Outsourcing administrative office tasks to a trained Medical Virtual Assistant is a viable solution for doctors in private practice who spend too much time on documentation. Healthcare outsourcing has been growing because of its proven benefits to the industry.

The adage holds true for many aspects of business: time is of the essence.

Medical Virtual Assistants are the secret to getting your time back so you can focus on providing quality care to patients.

Let’s take a look at the 5 benefits of adding trained Medical Virtual Assistants to your practice.

5 Benefits of Adding Trained Medical Virtual Assistants to Your Practice


Focus on Live Patient Care

Private practice physicians have been challenged by the increasing demand for high-quality, patient-oriented, and timely documentation. However, the increasing demand for documentation tasks has been associated with the growing concern of time pressure and low job satisfaction among doctors.

They spend an average of 3 hours daily completing documentation tasks – enough to see about eight or nine more patients.

By freeing doctors from administrative tasks and enhancing the value of learning by practice, outsourcing these tasks to a trained Medical Virtual Assistant allows the doctor to focus on providing quality care to their patients.


Save Time and Money

One of the biggest benefits of adding trained Medical Virtual Assistants to your practice is the ability to reduce expenses and have more time in the day.

Virtual Assistants can save practices up to 70% in operational costs compared to an in-house employee.

Outsourcing can significantly reduce the costs for office supplies, furniture, and computer hardware, which in turn allows you to reinvest in patient services, research, and amenities to enhance patient care.


Handled by Professionals

Your practice needs to hire a skilled professional who is ready to take on a job of any complexity and who has vast experience and training in carrying out specific tasks.

Keeping control of the core areas of your practice, but being flexible with the tasks that you can delegate, such as referrals, inbound and outbound phone calls, insurance verification, prior authorization, and other back-office tasks.

Global Medical’s Virtual Assistants are medical professionals and have graduated from our medical training program. They are trained in the most common medical tasks for practices as well as for HIPAA compliance.


Enhances Patient Experience

One of the top complaints from patients is waiting time, which can leave patients unhappy, who never return or complain about the customer service they received in that clinic.

Outsourcing your billing and incoming calls can also help in queue reduction to improve the patient experience.

By inspecting the eligibility and completing prior authorizations, your practice can guarantee coverage and provide correct information to patients.

Global Medical VAs can manage your incoming calls, billing-related calls and deal with appointment setting, prescription refill requests, and other patient needs. Outsourcing these services can help enhance the patient experience.


Eliminate The Overwhelm and Reduce Stress

Anyone that has worked in a medical office is familiar with the intense hustle and bustle of everyday activities.

Regardless of medical specialty, running a medical practice comes with a wide range of tasks that must be fulfilled in a timely manner.

Because of this, it’s easy to see why staff members can feel overwhelmed, stressed, and overworked.

Medical Virtual Assistants allow you to affordably ease the workload on your staff and doctors, which in turn will result in a more efficient practice.
