To harness the true potential of your EHR, it is vital to include the right infrastructure for capturing data from four primary “parent categories”: surgical, non-surgical, retail, and non-retail. By categorizing products based on industry standards, you can gain insights into the sales and inventory management of various segments of your practice.
Understanding the nuances of your product offerings is key. Consider questions like: Do products require inventory tracking? Are they disposables? Are the sales associated with the surgical clinic, med spa, or retail store? Reviewing sales by category and managing inventory by business unit allows for efficient tracking and optimization of your practice’s resources.
Once the product categories are established, customization becomes possible through subcategories. These subcategories can include factors like gender, age, brand, and more. By utilizing subcategories, healthcare professionals can further analyze revenue by each specific subcategory. This level of granularity provides valuable insights and enables personalized targeting for better patient care and increased revenue.
Implementing and setting up your EHR correctly is the foundation for generating good, trusted, and actionable data. It enables healthcare professionals to make informed decisions, optimize sales and inventory processes, and enhance overall practice performance. Whether you are a new practice or an established one seeking a fresh start, investing time and effort into the right implementation and product categorization will unlock the true potential of your EHR.
