The problem we solve: Common Medical Practice Bottlenecks include: Long lines at the front desk Overworked staff Manual Data Entry Security issues Low collections Low patient portal registrants Insufficient data TONS of paper Costs of paper and shredding, “Old way of doing things” Front desk turnover rates- Employees that are sick, take medical leave, are late, or even lazy
About our solution: With OTech solutions, patients will arrive themselves to their appointment using kiosks and tablets, completing many important tasks. Discrete patient data can be verified and updated in real time- in both and PM and EHR. This eliminates the need for scanning and manual entry, reducing and eliminating common medical record errors.Progress to date:
OTech is the pioneer of self-service in the healthcare industry. It was founded in 2004 when CEO, Bruce Steinhardt, was checking himself to his flight at the airport. At that time, Bruce was practice admin and CIO of a large pediatric clinic in IL. While checking in at the airport, he looked at his wife Donna and said, " There has to be a way to do this at the doctor's office."
To date, OTech has partnered with 100's of practices across 43 states. The partnerships and integrations we have developed over 14 years are critical to establish and maintain compatibility between your PM/EHR system and OTech software.

How We Address the Mission of The Challenge(s)Social Determinants Data Challenge: There are often gaps between patients and their healthcare. By taking the workload of 1000's of patients off the front desk staff using automated solutions, we can bridge that gap and provide patient's the care they deserve. Each person is unique and so should their healthcare experience.
