we choose to do that, we do it our way. But what’s the other way that is overtaking us?

Is Private Practice Really Dead or Can We Change the Landscape?

The healthcare landscape has “forced” many physicians to close shop, for fear of being run out of business. We become corporate robots instead of independent practitioners which is what we set out to be.

So, has the establishment brought us to a halt? Is private practice dead or do you just not know what to do? If the latter is your story and you want to rewrite your story with your own ending, we can help you do that.

So, is private practice dead? Only if you let it be.

At Perfect Practice Web, our team of experts has put it alltogether to help others like us. We did the testing for us all, we suffered thebumps and bruises along the way. We’ve worked with clients around the world and perfected the private practice methodology. Go here to learn more.

Quote-Business Basics
You Can Breathe Life Into Your Private Practice

If you are ready to get down to the basics of business and achieve real success, then we challenge you to read our back to basics series beginning here.

Common Courtesy

Private Practice Basics

It’s time we take private practice back to the basics.

If you’ve been on social media and a lot of places on the web lately, you probably already get the gist of what this article is about. Things have just turned into a free for all, it seems. Anyone and everyone can jump on the internet and multiple social media platforms and claim to be anyone or anything.

Unfortunately, there are many of those individuals who take advantage of readers. This, in turn, can affect how people see legitimate businesses as well.

It’s sad to say it’s necessary to have to reiterate that foundational practices are necessary. Anyone who indicates you can get by without a business foundation is nothing more than a shyster. Don’t listen to them.

There are basic principles necessary to accomplish a solid foundation. Beyond the brick and mortar, the staff, the equipment and supplies, there are a few critical components to accomplishing real success. Now the first thing everyone wants to know is, “what are they?”

What Are the Success Principles of Private Practice?

Bringing a business back to the basics is sometimes difficult. However, if the initial foundation is not laid based on a shared mission and vision, honesty, and principled care, there will not be success. That is, until you get back to the basics.

If you don’t already have a mission statement and a written vision, now is the time. This is a visual reminder of why you and your team do what you do. This is what you accomplish when you can’t do anything else. The fulfillment of a good mission and vision is why your patients will come to you.

Though there are more critical components such as marketing, the web, social media, etc., without the mission and vision, you shouldn’t even open the doors.

So, in our first article on business back to the basics, we highly recommend you develop a mission and vision, if you don’t already have one. If you do have one, review it to make sure it captures your essence correctly.

Come back next week and join us for another edition of business back to the basics. Learn much more and contact us HERE

Dollars and Scope of Practice
Practice Out of Scope Costs Dollars

If you’ve got money to burn, don’t read this. If you don’t and you want to have more, check out how we can help you here. Read more about the impacts of your scope of practice here.

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!

Rich Doctor Syndrome Starts Here

Are You Financially Independent Doctor?

A lot of would-be medical and healthcare students think just becoming a doctor will make them rich. Though the profession will pay you well as compared to other professions, it takes a lot of money to get there also. That’s money most of us must pay back, unless you’re lucky. That cuts into the dollars made for several years.

Aside from that, the costs of running a practice and keeping everything afloat can be quite burdensome as well. All these components can eat into your take home pay and lessen all worries of falling into the “rich doctor” category.

So, what can be done about that?

If you or others you know are struggling to make the types of salaries you should be making, perhaps there is something more you can do. There is one requirement to though. You have to be willing to learn and act.

After all, we work hard, we learned hard and we deserve to enjoy the fruits of our labors.

SO, if you’re ready to do something about it and take your life to the next level. If you are ready to enjoy your life with some of those extra things (boats, vacations, hobbies, etc.), then we want to help you.

It’s not a dream or a fantasy.

Living the life of means you desire is possible! We offer you step by step instructions and all the tools on how to run your practice to maximum efficiency. But, more than that, we help you in learning how to step beyond the norm and make yourself a thriving practice that earns you the living you deserve.

Here’s the best part. You can do this without having to work 90 hours a week!

If you’re ready, let’s just get to it. After you’ve grabbed a copy of  Giant Steps to Success. Give us a call and we’ll be more than happy to help you get going. 339-793-8610

Private Client Coaching

Have you ever thought about having a private client coaching session for a couple of days? If I told you that doing so could change your private practice and your life, would you think about it then?

Okay, that’s when you stop and ponder the idea. If you’re perfectly satisfied with where you are in your practice, in your life, career, and success, then maybe you don’t need to read this. If all those statements don’t apply to you…guess what? Yep, you need to read this.

I’ve been where you are right now. Knowing there was more, I wanted it. I wanted to take care of my patients and do better for them. But, I also became a doctor, so I could have a certain standard of living and provide very well for my family. I wasn’t there yet.

