How Dr. Pravin Mukane uses MyOPD to collect client payments?
There are times when we, as designers of MyOPD, are pleasantly surprised in the way the product gets used in a way differently than it was intended to. This is good as long as the end result is positive for everyone.
We would like to share with you one such story of our existing client – Dr. Pravin Mukane
Dr. Mukane shared with us a prescription he designed using MyOPD. Instead of the usual place to print clinic’s logo, he added his UPI payment QR code as seen in the image above (UPI payment system is applicable for India only).
One of the most important decision while running a Hospital is choosing the correct Hospital Software.
Below are the 5 points you should consider to choose the right Hospital Software.
Hospitals are of varying sizes
Hospitals range from 5 Beds to 1000 Beds. A Hospital Software developed for a 1000 bedded Hospital will not suit a 5 bedded Hospital. Why? Well, apart from just the cost factor, the requirements of a 1000 bedded Hospital are vast compared to that of a 5 bedded Hospital. Plus, the staff who operates that software in case of a 1000 bedded hospital is vastly different in skills compared to the staff that operates the software in case of a 5 bedded hospital. Smaller hospitals have lesser computer skilled staff to operate the software. Plus, bigger hospitals have more compliance requirements than smaller ones. The software should help you achieve those.
Online Consultation Software – How does MyOPD Clinic Software help Doctors in Online Consultation?
We often get queries from Doctors on how will they benefit if they use MyOPD for consultation with patients over phone/email.
MyOPD allows Doctors to share a Prescription with the patient over Email or file sharing apps. You can configure your signature to get printed on the Rx as well.
More importantly, MyOPD allows you to print the medicine instructions in the language that the patient understands. So a Doctor in Kerala can prescribe to a Patient in Delhi and share a neatly written prescription with Hindi instructions. That is without knowing Hindi at all.
Isn’t that cool?

This Holi marks a special day for us. We got excellent response to our MyOPD ZIP Practice management app on Android. It has more than 9000+ downloads as we write this article.
After the success of our Android version, we are happy to announce that we are releasing the iOS version. The iOS version is under review and if all goes well, should be out in the next couple of days.
We are hugely excited for this new development and would like to share this with you.
Here is another preview of the MyOPD ZIP on iPad in Portrait mode.
Our team members when on their visit to the town of Mahad decided to meet up with one of our esteemed client Dr. Himmatrao Bawaskar. We had the privilege of meeting Dr. Bawaskar and Dr. Mrs. Bawaskar where they showed us around their humble Healthcare and Research center.
Dr. Bawaskar signing the copy of his Marathi book – “Barrister Cha Karta” for Team MyOPD
Here are 5 things you should know about Dr. Bawaskar:
Documentation: Dr. Bawaskar has a very process oriented approach to doing things. He maintains and documents his cases which help him in his research. He has done this right from the very beginning of his practice.
Research: Having done his documentation, he doesn’t leave those documents to be forgotten. In fact, they feed him into his research which helps him to devise new approaches and methodology. After all, he has devised a method to treat scorpion bite after thoroughly analyzing why the earlier treatments were not working. He has multiple publications under his belt and has also published in the revered journal for medical practice – The Lancet. He also his chapters in the API Book of medicine which he showed us.
Patient Education: His patients for snake and scorpion bites are tribals and rurals. Giving the right anti-venom is the key depending on the type of the bite. He has prepared various models of snakes – Cobra, Viper, Krait which he shows to his patients / their relatives to help them identify the one who has bit.
Trophies & Library: An entire floor at his Hospital is filled with Trophies he has earned and the Reference Books. There are tons of Feedbacks and Thank You letters from his patients. What amazed us is he has not kept any trophy in his consultation room. According to Dr. Bawaskar, if his patients see those many trophies, the patients may get overwhelmed and Dr. Bawaskar the person may eclipse Dr. Bawaskar the Doctor. When in consultation room, the patients are there to meet Dr. Bawaskar the Doctor. Such thinking is rare these days.
With some of his achievements. This room is filled with his achievements
Staying Simple: His told us point blank – It is hard to stay simple. Try if you can.
We bow down to such a personality who has improved healthcare through research. Dr. Bawaskar has shown that research can be done in a rural setup as well.
Let us take a look at some of the challenges faced by Hospital Administrators while creating a final bill:
Bed Charges: Patients get admitted to Beds which have different rates. The software needs to account for the rate of the bed based on stay of the patient. Plus, there are transfers to ICU and different category of beds like General, Semi-Private, Private etc. This needs to be handled properly.
Consultant Charges: Once admitted, a patient is seen by one or more consultants. Based on the rate of the consultant, the Consultant charges have to be calculated.
Consumption of various services: Different services are rendered to the patient during the stay. These are Nursing, Physiotherapy and so on. The bill has to account for these charges as well.
Handling of Advances given by Patient: Patients pay the Hospital partial amounts during the duration of the stay. These have to be adjusted during the final bill settlement.
Discounts: If you are giving discounts, these need to be taken care as well
