10 steps to create a patient-focused healthcare experience using technology

SCI Solutions, a provider of patient care management technology, created a 10-point checklist for healthcare providers to make sure patients are getting the right care at the right time.  

Here are 10 steps to create a more patient-focused experience in healthcare.

1. Integrate orders: Embed and automatically match electronic orders with scheduled appointments.

2. Market-based scheduling: Present a consistent brand from a single call center with geography-based appointment searching.

3. Embed business logic: Integrate clinical and operational rules into the scheduling process.

4. Prioritize revenue cycle tasks: Integrate critical revenue cycle tasks with scheduling.

5. Use integrated worklists: Use electronic to-do lists to ensure providers inform patients of financial responsibilities and increase point-of-service collections.

6. Offer self-service and correspondence tools: Use self-service resources to improve correspondence and reduce inbound call volume.

7. Make scheduling easy: Provide patients with a guided, step-by-step scheduling process.

8. Digital appointment reminders: Provide patients with digital appointment reminders via phone, text or email.

9. Implement cloud-based technology: Securely integrate all order, referral and scheduling traffic with a cloud-based technology platform.

10. Utilize analytic reports: Use data analytics to gain insight into demand and resource capacity.
