Most private practices, regardless of if they are therapy, medical, or dental groups are terrible with implementing healthy business practices. The truth is, none of us learned business in school. Doctors didn’t learn any more than therapists or dentists. Healthcare is complicated and running a business is challenging, but there are ways flourish.

So what do you do? Well, one of the first things you will hear is, get some marketing help. You need SEO this and google ads that. Don’t forget about the funnel over here, and tracking stuff over there. Truth is, marketing support is helpful, but it is not going to MAKE a practice successful. Maybe you just need more stuff? A fancier office, more clients, more staff, add some locations, and of course make more money, and THEN your practice will be successful? Nope. All of those things are great, but they are not going to make your practice thrive.

What makes businesses, including private practices flourish? OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY. Your practice must run well, whether it is small or big, or regardless of your location or specialties. If your practice does not run well, clients pick somewhere else to go, staff pick somewhere else to work, and money that comes in, goes right back out.

Operational inefficiencies are the #1 drainer of time and money for businesses. Private practices are no exception. Lack of adequate systems and processes cost practices THOUSANDS of dollars a year…that they never see leave. How does all that money walk away? Because practices aren’t looking for it. How can you see it when you are trying to do everything by yourself? Many therapists/owners are trying to see clients, hire more staff, while juggling workplace issues, with a stack of missed calls, and an inbox full of unread messages. This is not operational efficiency. The truth is you need specialized support. You need a professional on your team that can focus ENTIRELY on efficiency.
