Maitland, FL (PRWEB) January 31, 2005
Galvanon, the patient experience company, today announced that it was selected as a finalist for the eighth annual 2005 MS-HUG Awards in the Enabling Technologies category for its MediKioskÂ and Customer Value Management Enterprise Server technology. The honors are awarded by MS-HUG, a membership community of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), and recognize independent software vendors that develop solutions on Microsoft technology for the healthcare industry. Award contestants are evaluated on the extent to which they provide significant business benefits to healthcare organizations and improve patient care.
GalvanonÂs MediKiosk is a patient self-service kiosk that automates patient registration and check-in processes. Hospitals and physician practices use MediKiosk to identify patients at check-in, gather necessary forms and signatures and collect co-payments and outstanding balances. By using this self-service kiosk solution, healthcare organizations realize shorter patient wait times, less redundant paperwork, improved staff productivity and increased patient satisfaction.
MediKiosk operates on GalvanonÂs Customer Value Management (CVM) Enterprise Server, a common platform that facilitates the seamless exchange of data between MediKiosk and GalvanonÂs other solutions, including Online BillPay, Pre-Registration and Membership Manager modules.
ÂOne of the biggest challenges that healthcare organizations face is balancing the desire to increase patient satisfaction with the need to control costs. Our self-service approach strikes this balance with technology designed to improve the way that patient information is gathered, stored and delivered throughout the care process,Â said Clynt Taylor, CEO of Galvanon. ÂIt is truly an honor to be recognized by Microsoft for our efforts, and we applaud them for acknowledging the transforming impact that technology can have on the healthcare industry.Â
ÂGalvanon demonstrates its commitment to the healthcare industry with innovative solutions like MediKiosk, leveraging Microsoft technology to improve staff productivity and increase patient satisfaction through a more efficient and automated registration and check-in process,Â said Steve Shihadeh, general manager, Microsoft Healthcare and Life Sciences. ÂWe are pleased to recognize GalvanonÂs efforts to drive integrated communication and collaboration solutions that enhance patient care and help to control costs.Â
