On January 3rd I suggested you 1) validate your backups, 2) unsubscribe from marginal sources of list serv email to reduce clutter and wasted time and 3) take steps to organize and implement your key management reports – hopefully produced from and as a by-product of your every day activity of working in your practice management software. It’s now Feb 3rd, how did you do?
Next - for suggestion #4 why not create a top ten wishlist for areas that your practice support system should help you do more efficiently and effectively. Once you have your wishlist, contact us or whomever you rely on for tips and strategies that can help. Sometimes the solution is simple. You don’t know what you don’t know so you need to ask. You may well be pleasantly surprised at proven solutions that are available.
For suggestion #5 – consider re-visiting your internal processes and related procedures with an eye toward how your practice management software may be employed to streamline the process. Start with the 20% of your common procedures that likely affect 80% of your clients-from ‘Intake to Final Invoice’. Make an outline of your core process.
