Robotic Therapy Laser Helps Private Practices through Staffing Shortage

As we continue to push through the circumstances brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses across the country are feeling the squeeze of a national labor shortage. Private practices are no exception.

Amid staff quarantines, resignations, widespread burnout, and vaccination mandates for some health workers, 73% of medical practices ranked staffing as their biggest challenge heading into 2022.

Medical practice leaders are reporting high turnover along with difficulty hiring clinical and administrative positions. Due to staffing shortages, 76% of practices had to make operational changes last year.

Administrative, support, and service staff are responsible for tasks vital to practice operations. The difficulties of filling these positions are putting strain on other practice employees, including clinical staff, as they take on these responsibilities. This takes attention away from tasks that directly impact patient care, further compounding the operational inefficiencies resulting from staffing shortages.

Technologies that elevate patient care and improve practice productivity may be the answer to the staffing challenges that private practices are facing.

With this in mind, many physicians are adding robotic laser therapy services to their practices. This innovative technology helps improve practice productivity while satisfying patient demands for a drug-free and non-invasive solution to pain management and post-surgical healing.

With automatic applications offered by its distinctive robotized head, the Robotic M6 MLS® Therapy Laser eliminates the need for a dedicated technician, allowing doctors and staff to use their time more efficiently while patients are safely receiving treatment.

“My team loves that we can ‘set it and forget it!’ This is my favorite feature of the M6. My team sets that appropriate protocols and the robot does all the work. Therefore, this allows us to stay on top of our busy practice and perform 4-6 sessions per hour without sacrificing any part of patient care.”

Based on pre-set parameters, the Robotic M6 calculates the necessary energy emission and automatically distributes laser energy by evenly scanning the defined tissue area. Automatic and even application of laser energy provides consistent and accurate dosing leading to more predictable outcomes than stationary and manually operated lasers.

"We got good results [with my previous laser] but not as good as the robotic laser. For my patients that have had treatments from both [my previous laser] and the Robotic M6, they feel the treatment benefits last longer and are more immediate with the M6.”

The non-contact, hands-free, and unattended treatments sessions offered by the Robotic M6 can also help practices offer laser therapy treatments while remaining compliant with COVID-19 sanitation and social distancing guidelines.

With robotic laser therapy services, private practices are expanding their capabilities without compromising quality of care or staff productivity. Discover how your practice can benefit from automatic treatments from the most advanced therapeutic laser emission system.
