Index  1 5 TECH TRENDS  | Driving Family Practice Success Family physicians play a pivotal role in the healthcare system, but it is becoming increasingly difficult for family practices to stay profitable. Mounting industry pressures like declining reimbursements, ICD-10, escalating costs, and rising administrative burdens are distracting physicians from patient care and causing widespread physician dissatisfaction. In fact, in Deloitte’s 2013 Survey of U.S. Physicians, primary care providers emerged as the least satisfied with practicing medicine (41% dissatisfied). 1  As family physicians look for ways to gain footing, taking steps like adopting new technologies or replacing legacy systems are key to reducing administrative burdens and freeing up more time for patient care. In the following report, you’ll learn about five critical technologies that help family care physicians run their practices more efficiently, profitably, and enjoyably.   1 Deloitte 2013 Survey of U.S. Physicians, http://www.deloitte.com/assets/Dcom-UnitedStates/Local%20Assets/Documents/us_chs_2013SurveyofUSPhysicians_031813.pdf   2 5 TECH TRENDS  | Driving Family Practice Success  Shifting to The Cloud to Reduce Costs & Gain Convenience The overhead of a typical family practice normally runs at about 60% of revenues, 2  so it’s important to choose the most cost-effective healthcare IT solutions, such as practice management systems, electronic health records (EHR), and others. Cloud-based solutions are becoming increasingly popular due to their relative affordability, along with their heightened adaptability and accessibility. With cloud-based solutions, family physicians gain three key benefits:ã Users can access the software with only a computer and Internet connection, so there are no expensive hardware purchases or yearly maintenance fees required. As a result, practices avoid the hefty up-front and long-term ownership costs typically associated with client-server systems. ã Cloud-based software delivers automatic updates that integrate seamlessly with the system, so practices avoid losing productivity during long downloads or trouble-shooting phone calls. In addition to being simple, cloud-based updates are also more affordable (and often free).ã Users can access the software 24/7, at home or on the go. They get work done where and when it works best for them, not just when they’re in the office.Cloud-based technologies have the potential to reduce operating costs, while making family practices more prepared for change and more productive outside of the office. 2  AAFP, Family Practice Management, “The 12-Step Way to Reduce Practice Expenses: Part 1, Stafng Efciencies,” March 2010. http://www.aafp.org/fpm/2010/0300/p38.html.
