Am I Really Paperless?

Many dental practices would answer “yes” when asked if they are a paperless office. However, if you really look at how being a paperless practice works, you might be surprised. Everyone knows that going paperless means less paper around the office, but did you know that being paperless also means more effective patient recall, patient communication, better insurance management, and a smoother billing process for your office? I believe that truly being a paperless practice requires dedicating the four corners of your practice workflow to being digital.

Four corners of the digital practice

1. Digital Forms – Accessing New Patient forms and health history paperwork online
2. Scheduling – Communicating with patients about their appointments
3. Billing – Streamlining the process
4. Insurance Management – Creating and sending electronic claims to speed up reimbursement

Why going paperless is important

I understand that as a dentist you need to stay focused on keeping your patients healthy. You don’t want to be worried about insurance claims not getting to the payors as fast as possible, bills from your office not going out on time, patients not getting a text message about their next appointment, or staff spending time retyping hand-written forms. Henry Schein Practice Solutions is a partner in your business to achieve a solution to these problems quickly, easily, and affordably; freeing you up to do what you do best – providing the best possible patient care.
