A psychotherapy practice that can keep up with technology will have more advantage over other practices. If you are still using outdated, manual processes to oversee patient files and financial details, you could be lagging behind tech-savvy practitioners in your field. It is time you adopt a robust psychotherapy practice management system that is hosted in the cloud. That way, you can streamline your operations and have more time to focus on delivering the best care and services to every patient. Also known as case management software, it will help you and your staff fulfil administrative tasks with ease and enhance the reputation of your practice, so you can be more profitable and reputable in the long run.
An online psychotherapy practice management system has all the necessary features that will improve the way you deliver your services, provide quality patient care, and ensure compliance. Here are some of the ways that it can support your practice:
- Schedule with ease – It’s important to get scheduling right to avoid no-shows, cancellations, and overbooking. The case management software has tools for optimising scheduling your staff and patients, as well as your clinic resources. It has features like one-way integration with your calendar and scheduling apps, email and SMS notifications, reminders for upcoming tasks and appointments, and mobile access.
- Organise documents – The psychotherapy practice management system can be scaled to the way you organise your documents. Use it to make custom folders with unique labels, so you can easily find the documents that you need.
- Keep documents up-to-date – Data entry is simplified with a drag and drop feature and integration with your accounting system to minimise administrative costs, human error, and double data entry. The software can also provide input into your accounting system as you use it to create invoices, billings, or timesheets.
- Workcover and Medicare integration – The software can be linked to WorkCover and Medicare’s portals to facilitate and simplify the claims process, reporting, and billing.
