Our Story

Our story is a blank page that begins again with each new client.  

Oracle Hearing Group began 15 years ago with the vision of helping practice owners manage their hearing healthcare business on their own terms.  And not by following the cookie cutter approach espoused by every other management group.   Owners come to us looking for a way to run their businesses successfully while meeting personal and professional goals that cover a broad spectrum.  Some want a significant increase in revenue, others more downtime while continuing to generate significant income from their business.  Some owners are just starting out, others are seeking help in planning an exit strategy that’s on the horizon.

We don’t attend trade shows, appear in industry journal ads or cold call potential clients. Success breeds success, it’s also a great marketing tool. Our clients are typically referred to us by other clients, our vendor partners and occasionally they stumble on the blogs provided on this website.  We don’t spend our time recruiting new members, we don’t need to. Instead, we focus our attention where it should be focused, on you.

"When all else fails, ask for help."

– Michael Poole

We’ve Walked In Your Shoes

Everyone of our consultants has owned a successful hearing healthcare practice. We’ve found that it’s impossible to find individuals who understand the unique characteristics of this profession outside of our industry. They understand you because they’ve been in your shoes. They know what it’s like to work with the hearing impaired, to dispense a hearing aid, to manage a staff when you’ve had zero schooling in how to be a boss. They know what it’s like to be faced with developing an advertising campaign when you aren’t really sure what you’re trying to accomplish except that you need more patients.

Primary Practice Areas

We have found the key to successful practice management.  The solution is simple, the implementation is not.  We begin by assessing 15 separate components in your practice.  We identify the strengths and weaknesses.  We create a plan based on 1, 3 and 5 year personal and professional goals. Each component that necessitates a change is accompanied by a plan.  The change is made, the results are tracked and the process is repeated.   Practice Management is 1 part science, 1 part psychology.

Understanding what’s working in your practice, what isn’t working in your practice and how to implements the changes that are needed is on the surface simplistic, in reality quite complicated.  Every practice owner typically wants to make more money.  Beyond that their goals are unique and diverse.  Every person involved in the operation of the practice will be required to make changes in what they do and how they do it.  Understanding how to get people to change is our biggest challenge.

We Can Take You Where You Want to Go

The key to success in today’s challenging marketplace is the ability to change. More than ever before you will need to change the way you market, what’s required from your employees, how you sell and, well you get the idea. Assessing your practice and tracking the results of any changes will be the easiest thing for you to learn to do. Understanding how to get hearing healthcare professionals, support staff and practice owners to change is the real challenge. Change is scary and the prospect of change is rarely met by practice owners or their staff with an overwhelming degree of support or enthusiasm.

If there is one thing you will learn early in your experience with your consultant from Oracle Hearing it is that businesses are rarely in a static state. They are either in a state of growth or a period of decline. Our goal is to ensure that with our help you are guiding your practice toward the goals you have for today and tomorrow.
