HealthTec Software, Inc. (http://www.healthtec-software.com), a leading provider of medical (FoxMedÂ) and dental (FoxDentÂ) practice management software has launched a new method of training for their clients nationwide.
For most modern medical offices, medical billing software is not a luxury, it's a necessity. A good practice management software solution is the safest and easiest way to keep track of patient appointments, process insurance billing, to analyze the financial aspects of a practice, and to integrate with other technology.
The process of learning how to use medical billing software effectively can seem like a daunting and complex task to many medical office personnel and a financial burden to many physicians who have to pay for expensive training. For most physicians it's a double edged sword. If they pay for expensive training and later lose that staff member to another office, they've paid to train someone else's staff. If they don't pay for training, their staff may never learn how to use their practice management software or they may only use it marginally and never take advantage of many time- and cost-saving features.
The danger of not being properly trained to use practice management software far out weighs the cost of the training, but for physicians all across the nation, the rising cost of keeping their doors open forces them to make cuts somewhere. That "somewhere," many times, is training.
One San Antonio, Texas company, HealthTec Software Inc. (http://www.healthtec-software.com), has developed a solution to this challenge by using the Internet. By using software designed to allow a facilitator to conduct a training class on FoxMedÂ / FoxDentÂ practice management software to clients who are hundreds or thousands of miles away, HealthTec has reduced the cost of training by 50 percent or more. A client can log onto the training class via a web browser in a matter of seconds. A trainer in San Antonio walks the client through the training, step-by-step, with two-way communication between HealthTec and the client. Since no travel is required the client can divide the training sessions into smaller segments and schedule the sessions when it's convenient for them.
Vance Nelson, the president of HealthTec Software, believes, "With practice management software or medical billing software becoming more sophisticated, combined with the constantly changing requirements of insurance companies and government agencies, it's important to thoroughly train medical and dental personnel to effectively utilize the software solution that the physician has selected. More than half of the software issues we see are due to a lack of training or improper setup. We realized that we had to find an affordable, easy solution for training office staff that didn't have the time or opportunity to leave their jobs and families. The answer is Internet training. We expect to see Internet training become a primary teaching tool of the future for many companies like ours."
