Our friends at Noble have run their own clinics, worked with thousands of clients, and have seen firsthand the burnout and stress that can come with heavy caseloads, difficult topics, and a lack of time.

With these issues in mind, Noble built their app to support therapists by making between-session support easy and offering an opportunity to earn a passive income. Now, with new CPT codes coming in 2023 that will allow therapists to offer reimbursable remote monitoring support, Noble is revolutionizing remote patient monitoring.

The team at Noble has built a program that you can quickly implement to allow you to reimburse code 989X6 for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) remote monitoring.

This is so exciting for therapists and clinics!

This new CPT code, which is coming into play in January 2023, will allow you to make more money per hour and earn passive revenue. Noble’s system provides everything needed to reimburse:

  • Objective data gathering device integration
  • Assessment and data stream, display, measurement, and integrations
  • HIPAA-compliant integrations into other EHRs
  • Real-time and immediate interventions for elevated symptoms

If you would like to discuss adding their “plug-and-play” remote patient monitoring for 2023 so you can reimburse the new CPT codes, schedule a time to talk with Eric, their CEO at pop.noble.health

Where can you be brave as a private practice owner?

  • Realize that you set the example

Whether they like it or not, or believe it or not, they are role-modeling and creating the culture in their organizations.

  • Realize that your actions and behaviors direct the culture at work
  • Be brave yourself because your staff will follow your lead

The behaviors that I demonstrate as a leader need to include being brave in the workplace.

How to foster bravery in private practice

Psychological safety is one of the number one key components to creating and growing a successful team that supports and drives the business forward.

Employees need to feel like they can express themselves – professionally and honestly – in an environment where they will be respected and listened to, especially if what they have to say may go against the grain.

How to create psychological safety in your team:

  • Role model: demonstrate being brave respectfully and professionally with others
  • Recognize it: when employees are brave, acknowledge it and thank them for it
  • Reward: look for ways to reward people for practicing bravery

By doing this role modeling, recognizing and rewarding on an ongoing basis, the likelihood of the team, the likelihood of individuals, and your likelihood of being braver at work … is significantly greater.

Creating a better relationship with your employees – and boss

H – Harness: harness the energy and excitement that can exist in that relationship and use it to ensure a positive relationship

E – Evolve: the boss helps the employee’s career evolve

L – Learn: practice and experiment with new ideas and directions

P – Proactive: everyone should be proactive in doing the good, new things

You own your career, you own where you’re going, you own your direction and you have to be proactive in ensuring that you have a positive relationship with your boss, and [that] your boss is helping you harness, evolve, and learn [for] you to make great progress.

You can HELP your employees by having a career conversation at least once or twice a year. This is not about clients, projects, or budgets, but it is about the employee’s experience in the practice and business, and how they can move forward.

If you are a leader, practice:

  • Curiosity
  • Active listening
  • Seek first to understand before you make yourself understood

Ed’s advice to private practitioners

You need to reflect on your listening skills. With clients, customers, colleagues, and employees are you truly listening? Once you listen better, you can help better.
