How To Make A Profit In Your Healthcare Business
Healthcare providers learn their skills at medical school, but don’t learn how to make their business profitable. One of the best ways you can serve your customers better is by having a more profitable business.
However, healthcare practitioners face unique pitfalls and business challenges. Many health professions naturally lend themselves to self-employment but often don’t receive training on entrepreneurship and how to start a healthcare business and especially the financial side having a profitable business. This can very quickly lead to feelings of stress and overwhelm which can cause otherwise skilled healthcare providers to leave their profession.
Many healthcare providers find that their job is physically demanding and, if their health requires them to work less for a period of time, they worry that they don’t have the financial resiliency to fund a reduced work schedule.
Independent healthcare practices often have small numbers of clinic staff who are expected to fulfill many roles. Clinic managers are often tasked with bookkeeping even when they haven’t received training to help them with that.
Consequently, many healthcare providers and business owners don’t have simple systems to manage the finances of their business and are making business decisions on wishes.
Tammy Hyska’s personal experiences as the financial manager of her husbands’ chiropractic business and as an accountant to healthcare businesses in Alberta helps her to break things down for non-accounting people to understand without feeling overwhelmed.
On the most recent episode of Practice Management Nuggets podcast, I interviewed Tammy Hyska. Tammy shares practical tips for all practice owners, healthcare providers, and clinic managers who have an active role in managing the billing and the finances in the healthcare practice.
Tammy understands the common problems that healthcare providers experience when they manage their own business. She knows that people don’t train to be healthcare providers to have an excuse to do bookkeeping.
Instead, Tammy provides 5 practical tips to have a healthy business without becoming an accountant.
- Have a separate business bank account and a separate personal bank account
- Have a spending plan
- Read Profit First by Mike Michalowicz
- Use an accounting software
- Avoid debt
