At our Gotham Dinner, we had focused on the importance of maintaining a community of like-minded professionals, and the indispensable role it plays in delivering the best possible care to our patients.
One of the many benefits of being a part of the Metro Collaborative community is access to trustworthy peers. There will often be times when the needs of the patient demand referrals to another professional. Having relationships already in place with these professionals, along with an understanding of their values, allows you to be certain your patient will be receiving the highest quality of care.
This confidence is especially crucial in the beginning stages of your practice, or when you are expanding. First impressions are everything, yet it can be hard to make those connections. MC member Tatiana Kaletech emphasized this by explaining the need for knowing which clinicians she should be referring to her clients when she was starting her first coaching program within a hospital setting.
We are always looking for new ways to help our members expand their practice, and are often inspired by their creativity. Francis Ramirez, our Director of Business Development, discussed how some of our members in the DC Metro are changing their intake forms to include questions that will help them uncover appropriate referrals. This method is just one of the many ways that we are working to build our community.
Connecting with passionate, like-minded individuals can seem like a formidable task, but it doesn’t have to be.
