Not All Patient Intake Solutions Are Created Equal: Part 3
A Yosi Health Multi-Part Series
This is Part 3 of our new 8-part series that explores the ins-and-outs of identifying the best patient intake solution for your healthcare practice. Not all patient intake solutions are created equal, which is why it’s important to know about different program features, functionalities, and what to look out for.
Part 3: The Perils of Not Being Able to Customize and Automate Your Practice’s Intake and Registration Workflows Quickly
Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR’s) are powerful tools that give physicians up-to-date, accurate information about their patients. These health records are essential in informing providers so that they can make timely and appropriate treatment recommendations; confident they are doing so having “a full picture” of their patient’s individual medical histories available.
That’s why inputting and maintaining error-free medical records is a critical component of any patient care program and why not being able to integrate automation into your practice’s ancillary workflows is costing your business money, time, and even reputation.
Leveraging Technology for Your Medical Practice
When it comes to leveraging technology to improve office workflows, historically, many practices have adapted a piecemeal approach. Responding to a specific practice need, they might automate one component of their administrative process, while remaining behind with another aspect of it. This leads to a patchwork tapestry of office solutions, many of which must be managed separately, resulting in the staff often engaging in repetitive tasks, multiple dashboards, and quirky workarounds as they update disparate platforms.
It’s bad enough when systems within one office aren’t aligned and talking to one another, but when these systems aren’t able to easily interact with external databases, offices, or professionals, it effectively throws a big monkey-wrench into efficient patient care.
Upgrading Your Tech
The pandemic has triggered many practices to upgrading their technology to better serve patients under the new restrictions and patient concerns about their safety. This has led to a marketplace full of limited solutions that might adequately service one need, but not address other functions that would benefit from automation.
That’s why, when choosing a platform for your medical practice, it is paramount to identify one that addresses and support all the elements that make up your office’s well evolved workflows. Is the solution you’re considering customizable to the existing nuances of your practice? Will it work in synch with your patient intake, data entry, and patient billing needs? And is it flexible enough to assimilate your future needs?
