Doctor Check-Ins Can Be as Easy as Unlocking an iPhone
Cut patient’s wait time by up to 80 percent
A doctor’s waiting room is a test on optimism. The front desk digging for your medical records isn’t always a pretty sight, the unpredictable waiting time is just anxiety fuel and the dull, plastic clipboards couldn’t possibly help. CrossChx is planning to overhaul this and revolutionize patient waiting areas with the power of the Internet of Things (IoT). With its premium product CrossChx Queue, checking in at the clinic is now as quick as a finger scan.
The startup from Columbus, Ohio creates universal identification for patients which works with any CrossChx-enabled clinic or hospital. This service, called SafeChx, is the company’s record-keeping arm with over 36 million patient identities on board. Once a patient is signed into the system, his-her medical records all link up. If any errors or duplicates are detected by the system, clerks are alerted so their human skills can resolve the problem.
