You have worked long and hard to finish your medical training. As you approach your final year, thoughts turn to starting your own practice. However all you discover is that all those long hours at the hospital have taught you how to be an excellent clinician, but not the first thing about the business of medical practice.
You are not alone. The fact is there is very little time devoted to your training on how to run the business of medicine. Most training programs do not provide any courses on practice management.
Even if you spend a fair amount of your time training in General Practices or Specialty Practices, few preceptors will open up their business practices in order to teach you the finer points of running a small business. In fact, business and compliance is becoming very complex. Many medical professionals find the maze of compliance too challenging and decide instead to work in established practices or the hospital environment.
Launching your own medical practice may be the most significant professional decision you make in your life. You need to seriously consider your options and proceed carefully. Any project requires a business plan. You need to construct your practice as deliberately as an architect would design a building.
At NJHTC we help you tailor your business plan and “construct” your medical centre design and business. We make the experience rewarding and fun - the way it should be. Our team is friendly and professional .We not only manage the establishment process but mentor you along the way.
We provide assistance with the following:
Are you a General Practice and considering RACGP Accreditation? Even the mere thought of going through the accreditation process can be daunting and quite stressful. But :-
“ Accreditation has had a positive role in improving quality and safety in general practice. The inclusion of tighter indicators that require verifiable evidence will be a step forward. The Australian Primary Care Collaborative (APCC) Program has an opportunity to build on its previous success in general practice quality improvement to further enhance patient safety in General practice” Retrieved 18 November 2014 .
So if the above statement is true why do general practices shudder the thought of the accreditation experience?
At Nicky Jardine Health Training & Consulting (NJHTC) we guide and manage you through the process and mentor your staff to get the most out of accreditation. Under “Nicky Jardine’s” management two practices have been awarded RACGP Practice of the Year under the recommendation of the accreditation bodies.
We work throughout Australia and most of the accreditation consultation can be done on line or via Tele Practice Management. We have online practice manuals, task management systems for your medical receptionists, practice nurses and doctors and a wealth of knowledge of the RACGP Accreditation Standards. We may also be able to help you acquire a Grant from the government to help with the process, plus register your medical practice with the Practice Incentive Program and the Practice Nurse Incentive Program.
Contact our friendly team today to see how we can help you. We are leaders in the accreditation process and have proven experience to ensure this a positive time for your practice with profitable results. Not only will your practice be compliant but we will teach you how to utilise all your new systems to market your practice effectively.
Accreditation is not daunting for us! We have assisted scores of practices successfully pass accreditation.
Are you setting up a new medical practice or considering changing software or medical IT companies?
“Nicky Jardine (NJHTC)” has worked with medical practices over the past 25 years by either setting up new IT or teaching medical software packages. Not only do we understand the technology but we are medical managers ourselves so understand that one software package does not fit all! Each practice has their own workflow, systems and uses for the software. At NJHTC we not only train you but we also setup the workflows for your practice so you get the most out of the software.
The best part about dealing with our company is that we speak “doctor and practice manager” not “computer” so you will have a complete understanding of what is going on.
NJHTC partners with excellent IT companies throughout Australia to offer you a turnkey solution to all of your IT requirements.
