The most important thing to look at when you need a customer relationship management system (CRM) is whether or not it is specifically intended for health care practices. There are many systems out there, but healthcare requires different reports, contact with customers, and cross-referencing abilities. In addition, it’s important to have the support that you can call on that understands your needs and health care system requirements.
Once you’ve met those basics, it’s time to look at what the CRM provides those – and more. You’ll want to consider operating systems, devices that you can use to access it, cost, scalability, and support. Consider what you need, and what will help you marry your systems.
