HIPAA compliance may seem cumbersome to some practices, while others find the law downright frightening. The complex law is designed to protect patient privacy, as well as the integrity of the medical practice. There are many reasons why HIPAA compliance is essential to a successful medical practice today.
One of the biggest challenges for many practices is maintaining a high patient retention rate. Some practice’s patient retention methods are more successful than others’ because they have likely created a streamlined system for managing patient communications. You can make this process easier by using the patientNOW Patient Acquisition and Retention (PAR™) system at your practice. The system makes it simple to automate many marketing tasks so patient communications are seamless and effective.
Here are some tips for increasing patient retention rates:
Managing paper records and documents for your patients can be time-consuming and can be a security risk. Many practice managers find it challenging to keep paper records up-to-date and ensure that all paperwork is free of medical errors. Making the switch to an EMR can streamline many of your medical practice’s daily activities and also save you time and money in the long-run. Here are some of the ways an EMR can benefit your practice:
You need to implement an efficient and secure system to manage medical records and generate invoices at your office. Consider going paperless when managing electronic medical records so that you have easy access to files you need at any time. Going paperless can streamline many internal operations and even improve the patient experience. Here are some of the benefits and drawbacks of going paperless with an EMR:
Managing patient documents is an important part of daily operations at your aesthetic practice or medical spa. Consider going paperless with our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) solution to manage those sensitive files with ease. Digitized versions of patient documents are much easier to organize, sort, and access by authorized staff members, and will help you streamline many of the daily tasks at the office. Here are some tips for managing your practice with EMR versus traditional paper filing.
If you are committed to going green, consider going paperless with EMRs. Our digital patient documents are designed to look just like paper charts and pages appear instantly as you flip through the files within the program. PatientNOW EMR comes with a fully-integrated document management system that can capture patient signatures digitally, store photos and other media files, organize scanned images, and take care of word processing tasks with ease. Our EMR barcode system eliminates the need for manual indexing and can reduce data entry errors.
Some of the key benefits of managing your practice with EMR include:
If you are running a very busy medical practice and aren’t completely paperless just yet, you may experience some issues with workflow and communication between patients and staff members. It can be difficult to manage and organize paper documents in larger facilities and keep accurate records of all patients without a digital software program. You will need to make room to store patient files in a secure location and train staff to file all paperwork without making errors.
For many medical practices and medical spas, having access to digital patient documents streamlines many internal processes and reduces the risk of errors. You can increase security of sensitive patient information with an online registration portal, eliminating the need for patients to complete paper authorization forms and other paperwork during the intake process.
