What the family doctors has to say?

Family doctors of a primary care hospital in Ohio are also running some of the innovative technology in medical science. For example, new patients can easily register for an appointment by just visiting the portal. The established patients are welcome to deal with them through the same web portal where they can also check the results of the tests conducted, they can read the medical record summaries and they can also ask for a prescription refill. The portal is best since it is loaded with features that you can also use using your smartphone. This is for those who are always on the road. Though, oftentimes, the technology just gets ahead of one’s self.   Like in the case when a patient comes up at the front desk using a smartphone photo of the digital health insurance card.

Digital ID Cards of the Patients

This has happened in some instances. The problem for the hospital is that if the card is just on the phone, the information needed for the patient’s data cannot be easily taken and key in to the electronic health record to work on the billing accordingly. A lot of office printers are not capable to print through smartphones, so they cannot get the hard copy.  The key is it just makes the billing submission process slow. However, the digital ID cards are now becoming trendy in the world of health insurance. Is this true? It may be so.  According to the director of media relations for the American Health Insurance Plans, some of the links among the members of the plans are turning to mobile ID cards, partly, since this is what some of the patients want.

Such type of approaches enables the customers to have a ready available access to the card information through an app using their mobile phone that includes similar information that is on the printed cards. Since the plans are working in different methods, they can work closely with the providers who merely depend much on the information while communicating with those who have enrolled in the health plans. Count Aetna is among the insurers enjoying the convenience that this technology offers. The truth is that the AAFP currently started a communication with the Aetna just after they have heard that the company was in the expanding method using the digital cards this 2016. They have discovered that most of the plan members of Aetna may go on in getting the PVC cards; however the digital cards may serve as a spare for the cards. Aetna is now persuading the patients to access the digital type of the ID cards using their mobile devices.  It will be more convenient for them along the way.
