Have you ever thought about starting your own private practice? Is now the time? If so, Scott Harmon can help. Scott is a successful occupational therapist running a brick and mortar practice in Arkansas. With over 10 years experience in private practice, he knows what works and what doesn’t. This guy is very good at keeping his eye on the bottom line and understands which metrics matter.
On today’s show Scott talks about his work history leading up to the opening of his own practice. We also cover:
- How a gradual shift might be the best method to starting a practice for a majority of us
- How important it is to diversify your referral sources
- Why it’s important to have the “heart of the servant” in order to succeed
- Scott’s early private practice pains
- Scott’s Current billing and record system
- The dilemma of billing as an “out of network” provider
- What interested Scott in starting a podcast and developing and e-book & e-course
- An incentive program to lower cancellation rates
- Market Analyses
- What a typical day looks like for Scott
