If recent times have seen an underlying constant, it’s the somber numbers/reports, and the fact that old rules simply don’t cut it anymore. The same applies to the process of growing your physician practice, regardless of whether you’re building it from scratch or simply trying to expand your business.
In an effort to streamline the process and outline a clear course of action, a survey was done with 2005 respondents spread out across 5 regions of the US. The numbers paint a clear picture: 69% of the respondents postponed healthcare services, while 82% of them came across difficulties with scheduling appointments!
The survey is presented in a neat infographic that outlines the crucial percentages and considerations. It illustrates the point that health care providers now have the chance to adapt and overcome, both as practicing physicians and as business owners. Regardless of whether it’s time to do your own research about your patient pool preferences or learn more about scheduling software, the numbers in the infographic provide you with a good starting point to begin boosting your patient flow.
The opportunity to grow and expand comes in many forms. One of those is updating and customizing your booking procedure – tweak it according to demographic preferences, be that age groups or any other distinguishing factor. Another consideration is staying on top of trends when it comes to patients choosing their health care service provider – keep your eyes on the ball to see where your client base is moving, and try to get there before to welcome them.
The pandemic has switched things around for a lot of industries, but none more so than health care. This makes perfect sense since health care took the brunt of the hit, and shouldered it right through a very confusing two-year period. However, now it’s time to recuperate, to take the lessons we were forced to learn quickly along the way, and apply them to our daily tasks.
