A medical scheduling system is a digital solution that enables healthcare organizations to manage appointments and bookings. Patients can use such software to look up available time slots for a doctor’s appointment and book one through a website or mobile application. At the healthcare providers‘ end, medical scheduling solutions are used to manage appointments, and schedule tests, scans, and other procedures for patients. It streamlines all scheduling workflows and eases hospitals’ and clinics’ administrative burdens. Thanks to innovations in healthcare interoperability, medical scheduling software can be integrated with other medical systems for the simplified day-to-day management of operations.
The larger a healthcare organization gets, the more patients it needs to handle. Subsequently, the growing number of patients would also demand a means of managing physician schedules. In light of this, software for medical scheduling for hospitals helps the staff to check appointment status, identify follow-ups or first-time visits, track cancellations, handle rescheduling, and so on. OSP can build medical scheduling software with such features for large hospitals and smaller clinics.
It benefits patients and providers by streamlining all activities around appointments and even helps with healthcare management. Additionally, such platforms also reduce operating overhead.
Multiple studies and research have found that missed appointments are one of the biggest reasons for the worsening of diseases. This problem is especially true in the case of chronic diseases. But OSP can design and develop medical appointment scheduling solutions that include a feature for automated appointment reminders. We leverage healthcare automation modules to enable administrative staff to schedule reminders for patients before their appointments. These are usually in the form of text messages or mobile app notifications. As an added benefit, when patients receive alerts of approaching appointments, they are more likely to take them seriously. In other words, this feature acts as a patient engagement system.
All medical consultations are preceded by verification of patients’ health plans to know if they are covered. But a manual verification process after patients enters the clinic can take time and result in longer wait times for the patients. But OSP can build a custom medical scheduling system that will enable the staff to verify insurance with a few clicks on a screen. This would not only reduce the wait times for patients but also prevent any chances of treatments not being covered by health plans.
Moreover, we can also develop custom APIs to incorporate this solution within practice management software with seamless electronic data exchange between the two platforms.
A patient portal is a secure website that provides people with access to their personal health information 24/7. This includes test results, recent consultations, discharge summaries, etc. Moreover, patients can also communicate with their physician for clarifications, request prescription refills, check coverage, and so on. OSP can develop a medical appointment scheduling platform with a patient portal incorporated within it for improved doctor-patient engagement. It is just like patients’ electronic health records and helps people know their health status better.
Our HIPAA-compliant medical billing and scheduling solutions are compatible with Android, iOS, and Windows platforms. Since patients can view their health information, so it engenders better management of medical records.
Large hospitals and clinics can streamline their administrative operations when multiple healthcare software can work seamlessly together. This eventually trickles down to improving the quality of care and the overall patient experience. OSP can build customized medical scheduling software according to the needs of an organization and include APIs for easy integration with other medical applications. A comprehensive health system enables clinical and non-clinical staff to carry out everyday workflows with greater speed and efficiency.
The integration allows hospitals to leverage the benefits of medical informatics and healthcare analytics solutions. These offer actionable insights into clinical and administrative activities and facilitate informed decision-making.
A hospital or a medium-sized ambulatory care center is bound to have multiple physicians with varying specialties. It is not uncommon for some physicians to go on vacation, get pulled into emergency procedures, or get held up with other cases. In light of this, the availability of physicians must reflect the appointment scheduling process, and the patient must know if their treating doctor might be available for a follow-up. OSP’s medical scheduling software allows clinical staff to make changes to their end of the scheduling solution. This feature helps patients look up their physicians and make appointments accordingly without having to cancel or reschedule at the last minute.
Without medical scheduling software, the staff at hospitals and clinics would have to do things manually with pen and paper. This is slow and error-prone, and cumbersome since patients would need to call for scheduling and rescheduling. But OSP's medical software for scheduling digitizes all the activities around appointments and allows patients and medical staff to do things with a few clicks.
The advantage of using a digital platform for medical scheduling is that it can offer insights into appointments and consultations. Administrators at hospitals can use such a platform to know which physicians are preferred, who has higher patient loyalty, which doctors are least consulted, and any other problems with consultations. Such insight enables senior managers and doctors to take the necessary steps to improve performance and serve patients better.
Missed appointments are considered one of the major reasons for the deterioration of health, especially among seniors and people with chronic diseases. But software for medical appointment scheduling offers features like rescheduling and automatic reminders. This has been shown to reduce appointment misses significantly. Moreover, since such platforms form components of integrated care solutions, patients can follow up with multiple physicians during their care journey.
