ADVICE & HUMOR
Dr T,I love your software, but the camera feature in your platform is ruining all of the efficiencies I have gained to date.We give them the drchrono Check-In app to input their demographics and they end up sitting in the waiting room taking selfies! I even caught my office manager joining them…I didn’t chastise him because the picture actually looked pretty good, but that’s beside the point.I’m the doctor; I shouldn’t be the one waiting for patients in the exam room. How do I kindly tell my patients to stop this selfie madness? Also, what do you think about adding filters to pictures taken in drchrono (a la Instagram)?
– Marginally Photogenic Doctor
Dear Marginally Photogenic,First, stop, look at yourself in the mirror and repeat “this is not my fault.” Our app was intended to make checking-in fun and
easy, but we never anticipated patients would find the camera feature so appealing. This was our mistake; in a world of Instagram and Facebook, we should have known that the waiting room would have turned into a haven for selfies…Onwards and upwards…while we can’t remove the camera feature (it is a critical tool for many of our physicians), we can advise you to use “un-friendly” lighting in your waiting room. Remember, fluorescent or extremely dim lighting never did anyone any favors…Best,
