Thinking of opening a private practice? In a time when hospitals are trying to absorb privately-owned medical businesses and franchises, it’s more important than ever to open one. Medical clinics are convenient for patients, are usually conveniently located, and place a large importance on human interaction and care.
If you’re wondering about taking the step, however, you need to be prepared. Running a successful practice takes a lot of work, but it’s worth it. The first step is to open it successfully. You need to have a strong foundation in order to obtain long-lasting success.
That’s why we put together this guide: to help you get on the right foot as you open your practice. By following these four steps, you’ll be equipped to open and run a successful clinic:
1. Reliable Vendors and Equipment
When ordering equipment and supplies for your practice, you need to pick the right vendor. If your equipment is too old, out of your budget, or doesn’t function well, it’ll be hard to deliver quality care to your patients.
We have a list of all approved manufacturers and distributors in the area, so you’ll know who to trust. We also give you access to accounting and medical record software programs, so you’ll be able to accurately keep track of everything.
2. The Right Team
Find the employees that you’d be proud to have as the face of your practice. The team you have could make or break the patient experience, so you’ll need to do some serious digging when it comes time to hire.
Many hospitals and medical practices look for candidates with experience, but that’s not the only thing to search for. Hire people who will treat our patients with the utmost respect and care.
3. Strong Training
Not only do your employees need to be friendly and qualified, but they need to be trained properly. And that’s where you come in. Make sure that your team is comfortable and ready to go by the time you open.
To ensure that you can implement effective clinic management practices, you’ll need orientation on operating procedures, on-site training, and clear communication.
4. Start-Up Assistance
We don’t expect you to do this alone. In fact, we’re more than happy to help. We’ll assist you with everything listed above in addition to the set-up and layout of your location, potential lease agreements, and every other aspect that goes into opening a new practice.
KASPAR Practice Management can help you go from the ground up (literally) as you open your clinic. Whether you have questions about the space, location, billing, employees, equipment, or software, we’re here to answer.
