Automating Health Center? Try Online Appointment Scheduler

April 11th, 2010

If you are looking for the best automated system for your clinic or hospital, you should bank on the software that can work efficiently on multiple tasks such as online patient appointment scheduling, patient reminder, medical answering etc. It is a high time that your health center requires a tool using cutting edge technology and at the same time, the system can be tailored as per your need.

An all-in-one online appointment scheduler typically behaves as medical virtual assistant that offers several services such as fixing up the appointments asked by patients, reminding them about their forthcoming visits to the medical center or calls them instructing regimens suggested by doctor etc. Also, it should answer the calls made by patients for queries or advice.

Specially designed online appointment scheduler comes with great features such as it synchronizes schedules with Google Calendar and sends you on your handheld devices such as iPhone, Smartphone and Blackberry. You can alter, postpone or reschedule such appointments –no matter where are you sitting. This is very useful feature for the health care providers, surgeons, physicians and other specialists who travel out of their centers frequently.

Another benefit that comes with online appointment scheduler is it can be used as prepaid appointment scheduler where patients pay in advance for your consultancy. This tackles no-show patient issue, which is known reason for revenue loss.

When the center is expected to flood with patients’ calls, online appointment scheduler can be tailored to virtual medical front desk that answers the calls according to your need. Doctors can feed the system according to their expertise. Also, the system comes with multilingual option (such as English, French, etc) for a better conversation with foreign patients.

The system can also make calls to patients reminding them about appointments and other schedules at health care center. This, again, is to assure their visit to clinic or hospital and increase the potential.

A fully computerized automated medical office can not only save your time and money but can also help you in generating good revenue and managing the clinic without any hassles.
