All the Physical Therapists we speak to enter the field out of a desire to treat the whole person, not just the injury. As Aaron LeBauer put's it, each phone call a Physical Therapists receives could be the deciding factor between surgery or a comprehensive healing approach. But owning a Physical Therapy practice requires so more than simply a passion for healing. Like any business owner, the Physical Therapist is often times the lease negotiator, marketing manager, billing department and anything else that demands immediate attention. With so many challenges, how do successful "Medprenuers"ensure they are always implementing proven models to keep their calendar booked solid, and their patients coming back? They seek professional advice, especially when it comes to secure healthcare payment solutions.

What do these influencers say about improving patient collections?
Improving patient collections is a critical area for Physical Therapists and requires a comprehensive approach. From the financial policy you have with your patients to the platform you use for the collection of fees, most Physical Therapists would prefer to avoid this conversation altogether. But, armed with the right tools, collecting the patient payment could lead to significantly improved patient relations. Think about Uber. One of the reasons the experience is positive is because there is no delay once you arrive at your destination. Apply this Uber Model to your private practice and replicate many of the successful practices employed by Physical Therapy leaders Aaron LeBauer of Lebauer Physical Therapy, Joe Simon of Manhattan PT and Darryl Elliot of Elliott Physical Therapy.
