Quick Tip: Increase Your Efficiency & Lower Your Overhead with Mobile Technology

1) Use a mobile credit card processor such as Go!CardConnect.

You don’t need to “take insurance” but you do need to accept credit cards in your practice.  I use Go!Card Connect, it has simple fee structure, it’s fast and secure, that as a low volume merchant is very difficult to beat. We can offer patients multiple payment options such as “pay as you go”, payment plans (weekly, bi-monthly, monthly) or to “pay ahead” for a 5% discount. We can even keep patients card “on-file” which means checkout is a breeze. The payment is transferred into my account the next day.  There is no terminal to buy and they have a dongle for Android, iPad or iPhones. Plus, you can take it with you to your patient’s homes, to health fares, etc and accept payments in your office or on the go. In our office we use the USB reader which plugs right into our computer and is lightning fast.

2) Use Google’s suite of programs such as Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Voice, YouTube, Google Cloud Print

Free email, Free scheduling, Free telephone number, Free Marketing & Patient Education via Videos, Print from your mobile phone

Very little Spam (if any), Integrates seamlessly, no need for expensive and time consuming EMR, email filters can be used for screening applicants, schedule patients from anywhere

I use G Suite for my EMR. It’s only $10/month!!! You can learn how I set it up for my practice it here.

3) Dropbox

Synchronize and back up all of your documents and photos across your devices, including your smartphone, for Free. Share photos and collaborate on documents. This is what I use to sync all my documents for my practice on both of my computers, my office computer, my cell phone, etc.

      Hey Katie, Thanks for your question.
      No, I do not. My practice, in it’s current form, is not a HIPAA “Covered Entity.”
