7 Reasons Your Healthcare Practice Should Hire Medical Virtual Assistants
Many medical practices face similar challenges that affect their staff, their bottom line, and efficiency within the practice.
Today, the office staff in practices are more stressed and overwhelmed than ever and it can affect the productivity and efficiency of the entire business.
By utilizing trained Medical Virtual Assistants there are many benefits that allow practices to grow and reduce the overwhelm felt. We’ve outlined 7 benefits for why practices should hire Medical Virtual Assistants.
7 Reasons To Hire a Medical Virtual Assistant
Enhance Doctor-Patient Experience
Working with a knowledgeable virtual assistant enables you to arrange patient follow-ups and individual calls for additional medical advice swiftly and simply.
This enables you to focus on each patient while another person completes their task in the background.
Patients dislike crowded spaces and could feel uneasy if there are too many individuals in your waiting room. If a patient needs a one-on-one consultation, your VA can assist you in setting up a remote appointment so they don’t have to visit your clinic in person. This results in a better doctor-patient relationship.
Act as an Extension of Your Practice
Our Medical Virtual Assistants act as an extension of your practice! This means that we utilize your tools and systems to perform the tasks you need done.
Whatever systems and processes you are currently running are the exact ones that our Medical Virtual Assistants use when you bring them on your team.
Grow Your Practice and Cut Costs
You need something to keep you afloat and make sure your business expands because the “New Normal” is proving to be difficult for today’s medical practices.
Employing a skilled Medical Virtual Assistant not only helps you achieve that crucial work-life balance, but it also cuts down on wasted time and boosts your income. As a result, you can expand your practice while minimizing expenses.
Many medical practices simply don’t have the physical or financial resources to add more in-house employees. Medical Virtual Professionals can reduce your operational expenses while saving on office space.
We’re not the biggest fans of the term Virtual “Assistants”. This is because they are much more than just an assistant.
Our Medical VAs are professionally trained, college educated (many with nursing or related degrees), and are more than capable of handling many of the most common tasks your practice handles.
Boost Your Productivity
The extensive training that REVA Medical VAs receive prepares them to perform daily activities like triage at the front desk, insurance verification, and returning calls and emails.
A Medical Virtual Assistant handles all the tedious administrative tasks associated with running a clinic, freeing you up to concentrate on patient care and service excellence. Working with a capable assistant will increase your productivity.
No Office Set-Up
There is no need for you to set up physical space in your workplace or rent another room for him or her because you will be working with a medical “virtual” assistant.
Your Medical VA can assist you remotely and already has the necessary tools for the job. A lot of money can be saved compared to hiring an internal staff.
Being accessible to your patients for just 8 to 9 hours is insufficient. Some of them will message you asking for their medicines or other health-related information, and instead of taking a break, you continue to respond.
Even on closed days and holidays, a Med VA will be on call to cover and support your practice.
