Two Health Care Organizations Select Galvanon's MediKiosk to Automate the Patient Check-In Process

We have found in our practice, that the use of a "kiosk", even one not yet integrated with our EHR, has improved operations by having updated medical and demographic information. SV

Use of hospital kiosks will allow organizations to streamline patient registration, reduce costs and improve patient satisfaction

MAITLAND, Fla. – Galvanon, an NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) company, announced today new contracts with Princeton HealthCare System (Princeton, N.J.) and Virginia Hospital Center (Arlington, Va.).

Both organizations will use Galvanon’s MediKiosk, a self-service patient check-in kiosk that allows patients to identify themselves upon arrival at the facility, view and confirm demographic and insurance information, electronically sign consent documents, enter medical history information and make co-payments. This self-service approach shortens wait times for patients while minimizing the time and expense associated with managing paper registration forms for front-office staff.
