As a result of the major demographic shifts over the past century, the medical practice is a lot different than it was a mere 10 years ago. Doctors are no longer as plentiful in the United States, which has led to a scenario in which medical practices have grown larger, serving more patience than ever. With large-scale medical clinics, medical doctors can serve patients at more rapid rate than ever. But this increase has also led to some serious productivity issues which many large clinic practices have not corrected.
Medical imaging is one of the tools offered by Medical Software Associates to increase productivity, especially in mid to large growing practices. As practices grow, the tendency of many medical office managers is to look to the practices of the past: when more patients need to be served, and more work needs to be done, the only solution is to hire more medical assistance.
What has changed his dynamic for many medical practices is the fact that computer systems have created incredible bursts of productivity without the need to hire new human resources. Medical imaging, as an example, provides doctors with the ability to save patient diagnosis images to a centralized practice management software system, which enables these images to be pulled up with the click of a mouse. And in conjunction with an electronic medical records system, medical imaging can greatly reduce the time spent in each individual physician-patient appointment.
Medical imaging and paper reduction
Today's mid to large growing clinic or practice typically has one major problem, an issue which has been a problem since the 20th century for medical practices. That problem? Paperwork. Currently across North America, medical practices are fighting a massive productivity buoyed created by paper medical records, and an old paper eight practice management system. In effect, many medical practices which do not use medical imaging have to hire specialized personnel simply to deal with patient files and medical records. Administrative costs have skyrocketed as a result of this.
Imaging return on investment
One of the most dynamic features of medical imaging is the fact that it
provides such a quick return on investment for medical practices which
invest in it. As a while, when teamed with Medical Software Associates
products such as electronic medical records, medical billing, and practice
management software, overall costs can be cut markedly. In mid to large
practices, this means a return on investment of months as opposed to the
multi-year return on investment advertised by many of our competitors.
Medical imaging is a key part of this equation because
it enables the doctor to better serve the patient from any examination
room with a networked PC. The hardware costs, because of commodity pricing
for personal computers, is very low, especially in comparison with some
of our competitors, who you specialized hardware. This all adds up to
a quickly recognizable efficiency boost in not only patient appointments,
but also administrative duties such as medical billing and medical records
