This article talks specifically about cases where Doctors want to send Bulk SMS updates to patients. The picture below highlights some of these use cases.
Case 1: Doctor Not available in the Clinic
This is the most common use case. Doctors often have to go to medical conferences or go on vacations. Patients end up visiting clinics in these times. This type of SMS helps Doctors to inform patients beforehand regarding their unavailability.
Case 2: Visiting Doctor available in Clinic / Hospital on a particular day
Many Hospitals have specialists visiting them on certain days in a month. Many Doctors themselves visit different cities for their personal OPD consultations. This type of SMS can be used to inform patients about the availability of visiting Doctors. Patients can call the appointment number in SMS so that the appointments are lined up before the Doctor visits.
Case 3: Update to Clinic Timings
Lockdowns have now become realities. In such cases, there could be changes to the timing for which clinic operates. Inform patients of the change in your clinic timings. However, usually, this case is not that often compared to the 2 other cases mentioned above.
Case 4: Change in clinic address
This is a rare scenario. However, when it happens, you would need this feature the most. Informing patients about the new location via SMS is in the best interest of the Doctor as well as the patient.
MyOPD Software allows you to send such SMS to your patients at a click of a button. Improved patient care in terms of service from the clinic is a need of the hour as well. MyOPD helps you in this aspect of your practice as well.

Is there such a thing as a best month to start using an EMR or a clinic management software?
Our analysis shows that March is the best month to get started with using clinic software.
Here are 3 reasons why we think March is the best month to start using Clinic Software in your practice.
Reason # 1: Using a new technology when clinic load is less
Traditionally, the Summer months are the months in which people are less sick. As a result, the load in the clinics is less during the months of Summer. In India, the Summer typically starts from March and goes on till mid June. So using this criteria, we could select any of these months, say March, April, May or June to get started. Then why March is still the best?
Reason # 2: Learning time window
When you purchase the clinic software in March, you and your team gets a good 2 months on the software with less loaded clinic. It helps a lot as the team in clinic gets familiar with various features of the software with the help of training and support from the vendor. May and June do not offer that opportunity as there is a rise in patient numbers once the rainy season starts in June. April is still in the race, however, it falls out on the next selection criteria.
Reason # 3: Accounting Year
In India, the financial year starts from April and ends in March. Clinics and Hospitals need to know the counts of patients or billing details during the financial year period. Starting in March allows you to start capturing data from April. If you start in April or May, you may lose the initial set of data which need to be a part of the report.
The same logic of getting started with a clinic software is also applicable for Hospital Software.
Finally, if you are not reading this in March, don’t wait for the next March to come.
Remember the proverb: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.
MyOPD’s Clinic Software for Doctors includes EMR, Billing and so on.

Covid 19 Certificate Generation: MyOPD now allows Doctors to give Covid-19 certificate to patients. This additional option is present under the regular Medical Certificate option.
Referral Return Note: Like a referral note which Doctors write to refer a patient to another Doctor, the Thank you note allows Doctors to send a Thank you to the referring Doctor. Doctor can communicate about the status of the referred patient to the referring Doctor. Doctors can give this note to the Patient who takes it back to the referring Doctor.
Lab Requisition Note: Lab requisition note allows Doctors to specifically print the investigations such as Lab / X-Ray / Ultrasound to be done along with the laboratory name and address. This allows patients to locate the lab easily and specifically handover the lab requisition note to the Lab without handing over the Prescription.
On Demand Online Backup: Earlier versions of MyOPD backed up data only after a 24 hour interval. This caused issues when Doctors had to urgently change PCs or their hardware engineers wanted to do format. Now, Doctors can take an online backup of data at any time, whenever they want, at a click of a button increasing the frequency of backups.
Patient Name Titles: Allow Patient name titles like Mr / Mrs / Miss / Mast and print them on Rx.
Print Charts on Rx: Patient’s charts for Blood Pressure, HBA1C, BSL, Sr. Creatinine etc based on latest values entered in the software can be printed on Rx. This helps patients to stick to the medicines once they know that the condition is in control based on the medicines given. See sample prescription at https://www.myopd.in/blog/sample-prescriptions-documents/
Online Payments and Teleconsultation Booking Feature: Doctors can now accept payments from their patients by sharing a payment link with them. Patients pay using Debit Card / Credit Card / Net Banking. Patients can also book teleconsultation appointments with Doctors.
Improved Medicine Inventory & Reporting of medicines used: Better reports generated for used medicines.
Capture Payment Methods: Reception staff can now capture payment methods like UPI / Debit Card / Credit Card. The same is reflected in the improved reporting of Income and Expenses in the software.
Print Token Number on Visit Paper: Patient’s number in Queue can now be printed on the Visit paper. This helps to identify the patient when the Reception staff calls out the number for next patient.
Online Payment from Reception: Patients can pay using Debit Card / Credit Card etc by receiving a payment link. Reception can ask the patient to pay using the received link on mobile phone.

Creating an E Prescription quickly is one of the most important functionalities of any clinic management software. In this article, we will see how Doctors can save time while creating an E Prescription using MyOPD Clinic Management Software.
1. Reuse Previous Doses
When a medicine is prescribed, over a period of time, there are set doses using which it can be issued. Like BD, TDS and so on. When you start using MyOPD Software, MyOPD remembers your previous doses for the medicine. You can simply reuse the medicine along with its entire dose to avoid re-entering it all over again.
Below figure explains this technique:
2. Copy Previous Rx
Copy Previous Rx method is especially useful in case of Chronic Patients. In such cases, the entire Rx from previous visit has to be repeated with minor modifications. MyOPD Software allows to repeat the previous visit Rx in one click. Doctors can then make certain changes like
Deleting a medicine that is no more required
Replacing a medicine that doesn’t suit with another one
Adding more medicines to the list of already existing medicines
Below figure explains this technique:
3. Medicine Templates
At times, certain medical conditions / Diagnosis have fixed treatment plans. MyOPD allows Doctors to define medicine templates linked with Diagnosis so that they can be used to enter quickly. This allows entry of entire medicine list, which may contain say 5 or 10 medicines, in a couple of clicks. This saves immense time because the medicines need not be entered one after the another, one by one.
Below figure explains this technique:
4. Selectively use previous medicines from past Rx
At times, there is a case where Doctors have to repeat selectively medicines given in the past visits. MyOPD allows Doctors to view all such medicines in one view and select them as required.
The entire medicine along with its dose is copied so that the Doctor does not have to keep entering it all over again.
Below figure explains this technique:
How long does it take to create an E-Prescription?
Now that we know all the techniques used by the Doctors while operating MyOPD Clinic Software, how long does it really take to create a single E Prescription?
There is an initial effort involved. In the initial stage, when the medicine list is not setup up and the doses are not added, the time taken will be more.
For a Doctor who has added all medicines and medicine doses in the software, it takes roughly 3.5 minutes to create an entire prescription. It is that simple.
