If you would’ve asked someone a hundred years ago if they had accessed the patient portal, they would have had no clue what you were speaking of. It is stunning how much information and technology has advanced humanity in recent years. Technology has changed the way we live, speak, connect and care for each other. Healthcare used to be extremely personal, right in the comfort of your home, at the time of your choosing. Modern times have seen a dramatic swing in how medical professionals provide care for their patients, some positive and some not-so.
At Formed AI, we believe in using technology to free up our most valuable resource: time. It is based on this core principal that we created MediForm. We believe that MediForm can greatly reduce the amount of time, and labor, spent on processing patient intake information. From the amount of time the patient spends filling out forms and waiting in the reception area, to the time that the office staff spends manually keying in data, on hold with insurance to verify benefits, copying the paperwork, to filing the records.
The MediForm secure system allows the patient to key in all of their information in advance of their appointment from the comfort of their own home, or in the waiting room from their own personal device. This information is instantly translated into our secure, cloud-based system, where it can be communicated to over 700 insurance companies. This lightning fast communication of information allows for almost instant verification of benefits. This allows the medical office to provide a higher quality of service: accurate treatment plans and estimates and lessens the amount of time spent crunching data by office staff.
On average the amount of time spent by a medical practice employee for this process on just one patient can vary anywhere from 15 minutes to up to 3 hours. The MediForm process takes less than 1 minute. We don’t need to tell you what a valuable asset that freed up time for your staff, your patients, and your practice that is. You can tell us yourself- with all your newfound spare time!
