Patient Engagement: Leveraging Technology for Good
Technological advancements and developments in our society continue to evolve at what at times feels like warp speed. We are grateful for a local medical software partner, TriMed Technologies (https://www.trimedtech.com/), that serves to keep us on the cutting edge of technology and ways to regularly engage with patients and families.
Here is a summary of our current tools that many of you are familiar with: a website (https://www.triadpediatrics.com/) that allows you to register and book appointments online; a patient portal that allows you to view records and send secure messages to nurses and providers; and texting features that allow you to confirm or cancel appointments, as well as let us know when you have arrived for an appointment and check-in online (which saves time and cuts down on the use of paper!).
We appreciate how many of you have asked, “How is Dr. Dillard and his family? And, “When are they planning to return?”
Overall they are doing well. The demands and difficulties of Dr. Dillard’s work at Tenwek are definitely painful and tiring. But the Lord has sustained them up to this point, and we trust that His provision will continue to provide and sustain as they enter this final phase of their period of service at Tenwek. Lord willing, they plan to return to the states this summer and then hopefully he will be ready to begin seeing patients again late summer, early fall. Please continue to pray for faithfulness and strength for his entire family.
