4/15/16: Do You Have a Strategic Plan for Your Office?
In any medical office, there are factors that can influence the success of the organization. The key is identifying those factors – regardless whether they are within your control – and developing a plan that will lead to the achievement of the organization's future goals. This process of identifying the medical office goals and developing the plans to achieve those goals is referred to as strategic planning. Every medical office needs to develop a strategic plan, whether you’re a new start-up or re-evaluating an existing one. There are five areas of focus in the strategic planning process: (1) Perform a S.W.O.T. Assessment; (2) Identify a strategy; (3) Plan your strategy; (4) Implement your strategy; and finally (5) Monitor the results.
