One way you can upgrade your process is by automating appointment reminders. This is a great way to increase efficiency without sacrificing patient care or wasting your staff’s time. Automating appointment reminders allows clinicians and administrators to set up automated emails that can be sent directly to patients before their appointments, reminding them of when they need to show up. This helps ensure that all appointments are attended on time, improving patient outcomes while reducing no-shows.

Another great way to upgrade your process is by implementing an interactive tablet-based kiosk for patient check-ins. This makes the check-in process simpler for providers and patients alike, as all information regarding the appointment can be found in one convenient location.

This allows patients to quickly sign in independently without waiting in line at a reception desk or speaking with staff members. This simplifies the entire process and reduces wait times significantly! It also improves accuracy since all patient information is stored securely within the system. The interactive kiosk also allows you to customize forms with specific questions related to each patient’s unique needs or preferences and add in their insurance information, ensuring that all relevant information is collected before the appointment starts so that there are no surprises during the session.
