The Biggest Challenges Facing Private Practices Today


Working in a private practice has many advantages compared to working at a hospital. Advantages ranging from greater autonomy, better working hours, more personalized care for patients, and a tightly-knit community. However, running a private practice isn’t so simple.

You need to pay for a medical office lease, and handle large administrative loads. But, there is a way to help alleviate these burdens as a private practice physician. MedCoShare is opening a new location in Texas, where we have medical offices for rent in Houston with services to take on these challenges.

Easing Administrative Burden

Running a private practice comes with an administrative burden that keeps you away from providing the best care possible. An AMA article states that administrative burdens can become so overwhelming that doctors end up selling practices to the hospital system. According to the National Library of Medicine, the average doctor spends about 16.6% of working hours on administrative work. This work only increases for private practice physicians, and the hours spent could be utilized for higher quality care.

With medical coworking, this administrative work becomes much lighter. MedCoShare offers medical office rentals with in-house support from Medical Assistant to billing staff, meaning that members are not responsible for building management. This way members can focus on the more important aspect of healthcare, like providing a top-notch patient experience. You can learn more about MedCoShare provider benefits here. Additionally, you can learn about how you can get started with an affordable fully furnished office space for rent at our newest location in Houston, Texas:

Solving Financial Issues

Not only are building costs and leases expensive, but medical equipment racks up too. Finding a medical office space for lease that comes fully-furnished, with equipment, is hard to come by. An article from ASC news reports that the cost of medical equipment has doubled and in some cases tripled after COVID-19. Higher operational costs and building management cuts into revenue needed to stay afloat. A study from HealthAffairs states that administrative spending accounts for 15-30% of medical spending.

Medical coworking can also assist in easing these financial burdens. From providing lower rent costs to basic medical equipment and offering comprehensive support services like SEO and digital marketing, the medical coworking community is the perfect launching pad to building a sustainable private practice. MedCoShare offers medical office spaces for rent with flexible leases that can help you get started within 30 days: MedCoShare also handles any overhead costs so you are able to put your energy towards helping your clients. 

In conclusion, there are many challenges that private practices face today. Administrative burdens can become overwhelming to the point that doctors sell their practices to the hospital system. Financial burdens act as a huge roadblock for physicians wanting more freedom in their work life. Medical coworking can solve these problems by handling both administrative burdens and easing financial expenses.
