Evaluating where you stand is the only way to move forward to where you want to be. Self evaluation is one of the most difficult areas to approach with a practice but is the first step in diagnosing areas in need of change. Our practice assessments can be performed for phones and internal processes alike. Each point of contact you have with your client should be evaluated before making changes.
Whether it is a large scale evaluation and overhaul, a simple adjustment, or incorporation of new products and technology, Aesthetics 360° can help manage the project for your practice. From regular in house implementation and supervision to remote evaluations, no project is too large or small. Our solutions for your practice’s growth and your individual goals are tailored to your practice.
With constant changes in healthcare reimbursements, practices are looking for ways to increase revenue, improve quality of care and differentiate themselves from competitors. Physicians are adding advanced technologies and medical services to their existing practices. The technology is expensive and the services, while often better for the patients, are not always fully covered by insurance. These on-going changes are making the practice of medicine continuously more difficult for healthcare providers and patients. With these added procedures and variations in reimbursements, educating the patient has become ever more critical in providing quality outcomes and patient compliance.
Your responsibility as a healthcare provider now requires you to expand the progression in how you and your team communicate to patients both pre-and post-operatively. Standard operating systems must be put into place allowing your staff to engage in dialogue with patients from the first point of contact through the life of the patient relationship. It is this specialty that Aesthetics 360 concentrates on with our customers. Our team of seasoned professionals will provide you and you staff the hands-on training needed to grow your practice in the most comfortable and encouraging environment. Our training will provide you the skills in obtaining the necessary medical and lifestyle information to help the physician and patient choose the best next steps in their medical care. It is also this training that will help your practice realize its maximum potential and revenue.
Our process targets the use of what we call the four ‘E’s.’ It is this approach that allows us to teach your team how to enrich the patient experience, increase patient satisfaction and compliance and grow revenue.
- Engage: Create an experience which establishes trust and credibility
- Equip: Provide up to date education materials and increase patient understanding
- Encourage: Encourage dialogue by asking questions, listening to the answers, and identifying clinical and lifestyle needs of each patient.
- Empower: Empower your patients to ask questions and make decisions based on clinical recommendations, understanding of procedures and lifestyle needs.
While observing your practice through assessments and mystery shops is a great start. Making a real change will require you and your staff to adopt new ideas. The key to your success will be the management and communication to staff ongoing after the initial training event. To learn more, contact the team.
In most client’s minds the term “Business Development” is a rather vague descriptor. For Aesthetics 360°, it is a very specific plan for growing your business from the inside out. Only through customized evaluation and benchmarking can you know where and how quickly you can achieve your goals. Your potential can be revealed by our experts who will look inside your business for opportunities to grow rather than defaulting to a one size fits all marketing campaign. A customized plan for every customer’s individual needs.
Dry Eye Management Services
Our consulting team is always looking for paths to elevate the patient experience and set appropriate patient expectations. By bringing methods to practices that enhance the visual healthcare needs of patients, we assist in improved patient outcomes while at the same time increase essential point revenue.
As a rule, ocular surface disease continues to be a major complaint of patients. We believe there are now better ways to address these needs than there were even three years ago. Our dry eye consultants can help you execute dry eye programs that are proactive and effective for all patients. We don’t want you to wait for patient complaints, we want to you to find solutions to symptoms with science, education, and practical education.
That said, we know dry eye and dry eye symptoms are very common in older adults. And through the years, we have seen an overwhelming need to address dry eye symptoms in patients who have undergone vision correction procedures such as LASIK and cataract surgery. Could the missing link be in addressing dry eye in all patients young, middle age or in their senior years?
To make matters worse, many people simply don’t seek any formal or structured treatment plans. Consumer studies conducted by Allergan suggest that dry eyes are even more prevalent than previously believed and supports the former suggestion that most Americans fail to seek professional help for their symptoms.
So, this begs the question-when is the right time to address dry eye disease? Do we wait for complaints or only engage in this disease as we prepare a person for surgery? Or do we proactively discuss, educate, and create an individualized care plan for all patients and manage dry eye disease before it becomes a problem spiraling out of control? Speak to our team today about learning more about the management and implementation of dry eye programs in your practice.

“Business Coaching is a process applied to improve an organizations’ performance and simultaneously promote, accelerate and manage change.”

For others, there could be a feeling of annoyance and even dread. Business coaching can help everyone adapt to change at their own pace without disrupting the delicate balance of respect and the competitive work environment that needs to coexist among the team. It is for these reasons that A360 has integrated Business Coaching into its repertoire of services for its customers.
