What you need to know about starting a DIY Practice Medical Office

Reduce Stress and Achieve Early Profits for Your Medical Practice Startup

Your Startup Strategy Will Impact Profits for Years to Come.

Knowing and overseeing the thousands of details required for a successful medical practice startup is not the only key to success. The key is to achieve the tasks in the proper sequence and to know which tasks are prerequisites for others.

This helps keep your startup on schedule, avoids costly delays, and prevents you from delaying important decisions that impact profits.

The Real Cost of a DIY Practice Startup

It is really easy to become tempted by the idea of saving a few dollars with a do-it-yourself practice startup. It can be done, however, this often costs physicians tens of thousands of dollars in missed revenue over the first few years of their practice. For example:

If you do not get credentialed with the right carriers, it can cause you to miss two additional new patients per day for the first three months, which translates to $300 per day, or up to $6,000 per month of missed revenue.

With the right marketing plan, you might bring in three more patients per day for the first two or three years. Without it, you could cost yourself tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

These examples are the price of relying on a standard practice startup checklist. Even the most comprehensive list can’t convey the timing and order in which certain tasks must occur, nor can it convey the value that comes with the experience of having set up medical practices for physicians in just about every specialty.

Office-Based Surgery Startup

Gain Control Over Your Schedule And Increase Surgery Revenue

The single largest regret our clients have once their office-based surgery (OBS) center is up and running is that they didn’t startup sooner!

For physicians seeking ways to offset declining revenues with services that enhance the patient experience, office-based surgery services are an ideal solution.

With improvements in equipment, technology, and techniques, physicians can now perform complex surgical invasive procedures in their own office-based suite while maintaining the highest standards of patient safety.

As a full-service consulting firm that employs experienced healthcare professionals, we have developed a system for surgical center success that avoids wasted time and missed revenue.

From the scope of services and level of physician involvement to licensure and staffing needs, we reduce the time to build and start-up an efficient, scalable infrastructure to support your immediate and long-term goals.

Whether you are just getting started or interested in taking your existing center to new levels of efficiency, compliance, and profitability, our team can help.

We manage every aspect of setup including the development of surgical service line offerings based on patient demographics. We provide support for navigating state guidelines, protocols and procedures for consent, compliance management, policy manuals, infection and safety controls, and emergency management.

You also receive customized risk management and compliance manuals, employee manuals, staff training, marketing recommendations, and guidance, as well as the option for ongoing management services to promote continued growth.
