Time becomes increasingly difficult to manage as a practice grows.

Introducing workflow controls can improve time management enormously.
Correct patient information is vital to efficient practice management, not least because this improves the billing system.
Inform your patients of your terms and conditions of payment up front, preferably with signs in your reception area.
Ensure that once-off patients know that they must pay cash up front, particularly in holiday areas.
Introduce a system of reconciling billing with patients seen each day.
Use an SMS system for patient reminders and to tell patients if you are running late.
Practice management software allows you to automate most of these functions and leads to better overall practice management, which, in turn, leads to better patient care.
