When you’re running a medical practice, you’re constantly thinking about patients, medical inventory, and insurance claims - but are you paying enough attention to your online reputation?
October is a huge month when it comes to celebrating hard work in the medical community! Last Monday marked the last day of National #PAWeek, and today, 10/19, marks the beginning of National Medical Assistant Recognition Week, which ends Friday, 10/23.
This year, our country has been facing some of the most challenging months in recent history. When stay-at-home orders took effect, many individuals found themselves in a work-from-home situation, many found themselves without a job, and millions of Americans found themselves classified as “essential workers”.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine services are becoming more and more popular among private practices. As with any new service you may implement in your practice, you have to be sure to market it or else you may not see the patient volumes you’re hoping for.
You may have read the title of this post and asked yourself “how are practice management services and patient volumes even related?”

For anyone who is currently, or has ever been an employee at a business, you know the value of being appreciated by the people you work for. Especially in the Medical field, employees at medical practices work day in and day out, late nights, holidays, and more - all to ensure that the public has access to adequate healthcare.
As anyone who works in healthcare knows, you can’t provide the best service to your patients if you don’t have the best staff working in your practice. Often times though, recruiting can be harder than it sounds.
This week, November 10-16th is National Nurse Practitioner Week! How will your private practice be celebrating these valuable members of the healthcare community?
In the digital age, your online reputation is equally as important as your real-life reputation. The same is particularly true for medical practices. Studies have shown that over 60% of people would choose one practice over another solely based on their online presence and reputation.
