In the second video of a three-part series, PT and entrepreneurial consultant Jamey Schrier explains why looking into your clinic’s past is the key to driving future success. Want to know more? Watch the video or read Jamey’s description below:

What’s the best way to determine how successful you’ll be in the future? Look at your past! Your clinic’s history—especially with respect to business metrics—often are a great indicator of how well you’ll perform moving forward. That is, unless you modify and improve your systems.

As a clinic owner and businessperson, I used to just hope and pray things would change—and not surprisingly, they didn’t. Then I figured out how to use my metrics to test what works and what doesn’t. In this short video, I’ll explain how to use past metrics to architect a predictable and profitable future—systematically. After all, it’s a lot easier to be successful when you have an established set of steps for collecting, tracking, and using your data to create a profitable plan.


About the Author

Jamey Schrier, PT, DPT, provides business coaching services to private practice owners. Jamey has been a PT business owner himself since 1998, so he has plenty of experience in dealing with the challenges that every owner faces: generating more new patients, overseeing financials, managing staff, and handling the stress of juggling many different roles.

Before automating his practice using systems and grade-A staff, Jamey was working 60-plus hours a week, missing his kids’ events, and worrying about pulling in enough money to make ends meet. The stress kept building, which caused his confidence to plummet. Nowadays, Jamey uses his 13-plus years of PT experience and vast business knowledge to provide one-of-kind courses that show practitioners how to double patient volume and increase take-home pay by 50%—all in less than six months.
