When it comes to patient check in, although not quite the stone-age, many lean engineers state that it is a workflow which has not been updated in over 40 years.
Patient check in is a major source of collecting patient health information and consequently results in a large amount of paper work. A paper brings with it, its own inefficiency and costs resulting in a cascade failure, ultimately affecting care outcomes and patient safety.
The outdated workflow pinches your revenue cycle especially in the era of high deductible-high co-pay plans. You also have the onus of meeting the expectations of your patients- the new age digital consumers – for innovative and hassle free services.
An automated patient check-in system will help you streamline your check-in process, but is that really enough for the optimum ROI from your initiative? Does it take care of providing you a complete fix for the inefficiencies in the workflow, and accelerating your revenue cycle while still providing a world-class experience for your patients?
This paper discusses the factors you have to consider while choosing your digital patient check-in software to completely modernize the workflow while ensuring optimum ROI for your initiative.
