    Dr. Phil Boucher completed medical school and pediatric residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He has been in private practice since 2014. He was first featured on the PNC Podcast in December of 2020. He is known for integrating cutting-edge technologies in medical offices, whether to communicate better with patients, improve productivity, or market the practice.
    In today’s interview, Dr Phil Boucher returns to the podcast to address two updates. First, he describes how he decided to open his own Direct Primary Care Practice in 2022. He explains that it takes more planning and managing than working as an employee in a large group. But there are many benefits, which he describes during our conversation.
    We spend the remaining time discussing his new side business. It grew out of a desire to address 2 problems facing many small medical practices:
    filling schedule openings due to cancellations without using up staff to call patients
    on a waiting list (OpenSpot at findopenspot.com), and helping new practices generate more leads during the early years by automating new
    patient engagement (Practice Leads at getpracticeleads.com). Phil describes the process he went through to develop both tools. And he explains how he was able to generate seed money by joining Founder University and applying to other start-up accelerators.
    To get a glimpse of how Phil’s practice works, check out his practice website at FrontierPediatric.Care.

    Today I present another classic interview from 2020. In this show, Dr. Emily Woolcock describes why she loves being an Independent Medical Examiner.
    Dr. Woolcock is an internationally recognized speaker, best-selling author, mentor, and consultant. She is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners. And she is among the country’s most well-known and respected orthopedic surgeons.
    In 2016 she established the IME Academy where she teaches students to perform defensible, literature-based independent medical examinations (or IMEs). Emily is passionate about helping other physicians break free from the devastating work/life balance issues she experienced early in her career.
    In today’s interview, you will hear why this career option is so attractive to many physicians. As an IME, you can apply your medical knowledge and experience. The income is very good. However, the stress level is low and the risk of finding yourself in a medical liability lawsuit is
    negligible.
