That’s because you do so much for your office, team, and patients – all with a smile. But it can be exhausting to do it all without the right tools. In this session, we will introduce new strategies to not only be seen as superpowered but to actually feel it, too.

Course Learning Objectives:

  • How to identify where your efforts are most needed in your practice

3 Benefits of Your Data in the Cloud

How cloud practice management software can make your data more useful

As consumers, more and more of the data we rely on in our everyday lives resides in the cloud – and it’s easy to see why. The cloud empowers us to access our data anywhere, anytime, with the push of a button. The associated quality of life benefits have made adoption a no-brainer for many of us. In the workplace, however, shifting deeply rooted processes and changing to cloud-based practice management software may seem more daunting. In this post, we’ll look at 3 ways the cloud can add new value to your data, which may convince you the transition is well worth your while!

1. Gather All Practice Data in One Place

Having all your data in one place makes smart business possible. Particularly for multilocation practices, the cloud adds value by centralizing your scheduling, patient information, and practice data, and letting you access that data from anywhere and in real time. At a glance, you can see everything that’s happening in any location at any given moment.

This accessibility prepares you to better handle unknowns.

As an example, if a patient cancels an appointment with short notice, real-time schedule visibility allows you to react more quickly, adjust accordingly, and spend your team’s time more efficiently.

2. Organize All Your Data in the Same Way

Many multilocation practices are still operating different practice management software at different locations. This handcuffs their practice by keeping their locations in software silos that prevent apples-to-apples comparison of data and not allowing staff members the flexibility to easily float between practice locations.

“If I’m a restaurant owner and I have one menu at one location and another menu at a second location, I can’t compare insights,” said Mary Beth Swift, who managed dental practices of all types and sizes for nearly two decades before joining the Fuse team. “Operationally, the same is true for dental practices. You need to have all your locations operating on the same data set to draw meaningful conclusions.”

Cloud practice management not only standardizes the data set across multiple locations, it goes a step further.

Because the software is in the cloud, updates are automatic and ongoing. This means all users are always using the latest, most up-to-date and fully featured version, and there’s never a concern about one location updating before another. This makes it easier to streamline your training process and ensures a better, more consistent experience across locations.

3. Use Your Data to Find Meaning

After consolidating your data in one place and organizing it so it all works together, the next logical step is to put that data to use at a strategic level.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, an information dump that requires additional in-depth analysis just doesn’t cut it. The expectation is meaningful data that you can quickly identify and act upon.

What that means is more useful insights into the key areas of your practice – where growth is occurring, where expectations aren’t being met, and how you can plan to optimize your operational efficiency.

Your practice management software should be flexible enough to meet your business goals, not the other way around.
