Running a practice takes a lot of time. In an effort to keep your focus on your patients we’ve come up with a few time saving tips to help you stay on track.
- Use templates for standard documentation. You can just substitute any changes. This is especially useful when you are doing documentation online.
- Labs: I’ve found this particularly help. I have a lab results sheet that has the most commonly asked about results and tells what the numbers means. For examples, the lipid profile and diabetes labs. On the flip side of the page, it has tips that patients can use to correct their lipids and glucose. It includes space for me to include other labs and instructions.
- We have a referral phone list for the most common providers we refer to. Its bright orange. Patients get a copy of it with the phone number circled. It saves lots of calls to our office.
