e-MDs Schedule: Fast, Flexible, Easy to Use Scheduler for Increasing Productivity
e-MDs Schedule is a full-featured appointments system that will support your preferences, workflow, patient service goals, and have a positive impact on your revenue cycle. Suitable for a single location clinic, or large, widely dispersed multi-location enterprises with centralized or decentralized scheduling, Schedule makes it easy to manage appointments for your patients and clinical staff. Best of all it is fully integrated with all aspects of e-MDs' billing, EHR, and document management components. It even synchronizes automatically with e-MDs' Rounds mobile solution so your doctors can easily see their schedules. Best of all, the e-MDs Patient Portal also enhances the patient experience while improving operational efficiencies related to scheduling and confirmations.
Why e-MDs Schedule?
- Supports optimal clinic workflow
- Integral to clinical quality and patient satisfaction
- Helps practices understand scheduling patterns and availability
- Comprehensive tool set of appointment-related functions
Long waits and frustrated patients are a thing of the past. e-MDs Schedule optimizes patient booking density and load balancing by giving users the ability to create custom schedules. Different doctors and resources can have their own schedules and even have different ones for different days of the week with the ability to quickly change them such as when seasons change patient demand. Color coded visit types and patients guide staff to select the right patients for the right times, and help them understand the types of patients you’re seeing. Visit reasons can even be specialty specific to ensure staff don’t schedule patients for the wrong staff.
Simplified daily scheduling tasks
Multiple office staff can simultaneously access schedules. Scheduling for providers, hospital rounds, equipment, and services at multiple locations is as easy as point-and-click. Automated warnings and messages ensure attention is paid to billing issues and other special situations when making appointments. Copy functions for rescheduling and follow-up visits are fast and easy. More complex needs are supported by advanced scheduling capabilities that include the ability to quickly find multiple slots for repeat appointments, or even schedule multiple resources depending upon requirements such as concurrency. You can even set up visit reasons to require preset intervals, staff and locations to help scheduling staff and eliminate sticky notes pasted onto computers and desks!
Comprehensive no show and cancellation management
Having a problem with no shows? No problem. e-MDs tells staff which patients may be problems so they can follow your office protocols with positive effects on revenue and patient satisfaction. For example, you can follow up on no shows (meeting medical home criteria) and note if patients need assistance to get to your clinic. Cancelled appointments can be filled directly from a sorted wait list and if you had to cancel due to a doctor being unavailable, the system notifies the patient the next time so you can be extra accommodating.
Drives clinical intake and revenue cycle
Mini triage notes prompt the scheduler to ask important questions when schedule. Views of clinical reminders can help staff schedule more than one appointment, or increase the duration of a visit to accommodate these needs. Patient appointment instructions can help prepare patients so that they know about copayment and other policies in advance. A single screen check in window with customizable check in tasks makes it easy to verify and update information, collect copayments and outstanding balances, and get practice administration and clinical history forms completed.
Improved data analysis and time management
Reporting capabilities include no-show and cancellation tracking, appointment histories, user productivity, reminders, wait lists and more. e-MDs Schedule tracks the time it takes for patients to move through the clinic. Reports allow management to analyze these statistics to identify areas needing improvement so that you can maximize the use of reimbursable resources and improve patient satisfaction.
Better security and compliance
User defined, role-based security groups control access to different functions. View options ensure protected information is more secure, while audit trails track user's access to patient information and appointments.
