We are pleased to announce the launch of an interactive way to collect and update patient medical information. Effective June 1st, C-FHT will be using Ocean Tablets. When you check in for an appointment, a receptionist may hand you a tablet so that you can check and update demographic information (address, phone number etc.) if necessary. Once you are finished, you hand the tablet back to the receptionist and any changes will automatically be saved in your electronic medical record (EMR).
Preventive care is a crucial part of our mission to keep you healthy, so you may also be given the option to complete one or more other questionnaires on the tablet. For example, a questionnaire related to smoking, or a developmental questionnaire for a baby or young child. Since you can complete these questionnaires while waiting, this will ensure more time with your health care provider to discuss healthcare issues or concerns.
We are excited about this new venture and look forward to your feedback.
