Patients put a lot of trust in the medical practices they choose for their healthcare needs. That trust has to be earned, and not just when they’re visiting with the doctor or nurse. Patients expect and trust that their medical providers are managing their health information thoroughly and confidentially.
Updated and well-organized patient records are essential for any medical practice, and having real-time access to patient messages and information is a must. A medical answering service equipped with the right web portal technology can be the key to managing these secure communications.
However, some answering services don’t provide a portal for physicians and staff to review or leave messages in real-time, or to change the on-call schedule. In fact, some answering services charge extra fees for any changes to scheduling, but they shouldn’t.
Medical answering services should provide all their healthcare practices with a web-portal that enables physicians and staff members to communicate easily. A web portal should provide secure communication features that a medical office can benefit from in real time, such as:
- Staff members can see the messages that the medical answering service has taken.
- The medical office staff can see the notes the physician added to each message.
- The staff will also have the ability to send the physician secure messages from the web-portal.
- A physician or staff member is able to add to or change the on-call schedule.
Secure web portals are essential for any healthcare business that handles patient information, such as:
- Physicians’ offices
- Medical Suppliers
- Home Health Care
