Strategies to enhance your scheduling process, step 4

EMR/EHR

Abstract
Patient appointments are the gateway to your practice’s revenue. If scheduling and appointments aren’t managed well, you’re going to have holes in your schedule…and your bank account. The pitfalls of patient scheduling–no shows, forgotten appointments, and cancellations–negatively impact the smooth running of your practice and your bottom line. Getting on top of scheduling means you’re going to have to proactively manage your patient flow. With new technologies and expanded functionality, practice management systems for scheduling have the ability to keep your practice and your patients on track.

5 Key strategies to enhance your scheduling process, step 4 of 5

4. Know what your day looks like

Look for scheduling software that works for you and your staff, that’s easy to manage and doesn’t require you to hunt around to see what your day looks like. Being able to see your daily appointment count by each provider, resource or room will let you fill any holes in the schedule. Some systems even have the ability to color code by appointment type, add repeating events and set aside blocks of time.

Quick-look summaries of patient contact information, appointment type, duration and notes are going to help you prepare more efficiently, so you can spend more time on your first priority: your patients. It’s also important that your scheduling system is customizable to fit the nature of your practice. The scheduling software also needs to take into account practices that might have several medical providers and locations.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
