Clinic Survey time, what’s not to love

Hey, I’m a data junkie. My first professional job was as a financial analyst. I have been gathering and analyzing data for alot of years and I happen to love it.

My clinic opened in 2008 and I think there has been a CA clinic survey every year since then. I really look forward to submitting my clinic’s little piece of the bigger pie.

The most important stat to me is number of treatments. That info is a part of my daily life. I track it by shift, by day, by week, by month and by year. It is really nice that these numbers have consistently grown from day 1.

And what is really nice about the annual survey is that it helps me step back and look at key factors that reflect and support this growth. In 2008 the clinic was 400 sq ft, today it is 1200 sq ft. 4 chairs in 2008, 8 chairs today. In 2008 it was just me, now it’s me and two part-time punks. That was the big change for me on this year’s survey. I got to check the box that says employees. Yay!

I have a goal for next year’s survey. Since 2008 the clinic has been open Monday thru Friday. I want to check the box that says open Saturday. Funny how an annual survey can add conviction to my goals.

Submit your survey and think about what you want your submission next year to reveal about your clinic.

Conference Keynote: Breaking the Ceiling

The theme for this conference is “Breaking Barriers”. You know, there are so many barriers to break in acupuncture that it was really hard to choose which ones to talk about for this speech. But since I’ve spent so much time talking about classism as a barrier, I thought it might be fun to shift gears a little and talk about numbers.

  1. Good advice, about adding conviction to one’s goals! I want to be open on Sundays next year. Let’s make it happen!

  2. If you’ve already filled out the survey, disregard the reminder email that went out today 4/26/13.

    If you haven’t yet filled out the survey it will take you 10 to 15 minutes (or less) and you should go do that RIGHT NOW!

  3. That was still a beautiful email. (And it only took me 6 minutes; one of which was going into the treatment room and double-checking how many chairs we have.)
