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).

And you probably know that the ability to keep yourself—and your schedule—well-organized is crucial. But for some folks, the constant ebb and flow of cancellations, no-shows, last-minute appointments, and documentation demands is enough to make …

    Common Questions from Our Physical Therapy Patient Retention Webinar

    Strive Labs co-founders Ryan Klepps and Scott Hebert recently joined WebPT president Heidi Jannenga for an insightful webinar about improving patient retention and reducing early patient drop-out.

As a result, we received a slew of great questions that we couldn’t get to live on …

    Think Big, Think Differently: 6 Bits of Inspiration from Ascend 2017

    The overarching theme of Ascend 2017 —the fourth-annual installment of rehab therapy’s premier business summit—was, quite simply, “Think big.” But, based on what we learned from our esteemed group of speakers over the course of two inspiration-filled days in Washington, DC, a more accurate tagline for this year’s conference might have been, “Think differently.” After all, in a field as complex as health care, grand aspirations are not enough. To solve the problems plaguing this industry, we …
