The bane of most medical practices—and businesses in general—is wasted time. While we may not expect everyone on the clock to be 100% efficient every minute of the day, various small things can get in the way of getting the job done. When we add those small things together, it can result in a lot of wasted time, which means wasted money.

Elizabeth Woodcock and Deborah Keegan wrote a list of great ways to streamline your practice, especially by utilizing new technological tools and collecting important data. Starting with your front office and patient intake, they highlight a number of Dos and Don’ts that can make your practice operate at a higher level. Ultimately, it comes down to creating a structure for your staff to work in and things will happen fluidly.
