Tuesday, March 31st is known as World Backup Day, the day when people and organizations alike are invited to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups. A practice's backup "hygiene" is key to saving the data and patient health information stored in the MacPractice database, including any x-rays, digital radiography, insurance card scans, or other images that you have attached to your patients' accounts. As always, if you have any questions, our tech support department would be happy to verify an adequately set up backup configuration for your office.
Even though clear communication is more critical than ever, for many practices, the challenges of communicating with patients have increased in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. Most practices have updated their front desk and waiting room policies to reflect the new Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations on clinic preparedness. Many practices have had to update their strategy for controlling community spread multiple times over the last month. Here are four top patient communication issues and some ideas on how your practice can best manage in this current crisis.

Five Ways to Refocus on Workflow
New Year, New Practice? Perhaps you haven’t resolved to completely overhaul your workflow in the coming year, but find yourself hoping to lighten the load or create a bit more harmony in the office. Changes need not be enormous to be effective, and the right tweaks can seriously impact your day or even your bottom line. Here are five small, straightforward ways to refocus on your practice workflow in 2020.
Focus on Financial Health
To maximize your profits in the coming year, you’ll need to develop a strategy that brings your practice’s financial health into the future where the revenue cycle management process just isn’t getting easier. Spotting and seizing opportunities for efficiency, staff satisfaction, and patient engagement can play a crucial role in improving your bottom line.
With the beginning of the new year upon us, now is the time to resolve to make significant changes that will make a meaningful difference in your work in the coming year and beyond. For doctors and practice managers operating their own small to mid-sized healthcare practices, one of the most significant ways to initiate lasting changes that transform their work is to change their technology platform. Most doctors already use Apple products at home because of the user-friendly design, ease of use, and longevity. If you’ve thought about it before but couldn’t do it, it’s time to rethink making 2020 the year you finally switch to Mac and MacPractice in your practice.
As we begin the last month of the decade, many practices find themselves asking what is next for them. While we are sure to see plenty of advances and challenges within the healthcare industry in 2020, practices are also sure to encounter many opportunities for growth. Consider the possibilities ahead and contemplate this list of ways you might grow your practice in 2020.
