What's up everybody, welcome back to the PT on ICE Daily Show. Before we jump into today's episode, let's chat about Jane, our show sponsor. Jane makes the Daily Show possible and is the practice management software that so many folks here at ICE utilize. The team at Jane knows how important it is for your patients to get the care they need and with this in mind, they've made it really easy and convenient for patients to book online. One tip that has worked well for a lot of practices is to make the booking button on your website prominent so patients can't miss it. Once clicked, they get redirected to a beautifully branded online booking site and from there, the entire booking process only takes around two minutes. After booking an appointment, patients get access to a secure portal where they can conveniently manage their appointments and payment details, add themselves to a waitlist, opt in to text and email reminders and fill out their intake form. If you all are curious to learn more about online booking with Jane, head over to jane.app slash physical therapy, book their one-on-one demo with a member of their team and if you're make sure to use the code ICEPT1MO when you sign up as that gives you a one-month grace period that gets applied to your new account. Thanks everybody. Enjoy today's show.

I know I've been here where when you come out on the other side, you think, man, if I just would have communicated what I wanted or if I just would have set that expectation, maybe things could have been different or you say, man, like if I knew that that's what you wanted, if I knew that that's what you expected of me, maybe things could have been a little bit different. Like I definitely can reflect on a lot of relationships I've had or arguments I've been in and that would have saved a lot of heartache if those expectations were laid out in front, if they were communicated up front. And what I think we should be doing when we are starting a plan of care with our patients is to remember that we are entering a relationship with our patients and ideally they are going to have expectations of us and we are going to have expectations of them. We should level set those expectations and we then can hold each other accountable. When we are introducing a plan of care to quote Jeff Moore from his process lecture, you are coming to a mutually agreed upon plan where you pitch optimal and then you agree on acceptable, ri
