As the hub of a busy medical office, you have demands placed on you for providing information and support to the physicians and staff members in your office. What if you could perform this part of your job more efficiently so that you could spend more of your time helping patients? You can — by creating a portal site on your office's intranet by using Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services.
A portal site can be used by you to consolidate and manage online information and resources in one centralized location that physicians and staff members can easily access. To help you quickly implement a portal site on your intranet, Microsoft has developed a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services template designed specifically for a doctor's office.
By using this template, you can create a SharePoint Web site to share schedules and contact information, upcoming events and meetings, and important office documents. You can customize this site for resources specific to your practice. You can even add links to your internal billing and patient appointment applications, effectively making your site a centralized location for efficiently managing your office.
Use the following template and supporting information to help you create a Windows SharePoint Services Web site for your medical office.
