Instead of being cluttered with patent’s files, Dr. Carl Lindgren’s personal office space includes the latest high tech gadgets. Lindgren has recently adopted a new online interface called Chadis. Once registered, parents use the website to answer a series of questions prior to each check-up.
Even though the Healthy Future Pediatrics front office staff personally answer each phone call, the practice is focused on using technology to simplify the health care process.
Providers carry small notebook computers between exam rooms and the office operates entirely with electronic medical records. All prescriptions are sent electrically and Lindgren jokes that “the script is at the pharmacy before the parent leaves the exam room.”
“I view technology as a powerful tool to improve the quality of health care. This is the future,” Lindgren summarizes.
