The Bryn Mawr Hospital Health Center has deployed MediKiosk, a self-service technology solution provided by Galvanon, to offer patients the convenience and speed of self-service registration.
A new outpatient center, the Bryn Mawr Hospital Health Center (BMHHC) is a Main Line Health facility and a member of the Jefferson Health System (JHS), the largest healthcare system in southeastern Pennsylvania.
The BMHHC is using wireless MediKiosk units, called eClipboards, to automate the registration process. The portable devices display a touch-screen interface where patients can view and confirm appointments, electronically sign consent forms, enter medical information and make co-payments.
MediKiosk interfaces with scheduling and imaging systems at Main Line Health so that data entered by patients at check-in flows directly to these applications. This feature minimizes duplicate data entry for staff and increases overall efficiency.
Raj Toleti, president of Galvanon, said: When the Bryn Mawr Hospital Health Center began using MediKiosk, it found that patients readily embraced the technology. As patients become familiar with self-service applications in other aspects of their daily lives, they have come to expect the same from their healthcare providers.
