It’s Time for a Spring Cleaning in Your Practice!

Here are simple reminders of THREE ways MRN Members can clean up shop this season!

CLEAN UP YOUR COSTS: At MedResults, we know that it can be exceptionally time-consuming to review every expense that goes through your practice on a regular basis. However, spring is the perfect season to revisit your greatest expenses and get rid of additional, unnecessary costs to help you save for the end of the year. Get started with an AUDIT on THREE common (and typically MAJOR) expenses:

  1. Your Medical/Surgical Supply Costs: Whether you run a large, multi-location practice or a small medical spa, you can ALWAYS cut the costs of your medical supplies. Send us your usage report from your current distributor and we’ll show you how much you SHOULD be paying on your medical supplies.
  2. Your Medical Malpractice & Professional Liability Insurance: If you’re a medical provider, you likely carry these types of insurance (some states even require it!). To ensure that you’re NOT overpaying on your premiums and that you ARE properly covered for the services you provide, get a no-obligation quote by sending us a copy of your current policy and declaration pages.
  3. Those hidden fees on your merchant processing account: We all know that reading your merchant processing/credit card statement is a bit like looking at your phone bill…there are hundreds of charges and many of them simply don’t make sense! Let us do an audit on your statements to show you which fees you shouldn’t be paying every month. Send us two months of invoices and we’ll do the work to clean up your account immediately.

SUPPORT YOUR STAFF: It’s no secret that a little love goes a long way. This season, show your staff that you want to help them succeed by taking a fresh approach to staff support. Consider setting up employee reviews to find out where your team needs or wants to improve. By gathering their feedback about different aspects of the business, you may learn where you need to refocus your efforts to increase overall productivity. Also, consider establishing new incentives or rewards to keep your staff satisfied (Check out The Medical Business Academy to provide extra education or additional low-cost, employee benefits to supplement their savings outside of the office!). *Starting fresh with new staff? Check out this brief article from MBA about what to look for!

PERFECT YOUR PITCH: One of the key elements of the patient experience is the very first connection a patient makes with your practice…That starts with their initial phone call! Don’t lose new patients before they walk through your door and instead, take a routine ‘temperature check’ to ensure that your front desk employees are asking the right questions and collecting the information you need to get that prospective patient into the office. Consider a quarterly mystery shop of your practice to ensure you’re still sharp! (Again, check out The Medical Business Academy for access to mystery shopping services!

Spring Clean Your Skin

Spring Renewal, Skin Renewal 

Contributed By: Lori Jacobus, Chief Marketing Officer for Stemology Skincare

We spring clean our house. We spring clean our wardrobe. We spring clean our diet. So, why not spring clean our skin? Spring is all about purging the things that no longer serve us and incorporating new products, techniques and habits that help us rejuvenate, renew and refresh. Here are our 10 tips to spring clean your skin this year.

  1. Wash your makeup brushes. While we are assuming you are following our previous advice of washing your makeup brushes once a week to avoid product and bacterial build up, spring is the perfect time for a deep cleaning. If your normal routine includes a quick-dry spray cleaner, take the time now to do a full soap and water wash on your brushes.
  2. Exfoliate your elbows and heels. Tank tops and flip-flops are cute and comfortable summer wardrobe staples. Make sure your elbows and heels are prepared for their reveal by regularly exfoliating them. Follow with a heavy cream moisturizer day and night.
  3. Throw out any expired products. Most people don’t realize that skincare products expire just like food and other perishable items. Review the label on your products for specific expiration times. If you can’t find an expiration date, a good rule of thumb is to toss out any products that have been open for 12 months or longer.
  4. Book a professional treatment. Start springtime out right by having a professional esthetician assess your skin. A good facial will take off the layer of dull dead skin cells, revealing the beautiful new skin beneath. Then ask your esthetician about their recommendations for changing up your at-home products for spring (see below).
  5. Transition your skincare routine. As we all know, seasonality in skincare is equally as important as seasonality in fashion. Just like you are switching out your pants for shorts, switch out your heavy moisturizer for a lighter one.
  6. Stock up on new sunscreen. Purge last year’s sunscreen collection and start anew with the ultimate SPF arsenal. Our sunscreen defense team includes a daily moisturizer with SPF, a water-resistant sunscreen for exercise, a spray on high-SPF sunscreen for days at the beach and a sunscreen lotion for our face and more sensitive areas on our body.
  7. Pamper the skin all over your body. Say hello to spring with a rejuvenating full body massage. Ask your masseuse to work out all the kinks of a winter indoors and walk into this new season renewed from head to toe.
  8. Invest in professional hair removal. When spring arrives that means summer – and bathing suit season – is just around the corner. Now is the time to invest in professional hair removal treatments like laser or electrolysis, which can take a few months to see full results.
  9. Get new sunnies. The number one cause of crow’s feet is squinting. So, with longer days and shorter nights, make sure your eyes are protected. And what a great excuse to invest in a new pair of sunglasses!
  10. Lighten up your makeup. Spring is about being light and natural. Lighten up your foundation. Switch out your darker blushes for more coral and pink tones. And ditch your dark red lips for nudes and naturals.

Are you ready to spring clean your skin?
