Having faced the very real threat of bankruptcy twice in his career, Dr. Jay Greenstein developed a set of tools and practices to help him work his way out of any difficult situation and into a better one. SWAGR helps him to know he can always get to the other side of any challenge that comes up.
The acronym grew out of two experiences in particular. In 2003, he had doubled the size of his office and expanded into second and third offices. Things were going great, even though he had no infrastructure built into the day to day activities of the practice. Not long after expansion, he decided to make his first acquisition and soon saw the necessity of policies and procedures!
The acquisition made him money initially but when patients continued to come in but the money didn’t, he was facing the possibility of declaring bankruptcy. But rather than fold, he looked at his situation and evaluated how he got there in the first place – and then what he could do to get out.
While listening to Jack by Jack Welch, Dr. Jay learned about six sigma and the need for a concrete process based on 3 to 5 variables. Those variables provide a given result and remove as much room for error as possible. Dr. Jay understood that to apply to his practice: he needed a procedure based on 3-5 variables that would guarantee payment of patients’ insurance claims, and keep the money coming in as well as the patients.
To help remember and better implement the system, Dr. Jay created the acronym SWAGR. For a breakdown of each letter, visit: http://www.ianaltman.com/podcast/jay-greenstein/
