Choosing the Right Hospital Software or Clinic Software

Choosing the Right Hospital Software or Clinic Software can be a tricky task.

There are many thoughts Doctors have in mind about their practice:

  1. I’m comfortable practicing on a PC / Laptop
  2. I am looking for a Basic Clinic / OPD Version. No IPD / Hospital version required.
  3. I’m comfortable practicing on my Android Phone / Tablet or iPAD
  4. Can we both, husband and wife practice using the same software?
  5. Can I practice along with other Doctors in the clinic? Are there extra charges for this?
  6. Will this same version work for my Hospital?
  7. Will this same software work on Laptop as well as mobile?

Such thoughts can leave you confused

Do I really need Product Support?

Many Doctors have doubts in their mind about product support. Based on our years of product support, since 2012, we have compiled a list of common support call requests.

Here are top 5 reasons for having product support:

  1. Handling computer updates and Change of computers:

  2. First there was Windows XP then came Windows 7 then Windows 8 then Windows 8.1 and now Windows 10. Usually software updates from vendors take care of changes in operating system. However, support teams take care of smoothly transitioning you from one OS to another so that you can focus on your work. This is the top most reason we have seen for our customer support.

  3. Computer Crash and Format of computer:

  4. Computer crashes happen randomly. These can be because of issues with operating system upgrades, faulty hardware and so on. Our teams handles such issues so that Doctors can focus on their work while we make sure their software works fine. This is the 2nd most reason for which we get support requests.

  5. Teach me how to use a particular feature:

  6. This is the 3rd top reason we receive requests for. You keep on using the software on a regular basis. Then you want to start using a new feature present in software. Say for e.g: Contactless Payments. The support team explains you the feature so that you can start using it.

  7. Feature not working as expected:

  8. There are situations where things don’t work as expected. In such cases, you need a team to hear your concern and address it. MyOPD Support team talks to Doctors, understands their concerns an provides resolution so that they can move on and keep using software effectively.

  9. Suggesting new Ideas that come to your mind:

  10. In changing world, as you keep on practicing, you get new ideas to be done via software. MyOPD has a way to collect these ideas and implement them in software. To give example: During the COVID Pandemic initial stage of lockdown, we introduced WhatsApp Share feature. This allowed clients to share a PDF Rx via WhatsApp so that patients can get their prescriptions directly on phone, via WhatsApp.

With MyOPD, you have a team which is dedicated to support the product while you keep practicing with peace of mind. MyOPD’s product support plan is like insurance, you may not need it always. More so, it is better to not need it at all. However, if there is a need, you better be covered!

    Practice Management Software is becoming all the more important now!

    Sthetoscope

    Dunbar’s number says that Humans can comfortably remember 150 stable relationships

    This simply means, when your patient count goes above 150, it becomes all the more difficult to remember the patients and their medical histories.

    Gone are the days when Doctors would see a patient, write a prescription and forget about it. Welcome to a new world where Disease Management along with Record keeping become the key.

    We are going to give you 3 Examples where a Practice Management Software will work better than manual record keeping.

    Example # 1: COVID-19 and how will the Practice Management Software Help

    Let’s take a case of COVID-19 also known as the Novel Coronavirus. Administrative agencies are increasingly trying to identify people who have come in contact with patients who have tested positive.

    Usually, when any person has a medical issue, the person would first visit a General Practitioner or a Family Physician. It becomes important to understand which other patients were treated by the Doctor during the same time in the clinic.

    If the Doctor has no good way of keeping records, finding such cases becomes increasingly difficult. As seen in case of COVID-19, time is of supreme importance.

    Doctors who are using some form of Practice Management software or record keeping are doing a great favor to the community in general.

    Example # 2: Understanding trends of Blood Pressure, BSL, HBA1C, Sr. Creatinine and so on…

    You may be a Infectious Diseases Practitioner or a Diabetologist or a Cardiologist or a Nephrologist. One thing you surely have to agree on is the more data you have about the patient, you can treat the patient better.

    What if you simply see the trend charts of the patient’s Blood Pressure levels or HBA1C or Sr. Creatinine, you know how the patient is doing in general. Isn’t it a better way to treat the patient as opposed to gut feeling and based on only today’s Blood Pressure Level or HBA1C and so on?

    You may say, we still see previous values by looking at past reports given by patient. Well true, however, this involves multiple steps:

    1. The patient or you have all the reports at the time of consultation
    2. You run through those reports to find Sr. Creatinine or HBA1C and mentally create a chart
    3. Then you infer based on these values that you see for multiple patients, multiple times in a day.

    This approach is certainly error prone because a reading could be missed, or you could simply be tired to do these 3 steps everyday for every patient. And yes, Doctors see a lot of patients in a day.

    How about you see a nice chart at a click of a button showing you all the previous readings? Isn’t that going to relieve of the unnecessary work and let you focus more on giving the right advice to the patient?

    Give it a thought.

    Example # 3: Automate repetitive tasks

    The entire reason to use a software is to automate repetitive tasks.

    Let’s say you have to write the advice for URTI:

    1. Avoid eating oily and Fried food
    2. Gargle twice a day with warm water and pinch of salt
    3. Drink warm water during the day.

    Now, to every patient who have URTI, you have to write these 3 things over and over. Isn’t that boring? Further, if the patient is speaking another language, you got to translate that and write it for him. And yes, that is possible only if you know the patient’s language.

    Instead, why not just feed this in software once and let the software Print it for you over and over again in any language you want to give? That is the power of software.

    Using a Practice Management Software makes life simpler for Doctors and patients alike. You still got to learn how to operate it. It is just like learning to drive a vehicle for the first time.

    All you need is a will to change and practice in a different way!
