We have already seen “What is a Clinic Management System?”
Many Doctors prefer to writing a prescription vs using software. However, there are clear advantages that you gain over time and keep once you master using the software. In this article we explain the 5 advantages of using Clinic Management System with the help of a simple prescription printed using MyOPD.
Advantage #1: Patient details and Address
How many times is the Doctor required to ask the age of the patient, when the patient revisits? Just once while registering the patient. Then, the software automatically shows the current age no matter the patient visits after 1 years or 5 years.
See the image below.
- Date and Time is auto filled
- Patient Name, Age, Gender, Phone Number is all automatically filled up on the Rx. Software calculates the current age and prints that no matter when the patient visits.
- Address of the patient once set is included on Rx for accurate patient identification.
- In addition, MyOPD also allows printing of patient photo on Rx in case you want to do so.
Advantage #2: Fast Medicine Entry
Cleary write medicine name along with generic composition if required. With options to repeat the who Rx in a few clicks, software driven medicine entry will easily beat hand written medicine entry on prescription.
Advantage #3: Use of Investigation Templates
Group various investigations in templates like Diabetic Profile, Kidney Profile and so on…
For example, let’s say Doctor wants to add following tests as Diabetic Profile
- BSL Fasting and PP
- Lipid Profile
- Sr. Creatinine
With one click, Doctor can include all these on the Rx for the patient. MyOPD further also allows to print the trend chart of the values of these on the Rx for better patient compliance to the treatment.
Advantage #4: Never forget an instruction / advice
Every prescription always contains dos and don’ts for the patient. These advices are usually included in the advice section. When there are 10 such things to be told to the patient, imagine writing them every time for every patient. It is such a monotonous task. With MyOPD you can simply include them all in one go using advice templates.
Advantage #5: Systematic Practice one prescription at a time
Discipline is a the key in every facet of life. In addition to allowing Doctors to print Charts & barcodes on Prescription, allowing to print Prescription in multiple languages and make the prescription as informative for the patient, a software driven way instills discipline.
If a follow-up is required, the follow-up date is clearly specified on the Rx. Patient can also get an automated SMS reminder. Helps Doctors to take the service to the next level.
This discipline goes a long way in helping Doctors practice better and manage a clinic with the help of software and handle other aspects of clinic like Billing, Reviews, SMS reminders and so on.
By creating one prescription at a time in MyOPD, Doctors using MyOPD Clinic Management System have created thousands and thousands of Prescriptions.
