Why is it that so many find private practice so difficult?
By our nature, most healthcare professionals are focused and organized.
If we weren’t, we never would’ve passed all those exams, and made it into private practice in the first place.
So why is it that so many find private practice so difficult?
The reality is, private practice today requires skillsets far beyond those we received in our professional training. Seriously, think about it; marketing, staffing, hiring, and firing. Not to mention expanding your technical and professional skills as time goes on.
Then there’s compliance, the ever-increasing body of rules and regulations.
But there is a way out. And that is to make sure you develop—and follow—a powerful daily professional routine.
For example, we need to have dedicated time to return patient calls, as well as those from referring professionals. Review examinations, treatment plans, proper diagnoses, and coding.
You also need the scheduled time to do things like clean your office, maintain your equipment, etc.
Perhaps most important of all is to make sure there is a continuous stream of new patients and returning former patients to the practice.
Is your job as the private practice owner to make sure that all of these things are implemented, and then followed? You are also the one to feel the full burden if this does not happen as it should.
So why not start today by working on your daily practice routine. Work on keeping it externally powerful—simple, yet effective.
This is why it is so important that you as a private practice owner work daily on identifying, learning, and then mastering your CEO organization and skills.
Remember, this is where we really can help!
