FAQs About Dermatology Virtual Assistants
How much does a virtual dermatology assistant cost?
Dermatologists are turning to remote staffing not only for its convenience but for huge payroll savings, too.
The average annual salary for an in-house dermatologist assistant is $77 an hour. But the cost to hire a virtual dermatology assistant is only $10 an hour. For a full-time worker, that’s a savings of more than $120,000 a year when you hire a remote employee!
The savings you’ll enjoy in payroll are just the beginning. When you hire an in-house employee, you can expect to pay between 1.25-1.5 times their salary to cover benefits. For example, an in-house employee with a $40,000 salary actually costs your office $50,000 – $60,000 each year once you factor in benefits like vacation time, paid time off, sick days, dental insurance, health insurance, and workers’ compensation insurance.
However, all of those costs are already included in a virtual dermatology assistant’s pay with MedVa. That $10 per hour covers everything, making it easier to budget for adding the staff your office requires to function at peak performance.
Work with the same remote employee every day
Great teams are built on strong relationships between staff members. When you work with a dermatologist assistant from MedVa, you’ll be working with the same person every day, so you and your staff will get to know your remote employee on a personal level. You’ll also be in contact with your virtual dermatology assistant as often as needed via phone call, video call, chat, and email, so you can communicate throughout the day and get to know each other just as if the employee were present in your office.
What happens if my VA doesn’t work out?
If for some reason you are unhappy with your remote dermatology assistant’s performance, personality, reliability, or any other factor, we will quickly address any issues and replace that VA with another one right away.
This is another benefit to working with a virtual employee rather than an in-house employee. In the United States, labor laws can prevent you from quickly and easily firing a staff member who is not performing up to your standards. In some states, it can take hours of work and ample documentation to let an employee go without fear of a lawsuit.
Because our dermatology virtual assistants work outside the U.S., they are not subject to U.S. labor laws. That means you can hire and fire at will, without the hassle.
How would a virtual dermatologist assistant work in my office?
Your virtual dermatology assistant will work seamlessly with your office staff just like they were sitting in the next room. Using secure remote access software, a dermatology VA anywhere in the world can tap into your computer network, phone system, and scheduling software. This is how they are able to answer your phones, respond to online inquiries, schedule appointments, file insurance claims, and more.
The way your dermatology virtual assistant works day to day is completely up to you. If you’d like your assistant to work during office hours answering phones, confirming appointments, and updating EHRs, that’s perfect. If you’d like them to work overnight to handle tasks like sending invoices, crafting emails, and filing insurance claims so you can walk through your door in the morning knowing everything’s been done overnight, that’s fine, too. Your dermatology VA can work any hours you like, day or night.
Virtual dermatology assistants can help you grow your practice
Dreaming of opening another location? Want to take on more patients and increase revenue growth? Often, the cost and hassle of finding new employees keep dermatologists’ dreams of scaling their practices on hold. But at the low cost of only $10 per hour, virtual dermatologist assistants are not only easy to hire but incredibly affordable, so you can scale at your own pace without the hefty payroll hike.
