MEDITECH Patient Engagement

Healthcare consumers want choice. Your patients want care.

Consumers want to access care when and where it’s convenient for them, using technology that they already know and like. Patients want attentive care, with clinicians that are in the know. With MEDITECH Expanse Patient Engagement solutions, you can deliver both.

Improve outcomes, enhance customer loyalty, and increase revenues with tools that keep your healthcare organization connected to consumers and patients alike.

Empower the most important member of the care team — the patient

Help patients take control of their health and their healthcare by giving them convenient, easy to use tools that resemble the consumer technologies they already know well. The key to improving patient engagement is to offer tools that fit consumer lifestyles and buying habits. This helps to attract more engaged, brand-loyal consumers, and empowers patients to participate more fully in their care. MEDITECH’s MHealth app and Patient and Consumer Health Portal make it easy to schedule appointments, reach out to providers, and address non-routine matters, such as vaccines.

"We definitely have a huge percentage of our population engaged with MEDITECH's portal, and MEDITECH actually pushes us to do more with the system. Our population likes to use the system. Without a question, MEDITECH's system has a super high value. The system is very affordable. We are very happy with the system, and our patients are very happy with it."

Empower your community with Health Records on iPhone®

Give your community access to their medications, allergies, test results, and other important information by syncing the MEDITECH portal with Health Records on iPhone. One aggregated record, accessible via the Health app on iPhone, simplifies data access for your community by enabling them to:

  • View their health data across multiple participating organizations in one aggregated record
  • Combine their health record data with data captured on their own fitness trackers and remote monitoring devices
  • Have immediate access to medications, allergies, test results, procedures, conditions, immunizations, and vitals
  • Present key elements of their medical history to their providers, filling gaps in their records and guiding safer treatment decisions
  • Receive notifications when new records become available
 

Stay connected no matter what, through virtual care

No-shows cost the U.S. healthcare system more than $150 billion a year and individual physicians an average of $200 per unused time slot.* MEDITECH’s Virtual Care solutions enable patients to stay connected to their care providers (and your organization) via convenient video visits, helping to reduce no-shows and cancellations.

Healthcare Organizations

Recruit new patients by offering timely options for those who would otherwise have to take time out of their day to receive care during an in-person office visit.

Working with two other hospitals as part of their SHINE partnership, Markham Stouffville Hospital quickly mobilized MEDITECH’s Virtual Visit solution and is leveraging the technology to create a more patient-centric and sustainable healthcare system beyond the pandemic.

“...the MEDITECH solution offered providers the opportunity to launch a Virtual Visit while they were in the patient chart — further enhancing and improving both the provider and patient experience.”

Pre Registration Check in Video

Focus more energy on the patient experience, instead of the paper trail

Our pre-registration functionality allows patients to complete pre-visit tasks before arriving at the office — managing demographic and insurance updates, adding to personal, social, and family history, updating medications and allergies, and responding to pre-visit questionnaires — reducing patient wait times and saving staff time. Contactless self check-in via a QR code increases patient portal adoption and minimizes interactions for in-office appointments.

  • Patients can wait anywhere to be called for their appointment; they won’t be spending unnecessary time in a crowded waiting room
  • Reduce denials and encounter fewer scanning and transcription errors
  • Keep appointments on schedule and reduce the frustration associated with appointment backups

"By having our patients use MEDITECH patient portal questionnaires to enter COVID-19 screening and consent information, we're able to save our staff approximately 15 minutes per instance over traditional phone screening. And patients love the convenience of submitting on their own time. It's a win-win for everyone."

"By empowering patients to directly book their own COVID-19 vaccinations in our MEDITECH patient portal, we’ve saved our scheduling staff countless hours, freed up our phone lines, and provided our patients with the convenience of scheduling a time that works best for them. And since patient portal users are already in our system, we have all the context we need on our patients to verify their information and ensure their eligibility."

Healthier patients for a healthier bottom line

Connecting with patients in a meaningful way has never been more important. As the industry shifts to value-based care, patients — as consumers — are looking for more control over how they spend their healthcare dollars. They want flexible, easy access to their providers, and their information, from wherever they are. And providers are looking at ways to proactively manage their populations, while encouraging patients to take a more active role in their health.
