Your medical team is integral to the success of your practice. Admin teams at the coalface and patient satisfaction really starts with them. Patient engagement should be part of their KPIs and how you define that sets the tone for patient loyalty. An empowered team is one of the key drivers of growth in your clinic, so how can you help them reach their potential – and grow your business at the same time?
As the number of patients and employees increases in your medical practice, so does the amount of time that needs to be spent on medical management. As your practice grows, you also need to invest in more resources on the operational side.
