Owners of a Direct Care practice are more likely to experience higher job satisfaction than the insurance-based model and it’s no wonder why. Direct Care is independent of insurance, patients pay the doctor directly for their expertise. The doctor has full autonomy in how they care for patients and how they are paid, rather than someone without a medical degree. We’ve chosen this path for the love of medicine. Come listen in to hear how I managed to pivot my private practice from insurance-based to Direct Care right in the middle of the pandemic. I share all the lessons I learned along the way and if you stick around long enough, you might start to believe you too can have a fulfilling Direct Care Podiatry practice too.

    Today's question:
    “I’m looking to start my practice in an area that is mostly health systems and wanted to know do I start with telemedicine or get rental space first?”
    Start with the end goal, what is it that you want to achieve in 5-10 years? Pencil that in because the decision you make today should move you in that direction. If you want to start lean, telemedicine makes sense and is becoming more acceptable.In both cases, you have to ask yourself where will patients be coming from?  What is your marketing strategy?With rental spaces, consider subleasing from existing doctors or symbiotic situations that minimizes conflict of interest or competition.Going all out comes at a high cost upfront so if you want to do that, that what you need to do to get a ROI rather than leaving your business up to chance.Join the program to discover the roadmap to a Direct Care practice.
