How To Market Yourself And Your Practice In The Age Of Outcome Based Medicine

What's the #1 reason why anyone books an appointment with you?

People are looking for a solution.

People are looking for people to improve their health. It's no longer just about designations. We have more options than ever before to improve our health and therefore, we as physiotherapists and rehabilitation specialists, have more competition than ever before. People can choose from a laundry list of options including: medical marijuana, personal trainers, yoga, green juice, Dr. Ho, massage, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, etc.

The two most critical points to achieve with every patient are:

  1. Understand why they are seeing you and don't overwhelm them
  2. Make sure it is clear that the patient knows how they are going to get better (i.e. they understand the treatment plan and are in agreement with it)

This is the Age of Outcome-Based Medicine:

"Outcome is clarification of improvement."

Do you provide each of your patients with a clear treatment plan?

Here's the only business formula you need:

As healthcare professionals we do very well at the health of business, but not always as well at the business of health. You see, we take a lot of courses and spend a lot of our time developing our clinical skills, but we don't all spend a lot of time developing our business knowledge. 

Whether you're building your practice in someone else's clinic or you are growing your own clinic, the principles in operations are the same. Everyone can be successful once they learn the principles and apply them in a systematic way.
