Bethlehem Podiatry: Fallon-Kline Foot and Ankle puts patient-doctor communications in the cloud.
BETHLEHEM, PA, May 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cloud computing allows patient-doctor communications to flourish like never before. With the launching of his new website bethlehempodiatristfootdoctor.com, Dr. Kevin Fallon Kline says, "Our patients are hyper-connected with myself and my office staff". He says this results in better patient outcomes and increased patient satisfaction.
During the entire cycle of the patient-doctor relationship, Dr. Kline is leveraging technology to the fullest. For instance, his website is integrated with his electronic medical records system, allowing patients to chose the exact time of their appointment online without having to call the office. Dr. Kline says many other doctors' websites offer a complicated appointment request system and that "With our online scheduling, patients are presented with all available appointment times for the coming month and can lock in their appointment time right then and there." He claims this has greatly increased the efficiency in his office.
Online Scheduling is just one example of how cloud computing has helped Dr. Kline's practice grow. After patients have scheduled their appointment online, they receive confirmation of their appointment via email. Dr. Kline says this allows his patients to save their appointments directly to the calendars on their smart phones, which in turn decreases no-shows. The day before appointments, patients are sent reminders via text message, email, and/or automated voice calls, which also increases patient turn out rates. Dr. Kline says missed appointments are costly to medical offices and to patients alike, "when patients fail to show for follow-up they are putting their health at risk."
Access to health records is a hallmark of Dr. Kline's patient experiences. Since the advent of electronic health records, patients are now able to interface with their medical information in real- time. Dr. Kline believes this increases patient compliance, "my patients are able to review their medicine regimens online, and communicate with me via secured and encrypted messaging if they have any questions." Since implementing this system, according to Dr. Kline, patient feedback has been extremely positive, "patients are able to directly and securely engage with me, and I with them."
