A better experience for rheumatology patients and staff 

An estimated 1 in 4 U.S. adults live with a doctor-diagnosed rheumatic disease—and that means rheumatologists are stretched thin. Coupled with market consolidation and a continued shift toward alternative payment models, provider organizations are looking for new ways to maximize efficiency and stand out from the competition. 

That’s why Phreesia helps rheumatology groups manage every step of the patient journey—registration, payments, scheduling, referrals, clinical services and more. Our platform helps you automate time-consuming tasks so you can focus on getting patients the care they need sooner. Better yet, patients love using it: 94% of rheumatology patients have a positive experience using Phreesia, including 91% of patients age 65 and older.

Receive referral

Mary has had morning stiffness and swelling in her hands and wrists for weeks, and NSAIDs aren’t helping. Her primary care provider refers her to a nearby rheumatology practice that uses Phreesia, so the referral is automatically tracked and digitized. Then, the practice sends Mary an automated message confirming her referral—along with a link for her to self-schedule an appointment.

Schedule visit

Mary clicks the link and is taken to a scheduling form. The form is customized to match her to the right appointment type, provider and location.

Complete registration

A few days before the visit, Mary receives a text message or email prompting her to pre-register. She confirms her demographic information, medical history and insurance coverage, then provides her e-signature for applicable consents. Upon submission, Phreesia verifies Mary’s eligibility and benefits and shares the information with the rheumatology practice’s staff.

Report clinical history

Since the reason for Mary’s referral was documented in the referral and on the appointment request form, she is automatically prompted to complete the Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID3)—an outcome measure that helps Mary’s provider assess how her symptoms are affecting her daily life.

Make payment

Mary needs to pay her copay before arriving for the visit. She reviews the visit charges on her mobile phone, then selects Apple Pay® for a quick, convenient checkout.

Meet with provider

Mary arrives on time and checks in beforehand. And because she completed all the necessary intake tasks ahead of time, Mary’s rheumatologist spends more time addressing her needs and having a productive, meaningful encounter.

Complete survey

When the appointment ends, Mary gets a text message asking her to fill out a satisfaction survey. After completing it, she is prompted to share an online review about her visit.
