Every doctor has patients that miss appointments. There are numerous reasons for this, and it is up to you and your office staff to make sure that those missed appointments do not become lost and forgotten.
In the past, there have been many methods that were used to keep track of missed appointments, but they all required that someone in the office remember to look in a special file, or print a special report. Now there is a better way.
When you use a full-featured office management computer program, your MIA (missing in action) patients remain on your computer screen, until each appointment has been resolved. You and your staff have them as a constant reminder, until each has been rescheduled. No one must remember to look in the special file. No one needs to print a special report. All you have to do is look at your computer and make the recall and reactivation phone calls.
This is only one of many features that should be present in your office management computer program. A full-featured office management program is designed to keep your office efficient and productive. Other features include electronic claims, remembering every insurance claim submitted so you no longer print and file a copy, scanning of documents, and full integration with the your documentation software.
Computer programs designed by a chiropractor give many functional benefits. The right program makes your office as free of paper as is possible. Search out and take advantage of these programs and make your office more efficient with greater productivity than it has had before. The result will be more income and more time that you can spend with family, friends, or in any way that makes you happy!
