Is your medical practice trying to do more with less?
Today’s principle might help…
This BIG Ideas Podcast describes a principle as much as it describes an application of business intelligence for medical practices. The principle is standardization leads to automation. The more practices can standardize workflows, procedures, and even the language providers use, the more I can consistently pull data and run reports. If you can standardize more of your practice operations, I can automate process and help you do more with fewer staff. Today’s example is a practice that can automatically tell whether a patient was properly scheduled with a provider or their advanced practitioner for their next appointment. Rather than pay someone to look at all future appointments for problems, the practice standardized the clinical language to indicate who the patient should see next.
What have you done to standardize operations in your practice?
