And the winner is… Dr. Bobb!

In the contest to describe a goal and a plan to meet that goal for a medical practice, Dr. Bobb is the winner (and the ONLY contestant!)!  Now, I don’t know exactly how well his plan will work, but I’m loving the idea of the vacuum.   He notes that they will take turns cleaning the bathroom.  Hmmm, we’ll see how that works out!  Visit his blog for more fun!

Here is his plan for his practice:

The Goal:
Cut nearly $5000 a year from the practice’s operating expenses.

The Method:
Terminate the practice’s contract with its janitorial service.

The Timeline:
As soon as current janitorial service contract is up, sooner if it is an “at will” contract.

The Plan:
Purchase an iRobot Roomba to vacuum the office building’s carpeted surfaces and a Scooba to clean the tiled floor areas. Cost: about $370.
Office staff will take turns cleaning the office’s bathrooms.

The Personnel:
Office Manager will purchase the cleaning robots. All office staff (including the doctor) will take part in keeping the office clean.

Dr. Bobb is the recipient of  a $15.00 Amazon gift card from PookieMD.  Don’t spend it all at once, and keep us posted, Dr. Bobb!

Win an Amazon Gift Card: What Are Your Goals for Your Practice in 2009?

As a way to encourage goal setting and planning for medical practices, I am hosting a contest.  I will email a $15 Amazon gift card to the person who sends in the best plan for improving their medical practice in 2009.

Here are the rules:

  1. Under the comments section for this post, list the goal your practice will achieve in the year 2009.
  2. Write out the  step by step plan as to how your practice will reach this goal.
  3. Have a time line accompanying each step.
  4. Assign a person  (don’t use their name, but rather “office manager” or “me”  or “book keeper”) who will be responsible for each action.
  5. All goals/plans must be submitted by January 16, 2009 by 12:00 midnight.
  6. I will pick the best goal/plan/action list, and post it on the blog by January 23rd.
  7. I will email the winning entry a $15 Amazon gift card.

That’s it.  No  bull, just good ideas on how to improve medical practices!  I will post my goals for my company, ExtraMD,  by January 8th.

Here’s to some great ideas!
