  QuicDoc® and Office Therapy® E-Newsletter

From the desk of James B. Miller, Director of Compliance and Quality Control

On Sunday the 17th of June we honor Fathers. Father's Day is a celebration of contributions that fathers and father figures make to children's lives, to communities, and to society.

Why not combine your Father's day celebration with the celebration of America's Great Outdoors this year? Get Dad outside and enjoy the benefits of active outdoor fun together! Enjoy our magnificent shared resources of forests, parks, lakes, and other public lands and waters. Spend time with Dad and the family connecting with nature and upholding the legacy of conserving our land for future generations. Presidential recognition of the Great Outdoors was begun in 1998 by President Clinton.

We hope you continue to enjoy our monthly newsletters. In this edition we have included a special section on how you can keep your brain from shrinking. That's right, shrinking. Also we discuss a feature in QuicDoc used to determine how patients rate their care and also what to consider when working remotely. You will find a section on the importance of keeping your software updated, and we announce a special offer on additional licenses to help you ramp up your summer.

Please Enjoy!

  Use QuicDoc to Survey Your Clients and Find Out How You Rate

Behavioral healthcare has transformed from a sellers' market to a buyers' market, and patient satisfaction is a part of the definition of quality. Internet sites such as therapistratings.com and angieslist.com as well as social media sites are posting consumer reviews, and patients are writing about their positive, as well as their negative experiences on all sorts of blogs and forums. There is no way to control what your clients may post about their experiences regarding your services.

By surveying your patients towards the end of therapy, you can gain insight on their views to find out what is working well and where improvements are needed. This allows you to not only minimize negative postings on the web, but to gain market leverage. QuicDoc has a built-in Patient Satisfaction Survey for just this purpose.

QuicDoc, Electronic Medical Records, 5010, EHR, complete chart, treatment planTo access the survey, elect Patients Satisfaction Survey from the QuicDoc Assessments menu. See the Help file for more information.

  Remote Access and HIPAA

Want the flexibility to work from home? Remote Access software allows you to connect to your PC from any internet-connected device or computer, giving you the ability to work from home or other locations.

In choosing Remote Access software the first thing to consider is the suitability of the software for the connected device you plan to use (e.g. iPad, iPhone, Android, another PC). The second thing to consider, if your are accessing Protected Health Information (PHI), should be whether the software meets HIPAA security guidelines for remote use and access to electronic PHI.

We have found two products that specifically state that they meet these requirements.

  Stress is Shrinking our Brains

“Those aggravating things that go wrong in the day and those irritating things that go bump in the night – disrupting routines and interrupting sleep – all have a cumulative effect on our brains, especially the ability to remember and learn.

As science gains greater insight into the consequences of stress on the brain, the picture that emerges is not a pretty one. A chronic overreaction to stress overloads the brain with powerful hormones that are intended only for short-term duty in emergency situations. Their cumulative effect damages and kills brain cells,” this all according to Franklin Institute's web site topic on the Human Brain.

Additionally, an article in the Yale Daily News by Jacqueline Sahlberg states that a recent Yale Study showed stress can reduce brain volume and function even in otherwise healthy individuals.

All this data confirms that stress is shrinking our brains. So relax! It is key to a healthy brain.

  Keeping Software Up to Date

One of the many benefits our Professional Edition software offers is the ability to run more efficiently and reliably. This is particularly true in multi-user and remote access environments.

Our May newsletter stressed the importance of installing updates to keep your PC secure and running smoothly. This is also true of updates to your DocuTrac software. By keeping your software up-to-date, you are assuring it's ability to run smoothly and the integrity of your data.

Additionally, DocuTrac Support advises Office Therapy customers who are e-filing and have not yet upgraded to the Professional Edition, to do so in order to e-file with 5010.

For information on updating to the Professional Edition, please contact Sales at 800-850-8510.

A representative will be happy to assist you.
