Solutions for appointment scheduling
Research carried out by the Great American Physician Survey, sponsored by Kareo, found that nearly 50% of medical practices consider patient satisfaction highly important. A big factor in the patient experience is the length of time they spend sitting in the waiting room. One thing that can help you with this problem is better appointment scheduling and staff planning. According to Google, 77% of patients perform a web search before booking a medical appointment. Yet, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians’ TransforMED, only about 20% of practices offer patient scheduling software online.
Make scheduling more convenient for your patients
Two things that frustrate patients most often are long periods of time on hold on the phone and the time it takes to arrange an appointment once their call is answered. According to Accenture Analytics, it takes an average of 8 minutes to arrange a medical appointment over the phone and at least 30% of that time is spent on hold. With medical staff scheduling software, your patients can schedule appointments without using the phone and it’s available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Minimize manual scheduling tasks
With medical appointment scheduling software for doctors, the number of calls from patients will eventually decline. According to Peter Legor from Brickmed, “physicians who set up timetables spend a lot of time for appointments and remindings.” The medical office time and attendance management software is a guarantee reduction of manual tasks involved in employee attendance tracking.
Attract more patients
According to Yelp, more than 85% of consumers use the Internet to find local businesses. For many people, using the Internet to make an appointment is more convenient that using the phone because it can be done wherever you are. Another benefit of appointment scheduling software for doctors is that it makes it easier to match your healthcare resources (doctors, nurses, rooms, equipment) to patient needs and schedule your patients and staff around that with the help of employee Time Clock.
Doctors and nurses are the human beings and there are reasons why they may be late or absent from time to time.
If lateness or absence is chronic, that problem must be dealt with as soon as possible. Workly, the scheduling software for hospital, can help you nip such problems in the bud.
