If you’d like to make the most out of our platform, here are our top 5 tips for new therapists on how to get consistent flow of patients using All Places Rehab.

1. Optimize your profile.

Make sure that your profile is as complete as possible. Call out any strengths or past experiences in the areas you would like to concentrate on. Since clients can search by specialty, having these highlighted in your profile is the key to getting seen. As you grow, it’ll also be a way to organically find more clients in your areas of interest or in stretch areas to build new skills. Another way to boost your patient list is by offering telehealth to increase your radius and cast a wider net.

2. Build your professional network.

Engaging with other therapists and healthcare providers through All Places Rehab can lead to valuable collaborations, mentorships, and a supportive professional network. It also can lead to referrals.

3. Encourage reviews.

All Places Rehab allows patients to leave reviews, which can be extremely helpful in increasing credibility and confidence as a provider. Find a routine that works best for you to get into the habit of encouraging reviews, whether it’s an email with a link to leave an APR review after you’ve wrapped up a case or asking at the end of your last session. Asking for feedback shows how much you care about how you were able to help your clients, as well as your dedication to constantly growing.

4. Use those reviews.

Asking is just the first step. As you receive feedback and reviews from clients, you’ll gain insight into areas where you excel and areas that might need improvement. Use these reviews to feed a cycle of continuous learning. Every time you build a new skill, take a course, earn a certification, complete a case in a new area for you, etc., add this to your profile. You’ll want to keep your profile as up-to-date as possible, especially when you’re starting out, to leverage every strength you have.

5. Do some market research.

As an All Places Rehab provider, you can use the platform to gain insight into the local market and needs of potential clients. This knowledge can inform your approach and help you tailor your services to better meet the demands of your community.
