Medical practice management is about doctors across various disciplines of medicine and the staff supporting their practice. Operating a professional clinic is not easy. Doctors working in a clinic should prepare themselves to overcome many challenges to deliver high-quality and cost-effective patient care. Genamet system helps private practices to handle its work functions efficiently so that the doctor can focus on patient care.
The health care domain is making tremendous progress due to advancements in telemedicine and digital technology. Patients are increasingly using online facilities to fulfill their medical needs. Greater online visibility better would be a practice's value, resulting in business improvement.
Listing clinics on an aggregator site may not always offer appropriate outcomes for physicians. Aggregators charge exorbitant fees from physicians for every appointment booking. Also, the termination of the paid listings procedure will lead to a reduction in patient appointments.
Genamet's application solutions suite can be used by physicians to increase their revenue based on a comprehensive online presence for their clinic. Enhanced retention and referrals are feasible if doctors can strategize their online presence cost-effectively.
A model that relies exclusively on aggregators is not only unsustainable in the middle and long term, but also risky. Aggregators base their model like search engines, in displaying or listing search results based on the amount invested by a doctor in the aggregator’s “cost per appointment” model. This means that a doctor receives a patient only as long as he / she continues to invest in buying appointments from a aggregator. While it is a good model to get started, it is not a sustainable one. Use of aggregators to obtain a patient pipeline could mean that referrals / repeat patients might also end up using expensive aggregators to fix an appointment with the doctor.
The biggest handicap of an aggregator only model is the steep decline in bookings once the doctor weans away from an aggregator. The fall in appointment can be drastic. An “aggregator only” approach also means that the doctor simply does not have a sustained web presence that could have perhaps sustained for appointments from sources other than aggregators. Aggregators depend a lot on search engines placing them on a higher rank when potential patients search for doctors. This model is highly flawed and risky as they would be severely impacted if search engines start penalizing aggregators when compared with individual websites, a pattern which we see in the case of jobs search.
There have been widespread complaints from doctors using aggregators that the cost per appointment has gone up over the years, is unfair, does not prioritize experienced doctors and is patently unfair and unethical. At Genamet, we recommend a strategy of using a powerful web presence built by Genamet in conjunction with aggregator use. Over a longer period of time doctors build their own web presence due to which patients come to them directly, bypassing the need for aggregators. Genamet provides you with powerful and credible web presence that is sustainable and builds trust among patients.
One another big disadvantage of using aggregators to book appointments is Chinese investment in some of these aggregators. Personal data could be at jeopardy if they fall in the hands of the Chinese. Genamet is fully owned by Indian entrepreneurs and the data resides within India (Mumbai datacentre of AWS). There are also reports that aggregators solicit drug / medication orders from patients which can be seen by doctors as unethical. Genamet does not sell drugs / pharmaceuticals / medicines.
The Genamet appointment booking and scheduling system help doctors to confirm their schedule.
