If you are still organising documents, patient files, and billing information manually, you might find yourself spending more time with those administrative tasks and unable to deliver the best possible patient care that is expected of your practice. It’s time to implement the right clinic software that will streamline the way you work. A good solution is usually a combination of electronic health record and electronic medical record systems; an all-in-one platform for tracking patient appointments, financial data, and care notes or results. It’s a single source for information that you can refer to whenever necessary.
But how do you find that kind of software? Check out these tips:
Look up case management solutions for your industry
Consider a case management and reporting system that is designed specifically for healthcare professionals like yourself. Make sure it is built on the input and feedback from industry professionals and tested against the expectations of those users. The best clinic software solutions can be scaled to the size of the organisation and can be configured to the needs of allied health and NDIS service providers, occupational therapists, and vocational rehabilitation consultants.
With cloud-based case management, you can work smarter and more intuitively, with reduced overhead costs and up-to-date security. It also lets you work securely from any web-connected device anytime and anywhere. Reputable providers offer scalable licensing models to eliminate the usual upfront costs associated with conventional software.
Explore the features
Look for clinic software that will reduce your time administering, so you can focus on important tasks like caring for your patients. Make sure it simplifies data entry with a drag-and-drop feature, integration with your accounting system, and scan-to-email. Consider software that can be integrated with Medicare and Workcover’s claims portals, lets you make custom folders and forms, and offers appointment setting and SMS and email notifications.
