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.
