Crazy Productivity Tips that Actually Work!

Everything from music to Facebook, the secret to productivity is in the very things we are asked to avoid!Check out these tips on increasing productivity, the crazy way…

1. Listen to music, dude!
If you have a headset on, maybe it won’t go down well with the boss. But then, according to a study at the University of Windsor, Canada, listening to music during work helps people finish their work faster and with a better quality than those who don’t. But if your boss gets to see your head banging before he sees the great work you have accomplished, don’t blame it on us if he fires you!

2. Facebook your way to glory…
Mindless tasks such as checking out those nice red pop ups on that blue Facebook ribbon could trick your brain into thinking that it has done something worthwhile. Simply put, it gives you a brain boost. Moreover, a study by Evolvon data from Fortune 500 companies showed a correlation between output per employee and usage of social networks. According to the study, “Employees who belonged to more than five social networks had a 1.6 percent higher sales conversion than their counterparts and a 2.8 percent lower average call time.”

Before you get confused, let’s tell you that social media helps build more rewarding networks that assist in closing sales and generating leads more efficiently. But unless you are in the marketing field, Facebook and the likes could prove to be a distraction. Be smart and keep them to the minimum!

3. Do something impossible
Remember the game of Truth or Dare we all played at some point in life? Doing a daring or impossible task makes other tasks comparatively easier to achieve. By overwhelming the brain with an impossible task, we can condition it into thinking that any other task (especially the loads of work you are piled up with!) is easier to accomplish. It is a great way to increase brain capacity. So the next time you are handed a task which you think is hard, turn to your friend or colleague and ask him to give you a dare before setting out to finish your business! 

4. Use technology to steal some nap time ;)
We all know that a short ten-minute nap increases productivity. Let technology do the talking and streamline your tasks using productivity apps, reminders and schedulers. That way, you can have more time to do the napping. But mind you, don’t sleep through your entire work day or else that will be the only thing you will be left with to do!!!

Working in the night shift? Here's how you can be double productive! -Avontix

Waking up and stretching at 4 PM. Having breakfast around 6 PM, rushing to office at 8 PM, when others are having a cozy dinner with family. Is this you?
Although there will be initial hiccups in adjusting to the night world, with time we understand that night shift work can be as smooth as day shift, provided we take care of few things.
Train your mind: The first and foremost feeling that we have to inculcate in us is that we are not doing anything different from routine. We ought to get used to and train our mind that night shift life is similar to that of the day shift life. With this. it gets much simpler for us to get accustomed to the new lifestyle. Winning our mind is winning half the battle.
Eat healthy: Work schedule affects our eating habits and vice versa. With sudden changes in work timings, our eating pattern gets disturbed and this results in health disorders which in turn reduce our productivity.

Location isn’t a Matter for Coding and RCM -Avontix

The technological developments in the healthcare management industry have facilitated and increased the outsourcing of medical coding and RCM among many healthcare facilities. The healthcare facilities need not bother about from where the support for their RCM and medical coding jobs is coming from. What they need to think about is only if these service providers have the latest technology, training and subject expertise. These days most of the outsourcing companies are well equipped with high-speed internet connectivity, coding and RCM software with security features that make the importance of the location of the service provider negligible.
The lower reimbursement rates and diminishing margins are forcing the different healthcare facilities to think for ways to reduce costs. One of the best ways for hospitals and other facilities to minimize costs is outsourcing their medical coding jobs along with their revenue cycle management. The significant task for a hospital is to identify …
