What’s Wrong with this Picture?
It congers up uncomfortable experiences; it’s stressful; it’s old technology; it just doesn’t make sense in the 21st century. Who do you know that can’t wait to fill out forms at a doctor’s office?
Patients expect and prefer technology these days, especially young professionals, and they will let their friends know their doctor is high tech. Filling out forms with PatientStudio fits perfectly into their lifestyles – of smart phones, computers, email, messaging and instant communication.
PatientStudio is much less stressful. Most of your concerns have been alleviated before the appointment – you just have to make it to the office on time.
Here’s why. Patients can complete their forms at their own pace, without the pressure of other patients looking over their shoulder as they take out an insurance card, driver’s license or notes.
In the privacy of their home, they log onto a secure and encrypted page with the doctor’s contact information and logo above the forms. The patient registers with their email address and a password of their choosing. Here’s the nice part. They can log on and off as much as needed to complete the forms. If they have to get off for a short period to find an insurance card, the phone rings or someone is at their door, they can log off without losing information they have already typed. They can log on several hours later, the next day or the next week. If the patient is elderly and not use to computers or a person just not computer savvy, they can invite a friend or family member over to help.
Patients love the fact that they can print a hard copy of their own records before they submit the forms to the practice. And just before they submit, the patient sees a review page where they can edit and modify, if necessary, their answers for accuracy.
Patients quickly understand the benefits of PatientStudio and why it makes life easier for them.
And the really good news for your practice is that this translates into an average savings of 20 minutes for each new patient. So change the picture to look like electronic, online forms and sit back and watch your practice grow.
