[PODCAST] Starting a House Call Practice to Put Patients First Again
After 4 visits to the doctor with nothing but long waits, high deductibles, and no answers, Thompson Aderinkomi knew that no one should deal with the challenges he and his family faced trying to get quality health care for their son.
Using his business acumen and patient perspective, Thompson founded RetraceHealth, a Minnesota-based home health care service that provides primary care to patients in the comfort of their home environments.
How did they do it?
By doing what no other health practice was.
Focusing on how they’re different. Providing a level of care that offered comfort and compassion in a pet’s own environment. Knowing exactly who they are and the type of patients they wanted to attract.
And focusing all of their efforts into that vision.
Learn how Thompson and his team are breaking the mold to give patients the quality time and care they deserve.
What you'll learn in this podcast:
• Why the house call practice model offers more value and better experiences for patients.
• How to channel your own motivation to fuel your house call practice.
• Why a house call practice is all about the impact you can make on your commitment, which will leave you more fulfilled in practice.
