If you work in medical administration, anything that can speed up your work will not only make your life easier but will also save your practice money. Thankfully there are digital tools out there that can help you get through these necessary tasks more quickly.
Read on as we look at three digital tools every medical administration assistant should be using.
If you work (or would like to work) as a medical administrative assistant, then you’ll need to deal with a whole range of tasks, from appointment reminders to payment processing.
Power Diary is a practice management software package that can help to speed up many of the tasks you will face each day. It includes one-click calendar management to help you manage multiple diaries in one place. It can also automatically generate email and SMS appointment reminders to save you having to chase up patients.
It also includes online booking and payment processing, taking more of the mundane and time-consuming jobs off your hands and giving you more time to deal with the most important tasks.
Dealing with waiting lines and walk-ins can get in the way of other tasks. Qminder is a queue management system that can automate patient queuing. Patients sign themselves in using iPads located at the door. They will be informed of the current service status and can see where they are in the queue.
The software can even analyze wait times to help you improve the time management at your practice, resulting in shorter wait times, reduced complaints, and fewer walkaways.
It will free you up to deal with any patients that have further issues, allowing you to provide better customer service for all.
As we have already seen, billing and insurance processing can eat up a huge amount of your time. Kareo is a medical billing system solution that allows you to schedule patients, confirm that they have insurance, and even manage delinquent accounts.
