Our system is designed to be low cost. We have two plans to choose from.
That includes unlimited users, unlimited data, unlimited support and 24x7 hosting.
You will also need either an Apple iPad or a PC touch Screen for the kiosk.
Yes. Check In Systems offers hardware kits as a convenience but you are welcome to purchase your hardware any where you like.
Check In Systems software does not integrate with other software. It is as a simple queuing system designed to run side-by-side with EMR and other software. Our intent is to get the patients in the office and let the staff know the reason for the visit.Integration would mean that the system was designed to take demographics or additional information which takes time and slows the sign in process significantly. This means you will need multiple kiosks to accommodate the longer sign in time and a larger lobby to accommodate the additional hardware. The only kiosk that would integrate would be a system written by the EMR company themselves due to cost.
We have designed a special 'sidebar' display to run along side of EMR software so you can have both on screen at the same time. If you absolutely need integration, you will need to contact your EMR software or consider using the patient portal in your lobby.
Yes. Here is a link to our published policies and procedures. HIPAA Policies
Yes. In order to keep the price down, we have a template system with a template business model and as well we provide a template Business Associate Agreement (BAA).
If it is acceptable, we would love to provide our services.
Since people don't always remember their card or RFID tag, we must still have to have a method for people to check in without. Check In Systems has found that maintaining cards, RFID chips and other devices costs you too much to maintain. The cost of having an employee maintain the database and the cost of the cards defeats the purpose of a low cost system. Since you have to have the type in method as a backup, why not just use it all the time and drop the cost of cards, barcodes and RFID chips?
No. Unfortunately the Android market has too many devices to support. The physical sizes of the tablets and the buttons on the devices are all very different. Another problem is that while some Androids are fast, too many of them are too slow for our application. When customers purchase a cheap Android and it does not perform, they often blame our software. For these reasons, we only support the touch screen Windows PC and Apple iPads for the kiosk.
Yes. We suggest the LG Smart Series TV as it has wifi and a browser that can make the install very simple. Using a simple link, your lobby can display who is waiting and in what order.
