Practice life is busier than ever, with no signs of slowing down. According to the Veterinary Industry Tracker from VetSuccess.com, spring 2021 veterinary visits were up by as much as 31% compared to spring 2020. You know that the never-ending stream of hectic days can lead to low team morale, fatigue, and burnout. Your team’s wellbeing is a top priority, and you constantly search for new, innovative ways to keep them happy.
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.
