Having software to help keep track of medical records and patient relations is essential to the smooth operation of a good medical practice. As a matter of fact, the use of patient appointment reminder software by the University of Rochester as well as Johns Hopkins resulted in a 30% drop in no-show rates. When this is considered in terms of revenue, follow ups and avoidance of complications, the percentage is worth noting.
While there are plenty of different reminder software systems available, not all of them are created equally and some overcharge for the same services offered by other companies. Ideally, you want the most economical deal which offers you a phone system, group messaging, social reviews, and intra-office communication. This will streamline all office efforts and reduce problems significantly. With fewer no-show patients, scheduling obviously becomes easier.
An affordable service can be found to offer you excellent software and customer support without having to sign a term contract. No cost phone integration along with your Practice Management System initiates coordination of less expensive phone service. The software will compile social reviews for collection of data. Group messaging allows staff to send large amounts of appointment reminders at a single time.
You will be provided with an intra-office communication system which provides for greater efficiency in staff-to-staff communications. Reminders are automatically provided as part of this system and it is tied to the scheduling. Therefore, everyone can keep a clear eagle eye on patient activity. With free training and full customer support, it is impossible to go wrong. Even if it isn’t the right service for your practice, at least there is no obligation to stay with non-contract services offering such a wide range of benefits to your practice at low monthly rates. Your practice is your business, so streamlining it can result in greater profits.
