On the blog

  • At Cliniko, we’ve never had employee KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). Evidence suggests that these measurements can hinder rather than help employee performance and negatively impact work culture. Read our thoughts here!
  • Virtual assistants (known as VAs) can help ease clinic growing pains and also provide some much-needed help if you’re feeling in over your head. Learn more about the basics of looking for a VA service, and how to spot the good ones.
  • Dave James knows his stuff when it comes to helping practice owners reach their goals of building a successful business while also living happy, fulfilling lives. He has some sage advice on how to avoid some common missteps when building a private practice.

David Birley of The Osteopaths, aGeelong-based clinic, knows what it takes to start a business from scratch. In fact, he’s done it twice: once in New Zealand, and one in Australia. He has some well-earned advice on what it takes to rebuild from the ground up and operate a successful in-person and remote clinic.

Connected App
