We are excited to announce a new technology to modernize our patient intake process. We have partnered with Phreesia to allow patients to pre-register for appointments prior to arrival, even in the comfort of their own home. The process is simple, patients will receive a registration prompt with their appointment reminder via text message or email.
With Phreesia Mobile, patients can complete their registration from wherever they feel most comfortable and safe—at home, in their car or from another personal space. They can also update their clinical and demographic information, take a photo to store in their patient record, capture images of their driver’s license and insurance card, sign forms and policies, and pay copays and outstanding balances—all from the privacy and ease of their own device.
Phreesia has been rated #1 in Patient Intake Management by KLAS in 2022 and Best in KLAS four years running.
This new feature will be a phased implementation beginning with patients of Dr. Marcum, Dr. Banks, Dr. Nash and Dr. Boucher. For more information, please contact your provider’s office receptionist.
