As a healthcare practitioner in private practice, one of your tasks on a monthly basis (if not daily) is the billing of your clients. If your practice is even slightly busy, you will need a software solution to handle the management of your clients, the tracking of appointments, the invoicing of these clients and the submission of each claim to medical aids. This is the case even if you have a receptionist to handle this for you. It is at this point that most healthcare practitioners consider practice management software.
How Do You Choose a Practice Management Software?
The challenge is how do you choose the right practice management software? Will you be trained on it? Will it be expensive? Can you actually use it after the training? What happens if you have questions after you have the practice management software running for a while in your practice?
Questions and decisions like this often result in many healthcare practitioners simply using Microsoft Word or Excel. It works and is simple enough to get a basic invoice done (especially with their standard invoice template).
In our experience, practice management software is often expensive and difficult to use. This has resulted in many healthcare practitioners considering and using traditional accounting software like Sage Pastel or Quickbooks, and worst yet, just Microsoft Word or Excel.
Why smeMetrics as your Practice Management Software?
It is for these many reasons that we decided to create smeMetrics a few years ago – it’s a simple, secure and online based practice management software. Coming from many years in the software development industry and having enough knowledge on the challenges of the healthcare practitioner industry (from my wife who is a Clinical Psychologist in private practice), we believed that we had a good chance to create something of value that our customers would love and find useful. The goal is not to become the next Facebook or Google, but rather just to provide a great product that our customers love to use and find real benefit from.

Practice Management Software Following up on Overdue Invoices?
I know! It sounds unbelievable. But one of the key benefits of using smeMetrics as your practice management software is that we not only make it easy for you you to make your appointments and generate your invoices, but we also take a keen interest in making sure that you get paid for every single invoice.
For us, debt collection is the final step and it’s one that most of our clients don’t get to because of the proactive approach we take to getting the outstanding invoices paid.
We use the following process with our clients:
1. The invoices are sent out much sooner since it’s simpler to do. This results in the clients being expected to pay sooner, and is much more professional so they take it seriously.
2. All emails comes from smeMetrics, so the client has the perception that the billing is outsourced (but the practitioner is actually doing the invoices, sending it out, etc.)
3. For all overdue invoices, the software automatically follows up with the client (with two different messages at two different stages) and reminds them of making the payment and letting them know that the account might be handed over for debt collection if it’s not paid.
We find that when our clients follow this process, their outstanding debt is already reduced significantly. And this process is 100% free, and included in the monthly software price anyway.

It normally takes a few interactions (referral from a friend/colleague, emails, seeing us at workshops/conferences or phone calls) in order to make a decision on whether smeMetrics would be the right fit for your practice. We understand that completely. Because of this, we often send potential clients more information on the software and how the software can help you in your practice. This is done using daily emails over a week. After you’ve reviewed that information, you’re in a better position to make an informed decision as to whether smeMetrics will make a difference in your practice or not. If you’re still not convinced after receiving this information, we can even setup a free consultation at your practice or do a video call over Skype to show you the software in person.
