Despite growing interest in third party vendors, most physicians stick with their current electronic medical record provider when they decide to offer a patient portal, according to a new report from KLAS.
Those interested in third-party vendors, may want to look into Jardogs’ stand-alone patient kiosk. With features that benefit both the provider and the patient, the kiosks fit unobtrusively into a physicians practice. The kiosk is customizable, offering client-branding integration, identification options and a question editor by department or appointment type.
A kiosk can reduce administrative workflow and standardize the registration process. It can also integrate with existing electronic health records and help with the collection of Meaningful Use data. They can capture photos to help with identity verification.
Not only do the kiosks give patients a quick way to access a summary of office visits, appointments and procedures, but also allow patients to pay their co-pay via credit card at the kiosk. They offer online appointment scheduling (with automated reminders) and online prescription refill requests.
