Now that the New Year is upon us, your patients are receiving new benefits packages and paperwork from employers. This is the time where people tend to consider changes to current plans, or simply enrolling for the first time. Either way, this is an important time of year for health care.
There have been many changes since the initial rollout of Obamacare. During the past two years under Obamacare some individuals (and businesses) are paying higher rates than in the past. Because of this, many health care businesses may have noticed a fluctuation of patients coming and going within their practice. You have may even noticed an increase of questions, or your regular patients may be changing insurance carriers.
Health care and the providers we choose are personal and important decisions. It’s crucial to provide the best service as well as the latest technology. To ensure that your practice continues to stay on top of trends, gives exceptional customer service, as well as create a comfortable environment for your current and future patients, be sure to stay in constant communication with your clientele as well as informing the neighborhood.
There are some simple things you can do to achieve these goals. Consider elevating your marketing efforts, such as sending newsletters and updating your website with informative information on a regular basis. You may want to also evaluate your software, equipment, lobby/reception area and treatment rooms. Is it time for some updates?
Once you identify your goals for 2015, you need to then budget for it. A lot of time small businesses push certain upgrades and projects to the side do to other priorities. Having limited funds is also a common reason thinking you can’t pursue projects on your wish list.
If this is you and your business, are you aware of the alternative funding options that are available? Make it a point and priority this New Year to educate yourself on this, so you can make all the improvements your business needs.
The New Year is always a great time to educate, re-evaluate and rebuild.
