No matter if you are in a small group practice, hospitalist group or multispecialty practice, you need to create call schedules for covering providers. Additionally, you need the means to expedite communication between providers, or enable staff to quickly contact the provider “on call”. There is no better application for accomplishing this than AMION from doximity.com
One assigns an provider or staff member to develop the schedule and there are a number of templates and scheduling tools that facilitate construction of the coverage schedule. Once constructed the schedule can be accessed via the online portal or a mobile application. The on call schedule can be displayed in a daily, week or month view and lists the on call providers along with their contact information.
Another nice feature of the application is that it can be used by providers or staff to securely message the on call provider. One can send a page to a pager, or message any provider that has the AMION application installed on their smartphone. The receiving provider receives a notification along with a message alert. This makes it possible for providers to consider abandoning their pagers in favor of just using their smartphones with the messaging feature of the application
All of the above for just $349 per year for each group subscription! Awesome!!!
