Healthtech Tools Enhance Patient Engagement
Here are some healthtech tools that enhance patient engagement—be sure to ask potential vendors if these are a part of their solution.
Front Office Self-Scheduler
Digitize all inbound patient inquiries to your practice by providing an automated way to request appointments and prescription refills and send images, videos, and interactive responses.
Automate the check-in process and reduce patient wait times before their scheduled appointment with an intelligent intake tool that offers patients a way to complete their intake forms digitally from anywhere.

Expand your practice’s reach with virtual telehealth visits, locate pharmacies near your patients’ locations with geo-based targeting, send text notifications of upcoming virtual appointments, and reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure for both patients and staff.
Introduce a convenient, user-friendly platform where patients can review statements, pay their bills online, chat directly with their provider, access medical records, request appointments, and receive reminders.
Deliver enhanced patient-centered solutions and improve health outcomes for patients managing one or more chronic conditions with 24/7 care coordination through monthly telephone checkups.
Must-Have Urology EHR Features for Your Urology Practice
User-Friendly Patient Timeline
Usable technology that equips your team with what they need is essential to providing the best care. The Urology EHR you decide to go with should include a user-friendly patient timeline filled with the most critical information. With this tool, your team can quickly search and click-through relevant information to learn more about their patient and form a plan accordingly.
Interactive Patient Summary
To optimize clinical decisions and understand patient health data, you need a way to assess PHI in a HIPAA-compliant way quickly. An interactive patient summary in your Urology EHR enables your team to graph patient vitals, medications, and lab results easily. This allows them to make basic comparisons across patient history for you to review.
Custom templates within your Urology EHR allow you to make necessary adjustments wherever you need to in the documenting processes. This allows for a higher level of specificity within each chart, claim, and document throughout the entire clinical process. This is especially necessary in a specialty Urology EHR that deals with all kinds of situations and cases that require a certain level of flexibility in each visit.
Eligibility verification is essential in any EHR to protect your payments. As price transparency becomes increasingly important to patients, an automated tool in your Urology EHR can make all the difference. Your team can learn the estimated out-of-pocket cost for patients in for a visit before services are ever rendered in just a few clicks. Having this information helps patients prepare for their medical bills rather than be caught by surprise. This leads to an increase in on-time and in-full patient payments.
Integrated billing is non-negotiable in a state-of-the-art Urology EHR. Having integrated billing capabilities in your Urology EHR provides you with an industry-leading clearinghouse, allowing you to review claims and practice financials with a few clicks. Here, you can see what areas need improvement and how your practice can improve clean claims, resulting in quicker and higher payer reimbursements.
Integrated practice management technology offers your team a user-friendly and straightforward scheduling process. Easily adjustable to the shifting schedules of your team, your front-line staff can easily see what appointments are available and create pre-determined visit requirements. This ensures that no detail is missed in the scheduling processes.
