While necessary, administrative and operational tasks can use up a lot of the time your dermatology practice could dedicate to patient care. When you free up this time, you can focus more on attracting and treating your new and current patients.
Tips on How to Free up Time for Patient Care
Your patients are more likely to feel satisfied with your dermatology services and keep coming back when you meet their needs. The best way to accomplish this goal is to spend enough time with them.
Here are four ways to spend more time with patients:
1. Prepare in Advance
It's always best to take a few moments to prepare before your patient's appointment. If you know what kind of dermatology service they'll require, it helps to have all of the supplies laid out and ready.
Then, when your patient arrives for their appointment, you can dedicate your full attention to them.
2. Have Assistance
Ensuring your practice is equipped with enough staff is key to maintaining productivity and operating efficiently. Having an assistant available means you'll always have someone ready to prepare supplies or explain to patients how to manage their conditions or medications once the appointment is over.
Many dermatologists also find it helpful to have a scribe present to take notes so that they can spend more time examining and treating patients.
3. Get Help With Administrative Tasks
Handling administrative duties and paperwork often takes up a significant amount of time. Getting assistance with or automating these kinds of tasks can help your practice achieve a better workflow and maximize your time each day.
4. Partner With a Practice Management Company
Partnering with a practice management company is a great way to maximize time with patients. At DermCare, we offer support in several key areas, including:
- Group purchasing.
