So, WHO should be on your team?
Almost, without exception the majority of private practice owners start out fulfilling every role and we get used to doing that, at least until we get too busy and it’s no longer manageable.
If you have a solo practice there are several roles that make sense to fill as you begin to grow.
- Business coach
- Web designer
- Graphic designer
- Virtual assistant
- Paid ads / SEO
- Insurance biller
If you have a group practice, there are some key positions you will want to recruit and hire. Some of these are optional, but become necessary as a group practice gets larger and there are more people to manage.
- Additional clinicians
- Receptionist / intake coordinator (virtual or in-office)
- Practice manager
- Clinical director
- Clinical supervisor
- Blog writer
- Social media manager
Honestly, the only way I was able to leave my practice for three weeks was by utilizing my team.
Candace was the point of contact for any clinical issues. Tiffany handled all phone calls and setting up new clients. Jim took care of the waiting room and checked the mail. Jamie handled my email, submitted insurance claims and ran payroll.
Next step: decide right now who is the next team member you need to add to your business.
