How can a good CMS help you save cost?
Most clinics do have a Clinic-Management System(CMS), but do you know that having a good CMS is extremely important for clinics, as it can potentially help you save/retrieve costs that might potentially add up to hundreds/thousands in many instances in short span of a month!

When EHR software saves time, facilitates save money
The efficiency that EHR software provides makes it faster and easier for medical staff to get their work done. Patient records can be accessed from anywhere on any platform which significantly cuts down on time wasted going from one place to the next to transfer files. Providers can simply log in on a portable tablet or smartphone to access the information they need and then carry on with their day.
It also saves time on communications with patients. Staff can take a scheduled break to check all of their messages at once and respond to patients' questions, rather than facing repeated interruptions all day long through phone calls or drop-in visits. With staff able to focus on their tasks, they can comfortably increase their workloads or see more patients, bringing in additional funds for their organizations.Read More
Streamline physician work flow
Happy workers make successful workplaces, and it goes without saying that recent changes in healthcare have increased the administrative burden on clinicians. Helping them streamline their work flow will increase efficiencies and savings, says Jay Anders, MD, chief medical officer at Medicomp Systems, a medical device manufacturer and developer.
“Ask any physician now using an EHR and they would say their administrative burden has increased three-fold,” Anders says.
That’s why looking for EHR efficiency improvements is a good place to begin when seeking to reduce administrative costs. Physicians are more productive if they aren’t bogged down in the system, says Anders.Read More
