Since 2004, Clearwave has provided a streamlined check-in experience for orthopedic practices. Our intuitive, easy-to-use electronic process allows patients to check in faster and avoid lines. Check-in times are consistently reduced to three minutes or less, making patients happier and speeding up patient throughput.
System features such as real-time insurance eligibility and upfront payments help practices reduce rejected insurance claims and increase cash flow. In fact, Clearwave increases point-of-service collections up to 65%. Fewer potentially embarrassing patient questions or uncomfortable payment conversations ease the burden of front-desk staff. Due to our new normal, we have also updated our features to include zero-contact patient check-in, virtual waiting rooms and more in order to maintain the safety of staff and patients.
We’ve checked in and verified eligibility for more than 55 million patients in 43 states, and those numbers are growing daily, especially now with an increase in patient appointments due to what some practices are calling a “Post-COVID Rush.”
