If you are considering bringing on other practitioners and pursing the idea of moving from a solo to a group practice, there are several arenas that will require your exploration. From a business perspective, if you are successfully managing your individual practice, you have many of the skills required to maintain a profitable revenue stream in a group setting. You need to consider the number of therapists in your group environment, office space, schedules,
specialties, telehealth versus in office visits and the design of your business plan to help facilitate meeting your goals. You also need to decide whether independent contractors or employees would be a better fit. In addition, you need to consider the brand you have developed to date. In essence, just as a product on a shelf has a particular image and brand, so too does your practice. Will your group practice be identified as a specialty group or multidisciplinary?
It is important to associate with providers who share your vision, empathy and work ethic.

If you decide to consider the idea of expansion (a very personal decision), congratulations. Associated Billing Center, LLC is here to support you.
