How Software Can Aid Data Processing

Managing a clinic or practice naturally involves handling a whole array of data, from sensitive patient information to administrative business data to help with the seamless running of the practice.

Using an efficient practice management system allows you to easily process large amounts of important data, including maintaining patient records and cases, reviewing appointments and monitoring financial data. As well as keeping vital data organised, it provides you with a great level of security while allowing for user-friendly navigation.

Patient Data

The largest set and most important type of data that you will be dealing with is patient data. This information will include highly sensitive personal and medical data which will need to be managed incredibly seriously and strictly within the guidelines of the law.

As part of the UK government response to the coronavirus outbreak, they are looking to gather anonymised patient information to build a COVID-19 data project in order to help study the pandemic across the UK. PracticePal allows you to easily process and export such information, if required, safely and securely with its market-leading patient management system.

To ensure absolute protection, PracticePal runs in a secure environment using the very latest page encryption technology. Web servers are hosted in a state-of-the-art UK based data centre and software firewalls are constantly monitored and updated. As added protection, customers get a seperate Microsoft SQL Server database that is automatically backed up on a nightly basis.

The size of your practice will ultimately determine the amount of patient data you are managing; however, regardless of the volume, an efficient practice management software package will provide you with a ready-made and specifically designed system that will make managing and processing your data quick and simple.

PracticePal provides a clear and easy to use clinic management system; its user-friendly interface and multifaceted functionality allows you to enter and process data no matter how complex.
