As physician incomes decline, physicians are looking to cash based services to boost their bottom lines.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - May 18, 2012 -- Physician income has declined since 2010, according to the recent Medscape’s Physician Compensation Survey Report: 2012 Results. Even among the top earning specialties (radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, cardiologists and anesthesiologists) incomes declined, and the bottom earning specialties (pediatrics, family medicine, and internal medicine) saw no gains.
Also, proposed changes in healthcare reform worry physicians, and fifty-two percent of physicians believe that incomes will be further negatively affected under proposed initiatives.
So, to boost their bottom lines, many physicians are adding cash-based services, like botox, to their healthcare businesses. From lasers to hCG, physicians who attend the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com) receive the training they need to add $100,000+ a year in non-insurance based revenue to an existing practice.
To insulate a practice from any looming changes in healthcare compensation, physicians need to incorporate these key fundamentals, as taught at the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium:
• Understanding the latest trends in aesthetic medicine and how to use them to one's advantage;
• How to develop a successful business plan including steps on how to integrated medical aesthetics procedures into a practice or build a patient base;
• How to perform aesthetic patient consultations;
• How to add the most profitable cosmetic injectable procedures, including: Botox ®, Dysport ® and dermal fillers (i.e. Juvederm ®, Restylane ®, and Perlane ®), chemical peels, and physician directed skin care;
• Extensive, physician-lead, hands-on training in Botulinum Toxin Type A (i.e. Botox®), IPL / laser technology, and medical microdermabrasion; and
• How to maximize profits by offering the most profitable aesthetic medicine procedures like physician strength chemical peels, tailored to meet a specific clinic's patient profiles.
