In this series, we’ve been discussing how EMR software such as Practice Perfect can be leveraged to help your clinic spend more time treating patients.
We all know how easy it is to be swept up by the tedium of routine. But routines can be built around your EMR software to shave time off of the tedious tasks, and give time back to the most important one: Treating your patients. In this article, we’ll be concluding our discussion on how EMR software helps you spend more time treating patients.
With the advent of internet technologies, EMR software is adapting to integrate with the ever-changing platform. Practice Perfect, in particular, has done so in a number of different ways.
We introduced a patient self-booking portal where patients can book their own appointments online from the comfort of their homes. This features helped therapists spend more time attending to patients because the patients can book their own appointments, on their own time, and they don’t have to worry about getting the therapists on the phone to do so. And if you’ve ever tried to get a busy therapist on the phone, you’ll know that there are many easier things to do.
More and more often, we have clinics asking us if we’ll be adding any new web integrations. Our next integration involves hosting patient intake forms, medical history forms online. This feature will enable patients to supply vital information pertaining to their treatment prior to the appointment. In effect, therapists won’t need to waste any time having the patient fill out a form as part of their appointment, and treatment can begin even sooner.
When you’re using a software as robust as Practice Perfect, you aren’t going to know how to use it to its full potential right off the bat. That’s why it’s important to work with a practice management software vendor who can provide you with as much support as you need—at no extra cost.
Allow me to provide you with an example. Say, for instance, you have some patients who are receiving insurance from a certain insurance carrier. Let’s pretend that this insurance carrier requires a very specific evaluation to be done for all of their patients. But the issue is that this evaluation can’t be found in your canned templates. Well, with the help of our support department, this is a nonissue.
