Improving efficiency in office practices

J Med Pract Manage. 2000 Jan-Feb;15(4):176-80.


Office practices are very busy places. However, a large degree of inefficiency and wasted effort is embedded in all of that activity. Improving efficiency enhances an office's ability to provide care in a more organized, comfortable environment for clinicians, staff, and patients alike. It improves access to care and allows more time to be spent on important clinical issues. Improving efficiency improves an office's work capacity without adding resources and, therefore, improves its financial performance as well.
