Medical Scheduling Software
What is Medical Scheduling Software?
Medical scheduling software helps medical practitioners manage and automate their practice.
A medical practice must manage patient schedules to avoid conflicts and delays. Additionally, the practice must bill patients and submit insurance claims. Medical scheduling software aims to assist practices with these tasks.
Vendors of medical scheduling software offer tools to manage patient schedules. Many of these tools allow patients to schedule their own appointments online or through a mobile app. Often, vendors include automated messaging and reminders for patients. Additionally, some software supports scheduling for individual care providers. This allows patients and employees to see when each provider is available.
Most medical scheduling vendors include additional functionality. Their software supports billing, new patient registration, claim submission, and financial reporting. These tools may be included with the software itself or as part of a larger medical practice management platform.
