If you’re like most medical professionals, you’re probably feeling stretched thin. You may be wondering how you can possibly take on any more work. The answer: delegate! Many tasks in a medical practice can be effectively handled by a virtual assistant. In this blog post, we will discuss the delegation process and explain what you need to know in order to work with your virtual medical assistant successfully. Let’s get started.

What Is A Medical Virtual Assistant?  
A medical virtual assistant is a professional who provides administrative and clinical support to healthcare providers. Medical virtual assistants are usually independent contractors who work remotely. This means that they can provide their services to practices located anywhere in the world.

Which Tasks Can Be Delegated To A Medical Virtual Assistant?  
There are many tasks that can be delegated to an MVA. Some of the most common include:

– appointment scheduling
– patient communication
– charting
– billing and coding
– claim submission
– social media marketing

Before you can delegate, however, you need to know what tasks you have and what doing them entails.

How To Choose Which Tasks To Delegate  
When you’re trying to decide which tasks to delegate, it’s important to consider a few factors:

– How much time does the task take?
– How important is the task?
– How complex is the task?
– Do you enjoy doing the task?
-Is it possible to simplify or automate the task

Once you know where you stand,  you can start making a list of tasks to delegate. In your list, make notes of the process required for each task and any special instructions. This will be helpful when you’re training your MVA. Also, make sure to create standard operating procedures (SOPs) for all your tasks. This will ensure that everything is done correctly and consistently. Your MVA can help you with that.

The Delegation Process  
Now that you know what tasks can be delegated and which ones you want to delegate, it’s time to start the delegation process. The first step is to find a medical virtual assistant who is a good fit for your practice. You can hire a virtual assistant yourself, or work through an agency like Virtual Nurse Rx. Once you’ve found someone, the next step is to train them. This includes going over your SOPs and giving them any other instructions they need. If you’re working with Virtual Nurse Rx, we’ll do the training for you. This will save a bit more time on your end.

Once they are trained, it’s time to let them loose! Of course, you’ll want to check in from time to time to make sure everything is going smoothly. But, for the most part, you can sit back and relax while your MVA handles the tasks you delegated.

Final Thoughts  
Working with a medical virtual assistant can be a game-changer for your practice. When done correctly, the delegation process is smooth and stress-free.
