Old habits die hard, especially in healthcare where change can be slow. Despite the widespread use of smartphones and technology, many doctors still rely on paper forms, cards, and phone messages for charge capture. This outdated approach is inefficient, but it’s familiar, making it difficult to break the habit.
The Pain of Change
Redesigning workflows and processes can be challenging, especially when things are working, albeit inefficiently. The fear of failure and the pain of change often prevent doctors from adopting a more modern approach.
Fear of Failure
Breaking the status quo is never easy, especially in the workplace. The fear of failure and the perceived difficulty of getting all parties involved to agree on changes can discourage doctors from making much-needed updates.
Change Starts with You
The resistance to change can come from anyone in the practice, including the doctors, schedulers, billers, and APPs. It’s time to take a step towards positive change, especially since COVID-19 has accelerated the interest in digital transformation. With the right plan and use case, even the most skeptical of doctors can come around.
