Great post Anna! I am glad that you highlighted the fact that patient self-service technologies can create measurable efficiencies for hospitals, as is evident with the Vanguard story. We have a similar success story in Canada. Southlake, a hospital near Toronto, was able to redistribute 12 FTEs from their registration area to other sections of the hospital, and saved $400K in annual operations costs with a process redesign and by using patient online registration and check-in kiosk.
