Holistic Health – A diverse field of alternative medicine in which the “whole person” is the focus, not just the malady itself.
Irony – A state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.
Are you a Holistic health care practice that still uses paper intake forms? As Alanis once wrote “isn’t it ironic?” (Argue her proper use of irony as much as you’d like she gave the word it’s theme song.)
As a holistic health care practitioner you focus on the whole person in an effort to improve their overall life and not just deal with a symptom. What if you treated your business like your patients and looked at the whole business rather than just once piece? It’s easy to ignore something as mundane as your intake process. “This is just how it’s always been done.” you might say or “I prefer to focus on my patients rather than my intake forms.”
I’m with you. Patients are priority. That’s exactly why you should look at transitioning your Holistic Health Intake form from paper to electronic.
On average a Holistic Health practice will lose 22 full work days dealing with PDF/paper based intake forms. Talk about a time suck! If you’re spending nearly 10% of your year focused on paper, that leaves a lot less time for patients.
What could your staff do with 22 more days to devote to clients? More personalized attention? More follow up calls? More targeted marketing efforts? More education? What do you “not have time for” in your practice that 22 days would give you access to?
Where did we come up with 22 days? Industry research shows that it takes an average of 30 minutes to process/file a paper based patient form. Let’s say you see an average of 30 new patients a month. Do the math using an 8 hour work day and there you have 22 day work days lost. Amazing how time adds up over a year.
There’s no good reason to not kick the paper habit now. We have made converting your holistic health intake forms insanely easy and affordable. Just send in your current forms or use our templates and get your office staff out of the filing cabinet and in front of your clients. Improve your patient experience with beautiful, easy to use forms that patients are 80% more likely to fill out before their appointment.
Electronic intake is Earth friendly and as a holistic healthcare provider that’s something you can feel good about.
