Dealing with Workers’ Compensation (WC) cases as an orthopedist can be a major challenge. Because orthopedists are considered specialists, most Workers’ Compensation cases don’t come straight to you—first, the injured worker has to go to their primary care physician or another treating doctor who then refers the worker to you.
In the overall healthcare industry, patient satisfaction has become an incredibly important topic. Improving patient satisfaction in clinics can be challenging, however—and this is no less true for orthopaedic clinics than it is for any other type of practice. Orthopaedic specialists have to consider many questions, such as: “What is patient satisfaction? What affects it? What does it mean for my orthopaedic clinic? How do I measure it? And, how can I improve patient satisfaction and outcomes in my practice?”
Orthopaedic practices everywhere can benefit greatly from using a picture archiving and communication system (PACS). Why do orthopaedic clinics, in particular, need a PACS imaging system for their practice?
Finding the right Electronic Health Records software (or EHR software) can have a significant impact on a medical practice’s ability to efficiently manage paperwork and help patients. However, the need to find an EHR specific to a clinic’s given subspecialty can make it difficult to find a good fit.
The patient check-in process is among the most deceptively important components of every clinic visit. This step in the patient care coordination process sets the tone and is the process that allows doctors to gain an understanding of why a patient is there before they ever walk into an examination room.
In any orthopaedic (orthopedic) practice, a common goal is to see and help as many patients as possible. Being able to increase patient intake allows a clinic to earn more money and do more good for the community at large. For this reason, it is important for practices to find ways to reduce clinic workflow bottlenecks and improve patient flow.
Electronic Health Records software, otherwise known as EHR software, has become increasingly important to orthopaedic practice management (orthopedic practice management) over the last few years.
