Potential ROI on Hiring A Virtual Assistant
The reason you haven’t hired a virtual assistant
Likely the reason you haven’t already hired a virtual assistant is because you think that they are too cost prohibitive. Is that true? Do you believe that? Or do you believe that hiring a virtual assistant means you’d lose time and money training them before the benefit would pay off? Let’s discuss both beliefs.
What do you actually believe?
Vetting VAs on your own can be a crap shoot quite honestly. Do you have time to interview and check references on a virtual assistant before hiring them? Most physicians don’t. You’re too busy with your daily patient load to take time out to interview a relative unknown. And that’s the crux of it, isn’t it? You’re busy and need help, but too busy to subject yourself to the hiring process.
Most of the time, physicians hear about virtual assistant services through word of mouth. Maybe you’ve even had experience with hiring a virtual assistant but it didn’t go well and now you believe that hiring one isn’t for you. Don’t let a bad experience ruin the opportunity to let the right VA change your business life.
Understanding what a virtual assistant can do for you
The right virtual assistant can mean the difference between where you are right now and where you want to be in three months. Stressed, overworked and grumpy? How long do you want to stay in that state of mind? Getting the right help at the right time can not only improve your quality of life at work but at home as well. You’ll have more time and less anxiety to spend with your family.
The right virtual assistant can slide in and take over the controls to relieve a good majority of stress. In fact, many physicians don’t realize how much stress they had until it was alleviated by the right virtual assistant for them.
Let’s talk about ROI
The return you get on investing in a virtual assistant can be tremendous or it can be a disaster. It depends on a couple of factors– specifically, time and money.
One of the drawbacks to hiring anyone is the training time it will take to get them up to speed. If you hire a general virtual assistant who isn’t familiar with the healthcare industry, then it’s going to take you longer. You’ll have to train that person which as you undoubtedly know will take time from your patients. You could have the office staff train your VA but that requires an extraordinary amount of faith in your staff. If you have that kind of staff, then great! But it’s still going to take time away from their duties, including patient care.
It will cost you more money during this training time before it starts to even out. Depending on how quickly your VA catches on will determine how long you have to wait until your ROI arrives in your favor.
What does the right virtual assistant for you look like?
There’s another way for you to improve your odds of hiring a VA that is exactly what you need while cutting the time it takes to train your VA and preserve your patient care standards and get a faster ROI. Go to a virtual assistant managed service.
With a managed service, you completely bypass the learning curve. Virtual assistants in a managed service are already well-versed in the healthcare industry. This means they know the medical jargon as well as how to do medical billing, credentialing, etc., which saves you money and gets you faster down the road to the ROI.
A managed service that specifically offers healthcare virtual assistants is going to be able to insert that person into your current workflow without worrying if they can keep up (they can). A managed VA service can have a positive impact on your business and more importantly, the quality of your life. Reduced stress and anxiety, improved focus and total attentiveness to your patients is the goal and you could have it all right now.
What if we helped you get your life back? What if we can help you like we’ve helped so many other physicians who were struggling with the same thing? What if we could give you the gift of increased production and quality of service for your patients? What would that look like to you? More importantly, what would that FEEL like?
