Phreesia Patient Intake to reduce COVID-19 exposure for patients and staff

Phreesia Patient Intake platform helps reduce COVID-19 exposure between patients and staff, deploying key features in as little as 2 days.

1)	Reduce face-to-face interaction during registration: “Zero-Contact Intake” reduces face-to-face interactions to keep patients and staff safe during intake. Patients complete registration from their home, car or another personal space, using Phreesia Mobile. Staff manage the intake process from a remote location without needing to handle patients’ documentation.
2)	Screen patients for COVID-19 risk factors: COVID-19 Screening Module automatically screens patients according to CDC guidelines for risk factors before their visit, alerting both patients and staff to the most appropriate action such as re-routing patients to sick and well visit care settings.
3)	Automate intake for Telehealth: Intake for telehealth captures intake information ahead of each telehealth visit and facilitates the start of virtual sessions.
4)	Prioritize outreach to the most vulnerable patients: Improve vulnerable patients’ access to care through targeted communications (emails/texts) that alert certain populations of their higher risk and encourages them to schedule an appointment - either via telemedicine or in-person, depending on their needs and the practices’ resources.

Phreesia is integrated with 22+ PM/EMR systems including Epic, Cerner, Athenahealth, Allscripts and Greenway. Note, integration is not required for some COVID-19 related features.
