In talking about business, typical corporates and companies come to mind. We tend to forget about other basic services as business entities, such as the much-needed services rendered by health care professionals. A doctor, dentist and physical therapist are good examples of non-corporate businesses with a unique and significant place in the business world.
Winter is usually a busy time for GPs as people begin to suffer from the annual common cold or flu. Everywhere, doctors’ rooms fill up with children and adults needing medical care. From Mondays to Fridays, dentists are swamped by a constant influx of patients needing routine or emergency dental care. A small doctor’s room or dental surgery won’t be able to handle their daily workflow without a solid plan in place to deal with any increased admin requirements. Even simple tasks such as answering telephone calls, receiving bookings and scheduling patients can become overwhelming when the volume of work increases. While dental or medical assistants often help out with administrative tasks, a more sustainable solution may involve the employment of a virtual assistant.
Medical professionals that make use of virtual assistance readily attest to having:
- Less work pressures and increased job satisfaction
Quality and frequent family time is something that many health professionals rarely enjoy. Nonetheless, virtual assistance can help free up time and make working flexi hours a possibility, ensuring that doctors can rekindle a sense of normalcy in their private lives.
- Greater patient retention
Health professionals that employ virtual assistants are able to dedicate their time and full attention to patient care, knowing that all other aspects of business and the running of the practice are being managed efficiently.
- Higher profit earnings
A happy patient readily refers his/her health care professional. A doctor or therapist that is well rested, patient, sharp and caring will make his/her patients feel cared for resulting in returning clients and word-of-mouth referrals.
