How can medical virtual assistants streamline care in private practice healthcare?
When it comes to administrative tasks and knowledge work, virtual and remote workers provide advantages in that they don’t require office space, may work more flexible hours, and can help streamline workflows and processes. However, despite these benefits, many private healthcare practices (like physical therapy practices and physician groups) have reservations about using medical virtual assistants in their practices. Perhaps they’ve had poor experiences in the past. Perhaps they don’t like the idea of the using a “call center” approach to providing care.
Well, my guest this week, Dr. Steven Kupferman from MedVA, developed a solution to some of these reservations that clinicians and practices may have regarding remote administrative work in their practices. MedVA helps private healthcare practices source, hire, and train remote medical virtual assistants who can provide high quality administrative work at a relatively low cost when compared to onsite and in-office staff.
What we cover in this Episode:
- The challenges private healthcare practices face with recruiting and retaining clinic staff
- Leveraging offsite and remote staff to reduce the number of daily tasks placed on in-clinic staff
- Opportunities to innovate service delivery through virtual and remote work
- How to ensure that remote work doesn’t impact patient experience
- Achieving Better Outcomes by using technology to streamline care
We’re starting to create videos of certain podcast episodes, which can find on the YouTube Channel.
