Back in the day, a sugary treat was all you needed to make a good first impression on a potential referral source—and thus, bring in enough new patients to fill your schedule. Well, that’s not the case anymore. In today’s competitive healthcare landscape, you need a more strategic approach to marketing your services to physicians and other referrers.

So, save the donuts for a staff appreciation breakfast, and arm yourself with modern referral marketing best practices the next time you reach out to a colleague (or a patient, for that matter).

Join Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC, WebPT President and Co-Founder, and Bruce Watson PT, MS, CEO and Founder of 48 Consulting Group, for our webinar at 10:00 AM PDT (11:00 AM MDT/12:00 PM CDT/1:00 PM EDT) on Wednesday, May 29, 2019.

    Bad Debt Blues: How to Keep Your Clinic Out of the Red

    Many practices are experiencing higher levels of bad debt than they have in the past—partially due to the proliferation of high-deductible health plans that place greater financial responsibility on patients. And when patients don't pay the full amount they are responsible for—and practices fail to collect past-due amounts—the go-to solution often is writing off those totals as bad debt. But financially, that is not an ideal course of action. So, let's talk about how to optimize your …

    Retention, Please: Why Patient Dropout is Killing Rehab Therapy Practices— and How to Stop It

    Patient health is the top priority for most rehab therapists—specifically, getting patients back to a level of health that allows them to do what they love. But, when patients say “sayonara” before they reach their therapy goals, they lose the opportunity to live their fullest lives. To make matters worse, the average rehab therapy practice will lose $150,000 annually due to patient dropout alone. Talk about a one-two punch to the gut. Here at WebPT, we believe …

    The Role of the Front Office in Patient Retention

    In the words of the great William Shakespeare, “All the world's a stage; and all the men and women merely players.” Whether we’re talking about the world’s stage or an actual stage, the success of every great performance hinges on each actor’s ability to fully embrace his or her role. In the case of a rehab therapy ensemble, each role is instrumental to ensuring the success of the entire practice. And when it comes to measuring that …

    Founder Letter: Out of Pocket, Out of Luck: Why Patients Can't Always Pay Cash—And Why PTs Should Care

    In a perfect world, health care wouldn’t need reform; patients would have access to quality, affordable care and providers would be paid well for their services without having to jump through onerous—and numerous—regulatory hoops to minimize the potential for fraud and abuse. But we don’t live in a perfect world, which is why patients and providers—including PTs, OTs, and SLPs—are understandably frustrated with the status quo. To gain a better understanding of the state of rehab therapy …

    3 Marketing Rules for Pediatric Therapists

    Marketing your clinic may not be your favorite part of running a business, but it’s wholly necessary if you want to keep your doors open. After all, you can’t do the thing you love most—help patients—if you don’t have patients coming through your doors. And though we’ve provided a lot of marketing advice on everything from creating a value prop to properly using CTAs , that advice doesn’t always address the subtleties of marketing a specialty—especially when …
