Every Private Practice Owner Needs a Business Plan

Well, if you’re in private practice that of course qualifies as a business and you do need a plan.

Business plans are not meant to be permanent. In fact now it is necessary to redo your plan at least every six months and probably more like 90 days!

But what exactly comprises a powerful business plan? Most people think it would include the essential things such as location, income projections and so on. Of course these are necessary components of any business plan.

Too often private practice owners like all business owners forget this by not outlining the most important things first.

So what are these?

The most important things include clearly identifying your target market.
Who exactly is your ideal patient? Where do they work? What are their hobbies? What is their income range?

Because a private practice that does not focus on this will soon find itself on the short end of profitability and yes most importantly their owners personal happiness and satisfaction.

The private practice of health care is distinctly different from the public one.

You made the choice when you went into private practice. So I know you should see can clearly identify who your ideal patient is the rest is really very easy.

Once this is done you need to make sure that your practice remains attractive to your ideal patients in all its ways shapes and forms.

For example this needs to include not only how your staff appears, but also the office decorum right down to the magazines you have any reception area.

And I will submit to you that these items are much more important than any other single item.

Take a hard look at this. It’s never too late. If you’re not 100% satisfied with direction your practice is heading it’s time to turn around.
