Benefits of a Cloud-Based Practice Management Software

When it comes to practice management software, the options can seem endless. In a constantly evolving industry like health care, new regulations and trends demand adaptability from therapists and the software providers that serve them. But as both the industry specifically and the world at large become more global and digital in nature, one option has emerged as a must-have tool for healthcare professionals: cloud-based software.

Ease of Access

Do you want to catch up on charting on your cross-country flight? Are you working from home this week? No problem! For busy therapists, cloud-based software like TherapyAppointment offers the ability to access patient records, appointment calendars, billing information, and more – whether you’re in the office, at home, or on the go. Unlike software that is housed on a single computer, cloud-based programs can be available whenever and wherever you need them.

Data Protection

If you’ve ever been a victim of a computer virus or hardware malfunction, you know how stressful it can be trying to recover potentially lost data. By choosing a system that backs up your data to the cloud, you can ensure that even if your computer crashes, your files are secure. When shopping for a practice management software, make sure that your provider cares about the safety and confidentiality of your valuable information.

Streamlined Communications

Many practice management programs, including TherapyAppointment, offer advanced messaging and email systems to help you communicate with patients and insurers while complying with HIPAA standards. By keeping your messaging systems in the same place as your notes and calendars, you can cross-reference instantly to make staying organized a snap.

Patient Involvement

The accessibility of a cloud-based system is not only convenient to you as a therapist – it’s a major benefit to your patients as well. According to one of our clients, all he has to do is send a link to his website to potential clients. They can access his calendar, register as a new client, and set appointments according to their schedules. They can also cancel or re-schedule appointments on their own, which saves him a minimum of three to five hours every week. TherapyAppointment also sends appointment reminders to patients to make sure they stay as organized as you do!

Technical Support

Let’s face it: sometimes, software experiences glitches, and even the most computer-savvy users have questions. When your practice management software is stored in the cloud, a trained group of experts like those at TherapyAppointment can access your system and walk you through any issues you may have. And the best part is, there are no home visits, office appointments, or wasted time required!

In today’s interconnected world, therapists need an easy way to access, secure, organize, and troubleshoot their software more than ever. Cloud-based practice management software like TherapyAppointment provides the ease of access, strength of security, and wealth of features that you need. Our users rave about the convenience of our cloud-based system. The next practice to benefit could be yours.
