Crisis in Patient Intake Staffing? Virtual Staff Collaboration Offers Immediate Relief

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND: Crisis in Patient Intake Staffing?  Virtual Staff Collaboration Offers Immediate Relief.

We will be discussing our Virtual Staff Collaboration(VSC) system and how, combined with our Mobile Patient Registration solution will provide immediate relief against your staffing shortages. The VestaPay solution captures patient billing information and verifies insurance, while allowing you to secure 100% of the patient’s liability at time of service. It does this in all departments, including your ED.

In summary, viewed through an innovative dashboard, the VSC provides:

  • Real-time visibility for staff into every patient engagement as it is occurring
  • Facilitates Mobile Patient Registration through our intelligent ChatBot – a contactless means of capturing all patient information throughout the hospital
  • Allows one registrar to serve many patients in many locations, simultaneously
  • Gives management moment-by-moment, display of cash and revenues secured

We will end this fast paced session with live Q&A. We look forward to seeing you there.
