Regional Online Appointment Booking to support coordination of access & care delivery across primary care, community clinics, pharmacies & hospitals
Learn more about EMPOWER Health, EMR-integrated Online Appointment Booking, and our Ontario-wide Digital Health initiatives.
The EMPOWER Health platform supported regional awareness & booking of COVID-19 testing & treatment at COVID Cough Cold & Flu Care Clinics across central Ontario in partnership with the central Ontario primary care community of practice, hospitals & clinics in 2022.
The EMPOWER Health centralized online appointment booking service allowed for the diversity of local context & configurations to support a common patient-centered care experience across the wide range of healthcare organizations that each used a variety of EMRs & EHRs, while also maintaining their local clinical workflow (hospitals testing / treating hundreds of patients a day & community clinics testing / treating a few days a week).
The EMPOWER Health platform also supported regional planning and coordination of service availability to ensure patients were able to book appointments and be seen by a clinician within the clinically appropriate timeframes (ie. booking same-day appointments up to 30 minutes before start-time with most patients seen within 24 hours to support testing & treatment of COVID-19).
To support coordination of service delivery within clinically appropriate timeframes, the EMPOWER Health platform provided healthcare organizations with their individualized wait-time information corresponding to the time an appointment was booked and the time the patient was seen by a clinician under a framework to support same-day access.
Since 2013, EMPOWER Health has been offering EMR-integrated online appointment booking service that integrates into primary care EMRs and clinical workflows. With EMPOWER Health’s customizable solution with easy-to-implement website plug-ins, your Ontario Health Team can easily implement online booking to improve patient awareness & access to your services.
The EMPOWER Health team is ready to co-design & implement a solution that aligns with your organization and fits your unique workflow.
