As an aesthetic provider, your mind is focused on patient care. Unfortunately, staying on top of your inventory of products, tools, and supplies can get pushed to the back burner. Medical inventory management is too often an afterthought, feeling like a time-consuming, overwhelming job that nobody wants to do. However, it does not have to be this way.
Quality Practice Management Software (PMS) does many things for your office including accounting, scheduling, and marketing. One additional benefit of PMS is its ability to help with inventory control. Designed for the modern healthcare provider, the integrated inventory control tool is an effective way to keep track of stock items and upcoming purchases, saving your staff time, reducing errors, lowering costs, and increasing profit. The four key ways that PMS can make a significant improvement in your inventory control include:
Practice Management Software will quickly tell you what inventory you have on hand and alert you when an item is running low. From any computer, staff can check if an item is in stock or look up a price. Additionally, as new inventory arrives, each item will be scanned in, immediately updating the inventory list. The inventory control feature monitors stock levels in real-time, preventing the embarrassment of running out of an essential item.
Time and again, each provider will go through the same set of supplies every time they repeat a particular procedure. For ease, a procedure preference card can be created. Instead of staff entering each of the items used, one by one, the employee only needs to scan the preset preference card. This will then tick off all of the tools and products normally used, with the options to manually add any additional items.
One advantage of PMS inventory control is its ability to predict upcoming holes in your supply closet. Not only will you know when an item is suddenly running low, but your PMS can also be set to remind you which items need to be ordered on a routine basis. Using periodic automatic replenishment (PAR), you can set the minimum and the maximum number of items to keep in stock.
An easy mistake for any medical office is letting the lesser-used products expire on the shelf. Your PMS will track expiration dates, helping to prevent them from being dispensed to clients. This also tells you which products are not moving, and ensures you know what items need reordering.
Your PMS system is capable of integration with supply vendors, making it easier than ever to replace low stock. Routine orders are taken care of with PAR. Then, when you are ready to purchase specific items, you will have a direct connection to your supplier’s catalog, eliminating tedious searches or failed attempts at reaching busy sales reps. Electronic receipts and purchase records can be kept in the desired location for simple access later on.
One benefit of an accurate inventory system is detailed weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly inventory/sales reports, ready at the touch of a button. Not only will your PMS system report supply usage, but this integrated software can also further break down inventory movement using multiple variables, such department or staff member. Purchases can be recorded in each patient’s electronic health record, then easily accessed for future sales or marketing events. A PMS system will help you get the most out of your inventory, telling you how well the retail side of your practice is really doing.
When considering a PMS system, be careful to choose the one that offers integration for inventory control. BoomerangFX is a comprehensive, flexible PMS system, designed by a doctor specifically for medical practice. Remember, your reputation in patient care is one of the most important assets your office has. Protect your brand and your finances through quality inventory control.

The last thing on your mind may be your practice software because, after all, you are busy with patients. However, if you are using an outdated system, you are no doubt spending too much time managing the practice instead of nurturing your practice. A modern, effective PMS will get everything your clinic needs in a smooth and efficient manner. So how do you know when it is time to change your medical spa PMS? Here are seven signs the time is now:
Does your MedSpa need more than one software program to get everything done? If you are using several programs that are incompatible with each other, just to have some sense of automation, it’s time for a new PMS.
BoomerangFX offers a robust PMS complete with a suite for scheduling, inventory, EMR, and marketing – everything you need to get the job done with a single, integrated software.
If your front office staff is slowly being buried under endless stacks of papers, files, and sticky notes, your practice is not running efficiently. With an overload of paper, reports get lost, reminders overlooked, and patient forms quickly get out of hand.
BoomerangFX helps your office go paperless, saving you the cost of printing, copying, and storing these documents. We help you keep everything in its place including records, billing, and marketing.
Updates on old software eventually cease. Even when an update does come out, downloading and installing it is complicated and time-consuming.
Software updates with BoomerangFX are automatic, so you never have to worry about making changes or struggling with a slow download.
Do you have your office IT guy on speed dial? If he is the only person you have to support your staff through software glitches or server trouble, your practice will thank you for new PMS.
