There’s a new era here for physicians – you can keep grinding away in the trenches, seeing 40 to 60 patients a day, receiving numerous denials and audits and requests for repayments, or practice some bold medicine, and do what I have done which is write books, become a #1 bestselling author (12 times!), speak all over the world, start and build a massive product development and manufacturing company, and take products through the FDA, all while building a huge online presence.
First, the ability of patients to evaluate physicians online is a reality that all doctors must face. Physicians Online is a physician-driven program making samples and information material available to physicians on a demand basis, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
Physicians Online is available to doctors only — who use it to exchange information and discuss clinical issues via the Internet. In addition, Physicians Online is a sales agent for automated kiosks that doctors can either buy or lease. For example Methodist Healthcare Physicians Online is an information and communications portal for active and provisional physicians within Methodist Healthcare System.
“Allowing patients to pay medical bills online is still a relatively new concept in health care and there hasn’t been a widespread use of the type of service Physicians Online is offering”
This was said by Ron Sterling, President of Sterling Solutions Ltd. Frustratingly, much of what appears about physicians online is out of our control – so why subject yourself to these insults or problems? You can see why I’ve done what I’ve done moving into the online success space.
My plan for physicians
1. Start an email list outside of the EMR system in your office (HIPAA requires).
2. Write a small book that shows you to be the authority in a specific field or area.
3. Post the book on Amazon Kindle.
4. Use your email list to secure the reviews for your book.
5. Use your book to secure speaking gigs.
6. Use your speaking gigs and book to secure product development deals.
7. And more…
If this sounds too good to be true then check me out online. Check out my videos from Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Japan, Australia, Canada, etc. I have spoken in over 50 countries and I have several more planned this year. I make more at an eight hour speaking event than most doctors make in a month.
I have had TWELVE #1 books online and this year my company will be producing and manufacturing over 200 products for various companies.
If you want to learn about this check out my free book on Amazon for physician’s marketing – look under Dan Purser MD.
And good luck!!!
