Efficiency is Key for Effective Scheduling
Every physical therapist, regardless if they are a sole practitioner, own multiple practices, or work in a hospital outpatient facility, knows how important (and how much of a headache) scheduling can be. Scheduling patients efficiently will ensure you have enough time between patients and can catch up on key paperwork. If you have a practice with multiple clinicians, an effective scheduler will let you know which therapist is working when, and when new patients can be scheduled in.
On the contrary, if your scheduling method is a mess, you risk spreading yourself and your clinicians too thin. This can effect the quality of care your patients receive, as well as ensuring clinicians don’t have time to complete paperwork in a timely fashion, leading them to take their work home.
Perhaps most importantly, a messy scheduling system can lead to lost revenue. If you over schedule patients, you may have to reschedule which could lead to the loss of that patient. Additionally, if your clinicians are rushed to complete billing documentation and paperwork due to a haphazard schedule, they may not include the proper codes and justifications for your clinic to receive as much as you’re entitled to through a patient’s insurance.
