Patients requiring a lab test or a screening mammogram at Florida Hospital Sebring, Lake Placid or Wauchula can now schedule those appointments through the hospitals' websites. The use of online scheduling is one of many steps these three hospitals and Adventist Health System are taking to actively engage patients in their care through the use of technology.
"Technology enabled self-scheduling meets our community's expectations of a convenient experience," said Bruce Bergherm, President and CEO of Florida Hospital Heartland.
Online scheduling allows patients to schedule their appointment whenever and wherever they have access to a computer. Once scheduled, patients will receive a confirmation email with preparation instructions tailored to their appointment. When they arrive for their appointment, the care team is prepared for their visit.