BoomerangFX offers 24/7 support on the phone, via email, or instant message. Our team will walk you and your staff members through any issues, small or large, if they are in the building or working remotely. Our job is to keep your practice flowing at 100%.
Chances are, if you have a server tucked away in your office, then you probably know how devastating it can be if something goes wrong. The stress of protecting your server falls directly on you. You must ensure it’s in a secure location or you risk a security/data breach or losing all of your data should there be a flood, fire, or natural disaster.
BoomerangFX offers cloud-based PMS, keeping all of your data and patient files encrypted and safe. If you are in a patient exam room, or at a conference across the country, you can easily log into your practice site and work get your work done.
Without an integrated, all-encompassing PMS, gathering together your monthly reports take up your valuable time and risk being incomplete with lackluster accounting.
With BoomerangFX, you can meticulously monitor all aspects of your practice, including the finances. Create customized reports using real-time information that even include expenditure and revenue forecasts.
No one wants the job of manually checking inventory so the estimate of supplies or products is often inaccurate. Unfortunately, poor inventory control can mean frustration, embarrassment, and a loss in sales revenue.
BoomerangFX has a full suite of Inventory Management Software, designed to precisely manage your stock levels of treatment supplies and retail items. As an item is used or a new shipment arrives, the inventory count is immediately updated. Staff members can check prices and availability of retail products from any computer.
Do any of the above sound all too familiar? BoomerangFX has a free demo waiting for you, so take a minute to see what our Practice Management Software can do for your medical spa or aesthetic clinic.
Turning leads into patients is a vital part of any medical practice. Sometimes, however, this process can feel almost impossible. By breaking the conversion process into small steps, turning leads into patients can easily be mastered by any aesthetic clinic.
Prospective patients need to see your office and remember the brand. Think about the demographics of your customers, their most desired procedures, and the impression you want to sell. Keep the dialogue you use online and on social media in a conversational tone that speaks to the lay patient, while always remembering your target audience. Patients that cannot relate to you will not choose your practice.
If it has been more than two years since your website was updated, it is probably out-of-date. As the inaugural stop for potential patients, first impressions mean everything. Your website must clearly tell visitors who you are and what you offer, delivering inviting and eye-catching content. This information will entice the visitor to stay a while, turning them into a lead. Getting your visitor to sign up for more information provides their name, email address, and demographics – ready to use during future marketing campaigns.
Include easy links for:
o Subscribing to your blog
o Downloading content
o Asking a question
o Requesting additional information
o Scheduling a consultation
Your marketing strategy should begin with a clear understanding of the intended audience. Direct your email marketing at the right group of potential patients with lead segmentation. Use the information you gathered from your website. This patient data, gathered patient interactions on your website, will give you the knowledge to send targeted emails to those interested in a specific treatment or technique.
There are many opportunities to fill your website with informative content. Write blogs that are useful to your reader, using keywords and search engine optimization (SEO) techniques. Before/after photographs and videos will keep your content unique, promote your brand, and grab a visitor’s attention. Utilize the E.A.T. theory (expertise, authority, and trust) to work when trying to determine quality content that will rise to the top of a Google search.
Although many of the methods for converting leads into patients can be done with little cost to you, paid advertising is still a must. Paid media is extremely effective at generating leads, sparking conversations, and ultimately, bringing new patients into your office. Monitor your advertising choices carefully, ensuring a good return on your investment (ROI). Detailed monthly reports will be necessary to see which ads reach your target audience and create lucrative leads.
Running a busy aesthetic practice, it can be hard to find the time for marketing and lead conversion. This is where a good Practice Management Software (PMS) comes in. The adaptable software will curate your patient database, automate lead-segregated emails, keep meticulous inventory, order supplies, and deliver customizable reports.
One of the key features of a good PMS is staged tracking and conversion. BoomerangFX will track unclosed leads, unclosed consults and ensure you reach out to them automatically, increasing your lead and consult conversion is optimized. Similarly, BoomerangFX’s CRM (client relationship management) algorithm will notify you (and the client) when active clients (e.g. Botox, filler or laser and energy patients) are due for their next treatment, which leads to an increase in sales!
