Running an allied health clinic, taking care of clients and keeping your records and bookkeeping up to date is a huge task. One of the smartest decisions a clinic owner can make is going paperless.
Not only is this decision great for the environment, it’s a solution that will pay off in the long term in cost and security.
Record management of health data is a liability that allied health practitioners take responsibility for. Finding a clinic management system that holds your client data in a secure and encrypted format reduces your risk and increases your ability to meet industry standards of data security.
Keeping electronic treatment notes that are secure and accessible from any device, officially makes your practice ready for an insurance or tax audit at any time. It also allows you to streamline your paperwork, maintain accurate client files and even expand your career if you move into research.
With digital intake forms, treatment notes and charts, you can sleep better at night knowing if anything happened to your office, your entire practice would be ready to open a new location almost immediately without any lost data. It also facilitates the process if you ever sell your business or transfer your client files to another practitioner.
Maintaining, storing and transferring patient records when they are digital is much easier as you can quickly secure hosting for past files, and keep that location registered with your association for minimal cost.
Here’s how to create your secure, encrypted treatment notes and charts in Yocale
