When your medical practice chooses the right practice management system, it heavily influences how successful your practice becomes. Juggling clients’ schedules, medical records, and insurance in the right order can be difficult. But a practice management system makes things much easier to handle.
When trying to get the best software for you, there will be certain features you want. These are some of the best features you will want your practice management system to have.
A practice management system that handles scheduling is highly valued. A feature like this simplifies some of the more complicated processes that a medical practice must undergo daily. You should see if the system you are reviewing has a multi-view calendar option, which would allow for various perspectives of the schedule. There should also be color-coded views that make your data easier to understand, and you should have drag-and-drop appointment scheduling.
Online Patient Portal
An online patient portal allows your patients to access all of their health information from a secure site whenever they wish, provided that they have a secure connection to the Internet and a device necessary to let them access their data.
With an online patient portal, patients will have no trouble knowing about all their medical details, such as their past visits, medications, and appointments they have planned for the future. Some systems even let patients plan appointments and make their payments online.
Integrates with the EHR Workflows
A practice management system will usually focus on tasks revolving around scheduling, payment, and medical billing. EHR, on the other hand, offers tools that help with clinical data capture
But if you can get your practice management system integrated with your EHR system, your practice will be able to reduce the number of data errors it encounters. You will also duplicate your efforts and capture billing charges more easily.
Automatic Appointment Reminders
To maximize attendance, patients need to be reminded of appointments that they have coming up. Patients can sometimes forget about their appointments and not show up when they are expected to show up. Automatic appointment reminders will save your practice considerable time and raise efficiency significantly.
Rather than having someone manually make phone calls to remind patients about their appointments, you can have automated messages handle everything instead. These messages will give patients all the information on their appointments, including the scheduled time and details. This will lower the number of appointments that get cancelled.
