As a busy physical therapy practice owner – treating full time and managing a business – you may be searching for solutions to make your day a little easier.
When considering hiring consultants to help you in your business, you should weigh your options before jumping into a partnership with someone. Here are a few things to consider:
They Will Teach You the Business Side of Running a Physical Therapy Practice
Physical therapy business consultants will teach you the side of the business you may struggle in. They can help you manage your financials, track business metrics, market your business and more. You want to look for a physical therapy consultant with a strong business acumen; beyond how many years’ experience they have, they should have a proven track record of successful business management.
Pricing and Risk
Consultants are not cheap. Depending on the consultant, you may pay hourly or project fees without any guarantee of results. Along with the higher price tag comes higher risk… for you. Results are not guaranteed and there can be costly mistakes if you pick the wrong person to help.
Be Willing to Put in the Work Yourself
Consultants don’t do the work for you! Many private practice owners think a business or marketing consultant will do all the hard work for them, but they don’t. They will show you how to do things on your own, and you must be willing to put in the work. Often, hiring physical therapy consultants is much more work than you anticipate.
Consultants May Not be Experts in the Physical Therapy Industry
Consultants may be great at what they do, however, it doesn’t mean they are experts in the physical therapy industry. Business consultants often have clients in a variety of industries, and they may not understand the specificities of your industry needs. Their systems are often generic, and they get paid regardless of whether their systems work or not. If you can find a consultant who has worked with healthcare businesses, has a good reputation and proven success – great!
