What Is Medical Scheduling Software?

Glossary

Medical scheduling software is part of the trend you’re seeing toward automation and integrating your healthcare devices with your healthcare management systems. The scheduling process is essential, particularly when you consider the estimated $150 billion cost that practices incur every year because of missed medical appointments.

Medical scheduling software is designed to make the process of scheduling your patients’ appointments more accessible and streamlined. With the level of digital integration now available, you can easily coordinate the availability of your healthcare providers with the time slots when patients can schedule their appointments.

What Are the Benefits of Medical Scheduling Software?

Medical scheduling software offers a range of benefits to your practice. Of course, scheduling software represents cost savings for your practice, but it’s also essential for your patients. Some 80 percent of patients say they prefer to schedule their appointments via a secure online portal, but you still may not be able to offer that service. Here are a few of the benefits.

  • It allows for your staff to more easily manage the scheduling process.
  • It automates more of the scheduling process, which reduces staff time.
  • It fills up your appointment gaps, so you’re more efficient with the time of your doctors and staff.
  • It improves the billing process with fewer errors and more billable time.
  • It makes the entire patient experience better.
  • It saves time for your administration, patients, doctors, and staff.
  • It supports efficient administration.
