Medical CRM for your Clinic

Customer relationship management (CRM) is a vital component of the doctor-patient relationship. This is true even though patients aren’t viewed as customers in the traditional sense. Using a CRM system like Medesk, you can follow each patient’s journey all the way from the first point of contact through to treatment.

Receptionist can mark appointments with coloured tags to mark whether the patient is, for example, a VIP. You can record the purpose of the visit with appointment tags, such as "post-op" for instance.

All these colour-coded tags will help the practice manager sort the clinic data for analysis. Essentially they are anchors that allow you to orient yourself among a veritable sea of useful data.

The Real Significance of CRM for Medical Practice Use

Many practices unnecessarily limit themselves by only using hospital information systems (HIS) which lack CRM functionality. Installing two separate apps in an attempt to solve the problem is by no means going to be effective. Splitting the two sources of data like this just makes a mess that you can’t untangle.

In contrast, Medesk is a comprehensive practice management solution that combines the best HIS and healthcare CRM features. As the practice manager, you’ll receive direct access to the full history of interactions between patients and your clinic staff. In particular, you’ll benefit from the following:

  • Discover how your patients find your practice
  • Learn how much it costs you to attract a specific patient
  • Find out more about receptionists’ conversations with patients
  • Keep an eye on which doctors patients are booking with
  • Measure how much is spent by each patient
  • Gauge the clinical effectiveness of the medical treatment given

Top Tips to Manage Expectations with a Patient CRM

The Most Useful CRM Features for Your Clinic:

Reliable Call Recording

Patients really don’t like having to explain their predicament to receptionists time after time. Thankfully, your patients won’t have to when your receptionists already know the patient’s name and assigned doctor ahead of time.

When you process your calls with Medesk telephony, you’ll leave your patients in no doubt that you’re on their side. As the practice manager, you can even listen to call recordings to help your receptionists improve their communication skills.

Automatic SMS and Email Notifications

With the busy, modern lives we lead, patients sometimes simply forget about their doctor’s appointments. To mitigate the risk of having a daily schedule riddled with DNAs, it’s well worth sending out SMS and email reminders.

With Medesk patient CRM, you can set up automatic patient reminders, and at the same time, inform them of your new services or special offers. You can also segment your audience by demographics and send tailored messages. For example, you could send an email and an SMS exclusively to young parents or students.

Timely Tasks and Reminders

There’s absolutely no need to tire yourself out with trying to remember which patients need to be called with a reminder about their next checkup. Medesk’s CRM for clinics automatically reminds you to get in touch with patients who need specific information about their appointments.

What’s more, you can push this feature even further to boost the quality of your services to patients by letting them know about their test results, requesting feedback and so on.

Electronic Health Records

It’s simply impossible to comprehend a truly modern private practice without an EHR. Fortunately, big, thick sets of notes full of semi-legible scribbles from hurried clinicians are a phenomenon that has been largely left in the distant past.

With the help of a decent EHR, you won’t lose test results and all of your practitioners will have a full understanding of each patient’s journey even if they’ve never met.

Everything you could possibly need to improve your practice’s reporting is available at the click of a button.

Flexible Online Appointment Booking

Practice receptionists are often overwhelmed with work, making it easy to forget simple details like where to send a patient for their appointment. This problem can be resolved rather simply by means of integrated online appointment booking.

By using our patient CRM for your medical practice, you can empower your patients to select their prefered time, date, location, and even practitioner through our online booking portal. This is the quickest way to ensure that you lose as few prospective patients as possible to other clinics.

Cashback

A welcome bonus for your patients. Now you can return money to a patient’s account balance in the form of a cashback payment. This is an excellent tool to boost patient retention and ensure their loyalty.

Employ Our Clinic CRM Software to Manage Your Patients

  • Leverage online booking to pre-screen your patients
  • Send out automated yet bespoke confirmations and reminders by email and SMS
  • Remind patients of the value of attending their appointments with tailored information

The best booking system if you have more than one employee. The support provided was great. Platform offers a bunch of customised features. Could be not as competitive as other similar products however, does offer more overall.
