Seven Fixes to Seven Challenges: Solutions to Stop Doctors From Leaving Private Practice
Have you ever thought of quitting medicine?
I know many good doctors who do. They shouldn’t be.
They are selling out to hospitals or retiring early or quitting medicine altogether. Doctors are fed up with battling problems that don’t really belong to medicine. Is this what they spent years in medical education for?
Doctors are seeing fewer patients but working longer than ever. They spend more time completing paperwork or typing into their EHRs. Patients exhibit a sense of entitlement and don’t follow through on treatment protocols. Some lie and don’t even pay their dues. Malpractice liability keeps increasing every year. Insurances dictate what doctors deserve to get paid or not and deny at will. Add managing staff and administrative activities of running a medical business to the mix. Doctors are up in arms with what it takes to survive in the medical profession today.
There can be a better way. We’ve helped hundreds of clinicians do well for themselves and their patients for over a decade. Here are seven solutions to challenges that doctors face. You can be independent and thrive on your own terms.
