CARY, NORTH CAROLINA – September 12, 2016— PatientWorks Corporation, a provider of healthcare self-service systems and patient flow management solutions, today announced that it has acquired the innovative iQ Kiosk and POWERstation Cloud software products from Unicomp Corporation of America (UCoA). The acquired software enables PatientWorks to expand its reach into the office-based physician practice marketplace.
“The new software adds to the current PatientWorks suite of patient self-service solutions,” said Larry Haworth, CEO of PatientWorks. “These unique cloud centric products provide productivity solutions to the office-based physician that reduces labor intensive processes. It delivers dramatic cost saving while enhancing accuracy and efficiency. These cloud empowered solutions are particularly effective for practices that don’t have, or don’t want to maintain, IT resources to support traditional on-premises implementations.”
iQ Kiosk is a web-based iPad check-in kiosk, where patients can simply sign in upon arrival at the physician’s office. It can service patients that have appointments or with walk-ins. Strong data analytics provide meaningful information to the practice regarding patient wait times and many other activities that impact the patient experience. The application of data analytics permits the practice to gain meaningful insights, and to better understand and improve practice performance. An iQ Kiosk deployment is easily justified by the significant return on a minimal investment.
As a complement to iQ Kiosk, the POWERstation Cloud solution automates front-desk patient registration with an efficient “hands-free” data input and verification process that improves staff productivity, reduces insurance claim denials, and establishes an effective patient payment and collection platform.
“We are pleased to provide PatientWorks with an impactful and cost-effective solution for the office based physician.” said Marty Kaplan, CEO of UCoA. “We believe that iQ Kiosk and POWERstation Cloud will provide PatientWorks with an opportunity for aggressive growth by expanding their market scope.”
PatientWorks® provides Self-Service Patient Check-in Kiosk and Tablet solutions. KioskWorks® provides a patient centric, customizable user touch screen environment for self-check-in, co-payment processing, interactive wayfinding, event calendar, patient education and fundraising opportunities. The Patient Xpress module captures electronic signatures as well as patient photos and scans insurance cards and/or driver licenses. The data is merged onto the healthcare provider’s forms and automatically sent to their imaging system and/or routed to the Registrar. Queue Navigator manages patient volumes, wait times and check in compliance, whether patients check in through KioskWorks® or directly with registration staff. Admitting personnel can manage patient check-in remotely in real-time at the department level or across the entire enterprise. CheckinWorks® offers healthcare providers the same functionality only on mobile tablets. For more information, please visit www.patientworks.com.