That’s when I began to study the business aspect of things. I sought out mentors, so I could learn what I didn’t know. And boy did I find out how much I didn’t know! That took a lot of time though. Hunting, searching, and seeking out the right people.

You don’t have to go through all of that though. I’ve already suffered the pain of the hunt and search. I’ve done the research and I’ve become my own proven success.

Our Team will help you to do the same with our private client coaching.

Learn how with private client coaching

We are not going to lie to you though. It’s not instantaneous and you will have to do some work to make it happen. It’s more about realignment with where you really want to go and application of the correct business growth acumen.

You can do this! The most important thing is that you are ready, and you have the desire. The rest as they say, “is in the bag.”

Let us show you how. And teach you how. Come share some time on Nantucket Island or in Boston with our team and we will get you on your journey.

The Perfect Medical Practice Is NOT a Dream

Having the perfect medical practice is something we all strive for. Unfortunately, too often, we are overwhelmed and let down by what were our initial expectations and our visions. But why is that?

Why do we settle for less than what we started out after? So many of us dream of owning our own private practice, the equity is ours and we’re our own boss. Well, according to Medscape, in  2016, we hit an all time low of physicians owning equity in their practices. Only 47.1%. Wow, what happened?

Did we forget about ourselves somewhere along the line. Yes, we want to treat patients and help them get better. But, what about us?

No, I’m not being selfish and I’m not trying to tell you to be. I’m being realistic. In order for us to take care of our patients in the best way possible and give them our all for the time we are with them, we must take care of us.

That said, another reason we became doctors was to make a good living. There’s nothing to be ashamed of there. We work hard, study hard and pay a fortune to get the education and experience. Therefore, we should be able to benefit in the long run.

So, back to the perfect medical practice idea. What is it? If you could set a plan in action to accomplish it, would you? Are you ready to take that step and do the best for you, your family and your patients?

Private Practice CEO – Step Up To Success

What does it really mean to be a private practice CEO? Generally, it means different things to different practitioners.  Whichever type of CEO you are or want to be, Perfect Practice Web, LLC can help you achieve those goals.

Speaking of goals, do you have any? Have you set a plan in motion that maps out exactly where you will be in 5 years? 10? How about retirement? What does that look like?

Consequently, something you might want to know, based on research both online and off, most physicians have not planned their practice out that far, much less their life. Specifically, too many of us are missing out on the visions we had of living the good life. Additionally, we get bogged down in the regulations, the programmatic changes, and just trying to keep up and make a decent living.

What if it were possible to step beyond where you are now? If you could be mentored through to the success you’ve longed for, would you accept the challenge?

Consider this, Mahatma Gandhi once said, “You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.” Great food for thought!

If you’re one of the thousands who have said yes, you are ready to take that next step to success as a private practice CEO, then we would like to help you. Furthermore, we have an arsenal of tools designed to help you.

Partner With Your Patient To Win

What does being a partner with your patient have to do with winning? Here’s some food for thought.

Did you know that building a professional practice is not the easiest thing to do? Depending on where you are at in your journey, you’ve probably already figured that out. We’ve discovered the best way to win in professional practice. Whether you are in a partnership or a private office, it doesn’t matter. When you partner with your patient(s), success is the ultimate win. But, what does that really mean?

What does it really mean to partner with your patient?

Honestly, that’s a lot to think about. Obviously, they are seeking your guidance, help, and support. But, what are you doing?

As a professional caregiver, you are likely here for two reasons.

  • Help people
  • Earn a living

Okay, yes, there are other reasons like pay back student loans, mortgage payment, etc. But, all that rolls into the earn a living part.

So, if the common thread between practitioners and patients is “help,” then figuring out how to cultivate that into success for both parties will equal success

Partner With Your Patient For Success

There are a lot of components that go into success for sure. Certainly, planning, goal setting, advertising, marketing, patient experience, etc. must all be considered. The list is long and tumultuous. Especially, if you don’t know how to maneuver the waters.

Here at Perfect Practice Web, we’ve perfected the art of partnering with our patients. Furthermore, we’ve perfected helping other providers to learn this as well.

Consequently, we’ve taken the ultimate challenge and found out what success means to our patients. After all, patients equals success to us. But, what equals success to them?

Bluntly stated, patient success begins with better patient outcomes. You can read a little more about that here, if you would like, but here’s the nuts and bolts of it.

If you want to be successful, you must have good/great patient outcomes!

No, we’re not being redundant or coy. We are just laying out the facts, the way we’ve discovered them.

Now the next question, what can you do about it? How do you best partner with your patient and “help” you both to achieve success. Here a few ideas:

You might be wondering how all this will help you to partner with your patient. We challenge you to take a look at how to get help and being honest with your patients. By going beyond, taking that next step and building partnerships with your patients, you will take your patients, your team, and yourself to the next level.

