If you run a health or medical practice, you’ll know how tricky it is to find a practice management system that can effectively manage all of the different streams of your business. From making appointments and writing treatment notes, to sending patient letters, managing your accounts and even reporting, there are so many things to think about every day.
When it comes to practice management software for your health business, we love Cliniko. It has fantastic features and integrations which we think will make your practice management a whole lot easier. Whether you’re a doctor, dentist, physiotherapist, chiropractor, psychologist, personal trainer, or anything else health care related, Cliniko is perfect for you.
Cliniko is a web-based practice management system so you can use it wherever you have an internet connection. You can also download the app, which is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone, so even if you’re on the road, your clinic schedule and patient data is always available.
You can easily view just your individual schedule or the schedule for all your practitioners. If you have more than one clinic, you can also use it to manage all your locations from just the one login. Simply pick your location from the drop down menu and you’ll be able to switch between views.
Let’s take a look at some of Cliniko’s awesome features.
Booking appointments has never been easier. You can create appointments for new or existing patients so easily. If it’s an existing patient, simply search and add them to the appointment. If it’s a new patient, as you enter their details for the appointment, it automatically creates a new patient record – how great is that? No more double entry, it’s all done at the same time.
There’s also the facility to create group appointments – this is a really useful feature for people like personal trainers who do group training sessions or psychologists who do couple’s counselling.
Allowing your patients to set their own appointments can take some of the pressure off your staff and allows your patients much more flexibility, as they can easily see what slots are available and work out when would suit them.
Writing treatment notes can be time consuming. That’s why Cliniko has created fully customisable treatment note templates. You can set these up and configure them to suit your processes and commonly used notes, saving heaps of time writing up your notes.
All treatment notes are completely secure to ensure you abide by legal requirements around patient records, and are accessible whatever device you are using.
Like the treatment notes, the letters feature in Cliniko allows you to set up your own letter templates – referral letters, patient updates and any other communication you need to use. You can choose whether you want to print or email your letters as a PDF attachment, right from Cliniko.
Getting paid is always a hassle, no matter what kind of business you run. That’s why Cliniko has made sure you’re able to easily create invoices and collect payments. You can set up your products or services and are able to edit the prices on individual invoices if needed too.
There is also an expense tracking feature so you can manage all your clinic expenses, from monthly bills to a coffee with your bookkeeper.
Having the ability run reports from Cliniko allows you to easily gather data about your business so you can find out what’s working well and what could be improved. Plus your accountant and bookkeeper will love you come tax time!
