Practice Growth - A Lifeline for your Practice
In the business world, there is one simple rule which should govern your entire chiropractic clinic: Every decision you make should be geared towards invoking patients' decisions to remain involved in your practice, paying for their services or towards increasing referrals. If it isn't one of these three things then it isn't a sound investment in your practice.
So what's all this fuss about electronic clinic management? How can a digital clinic help further these three rules of having a successful practice? Well, it turns out arming your clinic with an electronic clinic management system like the Virtual Office Suite offered by Future Health is a sound investment towards promoting your practice's growth.
Convincing Patients to Stay
There are many factors which determine if a patient decides to continue with or end their care. Good results are a high priority of any patient but even greater is the patient's understanding of your treatment objective. You have to help your patients understand what you do on the most important front: the patient plan of care.
Patients without a care plan have no reason to stay when their pain is gone, no commitment to your practice. How can they if no functional goals in a care plan are ever written down? A patient who knows and understands the nuts and bolts behind your actions can better understand why these services are necessary in order to recovery from their ailment.
Digital documentation is the tool which can be used to retain new patients. Future Health's digital documentation software combined with their scheduler allows your practice to establish these highly desirable results. These systems allow your patients to achieve a new level of understanding about your practice. They now have reasons to stay with your practice, beyond initial relief because they can understand where you're coming from.
The Art of Successful Billing
It is obvious, no matter who you are, than whenever a claim is filed and the bill returned due to a billing error, your practice is loosing money. These errors can lead to even more trouble when patients begin to reconsider their commitment to their care. With any form of technology you choose to implement into your clinic you should ensure this technology will not only save you time but include a system of checks and balances to ensure your documentation doesn't have any errors. This software should support a stronger and deeper documentation standard in your office without placing any more demands on your time.
Quick, Go Tell Your Friends!
Patients desire a high-tech doctor with empathy skills up to par. The power of this perception is at its peak when the doctor is running a completely digital clinic. Patient education and digital presentations of X-Rays are paramount when done both smoothly and conveniently. These forms of knowledge transfer are what links information about your practice and increases the amount of referrals to your practice.
