If you are a private practice owner, you might be thinking about how you can further automate your private practice operations, and you have probably heard of a tool called Asana.
If you are going to succeed as a health professional in business then you need to lead amazing teams, deliver great patient outcomes and automate your private practice.
But, if every task or decision has to go through you before it gets done, you are a bottleneck – you become bogged down with low-level operations, you are stuck doing admin tasks and simple things slip through the net because you don’t have a system for your admin team and key tasks get missed.
I’m sure you don’t want to be in that position, but if you don’t have the systems or structures in place to automate your private practice, it might end up that way…
You’re probably frustrated that no one ever does the tasks around the clinic as good as you, or worse, no one does it at all…because you end up doing it!
After working with 100’s of private practice clinic owners, we’ve discovered some of the best ways to automate your clinic operations, and we have the tried and tested methods that will help you – and Asana is a key element to this.
To remove yourself as the bottleneck, you need;

The best way to create this simple clinic structure is to have a list of everything that needs to be done so that every team member can play their part to keep the business running.
As health professionals ourselves, and as part of the Clinic Mastery Business Academy, we work exclusively with you to automate private practice and Grow Your Clinic by implementing systems and structures to support you…
In this article, I’m going to share how you automate private practice using Asana, so that you can focus on business growth.
Asana is a great way for your team to track their work and get results, on time, every time.
It’s a project management tool that allows you to automate and delegate tasks to your team so that you can share the workload.
We primarily use Asana for Admin and Reception duties. However, it’s brilliant for team and personal productivity in general.
Heck, don’t just take our word for it, look at the companies that trust Asana to run their business for them!
There are a number of different ways to use Asana and it’s always best to keep it simple.
We’re fans of a simple clinic structure!
Here’s how we have helped set up Asana for clinic owners as part of the Business Academy.
I’d suggest that you trial Asana for your ‘Personal’ or ‘Business’ use before brining this to the team.
You will be able to empathise with their questions and concerns with something new when it comes time to roll it out.
When it does come time to roll it out, and this goes for any change that you implement, remember that the team are always thinking WIIFM.
What’s In It For Me?!
The framework for communicating this was probably best delivered by Simon Sinek when he shared the Golden Circle in his famous Tedx Talk “How Great Leaders Inspire Action“.
Simon said, “Start With Why”.
Effective communication and leaderships demands that you deliver you message in this order, Why, How, What.
So, why is it important to use a platform like Asana from your team’s perspective?
It works great if you open your Asana account as a “Tab” on your internet browser.
You might have a couple of tabs open, like slack and email, so it’s easy to go between the communication channels in your private practice.
I’ve had some people say, it’s another place for them to look, another platform to distract the team.
But, what “Platform” are they using now? A communications book? Emails? Post-it-Notes? Text Messages?
The team are already using a “Platform” to know what they need to do, the beautiful thing about Asana is that you can assign, schedule and automate private practice from the palm of your hand using your smartphone.
You’d have to agree, Asana is pretty cool!
