With Better Configurability Comes Better Usability

“You can improve your Clinic Management System by yourself for Better Usability”

Configure – To design or adapt to form a specific configuration or for some specific purpose.

Many of you might have come across things you dislike on your current CMS. But what annoys you more is that you have to live with it, with little to no options of allowing certain things to appear or to be hidden with a click of a button.

This might not seem like a lot, but it can definitely help you better with your day to day work. If you get to use a system with options to let you “play” around with the configurations and let you set what you want to see, it can better increase the overall usability of the system.

Over at SGIMED, we offer many options and different types of configurations for doctors to see what the want to see. Some like it as simple as possible. Some like to have as many functions available at one go to make it more robust, but we leave the decision of how you want to see things the way you want it.

Below are some articles you can read on why is a configurable solution good:

Configurable Solutions Have Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Applications designed to allow easy configuration via an intuitive user interface provide the ability to add or change users, security privileges, approval routings, fields, page layouts, and more.

Truly configurable applications are always fully supported whenever new versions are released. This means that software vendors have reviewed backward compatibility to ensure past and future functionality with the ability to configure without breaking how the application or any integrations work.

Configurable Solutions

Implementation time is greatly reduced. Because you’re purchasing a system whose underlying structure is the same for all users, implementation can take as little as a month or less, and that typically includes an implementation specialist working with you to configure the system the way you want it from the start.

Volume of usage keeps the solution at the cutting edge of technology. With thousands of organizations using the same core system, the software provider receives constant feedback and is able to identify and incorporate the updates that will benefit the most users possible.

Updates to the system are typically free. Whereas a customized solution requires you to hire a software developer to make any changes or updates, providers of configurable systems constantly install updates to your system for you, without the need for any work or resources spent on your end. Plus, those updates are normally free (included in your subscription cost).
