5 STEPS TO CREATE A BETTER MEDICAL OFFICE SPACE: STEP 4

Design efficient office

Office configuration plays a huge role in office productivity. Every medical office has to be designed with a patient flow in mind. Do patients arrive at your office and flow smoothly from one point to another while getting the care and services they need? Or are patients, physicians and staffers frustrated by the way the office is run? To be able to assess the patients flow practices may need to actually time the patients as they move through the office and analyze it to generate solutions. To implement the solutions and to redesign the flow everyone must be involved. Patient flow is not up to the doctors, it’s up to the practice. It has to be a group effort and a focused leadership.
