New technologies are constantly being created for the health field. When it comes to attendance and schedulings in health clinics, it has gotten easier to do a good job and optimize time by using a good health software.
Even with the technology working at our side, many clinics and health care establishments are still working with obsolete methods, be it the paper journal or the endless patients' archives in storage rooms.
A health software allows you to do many tasks faster and safer, and for that, we list some quite common problems in clinics that do not have management software.
Errors in making decisions
Making decisions in a company requires great caution, it being connected to the health systems or not. For that, the first step is having the correct information at hand so it can be used in your favor. By having a good health software, those data are easily found, which wouldn't happen if a management system is not used.
Let's take the Apolo Ninsaúde's software as an example. In this system,
it's possible to generate charts and reports having not only the patients' and health professionals' data but also of all clinics in general, like, services that are more scheduled and more profitable, the seasonality of schedules, most busy hours and others.
Difficulties in the clinic's management
Acting in the made decision and delegating tasks can look easy to an outsider, but the clinic administrator needs to be well prepared to deal with daily challenges.
Again, the software can help in this mission, and not only with reports and charts that allow you to identify errors but also with features that automate tasks and optimize time, as in schedulings and as in financials.
In a big and busy clinic, it is grand the number of paperwork that professionals, secretaries, and administrators have to deal with daily: patients' documents, register files, reports, etc. Imagine now all these documents out of order at the moment you most need them. In this scenario, whoever has a software doesn't need to worry, after all, everything you need is in one place, so the work is organized and you have freer physical space at the clinic.
Loss of medical records
By law, the medical records in Brazil must be saved for at least twenty years from the date of the last attendance. Being this way, through this period of time the health clinic and professionals are responsible for the correct storage and availability for the patients, whenever they need it. Now imagine that in the middle of so many papers, a record ends up being lost or that any accident happens to it. This situation would be extremely complicated, however, it is not a problem if all records are in one place, as an online system like Ninsaúde's Apolo software, where they can access when and anywhere they're needed.
