A happy provider makes a pleasant policy in a busy healthcare practise. As a physician, you face numerous times, demands that take care of your patients from what you like best. We are sure you feel that burnout is a real risk between EHR reporting, significant use tasks, reducing reimbursement, monitoring billing and collecting, managing staff, and marketing for your practice.
With the treatment of certain important but time-consuming offenders, you increase your job satisfaction and your commitment to staff and productivity. You can spend less time on administrative requirements and see more patients every day, helping you grow and practice rentable.
One area for saving your time is with the management of your staff. Three best practises are available here:
Institute a daily huddle
- The best way to improve teamwork, productivity and communication are to have a 15-minute team meeting every day. These short meetings can be discussed well:
- Problem resolution of current cases
- Allocating resources for the day — creating a timetable, resources and patient requirement plans for the day based on the problems or areas recently identified for process improvements that can be resolved — Select only one metric at a time, identify an improvement goal, and monitor performance towards this goal
- Staff appreciation
- Keep the meetings to 15 minutes, most importantly. Skip the plan if you don’t have to go that long.
Strengthen the team
Some practices follow a business model that includes a nurse or a physician. However, the close procedure leaves the physician with a heavy workload. The doctor’s notes and charts will help the patient provide all follow-up information, prescriptions, previous authorizations, etc., when a nurse or MA stays during and after the visit. That allows the patient to feel well cared for, improving patient satisfaction and maximizing the doctor’s time. This strategy enables the doctor to interact better and to see more patients. That is also possible.
Build the right team
To improve patient care and expand the practice, the practice should consider adding a nurse practitioner or physician assistant to the team. According to the AAFP, it may also be possible to add a PA or an NP to the workforce by offering extended periods or adding another chronic disease management procedure or speciality service field. These practitioners can offer preventive care, manage care, write prescriptions, care for chronic diseases and help regulatory requirements such as data collection on quality payment programmes.
To make sure that the medical doctor, NP and PA work to the top of their licences for the best possible results, it is important to delegate as much as possible to the members.
