In this episode, Maureen talks about using phones in group practice. Something seemingly simple, a decision on how you will use phone, is actually a bit more of a complicated decision when you own a group practice. Today, we explore different options for group practices when it comes to phones, and discuss what other practice owners are doing. Enjoy!

As you grow, fine tuning your paperwork, making sure it covers everything that makes your practice run smoothly, is important. Your group is different than others. What one group practice needs may not be what another group practice needs. In today's episode, I discuss some of the paperwork that I use in my group practice. Take a listen!   We discuss various paperwork: New Client Paperwork Packet * Credit Card on File Form Authorization for Teletherapy (online/phone counseling) Authorization for Counseling Outside the Office Release of Information * HIPAA Forms * Consent for Treatment Forms * Demographic Form * Employee Contract Independent Contractor Contract Sample Profit & Loss Spreadsheet Business Plan Form Marketing Log for Therapists Client Appointment Form (*if you are not using an EHR system, this tracks all appointments) Employee Manual Template Insurance Termination Request Fee Schedule Increase Request (Insurance) If you are interested in purchasing these packets from me, you can visit http://thegrouppracticeexchange.com/group-practice-startup/
