Phreesia Inc., a New York, NY company, also known as “the patient check-in company,” is trying to replace the patient clipboard with a free wireless automated touch-screen PhreesiaPad. Upon arrival to a doctor’s office, patients answer a series of multiple-choice questions about their medical history and current symptoms in the waiting room, and then the report is printed out automatically so that the physician can review it. Some of the technology benefits the company mentions:
We provide everything you need (short of the broadband internet connection), including a wireless network. Conduct a pre-visit personalized interactive patient interview in your waiting room. Offer up-to-date health education relevant to your patients’ medical concerns. Review your patient information through an easy-to-use searchable database. Access your patient data from your home, hospital, or another office location.
Phreesia has recently been chosen as a DEMOgod award winner. Here is the award winning presentation:
