Are You Prepared for the New Normal in Healthcare?
Are You Ready for the Patient Volume Rollercoaster?
Models predict that the coronavirus crisis will ebb and flow for the foreseeable future. Whether those models are completely accurate or not, the new normal in healthcare is here. And we’ll all have to adjust. So what does this mean for your otolarnygology practice?
It means that the way you’ve practiced in the past might not sustain future success. Your practice may experience surges of patients into your office coupled with periods of closing your doors where you may need to rely heavily on services such as telehealth. Which means that you need to be more agile than ever, whether it’s through an all-in-one, ENT-specific EHR and practice management system with a variety of patient engagement tools and mobile functionality or business operations services that can help you navigate the financial instability of the times.
Is your current system ready for this reality? More importantly, are you ready?

Prepare Your Otolaryngology Practice for the New Normal
Searching for Opportunity in Inopportune Times
Unfortunately, you’re most likely seeing fewer patients right now. And if you aren’t using tools like telehealth, your number may be even less. Lower patient volumes may abate over time, but it doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen again. So what you do now could impact your practice’s success in the future.
The opportunity lies in the fact that, with a lower volume of patients, your otolarnygology practice can take this time to make larger changes. Say, for instance, building out your virtual capabilities with a telehealth-enabled EHR system that can enable you to treat patients remotely when they can’t come into your office. By addressing these larger concerns now and updating your practice with modern software, you can feel more confident when you reopen your practice fully.

Do your patients even know if you’re open through digital means? For your practice to be running in this environment, having an operational plan is a must.
Your Otolaryngology Practice is Open—Virtually
Whether we go through periods of closures or not, patients are now expecting mobile and digital avenues to seek your care. So supplying your practice with the tools and services it needs to address the future delivery of healthcare should be a focal point in these trying times and beyond. Engaging your patients before and after their visits may be important to how they feel about the care they receive which, ultimately, could decide whether they come back or suggest you to their friends and family.
