Solo Shrink

Saturday, April 23, 2005

Once upon a time in an age long ago Doc started a blog to facilitate the sharing of information, forms, programs, practices, referrals, etc., among the lone practitioners or very small practices out there who cannot afford the cost of a part time practice, can't find software for a company with less than 10,000 clients, can't make sense out of simple accounting programs because we don't need about 95 percent of their capabilities, don't know when we will be jailed for the slightest lapse in HIPAA security of PHI - Oh, you get the idea. I don't know where it went. I suspect that it is lurking somewhere here on Google Blogs but has been acquired by them since I began it elsewhere.
I reserve the right to modify or remove any post deemed objectionable or illegal. If you have found useful ways of combining Microsoft© Office modules, developed or know of free or inexpensive psychological evaluation algorithms or other procedures for quantifying and databasing the results, developed effective billing practices, made electronic medical records work for you - Again, you get the idea. The mission of this blog should be to more adequately serve our clients while making a living wage for ourselves as entrepreneurs and professionals.
As starter questions; Do you see clients in an office of your own, at your home, in a time share office or session sublet office, or do you make house calls? Which works best for you? What is the simplest and cheapest record keeping and billing software available? How do you determine what your "real" fees are for any given client, rich or not.
Go with it. Let's talk!
