Quality care, enhanced patient satisfaction, effective engagement, optimal resource utilization, and growth of your weight loss practice all rely on efficient patient flow management.
The days of having to manually track new leads for your weight loss practice, referral sources, secure communication, patient conversion, requirements for weight loss surgery insurance authorization, and ongoing patient education are over. While manual processes may work for a period of time, they prove to be time-consuming, prone to errors, and in the long run, more expensive than streamlined options. And, if you are serious about growing your weight loss practice, such manual efforts can hinder your progress.
As you are likely aware, Patient Flow® is one of the most robust and reliable software systems available to practitioners and health systems that actually allows you to do all of this in one place. In addition, you can save money by consolidating some of your software systems. You can also integrate Patient Flow® into your current electronic medical record for added automation to easily keep everything secure and up to date.
You may be wondering what other valuable features are available that can positively impact your weight loss practice day-to-day operations as well as your patient care processes. Below are some of these features:
Real-Time Patient Tracking
Patient Flow® software enables healthcare teams to track patients’ movement in real-time throughout their healthcare journey. This feature provides an instant overview of the status of each patient as they move from being an interested patient to an established patient. You no longer have to worry about people ‘falling through the crack’. With real-time patient tracking, your team can better manage their workflows, allocate resources efficiently, and provide more efficient care and communication. This also enhances your patient experience and the likelihood of a positive review and more patient referrals.
Automated Task Assignment and Reminders
Patient Flow® software includes the ability for automated task assignment (for your team and for your patients) as well as reminder features to streamline communication and coordination of your care. You determine the automatic tasks based upon predefined rules and priorities. By automating these processes, you can make sure your patients know exactly what they need to complete – even their own customized ‘to do’ list. Your team can then focus more on delivering quality patient care with less time on manual coordination of tasks and tracking patient compliance.
Data Analytics and Performance Metrics
Patient Flow® software offers powerful data analytics capabilities for one location or across an entire business enterprise. These analytics tools can generate comprehensive reports with graphic representations that enable you to identify potential bottlenecks, analyze trends, and make data-driven decisions. By monitoring key performance metrics, you can identify areas for improvement and continuously improve nearly every important aspect of your practice. At any point, you can gauge the health of your practice.
Streamlined Patient Processes, Software and Communication
Are you tired of maintaining multiple databases? Perhaps a database for new patient leads, customized e-mail communication, text messaging, phone calls, website inquiries and more! Yet, none actually communicate with your EMR? It is very convenient for you and your team to have everything in one HIPAA compliant place. And, Patient Flow® is inter-operable with your existing EMR so you aren’t entering information more than once – saving time and precious financial resources. You can automate all documentation as well as patient education. While it may seem too good to be true, such comprehensive software improves the efficiency of your team while improving patient communication and satisfaction.
Patient Flow® software has revolutionized the way healthcare team’s manage patient care, leading to enhanced team performance and improved patient outcomes. The features outlined highlight the true power available to you and your practice today.
