You have likely come here in search of advice on establishing or expanding your private practice. One of the best ways to acquire such skills is to enrol in a course focusing on private practice. To help you decide if our four-part practice module course is right for you, we’ve provided some details below.
What Do You Need to Consider for Any Practice Management Course?
Once medical professionals have completed their education and training, considerations around private practice provides a great topic for discussion. There are many stories around personal difficulties in entering private practice. It is our aim to alleviate some of these fears and some of these extremely stressful periods for both new and established practitioners who are feeling stuck. It is always a challenge to operate a private practice. As a clinician, you have a lot on your plate. I wish it were as easy as just going to school to become a healthcare practitioner and being good to go from there. The system just isn’t designed that way. But, we find that much of our education does not prepare us for the realities of private practice. Having gone to college, earning degrees, and becoming qualified, we frequently find that healthcare practitioners still don’t have the necessary skills to deal with the various aspects of private practice. This is exactly the need that we need to discuss in our practice management course.
We cover the following topics in our practice management course:
- Module #1 – Strategy and Mapping out Your Journey
- Module #2 – Ethical Guidelines for Good Practice
- Module #3 – Ethical Guidelines As Per the Local Health Professional Regulatory Bodies
- Module #4 – Legal Considerations
- Module #5 – People and Human Resource Considerations
As practitioners, we believe it is important to remember that our first focus is on patient care. We believe that one’s free time expands as soon as one starts to build a successful private practice. It’s helpful to establish a routine of doing some of the administrative work necessary to realise your goals for developing a successful private practice. Hence, you should make the most of your free time to advance your practice, rather than wasting it on unimportant activities. As you probably already know, goal setting is labor-intensive and challenging to maintain. One of its primary functions, however, is ensuring that you create and achieve ambitious goals in order to turn your plans into reality. In other words, as we always stress to our fellow healthcare professionals – we put our patients’ health and well-being first and foremost in everything we do. Yet, healthcare practitioners can employ techniques like setting personal objectives, keeping a journal, and deriving things in order to make incremental progress every day rather than, say, once every six months.
This is the beginning – in terms of choosing a practice management course to help you in your private practice. It’s a baby step, but one that will yield great rewards if you choose it.
Is Our Practice Management Course CPD Accredited?
Yes, it is. We offer 5 Ethics Related points in South Africa. Morover, we offer a further 24 Clinical Points and 1 Ethics Points in South Africa with our full course. This means that it’s a total of 24 Clinical Points, and 6 Ethical Points.
We are currently in the process of getting the CPD programme accredited in the UK, and you can be notified of this as soon as it’s ready. Please send us an email to [email protected] if this is of interest to you.
Do You Advocate for a Practice Management Software in your Practice Management Course?
We do. But it’s not mandatory. It’s also not important which practice management software or medical billing software you choose. It is critical that you understand the various aspects that you need to fulfill, and then you choose a software or system that will allow you to do this.
We believe so strongly in this topic that we created an article dedicated solely to medical billing solutions which you can find here, or if you want one more related to practice management software you can find that here.
We recently spoke with Mbali Pearl Tlhapi, a dietician, about this very topic and solicited her opinion on whether or not our understanding of how healthcare practitioners approach practice management and medical billing is correct. Take a few minutes to listen to the brief conversation down here.
What Do Clients Say About Working with Us?
The following was a comment from Ashton Robertson, a Clinical Psychologist in South Africa.
“My name is Ashton Robertson and I’m a clinical psychologist working in private practice. I have been using the Kitrin isoforge product for a number of years and I’d really like to recommend them. Before making use of the isoforge journey I was doing my own administration and this was very compromising in terms of both my professional time and my personal time. With the Kitrin team doing my admin and accounts I can meaningfully use my free time with my family and have complete peace of mind that my business and reputation are in great hands.
A gap in most healthcare professional’s training is a lack of business management. We are taught to be the utmost best in our professional fields, yet no one teaches us anything about tax record keeping, invoicing, running a business, websites, advertising etc- one thing I can say is that my lack of business knowledge is more than made up for with the kitrin team who keep my practice running smoothly in the background.
Kitrin is unique in that it can be tailored to your business needs and your budget. The software is user friendly, and the whole process is professional and transparent. You can look at your business stats for the day/week/month at a glance and know exactly what is occurring on an administrative and accounting level.
As a service team they go above and beyond for their clients. They are extremely innovative in their approach and are constantly working on updating, building and creating new ideas and keeping up with the times. I highly recommend their services.”
Look at this fantastic evaluation by South African Clinical Psychologist Ashton Robertson of our products. It’s in her own words, so it’s even better than the wonderful Google Review we just showed you.
