Phreesia is a privately held company focused on patient check-in. The company replaces the outdated patient clipboard in physician offices with a free wireless touch screen and swipe card enabled PhreesiaPad. Phreesia automates the patient check-in process by collecting personal health information on the PhreesiaPad from the patient in a secure and
HIPAA-compliant fashion. The product is designed to interface with physicians’ existing and future technology and is compatible with electronic medical records (EMRs)
Phreesia does not require any changes to the physician workflow and captures comprehensive patient information that can automatically be printed to reports for administrative and clinical staff. The company also improves the patient experience by better preparing them for their appointments, offering up-to-date health education relevant to their medical concerns, and enabling them to verify, rather than re-enter, information recorded at previous visits to the medical practice.
The company draws on the expertise of a leading Medical Advisory Board and has initiated a series of patient care initiatives that concentrate on both wellness and disease prevention. The company is backed by premier venture capital firms and has received $13.25 million in financing to date.
