Remember the days when all you needed to grow your small practice was a healthcare provider or two, an office administrator and some comfy waiting room chairs? Well - today's market dictates what you'll need if you want to see operational growth as well as differentiate yourself from competitors. First on the list? A configurable system for your EMR/EHR (electronic medical/health records) that includes features such as patient self-scheduling, interactive reporting, interoperable billing and specialty specific documentation.
A strong digital marketing strategy sets you up for success as it allows you to attract new patients, maintain clinical satisfaction and stay on top of current healthcare trends such as new patient standards or upcoming technologies. In fact, 68% of U.S. healthcare marketers are placing an emphasis on social media marketing as more patients are eager for the convenience of online engagement and accessibility. From regularly maintaining your website or improving your SEO (search engine optimization), following these social media best practices and keeping a fresh perspective will help you gain more exposure as well as effectively grow your small business.

As you may know from part 1 of our #NEDA series, this week has been dedicated to increasing National Eating Disorders Awareness. While we have already discussed its history and purpose, today we want to dive deeper into the affects eating disorders have not only on the body but also on the mind.
Eating disorders have been a prevalent problem in America for decades. In fact, about 20 million women and 10 million men experience eating disorders at some point in their lifetime.
