Every day your medical office fills dozens, if not hundreds of patient appointments. Even if you are generally regarded as a walk-in office, chances are you are still scheduling regular check-ups and follow-up visits.
Appointments in the medical office are so important because they are your client’s only resource for using your services. Without proper scheduling, your clinic will quickly become a chaotic, unorganized mess. This raises stress not only for your staff, but your clientele as well.
How to Effectively Scheduling and Manage Patient Appointments
Here are 5 tips on how to keep your medical appointments organized:
- Offer your patients time-slot options when scheduling the appointment.
- If the appointment was made in person, give your patient a reminder card.
- If the appointment was made well in advance, send reminders via mail or email near the appointment date.
- Consider making phone calls to confirm the day before or day of the appointment.
- Upgrade any manual appointment books to browser-based software.
With online scheduling you can better organize your patient appointment schedules, send appointment reminders, and notify your patients automatically of schedule changes.
