Concierge Physicians Need Help in Order to Keep their Practice Overhead Down and Stay Focused on Patients

Concierge Physicians Need Help in Order to Keep their Practice Overhead Down and Stay Focused on Patients | Concierge medical practice | Scoop.it

Remember the example of the frog in the pot of water who didn't realize the heat was ever so slowly being turned up?

 

Few concierge physicians appreciate all the moving parts of practice development and practice management, because they are too deeply involved with things other than focusing on their patients ... so we've devised a great little checklist for your convenience.

 

CPR helps concierge physicians by handling the marketing, practice management, consultation, and support services to physicians .

Is the hybrid practice the right choice for me and my patients?

Is the hybrid practice the right choice for me and my patients? | Concierge medical practice | Scoop.it

Typically, proponents of hybrid concierge practices argue that, in a conversion to a hybrid model, about 5 to 10 percent of the practice opts to join the concierge program, giving the physician a small, patient-funded source of revenue. A few companies in the market offer a hybrid option to physicians who wish to have a corporate affiliation with a practice management company.

 

What does that mean in real numbers?

 

If you have 4000 active (a patient interaction in the last two years) charts like most established primary care physicians, the estimate here is that 200-400 patients will opt to pay the concierge fee, which averages about $150 per month. In some cases, if both parents pay the fee, children up to age 25 may participate under their parents’ program at no additional charge. At that rate, one could assume an additional revenue stream of $30,000 to $60,000 per month for between 200-400 patients opting in. Here, let me nudge you and wake you up. You're dreaming...again, and you need to pay attention here.
