What is a follow-up? By definition, to follow-up is to pursue or investigate something further. To put this in context, it is the act of making contact with a patient or caregiver at a later, specified date to check on the patient's progress since their last appointment.
Follow-up appointments are as important to a patient and to a doctor. Essentially, they improve the outcome and quality of your treatment by providing another opportunity for your healthcare provider to make further assessments, adjust treatment plans and give you an opportunity to ask questions or seek further clarification.
Missed follow-up appointments can have a detrimental impact on your health. For patients who miss or ignore their follow-up appointments, there is an added concern of medical conditions going untreated or undetected.
We understand that for some patients, follow-up care can be confusing, time consuming, and financially burdensome. In response to this, we have taken measures to improve this experience through our innovative solutions.
