How to Start a New Practice & Migrate Your Existing Patients

Your 5-step Startup Timeline

Starting a new practice after leaving a larger one

Join Chip and Susanne Madden to learn how independent pediatricians can leave an old practice and start anew. The pediatric consulting experts will answer burning questions like, "How do I migrate patients?" and "Can I take staff with me?"

We'll be covering:

  • How to evaluate a partnership or employment agreement and separate on good terms
  • Setting up with an existing patient base and managing patient record transfers and non-competes
  • Planning for revenue when contracting and credentialing starts from scratch
  • Developing a communications plan to address staff, patients, and the greater community
Striking out on your own isn't easy, and it can be intimidating to end professional relationships. But with the right communication and planning, a split can be a positive experience.
