Know your patients

Collect and report on key UDS data about patients’ race, ethnicity, preferred language, sexual orientation, gender identity and more. Our proprietary logic helps you save time, simplify patient interviews and improve data accuracy.

Collect consents

Capture signatures for HIPAA agreements, financial policies and more. And with Phreesia’s robust integrations, updated consents are automatically captured in your PM.

Monitor your intake process

Deliver comprehensive, high-quality care

Streamline clinical intake, collect patient-reported data and easily administer screening tools.

With Phreesia, you can capture medical, family and social histories before each visit, giving clinicians the information they need to have more meaningful patient encounters. Phreesia helps you address patients’ non-medical health risks by asking privately about their access to food, housing and other social needs, and close gaps in care with customizable outreach messaging.

Phreesia also helps FQHCs deliver targeted screenings—such as the PHQ-9, PRAPARE, GAD-7, AUDIT-C and more—to gather critical health data from patients, calculate their risk scores and give care teams real-time access to the results.

Now that Phreesia handles the delivery of the PHQ-9 automatically, providers have the information they need before they enter the exam room. This is a critical piece of the workflow, and providers are able to be proactive instead of reactive … It also gives us the tools to identify and treat patients in a consistent and streamlined way.”

Support value-based care reporting 

Value-based care models rely on robust, accurate patient data to measure quality of care. And with Phreesia, you can gather the right data for your needs.

Phreesia helps you automatically capture data for a variety of quality measures—including cervical cancer screening, fall risk assessment, documentation of current medications and many others—during registration. With seamless data collection, you can more easily report on patients’ responses to intake interviews.

From help with data collection for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) quality measures, to pertinent data to the Uniform Data System (UDS) or even Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) accreditation support, Phreesia helps you get self-reported patient data when it counts.

Phreesia has helped us achieve many of our goals to improve patients’ health outcomes. By working with Phreesia’s implementation team, we were able to tailor our questions to gather the data we needed for specific grant requirements and quality measures.”

Address social needs at scale 

Health centers like yours are a safety net for medically underserved communities, many of which are disproportionately impacted by social needs. But without a scalable way to allocate limited staff, it can be challenging to connect patients with the support they need. 

That’s why we developed a social-needs workflow tailored specifically for CHCs and FQHCs. Here’s how it works:  

  1. Patients complete SDOH screening from their own device or in-office hardware 
  2. Patients are prompted to complete the Patient Activation Measure (PAM) and are assigned an activation score 
  3. Higher-activated patients are routed to a self-service workflow, and lower-activated patients can be connected with a community health worker or other care team member to receive 1:1 support

Within just five months of implementing the workflow, HealthLinc—an FQHC in northern Indiana—saw a 43% increase in productivity, enabling the organization to connect far more patients with the social resources they need.
