Overview

A roadblock for many acupuncture practitioners is knowing how to implement an effective strategy for growing their network. Often as confusing is understanding why it’s important and then how to leverage it to get what we need for business and practice growth. We often forget that networking is about bringing mutual value. Having a solid network (and knowing how to effectively and ethically communicate to that network) allows for many opportunities. This course will provide a framework for these strategies. Common opportunities from effective networking: increased qualified referrals, speaking and media opportunities and enhanced credibility.

Join us and…

  • Understand the power of networking for your practice growth.
  • Learn how to set up a networking strategy, targeted toward your unique goals for your personal and professional growth.
  • Learn how to ethically communicate your value with different audiences within your network, such as other practitioners, patients or the general public.

Overview
In California, legislation was passed in 2016 to require all small businesses with 5 or more employees to offer a retirement plan by June 30th 2022. The mandate is rolled out over a 3 year period starting with employers of 100+ employees to offer a plan as of September 30th, 2020. The state provided plan is called “Calsavers”. While this state plan costs the employer nothing, the funds within the plan bear a cost and the administration of the state plan comes with significant administrative effort.

As acupuncture gains mainstream traction, practitioners are subject to increasing scrutiny regarding HIPAA.

This course will outline the necessary steps for evaluating online platforms and tools for potential use in a practice. Additionally, attendees will learn their role as practitioners in HIPAA-compliant use of various online technologies.

Participants will be able to…

  • Describe HIPAA requirements as they relate to practice websites, email, scheduling, telehealth, social media and digital marketing.
  • Evaluate whether an online technology is suitable for use in their practice, with regard to HIPAA.
  • List the necessary steps to take before using any online technology in their practice, with regard to HIPAA.
