FRANKLIN, Wis. - Sept. 4, 2020 - PRLog -- Healthcare organizations such as Intermountain Healthcare and Baylor Scott & White have already implemented a digital front door strategy in the form of a modern patient app. There are multiple definitions of the digital front door. Healthtech Magazine offers the following definition: "The digital front door is an integrated digital strategy for engaging patients at every step along their healthcare journey." John Lynn, founder of stated, "I think we're actually seeing two new digital front doors happening in healthcare: the Patients' Entrance to Healthcare and Digital Check-In."

No matter the source, everyone agrees that a healthcare digital front door is a key part of one's patient engagement strategy, which focuses on an enhanced digital experience. "The digital front door is not just a patient portal or website with a suite of self-service tools, but what it should be, is a client-branded mobile app with all the rich functionality of their patient portal, website tools and other patient engagement features," said John Deutsch, CEO of Bridge Patient Portal.
Why do you need one?

Save money

To keep up with the ever-evolving needs of patients, healthcare organizations often leverage multiple patient engagement solutions. Implementing a digital front door as part of your sole patient engagement solution reduces cost. One solution that performs multiple functions is cheaper than multiple piecemealed systems trying to perform the same functionality.

Simplify patient engagement

It's also easier to maintain and manage one digital front door healthcare solution, resulting in a decrease in labor, rather than the staff effort required to manage multiple systems, which attempt to perform all of your patient engagement functionalities.
