Fourteen Great Health care business ideas to consider:

1 – Medical transcription services

Medical transcriptionists transcribe doctors, nurses, and other health care practitioner’s voice recordings into written documents for patient’s records. Speech recognition technology has improved the efficiency of medical transcription, sure. But it certainly hasn’t yet replaced the need for human transcriptionists to review and correct the transcriptions to make sure they’re accurate.

This is a great business to run from home because you can make your own hours, and all the work can be done digitally. Plus, if you’re digitally savvy and can create an efficient (and secure) way to share files, you can really one-up the competition.

2- Medical records management

Start a service that manages medical records for hospitals, clinics, and doctor’s offices. You can work with clients to identify the best records management systems, implement them, and provide their staff with training on how to use the systems.

 Another approach is that you can offer full-service medical records management, and clients can outsource the work to you. This can be helpful for boutique practices and sole practitioners who need the organization but can’t afford the in-house staff.

3 – Physical/occupational therapy center

Physical therapists help patients recover from injuries to regain their full range of motion and reduce pain. Occupational therapists provide more specific therapy to help patients perform tasks of daily living, such as dressing themselves or feeding themselves. You can specialize in one or the other or put both under one roof. Note that this does require hiring training and planning a group of physiotherapists.

4 – Develop a health care app

Both health care providers and individuals alike are increasingly turning to mobile apps to track record and manage medical conditions. The world is your oyster if you’re skilled in app development, so you might want to consider developing your own health care app targeting these markets. Do some field research to find out where your skills can fit a need?

5 – Diabetic care center:                                                                                                                                                                        

Opening a diabetic care center can help diabetic patients improve their quality of life by providing nutrition counseling, dialysis and other medical services. You can also provide preventive help such as teaching healthy eating habits or providing support groups for diabetics.

6 – Home health care service    

A home health care business provides in-home medical care for recently discharged hospital patients, patients with chronic health conditions, seniors and others who need assistance managing their health.In states with rapidly aging populations, not only could this be a benefit to the community — but also a strong business prospect for you.

7 – Medical foot care

A growing population of seniors and diabetics means more need for foot care services. Something as simple as trimming toenails can be impossible for seniors and overweight patients who can’t reach their feet. You can either open a foot care clinic or save patients a trip to the podiatrist by providing mobile foot care services in their homes. You’ll need to train as a podiatrist or hire one.

8 – Childbirth services

Today’s expectant parents want to control every aspect of childbirth, and that often includes having a midwife or trained dai present at the birth. The use of midwives is increasing.

Midwives are trained health care providers who assist women during childbirth, while a dai is more like a pregnancy coach who helps couples arrange all aspects of the birth and caring for the newborn. You can open a business that employs contractors under your umbrella.

9 – Medical billing service

Medical billing requires performing complex coding when submitting insurance claims. Keep in mind; certification is required in this field to ensure that doctors and other health care practitioners get paid.

Although big hospitals and health care organizations often have in-house staff, small medical practices that don’t have time to manage billing and coding themselves are an ideal market for medical billing services.

Acquire and learnmedical billing software, get trained in proper coding and target these smaller medical practices to take medical billing hassles off their hands. And you can even earn your certification online.

10 – Nutritionist/dietitian

If you want to help people improve their nutritional intake and habits, you can build a business as a nutritionist or dietitian. Nutritionists can advertise themselves as dietitians. You can specialize in different types of clients, such as sports nutrition, nutrition for weight loss or holistic nutrition.

11 – Alternative health care

Acupuncture and massage therapy are two alternative health care business ideas that are becoming more popular. Many are using these services to supplement their traditional medical treatment — or as a primary treatment unto itself.

Check with your state to see what the requirements are to practice; they vary across the country. Even when health insurance plans don’t provide coverage, Indians are more willing to pay out-of-pocket for these types of care than they used to be.

12 – Health information website:

If you have health care expertise — or access to people who do — consider starting a website to provide health care information and advice. You can create all kinds of content, such as podcasts, YouTube videos and even online classes, in addition to blog posts.

You might even be able to get health care experts to contribute content for free in exchange for the publicity your site offers. There are a lot of options; just make certain that you do some market research to figure out the white space to fill and find viable revenue streams to make your business highly sustainable, too.

13 – Medical supply sales

Seniors, people with disabilities and those with chronic illnesses have an ongoing need for medical supplies and equipment. This can include walkers, braces, bedpans and more.

Although you can open a physical store, keep in mind that your target customers will often have difficulty getting to your location, so an online store is likely a better bet. Again, research here will be the key so you can make sure that you’re stocking the right products and marketing in the right places.

14 – Respite care service for caregivers

Whether they’re parents caring for severely disabled children or adult children caring for aging parents, caregivers have a stressful job. Provide a much-needed break for caregivers by starting a respite care business. Your caregivers can come in for a few hours or a few days, giving family caregivers a chance to rest.

  • How do I start a health care business?

When you start a health care business, it can be helpful to begin by writing a business plan, registering your business, and hiring employees.

While all businesses need to obtain any necessary licenses, permits and forms of insurance, health care businesses may require earning professional designations or taking out extra forms of insurance. Research what you need to run your business safely and legally before you launch.

  • How do I start a home health care business?

Starting a home health care business requires a high level of professionalism, even if you’re running a business where the bulk of the work will occur in your clients’ homes. For example, you may still need office space to train your employees.

Like starting any business, it is important to write a business plan, register your business and create proper business procedures. You should also obtain any necessary licenses, permits and insurance for running a business in your area, as well as for working within the health care industry.

  • How do I write a business plan in health care?

In general, a business plan is an organizational tool that business owners can follow when they need guidance. This document can also tell outside parties, such as investors, about your business and its value.

A good business plan should include thorough research about your industry, market and competitors, as well as dive into your financials, products and services and your marketing plan. When writing a business plan in health care, it will be important to do heavy research on the industry, as well as outline clearly what medical services or products you will be offering and why you or your staff is qualified to run a health care business safely.

  • The bottom line

There are a lot of potential great health care business ideas for entrepreneurs interested in the health care sector — and many opportunities for health care business ideas to become real, sustainable businesses.

Be sure to check regulations, licensing, professional training, or degrees needed for these businesses before you get started and do lots of market research.

 Don’t forget that “care” part, of course.
