As practice owners, we continue to face uncertainty about COVID-19 as a disease, the macoreconomic effects of the quarantines and stimulus packages, and consumer confidence coming out of this crisis. It does seem likely that, as essential health care providers, we will be able to continue serving patients with urgent needs as well as open for more regular business long before there is a vaccine available.
That brings its own uncertainty and questions. As quarantines are lifted, will patients be willing and comfortable to come into our offices? How do we protect ourselves and our patients in a pre-vaccine environment? Will patients have the disposable income and confidence to purchase devices at the same rate and technology levels that they were pre-virus?
Here are several tactics you can implement now to help ensure your practice is ready for business in the post-COVID-19 world.
