Show Summary

As a healthcare leader, you know that preventative medicine is a vital part of keeping your community healthy. But running a preventative medicine practice can be tricky - there are a lot of moving parts and it's easy to get bogged down in the details.

In this blog post, we'll share some tips on how to run a successful preventative medicine practice. From developing a strong team to staying organized, these tips will help you keep your practice running smoothly.


The importance of preventative medicine

Preventative medicine is becoming increasingly important in holistic healing practices. This involves taking steps ahead of time to protect and improve a patient's long-term health, rather than waiting to start treatment until a problem arises. Taking proactive measures such as eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and getting regular checkups can help ward off serious health problems and keep us in good health for longer. Preventative medicine has proven its worth by reducing the odds of developing chronic illnesses, so it is advantageous to explore holistic-based healthy lifestyle modifications that can create lasting positive outcomes.


How to set up a preventative medicine practice

Setting up a preventative medicine practice can be an incredibly rewarding experience. Integrated medicine approaches, such as yoga and meditation, are gaining traction in the medical community as great tools for preventive health care. While there is no one-size-fits-all strategy, certain components should always be included in any beginner's approach to setting up a preventive practice. First, take the time to get to know your prospective patient base and their needs. Get clear on what type of integrated modalities are needed in order to provide the best care for your patients. Once these key components have been established, begin forming partnerships with local practitioners and businesses to ensure that you have a team behind you that can provide services such as acupuncture and massage therapy as part of an overall preventative plan for each patient. With dedication and passion, a successful preventive medicine practice can be yours!


What services to offer in a preventative medicine practice

At a preventative medicine practice, the services offered should prioritize keeping patients healthy, rather than treating them after they fall ill. Energy healing and yoga meditation are incredibly beneficial tools for promoting mental and physical well-being and should be included as a primary offering in any practice. Concierge medicine is also an excellent option for those who seek a more individualized approach to their healthcare. By providing access to specialists right away and allowing for longer visit times, concierge physicians can provide better care at greater convenience. In preventative medicine, these options can help patients stay healthy before any issues arise, setting them up for long-term health success.

How to market a preventative medicine practice

A preventative medicine practice is all about keeping people in good health before a medical issue arises. To successfully market such a business, communication between the practice and potential patients should be at the forefront of your strategy. You'll want to make sure that you clearly communicate the services you offer, why preventative healthcare is important, and how the practice makes it convenient for patients to access. Utilizing social media and other communication channels could be a great start for spreading awareness about your business among local communities. Additionally, connecting with established medical practices in the area can help to bolster referrals for more direct engagement with prospective clients. Overall, communication should be your focus when it comes to marketing a preventative medicine practice.

The benefits of a preventative medicine practice

Taking preventative health practices into consideration can have a huge impact on your health and wellbeing. From eating healthily and exercising regularly, to getting regular health screenings, preventative medicine is all about protecting your health before something bad happens. By forming healthy habits when it comes to health such as understanding nutrition, participating in regular exercise, and taking steps to reduce health risks, you are more likely to enjoy a longer healthier life. With preventative health policies in place, individuals can live their fullest lives by aspiring towards health goals with the help of professionals that can provide sufficient support. Prevention is far better than cure - so why not make sure that you are looking after your health through preventative practices today?


In conclusion, preventative medicine is a very important and beneficial part of healthcare and should be incorporated into any practice. Setting up a preventative medicine practice can be a daunting, but ultimately rewarding task. Be sure to include services such as health screenings, wellness consultations, or nutrition assessments in order to differentiate yourself within the market. There are various marketing strategies that can help get your name out in the community, so take advantage of them! Ultimately, preventative medicine provides not only economic benefits for providers and patient but also plays an essential role in keeping individuals healthy in the long run.

Healthcare Entrepreneurs!

I can help you gain visibility and credibility in the right circles so you can accelerate your mission and profitability!

After overcoming burnout working in surgery, I went back to my roots in neuroscience and public health. I learned the importance of building key human relationships with my team throughout our organization.

While helping healthcare executives and entrepreneurs to get out of the day-to-day operation of their practice, I realized I needed more visibility and more connections to reach my ideal clients.

Once I set out to be highly visible in the right circles, I was able to leverage my network of strategic partners to convert clients 5x higher than any other marketing channel I had tried previously.

Now I help healthcare change-makers to accelerate their impact and increase profitability by gaining visibility and credibility with the right strategic partners.

My clients no longer worry about where their next client is coming from, the need to plan additional budget for ads spending, or losing the ability to connect with others because their social media account is shut down.

If you want to share your social mission with the world and gain pivotal supporters that become loyal clients... then you are in the right place, with the right consultant who is also a recovered clinician.
