Patient Scheduling Web App

Cadit Health facilitates patient self-service. Members schedule appointments by telling them what they are coming in for, when they are available, and answering questions relevant to the appointment they are looking for. Once the patient’s appointment is scheduled, it triggers an automated appointment confirmation, reminder, and follow-up process. This ensures that the patients have full information about their appointments, and can be used to get relevant content to patients to improve their experience with the provider. This includes notes and instructions from the provider’s office, as well as information on what to bring with them to their appointment. Active patient messaging ensures that patients are fully prepared for their appointments.
