NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CheckedUp, the digital patient engagement company, today announced that it will unveil new features, enhancements and partnerships for its interactive platform during the American Academy of Ophthalmology 2016 Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois, October 15-18. These advances will be the subject of demonstrations and user presentations given at the CheckedUp exhibit booth (#162).
“We continue to innovate the CheckedUp platform to make it an even more seamless and essential component of the way doctors educate and interact with their patients,” said Richard Awdeh, M.D., CEO and Founder of CheckedUp. “Consistent with our overall vision for CheckedUp, the new features we are introducing, and the capabilities under development, are designed to contribute to increased practice efficiency, while significantly enhancing the patient experience, in ways that each practice can customize.”
New Features and Content
To enhance the depth of in-clinic consultations, CheckedUp is leveraging its touch technology to allow doctors to mark-up and annotate anatomically correct, three-dimensional images of eyes and other diagrams that help explain disease states and available treatment options. These customized images are captured in real time and sent directly to the patient, allowing them to access the full content of their in-clinic conversation at home and at their convenience through the CheckedUp platform. In addition, more advanced controls are being added to help patients better understand their prospective visual outcomes with different technologies and IOL choices.
CheckedUp is also introducing a new Dry Eye content module, with several variations including “Cataract Surgery and Dry Eye” and “Dry Eye and Contact Lenses.” These modules were created specifically to help practices address the information and symptom management needs of their dry eye patients, while helping them to achieve their best visual outcomes.
One of the most recent developments from the CheckedUp team is the ability to embed and share the platform on a practice or physician’s website. This will allow for a more customized patient experience, trackable website clicks and prequalified patient information.
CheckedUp now offers the ability to automatically prescribe patient access to customized educational programs directly from the practice’s EMR/PMS. Additionally, digital documentation of patient education and choices can now be directly imported into the EMR.
Benefits Management Integration
CheckedUp will also be showcasing the integration of a claims management tool into the platform. This digital solution helps streamline eligibility determinations and claim filing for out-of-network benefits. It will allow patients to understand what services their plan covers, while they learn about their condition and treatment options. This feature will be available directly to patients on each practice’s website and via CheckedUp in-clinic integrations.
Augmented Reality Patient Counselor
The company announced that it will offer private beta demonstrations of its augmented reality patient counselor program. This technology will be showcased by appointment only.
