Many healthcare providers are excited to open their first independent practice but have many questions about how to build a legal foundation for their practice.
Corrine Boudreau of Online Legal Essentials can help you!
On the most recent episode of Practice Management Nuggets podcast, I interviewed Corinne Boudreau of Online Legal Essentials. Corinne has developed guided legal templates for Canadians doing business online.
Corinne has a knack for making things practical and easy to implement. Being a lawyer since 2002 has given her perspective and experience to boil things down to the essentials.
Corinne’s advice is that the essential business documents you need for a new healthcare practice are based on relationships. Relationships are triggers for business documents to help improve communication and set expectations – get it in writing!
Relationships with patients or clients
- Terms of service and payments documents
Relationships with employees, contractors, associates
- Hiring documents
Relationships with other healthcare providers in a group practice
- Fee splitting and payment options
- Cost sharing agreements
Relationships with landlords
- Commercial lease agreements
Relationships with the public
- Privacy policies including on your website
- Copyright notices when you create and distribute your unique content
Your Big (or Small) Online Presence
Should You Incorporate?
In the podcast, Corrine discusses corporate structure options for healthcare practices – including the difference between an incorporated business, partnership, or corporation business entities vs professional corporation when you are a member of regulated health profession.
