Touch screen terminal provider Posiflex is helping to bridge the gap between healthcare hardware and software through a partnership with Clearwave.
Clearwave is the provider of a state-of-the-art patient self check-in system, a cloud-based self-service technology that runs on the Posiflex XT-series of touch screen terminals. Both companies will be showcasing their solutions at Posiflex booth No. 246 during HIMSS 16 in Las Vegas, Feb. 29-March 4.
According to a Health Industries Advisory Study conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the use of self-service kiosks in healthcare waiting rooms reduced wait times by 70 percent and patients spent 50 percent less time filling out forms. Additionally, the kiosks reduced demographic errors by 90 percent.
"Clearwave allows us to offer a better and faster check-in solution for our clients and saves each center time and money in the long-run with patients spending less time in the waiting room, reducing claim rejections and increasing payment collections. Adding Clearwave to our centers helps in the patient admit process and improves efficiency," said Amy Fasti, Executive VP Operations & Revenue Cycle Management, Physicians Endoscopy.
The Clearwave self-serve medical check-in system improves workflow, streamlines the check-in process, and increases patient engagement as a result of its implementation. Additional benefits include improved patient satisfaction and overall experience because of myriad benefits the system provides.
According to company research, patients spend an average of 21 minutes in health care waiting rooms that do not use self-service check-in software. Meanwhile, patient check-in registration times were reduced to just three minutes for clients using the Clearwave system.
Clearwave’s integrated software, hardware, and kiosk solution is intuitive, easy to use and can be integrated into almost any practice management (PM) or hospital information system (HIS) with existing integrations to: Allscripts, Athena, Cerner, CompuLink, GE, Greenway, McKesson, Meditech and NextGen. Clearwave is the only self-service registration solution that can link HIS vendors with disparate PM vendors allowing for one registration process across the enterprise.
The company chose Posiflex as its hardware provider of choice because of the terminals’ reliability, durability and capacity to withstand the ongoing rigors of a busy medical facility.
"Healthcare runs 24/7, so must its IT infrastructures. Posiflex has been time tested in health care, and helps us build and sustain a reliable solution," said Brian Stone, CFO with Clearwave.
HIMSS16 attendees may stop by the Posiflex booth No. 246 to receive a free self -service patient check-in evaluation. This can be scheduled at the booth or by filling out this online form.
Clearwave’s mission is to help hospitals and clinics reduce administrative effort, improve revenue cycle performance and increase patient satisfaction.
