Why medical institutions need a healthcare CRM

When you say ‘healthcare’, you hear ‘trust’.

But a typical day in healthcare institutions is unpredictable. Doctors and nurses get pulled into emergency operations, patients do not show up for appointments, and some show up without one. While new patients walk in every day, some come in years later.

This means your staff has to keep track of changes in schedules, capture new information, and dig through old records to obtain medical histories. Being able to obtain all the right information at the right time without overwhelming your patients becomes a struggle, especially when the information is scattered across different software.

Amid this unpredictability, patience and patients are lost. Trust and loyalty, which is integral to your business, falls through the cracks.

To pull off an effective day of managing schedules and retaining restless patients, you need to adopt the right tools and technology, such as a healthcare CRM.

What’s in Freshsales

Capture all interactions and know your patients inside out

Freshsales unifies every record across a patient's medical history in one place by

  • Giving a complete view of every patient’s contact details, social media profile, the doctor assigned, and medical bills
  • Providing notes on the side for your staff to type down the patients’ symptoms, diagnosis, medication, and treatments for future reference
  • Syncing with calendar to schedule and view upcoming appointments with the doctor
  • Pulling together every conversation via email, chat, SMS, and phone call.

Gain instant visibility to medical bills

With a great number of patients coming in every day for different purposes, it is challenging to keep an eye on the billing process of each of them. With a healthcare CRM software, your staff can track the bills of each patient using a visual pipeline. 

Freshsales provides multiple pipelines that allow you to customize the billing process for each department. You could also create a separate pipeline for doctors to calculate their commissions for each treatment performed.
