I'll help you do it successfully and
For many physicians, remaining in practice or returning to practice is your very best option, the best use of your professional skills and what you really want to do. Further, it goes without saying, career transition can be a scary process in today's economy.
Here is my two pronged approach to
practice change. First you need to get control of your practice - that's
Physician-Centering... see below. Simultaneously, you need to be looking at
business options. How can you change your practice to achieve target
profitability while making your practice more livable, more Physician-Centered?
Offshore may even be an option...
Effective Practice Processes
First, look at your business processes - are they optimal? THEY MUST BE - ask me how.
Specialize/sub-specialize - think in business terms, not clinical terms - it can be as simple as promoting a particular procedure or service.
Change your hours - when is patient demand the highest - lowest. Give yourself some time off.
Share the costs - others have the same challenges. What can you share: people, equipment, office space. Think collaboratively and collectively.
Don't bring in a partner...
Don't give up whatever autonomy you have...
Don't resign yourself to the status quo...
The Physician Centered Practice
It's about organizational development and behaviors
It's about defining and perhaps recreating your practice's corporate culture
It's about developing and assigning responsibilities
It's about understanding what you want from your practice and how to get it
It's about being happy again...
