A List of Reasons Why Youll Love Workpaths Features (Part 2 of 2)

Published 2018-11-18

There’s nothing better than a good to-do lists, especially when it’s all checked off! Lists bring order to our lives, reduce stress, and focus the mind. As technologists working to improve healthcare, our training calls for us to listen and to respond intentionally. To give our work the biggest meaning and impact, Workpath thrives most when we list our priorities, make them transparent, and then make them come to life through the features we create. Today, we’re continuing our two-part series highlighting the list of features we’ve created in 2018 just for you. While yesterday’s post focused on features for Office Users, today we give you our list of features created for your Mobile Users! 


Mobile Users


Let’s take a look at some of the features you requested and we delivered. The following list includes features we’ve designed to help you coordinate, dispatch, and improve care through our mobile app:

Features that can be “turned on” if needed:


-           Order Forms: Create “Orderer” accounts for providers so they can log into an order form to send appointment information to the labor force directly. 

-           Multiple times/days for an appointment: Patients can select multiple times/days (first choice, second choice, third, etc.) they are available for an appointment. These choices can be viewed by the Office Users in the “dispatch center” where they can select a time that works for the labor.


Just for Patients:


-           Patient GPS Tracking: We’ve created this feature so you can easily text a link to your patients so they can track the route of the healthcare specialist who is en route, view their name and picture, see estimated time of arrival, and more. 



The best part about a good list is that once complete it sets the foundation for what comes next. That’s how you move forward. And that’s how Workpath is making the healthcare industry more efficient, more transparent, and more effective.
