Vivacare's patient education service helps medical practices to save time and money. By helping physicians and their office staff to efficiently deliver practice health information following office visits, the use of Vivacare leads to reduced practice costs, improved practice workflow and increased patient satisfaction.
"Vivacare is an excellent patient education resource tool," says Kate Othus, MHA Administrator of Portland Dermatology Clinic, LLP.. "Our Internet savvy patients are directed to our website and if they want more information about their disease - it's all right there. The service saves us hundreds of dollars per month in handout copying and brochure costs while also supporting our efforts to 'go green". Patients have the option to then print any of our handouts themselves, or simply review online."
Vivacare Inc. provides medical practices with the "From Your Doctor" patient education service. Enrolled practices receive a variety of Web-based patient education tools at no cost, including a Patient Education Library and Patient eNewsletter function.
Recent upgrades to the Patient Education Library enable physicians with no programming skills to personalize the content to reflect their unique approach to care. Patient handouts appear online with the practice's name at the top and can be printed conveniently by the patient at home. By using vivacare, medical practices can fulfill their patients' desire for online health education with minimal effort by simply telling them "go to our Website".
The Patient eNewsletter function provides medical practices with a paperless means to announce new services, staff hires, awards, or community events. vivacare recently began enhancing the Patient eNewsletter with specialty-specific medical news stories to provide patients with practical and up-to-date health information.
Dr. Ron Reece, a dermatologist in Redding, California shared how offering patient education resources online helped his practice reach new patients. "I find that having an informative website is important to attracting potential patients and for educating patients that I already have. To that end "Vivacare" has enhanced my website," said Dr. Reece.
