Direct Patient Scheduling Application
Direct Patient Scheduling is a Perfect Practice solution targeting patient and provider engagement. Most providers want their patients to have the ability to schedule appointments online and offer more strategic ways to communicate. Direct patient scheduling increases patient engagement, frees up staff time and creates a more efficient practice.
Existing Patient Engagement Solutions Are Limited
Comprehensive patient self-scheduling is a complicated service and that prevents most practices from implementing it. Existing patient scheduling solutions need to pull data from multiple EMRs in their system, integrate it with Practice Management Solutions, and then plug in automated mobile communications. Often, this is a time-consuming and expensive process, especially if it requires a complete data migration.
There are patient portal add-on solutions available, but those have limitations too, often only replacing phone calls with an email system. They don’t help automate your patient outreach strategy, an integral component of your patient and provider engagement goals.Your staff still has to review the online forms, reach out for missing or incorrect information, manually enter the information and finally call patients for reminders and overdue care. A robust patient engagement strategy needs to be built on an integrated platform that can customize targeted communications and deliver automated messages.
