Do you use a range of software tools in your practice? The following tools might be worth exploring.
Tool #1 - Patient management systems (aka CRM)
There are a number of excellent patient (or practice) management systems (PMS) available to help streamline tasks and support patient interactions. I’ll go into this in more detail next month, but the PMS is probably the central software component of your business, since it gets the most day-to-day use. It can help with the following:
- Storing general patient information
- Managing appointments
- Managing referrers
- Correspondence processes.
Whilst many PMS products do invoicing, employers also have payroll to consider as well as other compliance issues. This is where accounting software really comes into its own.
- Rounded for sole traders
#3 Document/file management
By getting all your documents stored electronically, anybody can find what they need at any time and you can have backups no matter what adversity hits your office. By being cloud based, there are never any physical issues around storage, or the risk of having all the data stored on a single device.
