PENRAD™ RELEASES PRODUCT UPDATE TO FACILITATE PATIENT INTAKE AND MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES
PenRad Inc. is committed to helping imaging centers as they enter into a new paradigm in women’s imaging workflow.
Buffalo, MN, May 12, 2020
As women’s imaging centers slowly relaunch their screening programs it has become evident that patient intake has changed for the foreseeable future. In an effort to keep waiting rooms clear and facilitate social distancing guidelines, PenRad has launced PenXpress Check-in. This new update to the PenRad suite of workflow and efficiency products complimetns existing programs such as PenForms (electronic patient in take forms) and PenConnect (emailed results, remiders, etc.).
“PenXpress Check-in will allow patients to virtually check into their appointment from the comfort and safety of their own home, using their own digital devices”, says Greg Gustafson, PenRad Founder and CEO. Gustafson goes on to say, “patients can now simply scan a QR code emailed to them by their healtcare provider, enter their security code and be connected immediately with their patient intake form, including high risk questionnaire and health updates.”
PenRad’s software ecosystem is secure and easily accessible by patients. The platform streamlines the overall patient experience and offloads a significant portion of the work typically requiring face to face interaction with patients; PenXpress Check-in significantly reduces face to face interactions. Further, PenXpress Check-in facilitates educational opportunities and sets expectations with patients about their upcoming visit and how that experience may have changed since their last visit.
Gustafson continues, “in this time of need as our front-line healthcare providers are looking for ways to streamline their typical workflow, stay safe and ease patient anxiety, PenRad is helping by minimizing the time spent with patients, and facilitating social distancing to keep everyone safe.” “We are here to do our part to help.”
