From the March 2022 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

When a practice goes paperless, it liberates staff from stacks of paperwork, ultimately freeing up time, increasing productivity, and improving patient satisfaction, all of which may help grow the profitability of the practice. For example, Dr. Kathy Karamlou, a rheumatology practice owner in California, estimates the practice was able to save more than 500 hours a year on admin tasks by implementing solutions such as electronic fax, electronic forms and patient reminders, enabling staff to focus on more important initiatives and spend more quality time engaging with patients.

Now more than ever with supply chain shortages causing additional strain on the healthcare industry, adopting new technology is key to increasing efficiency and sustaining a successful practice in 2022.
