Top 10 Emerging Trends in Physical Therapy Business For 2019

Top 10 Emerging Trends in Physical Therapy Business (and how to take advantage of them)

I foresee some remarkable opportunities and trends for physical therapy business owners in the rest of 2019 and 2020. Here we go:

Top 10 PT Private

     #1. Security 

     Private practices that demonstrate their commitment to patient privacy and security of electronic medical records will gain a competitive advantage.

     #2. Collaboration 

    Practices that collaborate with local businesses and physicians to create a win-win referral network will see more patients.

     #3. Communication

     Practices that communicate with patients using multi-mode mechanisms like email, sms, voice and regular mail will gain more loyalty.

     #4. Patient Portal Technology 

     Practices that send information to and receive information from patients in a secure, HIPAA compliant manner will see increased patient engagement.

     #5. Financial planning 

     Practices that have a 12 month financial projections, with a plan on how to get there, will get there.

     #6. Diversification 

     Practices that offer multiple services, with physical therapy newsletters being the ‘bridge’ connecting them, will survive payer delays / cutbacks.

     #7. Specialization 

     Practices that become ‘the best’ at one / two / maybe three things will gain an iconic status in the local community.

     #8. Accountability 

     Practices that become accountable to other practices / consultants / business coaches will always keep improving.

     #9. Culture 

     Practices in which every single employee comes to work because they are proud, happy, and believe in your clinical and business philosophies will be unbeatable.

     #10. Elegance 

     Practices that pay attention to the small details, that respect the patient, offer empathy, and are committed to service in every way possible will be game-changers in the profession.

If you want to learn more about how to take advantage of each of these trends, I go into a lot more detail during the upcoming Private Practice Summit 2019 event in Las Vegas, NV on October 18, 19 and 20.
