How To Run A Successful Private Practice: Systemization

So, you’ve started your own private practice.

Now what?

Firstly, congratulations!

Starting your own private practice is an impressive accomplishment for anyone to achieve.

However, running your own business certainly takes a lot of work.

Many new private practice owners struggle to manage all the tasks and responsibilities that come with being a business owner.

Perhaps this sounds familiar.

Have you noticed things are a lot more frantic and disorganized than you expected in your private practice?

If so, you might have something in common with Dr. Sapna Doshi, PhD, owner of Mind Body Health in Arlington, VA.

Dr. Doshi poured everything she had into building and growing her business, but this left her feeling burnt out and working so hard in the early years of her clinic that her health suffered.

However, she made a few key pivots and regained her ability to focus on her free time, find a better work life balance, and build her practice all at the same time.

And so can you.

At Symbiosis, a medical coworking space in DC, we can help you accomplish all your professional goals.

In this episode, you’ll find practical tips on how to improve your practice efficiency.

When you own your own clinic, you are.

But you must also focus on a variety of other responsibilities.

In addition to seeing patients, you’re responsible for a wide range of housekeeping duties, such as:

You can think of your private medical practice as a complex piece of machinery.

All the individual components must be in good working order for the machine to do its job efficiently.

Therefore, you can help your private practice run more efficiently by coming up with ways to better manage all of its components.

What Is A Private Practice Systemization?

Private practice systemization is an extremely handy tool in managing your private practice smoothly and efficiently.

Systemization refers to the process of organizing the responsibilities of your private practice into a system.
