Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
IngagePatient, the premier patient engagement platform, has forged a relationship with ASAP Urgent Care, the fastest growing urgent care provider in Connecticut.
“We are excited to be chosen as the exclusive patient engagement platform for ASAP Urgent Care in a growing healthcare delivery segment,” says Justin Neece, chief operations officer for IngagePatient. “We have enjoyed working with the ASAP management team since last November to create a true patient centric experience, while meeting the unique urgent care operational needs.” IngagePatient powers the pre and post patient experience with configurable online self-service tools like patient queue – the virtual check-in, patient registration, and patient satisfaction surveys.
ASAP Urgent Care opened its first location, in Hamden Connecticut last November. The start-up has a broader vision of what an urgent care organization should be with a comprehensive focus on retail medicine and customer experience.
“Our competitors have an emergency room mentality, but we deliver care from a family medicine perspective with some concierge-style benefits too,” says Lawrence Earl, MD, ASAP Urgent Care’s chief medical. “IngagePatient, with its comprehensive feature set, helps us build relationships with our patients. We are getting good feedback on our exit surveys about the patients’ entire experience, and we couldn’t do it without IngagePatient.”
IngagePatient, through application programming integration (API) with Greenway, delivers a web-based patient engagement platform that interacts seamlessly with ASAP’s EHR and practice management system. PatientQ by IngagePatient is a feature that allows patients to check-in online prior to walking in the facility, receive emails or texts on the actual wait times, and pre-register. Together with a powerful mobile app for patients and integration to the company’s web site, these features reduce administrative time, increase patient satisfaction and provide a higher level of service.
“IngagePatient helps us to differentiate our care delivery in line with our mission and focus. Our technology platform leverages our team to provide real engagement and strengthen relationships,” says Earl.
ASAP plans to open five additional urgent care centers in Connecticut by the end of 2014.
