San Jose, CA (11-29-11) – Two San Jose hospitals are the first in Santa Clara County to
offer patients online pre-registration for their upcoming procedures.
Patients at Regional Medical Center of San Jose and Good Samaritan Hospital
are now able to pre-register online through each hospital’s website.
This specifically includes patients who already have a procedure scheduled
such as surgery or diagnostic imaging, expectant women needing to pre-register
for their baby’s delivery and Breast Care Center patients. Patients
may also request appointments for screening mammography on-line.
Mike T. Johnson, CEO of Regional, said, "Today’s consumers have
come to assume quick and easy, personalized business encounters —
from online banking to booking airline tickets. With Online Pre-Registration,
we are providing healthcare options to our patients with the level of
service and choice they expect."
"This online approach helps to ensure that we have accurate and updated
insurance and personal information about the patients, and simplifies
the registration process once patients arrive at our facility," said
Paul Beaupré MD, CEO of Good Samaritan. "This gives our patients
increased control of their healthcare experience and greater flexibility
in the pre-registration process."
Online Pre-Registration offers security as well as convenience. The program
is an initiative of Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), the largest
private hospital system in the country.
To pre-register online, patients go to the hospital website and select
Online Pre-Registration. More information for our patients can be found
on the hospital websites.
