What’s In It For ME?

For People

Here’s the deal …

YOUR time is YOUR money.

Why waste it on repetitive time sinks?

Being asked to complete a paper form is a waste of your time. Especially if you have completed that very same form countless times before.

Every form should be a fill-able PDF. The data you carry in your cell phone should be able to fill that form with little effort from you. That is how things should work.

With Practice Today, your data is always ready. You are only ten seconds away from a completed form using a DestinationID.

Insist upon using a DestinationID.

Remember, it’s YOUR time … it’s YOUR money.

If you hand your patient a clipboard with a paper form, how much is it really costing you?

Your clipboard is costing you TWICE its weight in GOLD every year.

I am not talking about the paper forms on it, I am talking about the human resources that come with it.

Consider the following workflow for new patient registration:

Someone has to:

  • order the paper,
  • stock the paper in the closet,
  • load the paper in the printer,
  • print the forms,
  • load the clipboard,
  • hand the clipboard to the patient,
  • retrieve the clipboard from the patient,
  • then type the information in to your Office Management Software System.

Please remember, you use clipboards for more than just NEW patients. You use them for returning patients as well. You use them to collect changes in their medical history, even insurance info. The list goes on.

Both the clipboard and the tablet require a human “assist”. A person sitting behind the counter must at least hand the patient the clipboard or tablet and retrieve it when done. The information does not leap into the computer on its own.

Let us say you are paying the front desk person $20 per hour. The following simple tasks would take about five minutes:

Method A – clipboard and paper form:

  • print the form,
  • load the clipboard,
  • hand the clipboard to the patient,
  • retrieve the clipboard from the patient,
  • type the new information into your Office Management Software System.

Method B – electronic tablet

  • prepare the tablet to receive new patient information
  • hand the tablet to the patient,
  • keep your eye on the tablet so it does not walk out the door
  • retrieve the tablet from the patient
  • instruct your Office Management Software System to integrate the new information

Either method requires at least five minutes of time from a human being.

Five minutes at $20 per hour, would cost you about $1.67 for each patient encounter.

If you see 40 patients per day, that task would total $66.67 per day.

Multiply this by five days per week, and fifty-two weeks per year.

The simple task of using a clipboard or tablet to collect patient information is costing you $17,368 per year. Let me repeat that, $17,368 per year. This is just for your staff’s time, without including the cost of the electronic tablets, paper, printer ink, pens, and clipboards.

Think about what this means.

A clipboard weighs about five ounces.

The price for an ounce of gold on 6/28/2020 was $1,783.80

The clipboard’s weight in gold would cost you $8,919.

The human resources needed to service the clipboard cost you $17,368.

You are paying TWICE the clipboard’s weight in GOLD just to use it.
