Online Practice Scheduling For Medical Professionals

August 3, 2010 by  Filed under: Management 

Remember the old days when your receptionist had to spent 90% of her day writing down appointments? Phoning up patients and schedule and reschedule countless appointments only to cancel them all because she forgot about your golf game. For many this is actually the way they are still running their practices and if you are one of them then I want to introduce you to a whole new way of running and streamlining your medical practice.

Medical scheduling software is specifically designed to “replace” a receptionist or practice manager and relieve the time consuming task of managing your practice appointments. Not only does software make it dead easy, its much more efficient and much more accurate and best of all, you don’t need an experienced practice manager to run it. Its push-button easy and it can free up your qualified staff to do more important tasks.

Practice management software is getting more and more sophisticated with new features and functions coming out daily. The latest trend is for practices to use online scheduling software and services that runs all your appointments from a central online database. You can either use a self hosted version or subscribe to any of the existing services. What’s great about this is that your patients can log in, make appointments, cancel appointments and do a whole host of things that can save you and your staff a lot of time and work.

Most services allows you to automate appointment calls via an automated voice service or it can sent text messages and emails without a member of staff having to lift a finger. In terms of efficiency this can transform your practice. The initial learning curve and transition can be a bit of a challenge but ultimately I believe that online practice management software will become the standard in the future.
