SanAntonio Attending the 2011 NAHAM Conference? Stop by the PatientWay booth and say Hi!The National Association of Healthcare Access Management will be hosting its 37th Annual Educational Conference & Exposition in San Antonio, Texas, from May 24-27, and PatientWay will be there.

This event will be a great opportunity for our team to connect with patient access management leaders from across the U.S. and Canada. We plan to use our time at the conference to learn more about the challenges and needs of healthcare organizations in the area of patient registration.

We will also give attendees of the conference an opportunity to try our self-service technology. We will have computers on site as well as a full-size touch screen kiosk, giving visitors the chance to try our apps, including pre-registration, check-in, wayfinding and surveys. And if you speak with Patrick, our Chief Marketing Officer, ask him to take out his iPhone and demo PatientWay mobile.

Special guest Judy Dewsbury, Manager, Patient Access at the Southlake Regional Health Centre, will be onsite at the PatientWay booth. Judy led the implementation of self-service technologies (such as online pre-registration and check-in kiosks) at Southlake. After only one year, Southlake has already generated significant benefits including 50% reduction in registration data errors, 60% reduction in wait time to see a registration clerk, and a $400,000 annual operational savings. The complete story is available here.

If you are lucky enough to be in San Antonio for the conference, stop by, say hi and try out our kiosk. Better yet, come meet Judy to ask questions, pick her brain, and share your thoughts on patient access management.

If you are not able to attend please feel free to contact us to discuss your organization’s needs and how the PatientWay team can help bring measurable cost and time efficiencies to your organization by implementing patient self-service technologies.

We make it easy for health organizations to work with us!
