Phreesia, used by thousands of clinicians nationwide, digitizes the patient check-in process by replacing the traditional patient clipboard and all paper forms with the wireless, touchscreen PhreesiaPad. Phreesia collects and updates critical patient information, verifies patient insurance, and collects copayments and balances during check-in.

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Phreesia.  We believe this partnership will help us improve our process of collecting and updating patient information, automatically post accurate payments to our patients' accounts, and eliminate much of the manual and redundant work that keeps our patients from getting the attention they deserve.  All of these improvements will support the increase of our bottom line, help our practice to run more smoothly, and, most importantly, help us deliver better service to our patients.  We are very excited about this new phase of our business," says Scott R. Fowler, JD, Md, President Holston Medical Group.

Phreesia, the patient check-in company, has partnered with Allscripts to offer medical practices a comprehensive solution to streamline their office workflow. Integrating with Allscripts' electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems, Phreesia will create a seamless flow of critical patient data, helping practices save staff time and increase cash flow.

"Our PhreesiaPads, a more affordable and private alternative to patient check-in kiosks, will allow Holston Medical Group to streamline patient check in and increase collections," says Phreesia CEO Chaim Indig. "Our robust integration will allow Holston Medical Group to electronically transfer patient check in data to their EHR and PM systems, providing even greater time savings for the staff and allowing their doctors to better serve their patients. I am thrilled to have Holston Medical Group join the thousands of doctors that use Phreesia to check in their patients."
