It’s becoming increasingly obvious as our team speaks to lab managers and owners of sleep labs, that there’s a big need for flexibility when it comes to their sleep lab management software. Although LabRetriever is fully customizable to the specific workflow of our customers, it also offers some standard, flexible features that are ‘nice perks’, especially when it comes to scheduling.
The business of sleep and ensuring quality of excellence in patient care isn’t as simple as getting a sleep test done. If it were, our development team would be quite bored! Instead they recognize the many facets of scheduling that need to be considered in order to efficiently run a lab; technician shifts, office visits, DME setups and calls, and sleep tests (to name a few!)
Take for example our tech scheduling. Our drag-and-drop method of getting a sleep study on the calendar makes it easy to schedule a patient, but what if the bed is open and there’s no tech scheduled for that evening? Can you imagine having a patient come in or having to call and reschedule at the last minute, because you don’t have someone available to administer the test?
Well, LabRetriever scheduling allows you to customize your view to include your locations, beds, AND techs, ensuring there is always one available. Take a look at the picture below:
Please note the techs scheduled on the 7th and 8th. They are easy to spot, because our calendar feature allows you to use color-coding and in this case they are in powder blue! In addition, the Pittsburgh tech has a small red icon indicating that Olivia is not a registered tech, so she cannot take care of Medicare patients.
In the blogs that follow, I’ll be focusing on more ways LabRetriever allows you to customize your database for the best, most efficient sleep lab software experience.
