Introducing Phreesia: an innovative new way to check in for appointments

Hawthorn is using a new electronic patient registration system at all of its sites. Patients checking in for an appointment can use a wireless digital tablet provided by Phreesia, a national leader in healthcare service solutions.
Receptionists will still greet patients and confirm insurance information. The PhreesiaPad can then be used in the waiting room to complete health history, sign forms, make co-payment or set up a payment plan quickly, privately and securely. Changes made to demographic or health history information will automatically update in your electronic medical record.

With an email on file, you can check in from your smartphone if you prefer and take advantage of pre-visit check-in from a link sent to you two days prior to your appointment. After your visit, a patient survey will be sent, giving us timely patient satisfaction data. Read more »
