A Patient Loyalty Card Program Is The Future Of Healthcare Registration
Get Ahead Of The Curve With A Patient Loyalty Card Program!
Current Patient registration methods are archaic, inefficient, and prone to errors that are costly for your institution. The industry is moving toward standardization of electronic patient records and desire for greater efficiency and accuracy in patient registration in general. Also, The FTC has issued the Red Flags Rule, which will require a written Patient Identity Theft Prevention Program to be implemented by June 1, 2010.
But how does your institution get on board with these changes?
A Patient Loyalty card program is the solution. Upon registration, a secure photo ID is issued to the patient. Our patient loyalty solution complies with the Red Flags Rule and Project Swipe IT, which is an initiative by MGMA to push for WEDI standardized patient ID cards.
Also, the ROI of a Patient Loyalty card program is huge! Save time and reduce costs directly and indirectly during registration: since you are going through the effort to prove a person’s identity during registration, why not issue a secure photo ID card to assure that when the patient comes back into the hospital, he or she is, in fact, the person who was vetted? This saves the time and costs of reregistering a patient and possibly making errors or duplicate records.
In addition, a patient loyalty card increases a patient’s investment and brand identification to your hospital. Give them a reason to come back to your hospital (and not a competitor’s) with a constant reminder in their wallet or purse, a “billboard in the billfold” that advertises your healthcare organization.
