It is so important to continue to grow, develop, and change the key elements, which make private practice successful. But beyond that there is a whole lot more to today’s private practice.
Of course some of these things never change. And that includes always being an excellent clinician first. Putting your patient’s needs above all others is so essential yet too often ignored.
Here’s one thing that too many long in private practice ignore: your skill sets always need to be kept ahead of the curve.
And the skill sets today of any private practice owner must include an extensive knowledge of both on and off-line marketing and social media especially right now with some long term players having moved to censorship and extremism.
In this world especially with all the changes thrust upon healthcare, it is so important that you continually keep your finger on the pulse of what your patients are thinking, what they are looking for, and how you can best serve them.
Of course all this demands you have excellent systems in place.
If you don’t already have a space in your practice dedicated to consuming the feedback comments and requests from your patients and perspective patients there is no way you can develop a powerful private practice moving forward.
The world right now is just so complex. There is just so much information out there that unless you stand out immediately as attentive and unique the chances of your prospective patients selecting another practice is huge!
If you ignore these key business skills then it won’t be long before you competitors literally run you out of town.
The world is changing extraordinarily fast now – change that used to take 10 years now happen in 90 days. And that’s no joke.
