Are you drowning in papers? Tired of smudging that ink on endless paperwork? Medical forms got you down? Bring your medical office into the 21st century by going paperless. A paperless system will allow you to seamlessly integrate your patients’ medical records with the latest treatment options available, making them easy to find and sort. Work faster and with more efficiency than ever before, and ease the pain of hours upon hours of sorting through documents. Here are a few things that you can start doing today to transition your medical office into a paperless one.

Document Scanning

Help your medical office evolve with the implementation of a document scanner. Investing in a document scanner can help streamline your business and get rid of paperwork that takes up time and space. Before you convert your forms to a digital format, using a document scanner is a good way in the meantime to keep up with your paperwork. If you don’t want to invest the manpower and money in a document scanner that you use yourself, you can outsource the job. Micro Record can save you a huge amount of time and money by doing it all for you.

Electronic Billing

Another big waste of paper in a medical office has to do with billing. Give your patients the option to go paperless when it comes to their medical bills. Make an online patient portal where they can pay bills and access their charts, so you do not have to mail the documents. Do away with snail mail! Send and receive documents instantly with the click of your mouse. Electronic billing eliminates the need for paper claim submission, can be kept as proof of claim receipt, makes for faster transaction times, and allows for quick processing of claims.

E-Fax Machines

Purchasing a fax machine is well worth the investment in the long run. Not only will this investment save you time and money, but it will also propel your office into the future. By purchasing this integral piece of equipment, you will streamline your business and become a more efficient facility. With an e-fax, you can send documents to your email in PDF format to standardize all forms so that they are all in the same format.
