St Petersburg, FL, July 07, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- In the healthcare industry there are several new companies with hosted patient kiosk software. These kiosks have proven effective in the organization of patient arrivals and reducing the interruptions at the check in window. Check In Systems has been writing software in the same arena since 2005 but now has a new version that claims the lowest cost solution on the market. Patient Check In.
Patient Check In is a stand alone software running on Windows operating systems. It allows medical facilities to host their own kiosk software on their own hardware. The big advantage over the competitors is the self hosting and the lack of need for a Business Associate Agreement. The BAA agreements often raise the bar on liability, insurance, cost to maintain contracts and time to implement. With those come the costs. Patient Check In removes that layer of concern and keeps the medical facility in compliance with HIPAA without legal contract wrangling.
The software is a simple version of a patient kiosk. It asks for the name and then a reason for visit. The information is then presented to the office computers in an organized list. Staff can see a clear name, the accurate time of arrival and reason for visit. Those patients in red are waiting in the lobby and have not been helped. Once the staff member acknowledges the patient, the time is recorded and a name is associated with the patient. Once the patient is through the office they can be checked out and removed from the active list.
All the information is stored in a local database. Names, dates, times and reasons all add up to some very useful reports for management. The documentation gives accurate performance statistics that can be used to help better staff the office. Average wait times give a better look at customer service and can be compared over long periods.
Of course price is always a concern with technology. Patient Check In beats them all with a low cost of only $399 annually including continual updates and support. That’s thousands lower than the lowest competitor. Add that with the easiest install and lowest cost hardware needed to give a quick return on investment.
Patient Check In comes with a free 30 day trial. You don’t even have to register to try it. Simply download the software and run it for 30 days. If it serves your needs, call in to register over the phone.www.patientcheckin.com