A PMS system will tackle all of these and more, giving you added time to focus on lead conversion and growing your practice that track all the right information about your leads.

A modern aesthetic clinic, such as a cosmetic practice or medical spa, no longer has to make just any Practice Management Software (PMS) work. There are many PMS systems made specifically for this type of practice, however, they are not all the same. A cosmetic clinic or medical spa should choose a PMS with the following features:
Look for PMS that makes scheduling patients quick and easy. It is important to keep in mind, PMS for the aesthetic practice needs to be able to handle multiple providers across more than one office while allowing many users at one time. This will keep your office moving smoothly and decrease errors such as double booking. A call tracking and call management system is a plus.
When adding a new PMS, make sure it will integrate with your existing patient data and electronic health records (EHR) so no information is lost during the transition. Although in the past you may have had more than one system on board, a new PMS means everything will be consolidated. Your new software should be equipped for the data migration process.
Without customizable, comprehensive reports, a PMS cannot be effective. The system you choose should have dozens of premade templates, with the option to create unique reports. Patient documents, compliance forms, and staff documentation forms should be simple to find and print. Your PMS should also store your data and forms, easily accessed with a user-friendly dashboard.
Purchase PMS with a private accounting suite designed for automated billing, tracking delinquent accounts, and creating quotes. A system designed for the aesthetic practice will handle point of sale (POS), inventory control, and track commission. Your PMS accounting suite will also make the bookkeeping for your office expenditures a breeze.
Automated inventory control will maintain all of your supplies and retail items. Choose a PMS that allows staff to check volume/price from any workstation in the office. A quality PMS can alert you when an item is low or automatically place an order with your favorite vendor, ensuring you never run out of anything.
Find PMS made for aesthetic marketing. It should allow you to keep in touch with existing patients while attracting new clients and turn leads into customers. This software should be able to use the data collected from your patients and site visitors to curate email campaigns. This system can automatically send follow-up emails and appointment reminders.
Your PMS should have a proven patient retention management module, featuring a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool. This will include an effective communication system to ensure patients are satisfied and will return. Patient reminders, birthday greetings, appointment confirmation, and emails/newsletters generated around their unique needs.
Your newly purchased PMS needs to include a support network that can be reached any time, day or night. Beginning with training, the PMS should get your staff up and running, while hosting videos and FAQs for additional education. Help should be a click or phone call away for the life of your system. Invest in a PMS that offers ongoing, automatic, and free software updates.

So you’re considering the purchase of practice management software (PMS) for your aesthetic office, to streamline your team’s daily tasks and improve office efficiency. But, choosing the right PMS is proving to be quite an intimidating task. The decision doesn’t have to be difficult, as long as you keep these four key factors in mind:
It is important to choose PMS designed specifically for your particular medical specialty. Reach out to other physicians within your specialty to see how well they like their own software. When choosing PMS, ask if the new system will integrate with your existing electronic medical records system (EMR). Take advantage of an in-office demo, to ensure your staff feels comfortable with the system before you commit. With a good idea of your practice’s daily workflow, you can easily determine how user-friendly the PMS interface really is.
Staff not only need easy access to your PMS in the office, but they may also need to login after hours from other locations. The right system for your aesthetic practice should be available whenever and wherever it is needed. Cloud-based PMS can be accessed by any team member with an internet connection, no matter where they happen to be. You also should be able to determine who gets access to specific modules, keeping patient and practice information safe and secure.
Before you start searching for the right system for you and your team, you need to know how much you’re willing to spend. Keep in mind, the total price includes the license to use the platform, as well as all training costs. Your PMS budget should also include maintenance, upgrades, patches, and cybersecurity. Remember, PMS is priced per month and some companies charge more based on the number of providers. While there may be a major price difference between vendors, never let cost be the only factor in this decision. If the price point is higher than what you were initially wanting to spend, consider the amount you will save with additional features.
No-one wants to get stuck with a frozen screen or system meltdown. The best PMS system will have continuous support, preferably both online and via telephone. Select a provider that offers 24/7 online assistance online, to get real-time support. Phone support is important to keep your business flowing smoothly too!