Customer Service in Private Practice

Practice Success Begins With Better Patient Outcomes

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.

Four Steps to Practice Success

Here we’ll list a few ways to help make this a reality. In our next few posts, we will provide a more in-depth look at four steps to private practice success. Click on the links to read more.

These four approaches to your practice success, along with marketing, will take you further than about anything you can do. It does take insight and foresight to engage and be successful incorporating new ideas and practices. However, it’s not quite so difficult when you have others to talk to and bounce things off of.

Your Own Outcomes Study

When Was The Last Time You Conducted Your Own Outcomes Study?

Last week, I wrote extensively on really taking command of the direction of your practice, and your life as a powerful economic stimulus. In reality, it’s all you have in private practice. There are some really simple ways to do this, but before we talk about that, here’s a reality check-up.

If I told you right now there are doctors like you doing 7 figures, mostly self-pay patients/year, would you believe me?

If not, why?

Likely, it’s a very limited worldview on what you can really accomplish with all the correct systems and tools. And far too often, this is so defeating if it takes place early in ones career.

If I also told you Concierge MDs are collecting 10-15k per patient per year cash, and these same patients gladly pay, and in fact request that type of healthcare, and also pay health insurance premiums, what does that say about how you value, and price your services?

_____________________________________

Well, here is another huge economic management tip.

Regular benchmarking of your results against your goals helps put you at the head of the class.

There is a real easy way to get this done. This tip alone might put another 10K in the income column this month.

The first thing to do is take your list of basic daily, weekly and monthly targets. Higher performing CEOs/CFOs do this daily. Use your white legal pad, but better yet for this one is an Excel spreadsheet (because you can graph it easily and tweak it in all sorts of ways).

My basic daily targets are body weight, miles run or cycled, hours skied, services and income, dollars saved. Yours might be totally different, as it should be. You really can do some incredible things with these numbers, but resist that temptation in the beginning.

Put your goals or targets (BOLD) on one axis, and simply enter your results on another. Save room for notes, photos, and maybe even video clips.

Next, post this somewhere you can see it all the time during the day. Admittedly in the office, maybe it’s in your portfolio, which you pull out during the day, or simply, hidden on your desktop or handheld. Just be sure to look at it at least once daily.

Here’s why this is so powerful. Because it’s a glimpse of right now.

Many people who have trouble setting goals find new life with this method. It keeps you in the moment as well. For us type A’s, it can actually be a better way of dealing with “Futurizing”, which some might say is an unhealthy psychological trait.

But to make sure your not deluding yourself, if you use daily targets, they must be the correct fraction of the weekly/monthly/yearly whole.

Just by doing this daily exercise, some great things start to happen. Many times, I have found breaking so many things in life down into daily pieces really simplifies accomplishment and helps move me forward instead of stalling or going into overwhelm.

Now, you are forcing yourself to look at your goals. In fact, now you have actually set goals!

Next, you are inspecting what you expect, automatically!

And finally, you are really taking advantage of a tremendously powerful principle.

That which can be measured, like your results, can be improved!

And herein lies the most powerful tip of all.

Continuing to improve your results and changing your targets to suit your desires in any endeavor is the ultimate in human accomplishment.

This single hallmark of a powerful life is shaping and molding that which we can control. It is creative energy harnessed. It is fulfillment vs. frustration. Happiness vs. resentment and regret.

When combined with all the other key components of Living and Practicing by Design™, it adds a totally new dimension to who and what you can become.

Taking Command of Your Direction…

There is a real easy way to get this done. This tip alone might put another 10K in the income column this month.

The first thing to do is take your list of basic daily, weekly and monthly targets. Higher performing CEOs/CFOs do this daily. Use your white legal pad, but better yet for this one is an Excel spreadsheet (because you can graph it easily and tweak it in all sorts of ways).

Put your goals or targets (BOLD) on one axis, and simply enter your results on another. Save room for notes, photos, and maybe even video clips.

Next, post this somewhere you can see it all the time during the day. Admittedly in the office, maybe it’s in your portfolio, which you pull out during the day, or simply, hidden on your desktop or handheld. Just be sure to look at it at least once daily.

Here’s why this is so powerful. Because it’s a glimpse of right now.

Many people who have trouble setting goals find new life with this method. It keeps you in the moment as well. For us type A’s, it can actually be a better way of dealing with “Futurizing”, which some might say is an unhealthy psychological trait.

But to make sure your not deluding yourself, if you use daily targets, they must be the correct fraction of the weekly/monthly/yearly whole.

Just by doing this daily exercise, some great things start to happen. Many times, I have found breaking so many things in life down into daily pieces really simplifies accomplishment and helps move me forward instead of stalling or going into overwhelm…
