How to Analyze a Practice’s Position in the Marketplace

Over the past 10 years the number of competitors in the hearing health care field has increased exponentially. Some of these clinics are newly established audiology or hearing aid dispensing practices, others are big box stores, government clinics, manufacturer’s competitive clinics, manufacturer owned buying group clinics, insurance companies, internet companies, and, now over the counter hearing devices. Competition, in general, is healthy as it keeps product and service costs down and promotes clinical competence within the marketplace. Competition is also a formidable adversary to business success as it reduces the number of individuals seeking products and services to individual practices. At first glance, this new competition may seem to be an unsurmountable challenge, but this presentation offers methods of market analysis that puts the competition the proper perspective. Once the practice is analyzed according to available competitive intelligence, a strategy can be developed to ensure that each patient has a unique and better than expected experience from their first call to the their last follow up visit.
