With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.

With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site. In this September 2023 story on choosing the right music to play in your practice, Ola Sars gives these tips:

Selecting the right soundtrack

Having the ability to customize and manage your playlist on demand is a valuable music service and feature. The right music welcomes and comforts patients while also providing your staff with a peaceful ambiance that reduces stress. However, the song selection must hit the mark for your primary patients.

For example, pediatricians should consider kids’ music, which can help to speed up perceived wait times and keep young patients feeling more comfortable. If your patients are mostly adults, familiar pop music provides an energetic and optimistic atmosphere while classical music offers a calmer, more serene waiting room experience. The soft melodies in classical pieces help lower the blood pressure and anxiety levels of your patients. If your practice sees a variety of age ranges, explicit-free filters are important when playing top 100 and popular hits.
