As a veteran healthcare management consultant with more than 30 years of practical experience, I am frequently engaged to help physicians plan, launch, change, or improve their medical practice operations. Lately the calls have been coming with increasing frequency to help recent graduates and hospitalists establish a new concierge private practice. In other instances, the calls are from frightened primary care and specialist physicians (and one veterinarian) who are unsure about the future of their business under healthcare reform and don’t want to continue down the same path they’ve been on for years. 

Part 4

Focusing on just three milestones and a work plan that is practical and Agile for the first sprint, Doctors rave that they love the ability to compartmentalize when working with us.

Three major accomplishments

In the first round of activity we need to work together to achieve three major milestones:

  1. Clarifying your business vision, model and concept
  2. Creating your business identify
  3. Organizing the business (legal, accounting, etc.)

Don’t worry, you won’t be alone in all this. We’ll have your back and our team will be with you every step of the way.

Five major appointments you must keep

  • Scheduled meetings with the consulting team
  • Meeting with the Graphic Designer
  • Meeting with the Accountant
  • Meeting with the Lawyer
  • Meeting with the Web Specialist

You’ll have a project notebook from which to work, and you’ll receive a login to participate in IBM Blueworks Live which is the decision and process design environment we use at Mercury Advisory Group in which the whole team collaborates to make sure every milestone is met and completed. This project notebook will become your custom-built reference manual with many future uses. It will guide branding efforts, graphics and web developers, and everyone who works internally and externally. In fact, most clients tell us this is far more useful, flexible and Agile then the old fashioned Business Plan Document, because it is dynamic and alive. You’ll see!

“To satisfy the customer is the mission and purpose of every business.” — Management guru Peter Drucker’s
