Acquiring new patients is the lifeblood of any clinic. As a matter of fact, it’s essential to the survival of your physical therapy practice. As a physical therapist in private practice, you already understand the importance of networking, and consistent engagement with referral sources to maintain a steady stream of referrals. But what you might not know is you can generate generate more referrals by offering differentiated treatment services from other practices in your surrounding area.
For example, physical therapy clinics who provide comprehensive balance and vestibular therapy open up a wealth of referral opportunities from the following specialties:
- Family Physician
- Dentists & Oral Surgeons
By diversifying your referral sources you increase the stability of your practice and prevent your business from being over reliant on a single referral source. Expanding the services your clinic offers creates an opportunity for you to further differentiate your practice from the other practices in your area. Ultimately, this allows you to bill for more ICD-10’s and add a level of collections security to your private practice that you wouldn’t have otherwise had.
