Defining Best Practices
Operating with cohesive systems & technology to support evidence-based medical expertise. Minimizing variation in service processes to reduce admin/clinical burdens. Staying committed to individualized care that drives measurable results.

Integrating Traditional Systems & Modern Technology
It is vital to learn from traditional care systems and to take what is useful from them, but this must be in the context of modern technologies. Healthcare technology is advancing at an exponential rate, meaning that it is now essential for providers to use the latest software, devices & web systems. That is the only way to remain competitive in today’s market.
Decision-making in this realm can certainly be overwhelming, but with the right approach, implementing newer technologies should uphold care philosophy and enhance admin/clinical procedures.
All of this begins with shopping for appropriate internal solutions.
Web & Software Considerations For Healthcare Providers
Type of Care Specialty/Delivery System, How Many Facilities/Locations, How Many Providers/Subspecialties, Marketing Accommodations (Patient Leads), Existing Devices & Systems Buildout, Current Web Infrastructure, Intake & Scheduling Functionalities, E-Script Solutions, E-Form Platforms, Patient Portal Access, Demographics & Data Migrations, Insurance Billing vs Self/Private Pay (Payer Mix), Total Number of Admins/Users (+Permissions), Implementation & Personnel Training Forecast
Generally speaking, subscribing to proper software services will range in pricing from anywhere between $250-$750/mo per clinician.
This price range may be adjusted in favor of the healthcare provider when factoring in economies of scale at larger practices/facilities. But up charges are also fairly typical when it comes to Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), Provider Credentialing, Insurance Claims Submissions, & Outsourced Patient Collections. After addressing the above web & software landscape, the name of the game is seamless systems integrations and deliberate process automation.
Provider Tip: There can be a bit of a learning curve here if building and/or managing these optimizations in-house. And it is also important for web & software systems to complement hardware (devices). Certain device manufacturers offer built-in or readily integrated software programs, but providers need to consider how such offerings realistically fit within the practice/facility’s overall admin/clinical operations.
Simplify Stages Of Care

Care stages help to standardize processes and to optimize tx outcomes.
And it is useful to differentiate sequences of service visually because it helps to identify workflow issues - in case any outdated practices and/or methodologies are in place but tough to adjust on the front lines.
One of the biggest challenges across healthcare is figuring out how to standardize an organization’s systems & services while maintaining premium care quality for personalized consumer experiences.
