Medical Collection. How Organized is your office?

Written by Mike Nielsen

At one time or another, all of us have experiencedrepparttar frustration of waiting in a doctor's office. It seems as though every time we go to seerepparttar 119444 doctor orrepparttar 119445 dentist we end up having to wait for a ridiculous amount of time, and then when we finally do get in, we are only "treated" for a few minutes and then sent on our way. I have always wondered why that isrepparttar 119446 case. Ifrepparttar 119447 doctor is only seeing each patient for a fraction ofrepparttar 119448 time thatrepparttar 119449 patient had to wait, then what are they doing behindrepparttar 119450 scenes? As a student inrepparttar 119451 field of business, I have often wondered if doctor's offices are slow because they might possibly be a little bit disorganized. I have friends that work in medical offices and they have said to me that things can be a bit crazy because there is so much paperwork that goes on and time to be organized is hard to come by. In this article I would like to propose a few solutions to help medical offices to be more organized.

My first suggestion comes by way of organizing all of those hard copies that come intorepparttar 119452 medical office. To get started first head down to your local hospital supplier or office supply store and get some hospital chart dividers. The heavy ones withrepparttar 119453 plastic tabs will last longer and make it easier to find medical records inrepparttar 119454 future.

Next, have your medical assistant collect and sortrepparttar 119455 incoming records according to their proper divider. After they allrepparttar 119456 records are sorted according to a specific category,repparttar 119457 assistant should then go back and sort each section and put into some sort of chronological or alphabetical order. When allrepparttar 119458 records have been categorized and ordered, write a page number on each page so that ifrepparttar 119459 page gets used later it can easily be put back in its exact same location.

Finally, take your organized record to a copy service and haverepparttar 119460 whole thing copied. After you have it copied, take both complete records and have them 3-hole-punched and put them in binders. Label your copied set of records as "edited copy" so that you may underline, highlight, and write on it as needed.

As leaders we always want to improverepparttar performance of our organization. To improve we must releaserepparttar 119443 creativity in our employees, leaders must get involved in their employees’ work. Not everyone knows how to do this, but maybe it isn’t all that different than training a puppy. Following are common themes used in training puppies.

Have a proper kennel, it should not be too large, just enough space to stand up, turn around and lie down. Most puppies will not soil where they lay. Having too much space in your business attracts waste. Excess inventory, outdated machines, old files, and other junk will soil too large a space.

Schedule all feeding times atrepparttar 119444 same time each day. Companies through Japan have a practice calledrepparttar 119445 “manager’s walk,” where a manager walks through their area atrepparttar 119446 same time each day. A theme is selected for each walk, asks questions aroundrepparttar 119447 theme and shares information. This is a powerful process for learning and sharing information.

Spend as much quality time as possible with your new puppy, this encourages him to dorepparttar 119448 things you ask of him. To releaserepparttar 119449 creativity in our employees, a leader must get involved in that employee’s work. They must follow up on employee ideas and promote employee involvement inrepparttar 119450 business.

First thing inrepparttar 119451 morning take your puppy fromrepparttar 119452 kennel torepparttar 119453 area you’ve decided will berepparttar 119454 place for your puppy to eliminate.
