What is a Practice Health Assessment?

A practice health assessment takes a look at every aspect of your practice to make sure things are performing as they should. It takes into consideration the business side of things, how your production is doing compared to industry norms, and the state of your team dynamics and future plans. It’s a lot of work handling every one of these aspects, while also doing your normal daily tasks. An objective view from the outside can help you see things you may have looked over.

Business and Accounting

Of course, you need to make sure your practice is making solid revenue. Paying your staff what they deserve is one of the best ways to boost morale, and you want to make sure you have enough money for payroll, equipment, marketing, and other expenses. A full financial overview can be conducted, including all of your expenses and income.

In addition to tax planning and preparation, we use business software to help discover where we can increase efficiency for your practice. We work as your remote CFO to help take care of the financial aspects of your business so you can spend your time helping patients and helping your staff.

Team Dynamics

A good team has to work well together to produce the results you’re looking for at your practice. If there’s drama or people that aren’t accomplishing the tasks they need to be, one or more of the staff may need to be changed. It’s important to make sure you have the right people in the right positions and that there isn’t friction between employees. Confidential team interviews can help identify areas of enhancement to help everyone work better.
