These days, with many businesses reopening, including medical facilities and clinics, everyone will be operating under the “new normal.” But what does this mean exactly? Well, it means that there will be certain steps health practitioners will need to take to ensure that their patients and staff remain well-protected, and several of these steps begin before a patient ever sets foot into a clinic or healthcare facility.
As one of today’s leading scheduling software providers, My Client Schedule is helping medical professionals and clinics get back to work with COVID-19 screening solutions for clinics and other services. Let’s take a look at some of these important steps below.
Communication is Key
When it comes to reopening your doors, communication is key. You need to be able to easily communicate with your patients. This includes booking appointments, screening new patients and clients, and communicating the processes that will take place on the day of the appointment. One of the best ways to do so is by having reliable scheduling software in place that has integrated these new requirements.
As mentioned above, there will be some additional steps for your clients to take if you’re a medical professional or run a clinic, and one of them is completing a screening form prior to their appointment. The right scheduling software will make it easy for patients to access and fill out their screening forms online. You can create customized questionnaires that can be easily sent via text or email. Health practitioners are also required to self-screen each day and guess what? Scheduling software provides solutions for that process as well.
COVID-19 Sanitation Checklists
Health practitioners are required to sanitize their rooms and equipment for every appointment. To make things easier, having a checklist handy for your staff members is key. With My Client Schedule, you can easily create customized checklists based on your location’s needs that can be checked off, then filed by staff members at the completion of their appointment.
Appointment Day Necessities
There shouldn’t be any mystery as to what patients should do when they arrive on the appointment day. Scheduling software makes it easy to communicate these processes beforehand by providing email and text updates about the appointment process. In most cases, you will need to minimize the number of people in the waiting room, and with the right scheduling software package, you can send updates in real-time to patients, letting them know when it’s OK for them to enter.
