Organising Your Admin During COVID-19

In these unprecedented times, with business closures and a greater amount of remote working, it is perhaps more important than ever to keep on top of and organise your clinic’s admin. For some, the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK has meant efficient remote working is now vital to keeping businesses running smoothly; for others, it has increased pressure on their services and placed further demands on management systems.

Ensuring your practice admin tasks are kept in order is integral smooth management, allowing you to provide a better and more efficient service to patients and staff.

Keep a schedule

Regardless of whether your practice is open during this time, it is imperative that business and management tasks are logged and scheduled for reference. 

Using an efficient calendar system will allow you to easily see professional and patient appointments scheduled throughout the day, week and month, meaning you can prepare and plan your time accordingly. 

The PracticePal scheduling function is modelled on Google Calendar, offering a clear and easy to use interface that allows you to manage your appointment diary across multiple clinic locations.

Manage patient’s online bookings

Implementing an online booking system allows patients to completely manage their own appointments without any necessary interaction from you. An automated booking system such as this one gives you more free time to focus on other areas of your practice.

PracticePal offers a simple to use online booking app that can be quickly integrated into your website to provide patients with an easy to use booking system. This system can also be linked to your calendar to keep your appointments all in one place.

Track income and expenditure

The COVID-19 outbreak is having significant financial repercussions for a lot of businesses across multiple industries. Take some time to outline the financial incomings and expenditure of your practice to give yourself a clear forecast of your current economic situation. Keeping on top of finances continually throughout the tax year will greatly reduce your time spent preparing quarterly and year-end accounts.

The PracticePal management system offers a simple financial logging system with handy functions that allow you to quickly segment and categorize your balance sheets and VAT groups.

There is also a comprehensive report system in PracticePal that allows you to generate quick PDF reports to analyse a whole range of services, including finances, patient cases and audit logs.

Multifunctional practice management system

Our PracticePal management system allows clinics and medical practices to manage all aspects of their business, remotely, from virtually any device. The practice management software can be as simple or advanced as you need, and can be linked to a range of professional platforms, including Google Drive/Docs, Mailchimp, Xero, Stripe, Healthcode and more.
