20/20 Money Episode #221 – Rethinking your hiring process to reduce costs and increase per patient revenue with Ankit Patel

January 30, 2023

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Ankit Patel. Ankit and I chat about how he and his wife have taken delegation and outsourcing in their practice to a whole new level by building part of their team overseas in the Philippines. We talk about their path through practice ownership and how they keep a pulse around their patient satisfaction. We also talk about their interview process and questions they ask, how they manage their team both stateside and overseas, impactful interview questions they ask, and the financial metrics that caused them to start looking for alternative solutions to their team. We then dive deep into the journey he’s been on building and managing a virtual team in the Philippines and the work they’ve started doing for other offices.
