How It Works

ChronicFocus is a web-based app that resides online in the cloud. This means it can run on any connected device such as a PC, tablet, smartphone, iPad, etc. It can also be run from anywhere, at any time that’s convenient for you.

Once you sign up, you are given access via a secure username and password. This allows you to access all your practice data securely and uniquely.

You login to ChronicFocus to enter your patient demographics. This only need to be done once. In future, patients will be uniquely identified by their ID number. Patients can be super-conveniently searched for by any criteria – address, cell number, email, employer, etc. Use the file number reference to manually retrieve the patient file physically from your filing cabinet.

Encounter or visit details are easily captured, indicating chronic condition status, diagnosis, treatment, medication and recall visit date.

Not every chronic patient needs to be recalled, but for those that do, we create an entry into the reminder recall register.

Here we input the date we wish to see the patient, the reason for the reminder, what the patient’s chronic condition is, and whether the patient should be contacted by SMS, email or telephone call.

Periodically (we suggest once-a-week), we would run a list of of all the recalls for that week. These patients can then be either bulk-sms’d, emailed or call individually to book an appointment. This saves massive amounts of time and frees up your staff to perform other important patient-care tasks.

ChronicFocus will reduce costs, increase quality of care
