Today, I have two things to share. Great pediatric content.
First, I want to introduce readers to Brandon Betancourt's new ebook, Thrive: Five Strategies to be Fearless, Independent and Original. At $25 for a download, it's an incredibly low-risk opportunity to pick up even one little management or ownership nugget that could change and improve the trajectory of your practice. And extra credit for focusing on remaining independent. Reviews welcomed here. I read it, and approve of it, otherwise I wouldn't recommend it here.
Second, check out this cool "Schedule vs. Revenue" tool that Jan here at PCC cooked up for a client (Excel Version, LibreOffice Version). The practice in question was trying to figure out how making changes to the schedule the accommodate different visit reasons, physician quirks, etc., would affect their bottom line. Jan built a spreadsheet where the doctors could play with different blocking schemes to figure out how their revenue would change. I thought it interesting enough to share. Here's how to use it:
More important than the spreadsheet itself is the concept. I still lecture almost monthly on the clinical and financial benefits of doing more well visits...this is a great tool to show how focusing on preventive care can benefit your office.
