In today's healthcare market, physicians are more challenged than ever to increase market share, volumes, patient referrals and profitability. With challenges such as the decline in cash patients and decreasing reimbursement while trying to provide the best possible care for patients, a physician's time is exhausted. While focusing on patient care, it is almost impossible for physicians to market themselves effectively. However, if a practice desires to grow and increase profitability, this is exactly what is needed. In a study published by the Center for Studying Health System Change, it was reported that almost 70 percent of patients chose a specialist because of their primary care physician's referral, followed by almost 20 percent based on a friend or relative's recommendation. Advertising through a variety of mediums (books, magazines, television and radio) accounted for less than 4 percent of referrals into a specialist's office. This study makes it clear that referral relationships are the most valuable asset to a specialty medical practice.
