July 16, 2008 - As an authorized NCR reseller, Siemens will now offer the NCR MediKiosk self-service check-in solution that allows patients to identify themselves upon arrival at the facility, view and confirm demographic and insurance information, electronically sign consent documents and make co-payments, to its customer base in North America
NCR is a global leader in self-service solutions across multiple industries, including healthcare, where its products and services help enhance the patient experience.
Employing self-service technology can help healthcare organizations streamline the patient registration process, shorten wait times and reduce administrative costs by eliminating redundant and manual steps such as signature capture and forms scanning, as well as minimizing paper use. Hospitals, clinics and physician practices that deploy self-service can also improve revenue cycle management by reducing the number of denied claims and increasing collection of co-payments and account balances. All information entered by patients at check-in flows into healthcare organizationsï¿½ health information systems or physician practice management systems, helping minimize the risk of error.
