Whether you’re opening your first practice or you’ve served pets and their parents for over two decades, it’s hard to imagine running a successful veterinary practice without a reliable way to process credit cards. When shopping for payment processing options it can be tempting to start by comparing rates, or to just go with the vendor your friends or financial institution recommend.
If your hospital hasn’t yet made the switch to paperless, what’s holding you back? Although the transition may seem daunting, the benefits of a paperless system far outweigh the effort involved and will vastly improve your hospital’s daily operations. Consider these perks of going paperless:
Many hospitals believe they are paperless since they use digital medical records, but they still use paper forms for processes such as patient check-in, surgical consent, and anesthetic monitoring that are scanned into the digital medical record. These “paperless” clinics spend countless hours scanning forms and use precious space storing redundant paper documentation.
In your busy veterinary practice, you take advantage of every opportunity to streamline your workflow and incorporate efficiencies. You rework protocols to cut unnecessary steps, analyze appointment flow, and strategize inventory management. But what about your practice information management software (PIMS)? Does it make your day more efficient or bog you down?
As veterinary practices become busier, finding ways to fit more work into the day is increasingly important. If you are like most practices, you have patients double-booked through the next month, your phone is ringing off the hook, and you are trying to find ways to squeeze in new clients.
