North Caddo Medical Center Family Practices Enhance Patient Experience with New Mobile Check-In System
November 13, 2023 — North Caddo Medical Center is excited to announce the launch of a new Mobile Check-In System for its clinic sites: Benton Medical, Blanchard Medical, Plain Dealing Medical, and Vivian Medical & Surgical. The system, powered by Phreesia, aims to improve the patient experience by simplifying the check-in and registration process, making it faster, more convenient, and more secure.
What is Mobile Check-In?
The new Mobile Check-In System allows patients to complete their registration from the comfort of their device, such as a smartphone, computer, or tablet, before their scheduled appointment. This approach significantly reduces paperwork and shortens wait times, improving and streamlining patient experience.
How Does Mobile Check-In Work?
- Check Messages: A few days before the appointment, patients receive an email or text message from Phreesia containing a link to start the registration process.
- Complete Registration: By following the link, patients are directed to a user-friendly registration platform where they can provide essential information and respond to health questions and screeners. The digital forms can be completed from the privacy of patients’ homes or wherever it’s most convenient. Patients who are unable to complete the initial online check-in before their appointment are encouraged to come 20 minutes early.
- Faster Check-In: Most of the registration process is completed when patients arrive for appointments. Patients’ first check-in online will take longer than any other time. The system will save patients’ answers so that the next time will be even faster.
