Founder and CEO of EON Systems, Derek Greenwood recently published an article in Chiropractic Economics,“The Ultimate Management Tool”. In this article Greenwood talks about the common myths and misconceptions providers may have about practice management software.
The four common myths he speaks of are: Software is just for billing; Software is not very important so you should spend as little time and money as possible on it; You learned everything you need in school and therefore should not spend time learning software and; You think you can handwrite a note faster than software. These are all gone over in detail, giving you the correct information to countermand these misconceptions.
Greenwood says “Modern software is for the management of the entire office. While it does include billing, these programs may include integrated appointment books, inventory control, insurance payment follow up, statistics, EHR SOAP notes and narrative writing, document storage, and much more.” The more powerful, the more the software can do, the more it does for the provider. It helps the provider to be more efficient with their time and do everything they need in the office.
Software is the ultimate management tool, it is often misused, misunderstood, and under-appreciated, but if properly implemented software can make your clinic more efficient, less stressful, less vulnerable to audits, and profitable.
