🗂️ Research That Caught Our Eye

As part of their Healthcare Outlook Report, BDO looks at a number of technological opportunities healthcare practices should consider taking advantage of in 2024, including:

  • Introducing automations into your practice, for example automatic SMS reminders or auto payments processing
  • Bringing in new tools to streamline your practice, such as a Smart calendar to manage bookings and appointments.
  • Leveraging new data sources to drive better decision-making
  • Integrating virtual and in person care options for patients, for example telehealth

Practice management software like Halaxy that’s removes administration rather than just digitises it help practices take advantage of those opportunities, and helps to improve healthcare for everyone, everywhere.
