How To Improve Healthcare Business Operations
About This Resource
This document asks the question: How can healthcare practices improve and streamline their office operations to gain back the time they need to build trust and work with patients?
When compared with large healthcare organizations, small independent healthcare practices are seen in a positive light, according to Medical Economics. When surveyed, more Americans preferred independent practices than large HMOs.
Even though the preference is for smaller practices, many American consumers are worried that the trend is toward “big medicine.” Surveys showed that 25 percent viewed consolidation of small practices as a “threat to their health,” and 60 percent believed purchasing of independent practices was a threat to affordable care.
These large healthcare offices don’t offer what consumers want – but smaller providers do. Small healthcare practices offer significant value in the areas of speed of service, quality of personal care, limited bureaucracy, and working with small teams who are focused on the same goals.
To remain competitive, these smaller healthcare practices must continue to provide value to patients. As a dentist, doctor, or wellness provider in a small healthcare practice, it’s your job to look at how you can improve operations and streamline your business in order to spend your time establishing trust with your patients.
