Starting Your Solo Practice: Your Technology Suite (05/24/22)

Technology can help solo practitioners run a more streamlined and efficient practice, but it can also be a time-consuming endeavor. There are so many companies and platforms on the market that it can be hard to determine what you need and which offering will work best for you. In this program, we’ll hear from several solo practitioners about what technologies they use and how they leverage them in their practice. You’ll hear first-hand testimonials instead of sales pitches and gain a clearer sense of how you can use these technologies to make your practice (and life) run more smoothly.
