4 Easy Apps for Micro-Efficiencies

17 Mar, 2018

Micro-efficiencies are tools or small process improvements that solve time-stealing problems.

We sort of made that word up.  After all, the word efficiency already exists – so why would we need a subclassification? It’s not very often that a made-up word would make it into the list of Lab Tactical’s digital vocabulary, closely governed by both Grammarly and our CEO!

Yet somehow we slipped this one through for the blog post and here’s why we think you should add more Micro-efficiencies to your life…

Using smart devices is where you’ll likely find the most opportunity to deploy micro-efficiencies, starting with your smartphone. Now, there are a ton of examples of how your smartphone can make your life easier. It’s choosing the right apps or software are most helpful that can be a challenge.

It’s likely you’re using your device for your job role in your company, even if they don’t reimburse you for it! More business is done through smartphones than ever before.

25 Jan, 2017

There is one thing every HME provider has in common: the delivery and/or set-up of medical equipment. While the products and services may vary from provider to provider, there are certainly some best practices that come with this type of patient interaction no matter the product or service line.

Bringing medical equipment into a person’s home and integrating it into daily life can be a challenge. When incorporating a new piece of equipment into their world, most patients want to understand a few fundamental things about their continuum of care. We recommend cracking the communication code with patients by focusing on three key areas to guide patient expectations:

Lifestyle Expectations

Whether it’s an elderly person looking to maintain independence, a dad who needs to control his sleep apnea, or a complex rehab patient who is adjusting to a whole new way of life, in many cases, your patient is coming to you because something significant has changed. Focus communication efforts on guiding your patient through the process so they have a good idea of what might be coming next in their healthcare journey.
