Challenges for Medical Practices in 2021

Challenges for Medical Practices in 2021

Nearly everyone was challenged with the onset and escalation of COVID-19 in 2020. Even with the vaccine in production, and distribution slowly rolling out, the many issues that accompany COVID-19 will be apparent for years to come. The pandemic has brought about and exposed many challenges that the medical community is still working through. Apart from the various medical issues, business owners have had to grapple with the new business decisions they had to make daily. For 2021, medical practices have a lot of things to contemplate and, if allowed, ADKF can help make these decisions easier.

COVID has had an impact on every practice. Practices with elective procedures as their basis for revenue have seen that impact with patients deciding to forego these procedures or costs skyrocket. Now more than ever, your practice’s cost accounting methods need to be evaluated. With the new year starting, it is crucial for your practice to have a detailed understanding as to the new costs associated with running your business. ADKF can help your practice in putting together a comprehensive analysis of costs that have increased, as well as give you advice on areas to investigate, or aid in making procedures more efficient.

Another new challenge medical practices are encountering is the growing digitization of healthcare. With the COVID pandemic spinning out of control, a lot of consultations and even some procedures have gone digital. While initially, this does not sound like a significant headache, as practices have contemplated this option, they’ve discovered that offering services digitally comes with more hurdles than expected. Practices must ensure new telemedicine software is installed and adopted, internet infrastructure is up to the task of supporting the increased traffic, guard against new potential cyber threats, and ensure their staff is trained in whatever software they choose to implement. All these requirements must be considered as practices continue the transition into digital healthcare. ADKF can help through financial analysis to aid your businesses in deciding where your money is best spent.
