Transition to a Concierge Medicine Practice in 3 Easy Steps
October 7, 2016
As traditional medicine changes, more and more physicians are wondering how to become a concierge doctor. It’s a process Cypress Concierge Medicine has helped dozens of physicians complete. Using our experience, we’ve put together this easy guide on how to transition to a concierge medicine practice.
Step 1: Survey Your Patients
We’ve developed a comprehensive practice survey and evaluation that we give to all of our concierge doctors. The survey measures the level of interest that your patients have in concierge medicine. We use this to ensure that concierge medicine is right for your patients before you make the transition to a concierge medicine practice.
Step 2: Use Cypress Concierge Medicine’s Transition Resources
After we make sure that a concierge medicine practice is right for you, we will help you create personal and professional goals and answer all of your questions about the transition. From the beginning, we’ll give you as much information as possible so you can be prepared.
Our transition assistance and physician partnership includes:
- On-site transition specialists
- Patient education and communication, including letters, town hall meetings and more
- Handling of patient applications and inquiries
- Marketing materials and physician web page
- Full management of the transition to a concierge medicine practice
- Financial support
Step 3: Ongoing Concierge Medicine Practice Support
We don’t leave you in a lurch once the transition is over, either. We’ll provide ongoing support and guidance throughout the entire life of your concierge medicine practice. We help you create a Growth After Conversion Strategy, ongoing new patient marketing assistance, patient satisfaction surveys and more. We also provide financial reporting, legal and regulatory support and billing and collections.
The transition to a concierge medicine practice can be easy if you let us help. Still need convincing? Check out this quote from Dr. Derrell Anglyn about how he became a concierge doctor with Cypress Concierge Medicine:
“One reason that I elected to do the concierge practice is the fact that I actually get to spend a lot of quality time with my patients. Now, I can condense [my old practice] down to a more workable, more manageable day where I can be fresh when I see my patients [and] enjoy practicing medicine. I think it gives me a mechanism to take even better care of my patients.
I got to know the people who run [Cypress Concierge Medicine]. I developed a relationship with them, [and] I felt I could trust them not only to take care of me as a physician but to enable me to better take care of my patients. It was very important to me to be sure that in the process of changing from a traditional practice to a concierge practice that my patients would be well served by whatever company I elected to do that with, and I think Cypress has done that.”
