Going paperless seems like a classic no-brainer for any Clinic or business at first glance. Anything that can save you time and money has to be good, doesn’t it? Yet despite this, many Clinics still feel reluctant to let go of their tried and tested paper-based systems and fully embrace their digital transformation.

A Patient Portal is a key weapon in any modern Clinic’s armoury for patient engagement and retention, business growth and efficiency. A well designed Portal will make your day to day patient management easier and streamline business functions across your team.
Digital signing of documents was already growing in popularity before 2020 came along and brought Covid, lockdowns, and remote working into all of our lives. Since then, digital signing has accelerated even faster to become an established part of business life.
Patient Portals have become a feature of Practice Management Software in recent years, with many suppliers offering versions of them to their customers. Since 2020 and the impact of COVID on patient behaviour, a Patient Portal has become a core essential of any clinic’s offer to its patients.
We are all now familiar with the term Cloud computing, or being on the Cloud, but many clinicians and business owners are often still not fully aware of what that actually means, or the real advantages that Cloud delivers for them.
Of all of the technological innovations in recent years, digital signatures can be one of the hardest to really understand. How can a scrawl on a e-pad or a computer generated signature replicate what we have come to understand as legally binding signatures?
If you are looking at Practice Management Software then you are almost certainly looking at an online Portal too.
Online engagement is a must for your patients
Online engagement of customers is essential for any modern business to grow. For the clinical and dental sector this is even more of an issue. Once they have joined a practice, patients are not generally casual shoppers, but clients with whom we develop a relationship that will ideally last for years and grow to include entire families.
Prepared? You should be!
Most practices have been digital for some time now, but not all digital solutions are the same. Unless you have a Cloud-based practice management solution which allows you to access every aspect of your business – from a patient’s entire clinical history; your ADY by practice or treatment; treatment plan uptake; cashflow breakdown; or an analysis of your appointment book performance – then you cannot really control or direct your Practice remotely.
