As a business owner, you may often find yourself asking yourself how you can increase revenue for your practice.
The obvious is increasing the number of patients you help with automatically increases your revenue, but it can be challenging to gain new clientele without implementing new acquisition methods.
Here are four ways to increase your revenue while also building and maintaining your clientele:
Improve and Maintain Services
Quality patient care is the primary objective of any medical practice. Patients are seeking assistance with pain, and discomfort, and restoring their health. Ensuring that your practice delivers the best care possible is a great way to have a good standing reputation and loyal patients. Loyal patients are often found spreading the word of good service to their friends, family, and colleagues. Which helps you gain trust via word of mouth and in the long run increases your revenue. This is the perfect time to sit down and think about how you could improve your services whether it is reducing wait times or creating a welcoming environment.
2. Focus on Patient Satisfaction
Healthcare today is patient-centered, and patient satisfaction plays a big role in the success of a practice. It is highly encouraged to implement a patient satisfaction strategy. These strategies would include easing payment collections, improving the collection of important documents, and focusing on building relationships with the patient. This should be implemented across all departments from the front desk to care teams. This type of care allows patients to feel validated and puts them at the center of the patient’s journey.
When it comes to implementing your patient satisfaction strategy, here are a few focus areas to look out for:
● Appointment scheduling
● Lab results follow-up
● Communication methods
3. HIPAA Compliance Focus
Cybercrimes continue to be on the rise and some patients may not feel comfortable with the level of information they are asked to disclose. Be sure to guarantee the safety and privacy of a patient’s personal information. Explain the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to your patients and how it protects their personal information. Be sure to include examples of what HPAA protects and how you incorporate it into your practice processes. By doing this you are showing transparency and offering your patients peace of mind.
4. Offer Telehealth Services
Today, everyone is on their cellphones or their laptops for almost everything. This provides virtual opportunities. Consider offering telehealth services. Allowing your patients to focus on their health while doing it in the comfort of their homes can increase patient opportunities, satisfaction, and revenue.
