Sonosoft EMR Patient Reporting Software

Patient report software keeps track of everything that happens in a medical office. Traditionally a doctor would write notes in a chart and send the chart to the front desk for action. That action might include ordering tests or preparing for referrals and eventually the appointment would be billed and then the file would go back in its place.

It sounds like it is a system that works and for a long time it did out of necessity. Here’s what didn’t happen, though.

  1. The patient didn’t really get followed up on. The patient had to remember to book the next appointment.
  2. If a referral happened, the physician had to wait for the referring doctor to send information back and that wait time could be quite long.
  3. When doctor’s offices got busy, paperwork got backed up and billing slowed down and new patients had trouble getting appointments.

Here’s how medical patient data software could help.

When patients come in, the doctor can access their records easily with a few keystrokes. As the patient and the doctor talk and examinations are done, the doctor hits a few keys and automatically updates medical records. The patient data software is intuitive enough to order tests, to trigger events at the administrative desk and paper is not floating around begging to ‘not’ be lost.

Appointments can happen automatically and scheduling can be done well in advance in a way much easier and more efficient than a paper calendar. Also, medical billing happens automatically because reports can be generated with ease and standards are set to government and insurance requirements. Doctors are paid with more expediency this way. Communication with other medical clinics, hospitals and offices is also streamlined and results can come back sooner, especially when the referring doctor is also using patient data software.

When milestones happen, alerts can also come up in the system triggering a phone call to check on a patient, repeat a prescription or book a new test. Patient report software sounds like a big thing to implement but in reality, it’s quite simple.

Office managers who have automated billing systems and patient records management systems can streamline processes and keep on top of paperwork. If various specialties exist within one practice, medical records can be customized so that various fields and records are updated appropriately. The result is cleaner and more organized and results in better served patients and doctors who spend less time on administration.

Patient report software can be purchased online through many software publishers. When looking at software for your practices, consider doing a few evaluations to see which software best suits your needs. It’s also a good idea to buy software upgrade protection, which will likely include support and free upgrades to the software for a year with the option to renew.

Some doctors are a bit hesitant about implementing technology solutions for their office management at first but quickly have their fears alleviated when they read testimonials from others in the medical field who have experienced increased productivity and reduced stress because of the improved way their office is run and their patients are served. If you want more information about implementing patient report software, you can find plenty of online resources to help you.
