Healthcare information technology company Vecna Technologies has announced it will be launching a new mobile app enhancing its Patient Self Check-in service at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2020 conference in Orlando.
“Improving patient experience is at the core of everything we do at Vecna. The new white label app leverages Android and iOS capabilities to add biometric authentication, stored patient demographic and payment profiles, push notifications and hardware free on-site check-in to Vecna’s existing pre-registration, check-in and patient flow management capabilities,” said Deborah Theobald, CEO of Vecna Technologies.
The new mobile app will complement Vecna’s existing tablet and kiosk-based Patient Solutions platforms that allow patients to check-in for appointments, fill out digital forms, confirm and update insurance information, get cost estimates for care, and make payments.
For healthcare staff, the Patient Solutions platform allows them waiting room visibility, the ability to control wait times, bill patients for care services, and administer post-care surveys.
“The mobile app opens a whole new world of features for patient intake and flow management,” said Doug Fallon, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Vecna Technologies. “We envision a higher level of patient satisfaction, data accuracy and payment collections. Providers can avoid costly hardware investments as patients can now leverage existing mobile tools such as facial recognition, biometrics, mobile wallet, Uber and Lyft, navigation, and text to simplify the healthcare experience,” he added.
Vecna’s launch of their mobile app comes at a time when the use of biometrics in healthcare is growing rapidly, particularly in areas like patient identification as well as diagnoses and security.
The 2020 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition will be held from March 9 to 13, in Orlando, FL, with Vecna showcasing its mobile app at Booth #480-32 in the Consumerism and Patient Engagement Pavilion.
