You’ve been practicing for years already and you’ve established yourself in the community. Perhaps your practice is still just starting out but already growing.
Your patient list will continue to grow because there’s a HUGE gap in the doctor to patient ratio here in the Philippines.
You will get thousands of patients and there will come a point that you won’t be able to remember everybody’s names, even their faces, let alone the prescriptions you made for them nor the diagnosis you made.
It’s inevitable. You’ll have a TON of patients.
Then one day, a patient calls you up and asks you about what you prescribed to him.
Your patient would expect that you’d remember him and you’d want to be able to show your patient that you actually do remember and care for him.
But you think to yourself…
“Sinu nga ba ulit ito?” (Who’s this patient again?)
and you end up asking yourself or out-loud…
“Ano ulit yung naprescribe ko sa inyo?” (What did I prescribe to you again?)
For many doctors, that’s already embarrassing.

So, I’m in a restaurant and a patient calls me, asks me a question and I’m thinking to myself… “uh… who are you again?” It’s not your fault, it’s just that you see so many patients day to day, it’s impossible to remember every voice/face, let alone what you prescribed or what your diagnosis was. That’s why you need SeriousMD. Join the revolution. https://rplg.co/6e9d1a30 #TechieNotRequired
How about this?
“Doc, tumawag si (patient name), ano ulit yung procedure niya?”
“Sinu nga pala siya? Ano yung sinulat ko diyan?”
“Doc, wala yung record dito pero sabi niya”
“Tatawag muna ako sa kabilang clinic. Babalikan kita.”
I’ve personally heard those stories hundreds of times already!
You Need a Patient Records Management System
Personally, I think every doctors needs a patient records management system.
A real, legit, EMR system that actually values your notes and your workflow.
I’m not saying this because we want to push SeriousMD. SeriousMD is just fine because of the referrals we get from doctors that love the system. We don’t do hard sells and we damn sure don’t send people to your departments, to take your photos without permission (or if you disagree, the person would go to the board and take your picture there) and put them up on the site to make it look like they have users. I think you know what I’m talking about here. *wink
Anyway, I’m advocating it because I’ve seen doctors in action use it. I’ve seen the difference.
I’ve seen the change in the clinics I’ve visited, before and after.
I’ve spoken with over a thousand doctors personally and I’ve seen their faces light up. How they’re now able to go home earlier, finish clinic on time, not have pains in their hands for writing the same prescriptions over and over. We’ve also received countless messages of how it has helped them and changed their lives. How it has made things better for their patients.
That’s why I think every doctor needs to use a legitimate patient records management system like SeriousMD.
A Mindset Shift
You’ve been practicing for so long and you have this process already practically set in stone. It’s definitely going to be a huge problem to integrate a patient records management system, right?
Well, yes and no.
Yes, because anything new is already associated to it being hard. I’m an adult just like you so I can attest to this, but a lot of the things we consider hard, isn’t really hard. It’s just us being lazy or we’re just making an excuse to not make any changes because we’re not 100% committed to the idea… yet.
No, because it just takes a simple mindset shift. Once you decide to do something, you find a way to make it work. It’s like you studied medicine for years to be a doctor. YOU WANTED IT. You found a way. It takes a shift and you will find a way to make it happen. It’s one of the reasons why we built SeriousMD to fit easily into your workflow.
It’s Your Turn
I’ve heard stories from SeriousMD users talking about their experiences. It’s always fun to discuss their different paths to eventually getting start using a patient management records system AKA electronic medical records system, or better known as an EMR.
How about you? What’s your story? What led you here to this page?
