Differentiate or Die

Healthcare today is in a era of commoditization, and the delivery models are changing rapidly.

I appreciate the resolve of my fellow healthcare professionals, who are pushing back against   commoditization…but resolve by itself is not going to make it happen.

Insurance companies are not going away. Big money will win out.

The good news is that nobody needs every single patient.

There is a reason why Wal-Mart does so well in a commoditization model, and it’s because they offer low prices along with a decent value.

And there are a lot of people out there who want that.

In terms of healthcare and dentistry, a lot of people just want the bare minimum that their insurance will pay.

So you have to be the one to decide where you want to play as a healthcare professional.

You can’t just put a big fish net out and welcome everybody.

You need differentiation.

You have to dig deep and create a message for the people who you want. In other words, you have to be a great marketer.

So which side of the line you are going to play on?

Are you going to be a top dental technician, where only a certain percentage of the population is going to desire what you can offer?

You know who you are, but if you try to cast that net too wide, then you won’t be happy.

You may be fearful that if you don’t cast that wide net, then you won’t be busy, and you will lose out on profits.

But being busy does not equal profitability.

The alternative is you can focus more on being a business owner; where you’re bringing in a large base of people, but you are working on the business rather than in the business.

The majority of healthcare professionals need to decide if they are going to be a great business owner or a technical expert.

There’s only a small percentage of healthcare professionals at the very top, who are really skilled at what they do.

The healthcare industry is all about business today.

So you have to be the one to decide where you stand. Playing both sides is not going to work.

It’s a tough choice to make. But you have to differentiate, and you have to get clear on where you want to be.

Many healthcare professionals are realizing that they must adapt to the changes that occur.

As things move faster and faster into a new era, it’s even more important that you decide – you can’t be on the sidelines watching it all happen.

It’s a difficult choice, but it’s a choice you have to make.

To your freedom,
