Expert Advise: How To Chose The Right Location For Your Practice

We've all heard the saying, location, location, location. The 3-rules of real-estate. But how can we be certain if the location we are choosing for a new medical practice is the best one? Susanne Madden, practice management consultant, provides practical…

My Grandfather shared with me once that back in the day (in the 1950s), he and his buddies would drive around town until the empty light on the car’s dashboard lit up. Once the light was on, they’d reset the car’s odometer and drive until the car would…

The collateral damage of high deductible plans is often overlooked. HDP disrupt continuity of care as well as put an extra financial burden on doctors that now have to collect from patients.

I think ELAP should expand. Why stop at healthcare? I think they should branch into luxury vehicles.

I  buy a Mercedes, then ask ELAP to do a cost analysis, have them add a "reasonable" margin and then go back and say, no way with parts and labor this car cost $85,000. My analysis shows its worth $35,000. Here's a check for 30K. 

Seriously though... this is conflicting: 

Hospitals charging crazy, unreasonable amounts is bad. We need transparency, no doubt.

A third party deciding what the hospital or doctor "deserves" to get paid, also bad. In what other business does a third party decide what one "deserves" to get paid after services were rendered?

When hospitals send invoices with charges that seem to bear no relationship to their costs, the Pennsylvania firm tells its clients (generally medium-sized employers) just say no.

Have you noticed that everybody knows how to deliver exceptional customer service, except those that actually do? We’re all customer service connoisseurs. We all can recognize excellent service. And we are even better at pointing out bad service. But when…

It's no secret docs are not motivated these days. They love medicine, but hate all the hoops they have to jump through to practice it. Definitely a challenge for administrators: 3

I've learned over the years that marketing or promoting your medical practice has way more to do with looking for ways to be remarkable than about ads, direct-mail or any other tool.

Healthcare and profits are two words that make people uncomfortable when used in the same sentence. Strike that! It is uncomfortable only when you use it in the context of physicians.

For example, health insurance companies and profits, no problem. EMRs and profits, no issue. Pharma and profits, let's talk about it som' more.  Physicians are profiting... oooh. You see? That doesn't sound good. 

Why?

I walk and run this trail all the time. It is a great place. I recommend it. Whether you are walking the dog, doing a little hiking adventure with the kids, or a trail run.
