3 Ways To Save Time So You Can Take Care Of People, Not Paperwork
You’ll never hear a chiropractor say that they became a DC because they wanted to take care of paperwork. Chiropractors are renowned for their desire to help people feel better, however, the chiropractic business also requires spending time taking care of daily tasks like paperwork, phone calls, and scheduling. Fortunately, there are ways to make those tasks go much more quickly so that chiropractors and their staff can focus more of their time on patients.
Automate Scheduling & Reminders
With the right EHR software, patients can schedule or reschedule an appointment through an app on their phone. This drastically cuts down on the amount of time it takes staff to answer phone calls about scheduling new appointments, or to respond to voicemails from patients who need to reschedule an appointment.Similarly, automated text messages allow doctors to send reminders about scheduled appointments. Patients can respond to the texts by confirming an appointment, or by rescheduling through the app. Patients can even be automatically sent a text if they’re 15 minutes late, which they can respond to by either confirming they’re on their way or that they will reschedule on the app.
An EHR system with an electronic patient kiosk revs up the pace of both patient check-in time and SOAP note recordings. When patients come in for an appointment, they sign in quickly by simply swiping a health card at an electronic kiosk.Once in the adjusting room, they are able to answer questions about their level of pain or loss of function on a computer screen. This effectively completes the subjective information for the doctor’s S.O.A.P notes, which saves both the patient and doctor time.
The average chiropractic office loses a minimum of 3% of insurance collections thanks to delayed filing or rejected claims.
