6 Facts to Help Cut Down Overhead When Starting in Private Practice

Daniel Paull MD shares tips for starting your own direct specialty care practice

November 12, 2022

Some quick facts that may help you cut your overhead down starting your direct care practice:

1 You don’t need full time malpractice coverage. Especially when you are starting out, you may be able to get half time, or even quarter time. You won’t be working that much, and this can save a lot of time.

2 Google voice will give you a free phone number to your phone. Same phone, two different phone numbers, one for personal and one for business. You can set different ringtones and then know when you are getting a business call.

3 EMR through HIPAA compliant google drive. Templated word docs for the win. You just need to sign the BAA. Since you don’t need to bill insurance, most EMRS on the market are expensive, bloated, and inferior. $18 per user per month for the mid level plan. You can also store your business docs here.

4 Free adobe sign app. Can put your intake forms on an iPad and then patients can sign them and you can upload them directly to your google drive.

5 Make sure you own your own website hosting and domain name. Otherwise you may find your website held at ransom sometime in the future.
