Patient Contact Resources

March 28, 2010

As you are probably aware, the new FHT contract, which came into effect on April 1, 2018, requires that teams "make reasonable efforts to ensure the option of email communications is available for patients." To help you with this, AFHTO has partnered with Cliniconex and Cognisant MD (Ocean) to make their patient contact systems available to your team at a discount. These packages are available on a first-come, first-served basis. See below for details.

Cliniconex

  • Using the 1,000 free transactions to send out the Patient Perceptions of Patient-Centeredness (PPPC) survey to at least 1000 patients
