When dietitians consider self-employment and freelance work, we find barriers to entry that can feel overwhelming—the branding, marketing, business licenses, tax questions, website, HIPAA, and technology. NutriScape staff can help you find quick solutions to all these problems.
Help With Finding Nutrition Clients
And then, there is the biggest problem, by far, when offering services online. How do you attract a steady stream of clients looking for help within your specialty and marketing nationwide without violating state laws.
Help With Screening for Your Ideal Clients
NutriScape.NET is designed and built as a registered dietitian’s ideal ecosystem for entrepreneurship. By providing relevant dietitian resources on every aspect of nutrition and dietetics, NutriScape.NET is the only online site that provides range and scale we need to create the natural “marketing funnel” needed to efficiently connect you to the right niche clients searching for your services.
Enjoy The Freedom to Set Up Your Business Your Way
Your own hours and prices. Have some “no shows”? NutriScape’s availability feature can let clients know you’re available immediately in real time. Name your specialty. Work from anywhere over a secure HIPAA compliant portal. Receive referrals from the NutriScape.NET website for clients in your state of licensure and many other states with licensure laws that don’t require purchase of a state license. Your page will be promoted to your local healthcare providers and will benefit from the organic traffic on the network to connect with clients searching for the answers only a dietitian can provide.
Maintain Your Independence
You will be working directly for the client and will be paid directly by them through the online systems. You will be operating as an independent business person and will be responsible for following all relevant business law in your state of operation.
NutriScape Markets Your Services
Medical Providers: NutriScape will market your online services to medical providers in your region.
Organic Web Traffic and Social Media Marketing: NutriScape provides the massive online web presence needed to assure that users looking for the exact services you offer will be able to find you. You can also boost your presence on our site by offering articles in your specialty or recipes.
Real Time Availability Feature: You can alert potential clients to your immediate availability with the flip of a switch. This allows you to fill in unused hours in your schedule while meeting the client’s desire for immediate answers.
Get Online and Earning Fast
We Set up Your NutriScape.NET Web Page
NutriScape.NET will set up your profile page, including your professional biography and specialty areas. Clients in specific states will be able to access your profile page. You’ll never have to worry about running afoul of state licensure laws because the system allows access only to clients in states whose licensure laws allow you to legally provide medical nutrition therapy via telehealth services.
You Choose your Telehealth Portal
We Set up Your Online Calendar
NutriScape will assist you in setting up and integrating your NutriScape telehealth presence with the virtual office portal for your telehealth platform.
Your NutriScape.NET profile page will show your automated appointment calendar. NutriScape staff will customize your initial appointment schedule and integrate the appointment system with the payment processor. The client will be prompted for payment when the appointment is booked and will then receive email reminders directing them to your online portal.
The Kalix platform offers an excellent balance of cost, simplicity and functionality. It was designed specifically for our profession by a registered dietitian. The Kalix Virtual Practice Plan integrates an EMR and calendar with a HIPAA compliant telehealth portal that allows you to charge your clients in advance for your appointment.
If you want complete flexibility and work-life balance, you may want to skip the appointment booking process altogether. NutriScape’s real-time availability feature allows you to pop online with complete flexibility as you juggle kids lunches and soccer practice. The Doxy.me Professional Plan is an excellent choice for accepting unscheduled clients generated by NutriScape web traffic or your own social media activities. It is by far the simplest portal as it does not offer a calendar and medical records system and clients pay by credit card during the online session.
If you are interested in offering online webinars in addition to your telehealth services, the Healthie Practice Plus plan provides the ability to host such online groups.
If you already have an established practice or prefer to use a different platform, any portal that guarantees HIPAA compliance and offers a BAA may be utilized for your NutriScape activities. Skype and Facetime are examples of connections that don’t meet our HIPAA requirements.
We Integrate Your NutriScape Page, Portal Calendar, and Payment Processor
NutriScape.NET offers assistance in setting up your online credit card processing account with Stripe and will connect this account with your online portal and appointment systems. At this point, your system will be ready to connect you with clients and receive their payments automatically deposited into your business bank account.
In order to determine monthly fees and provide administrative support, NutriScape.NET requires ongoing administrative access to the online meeting portal and limited view only access to your Stripe account. NutriScape charges a monthly fee equal to 20% of total revenue.
