PATIENT SUPPORT SYSTEM

The hospital has recently adopted patient support systems to improve access to care. All enrolled patients are encouraged to register in and update their TRICAREonline.com account. Primary care visits are Web-enabled, which means patients can make their appointments online anytime at their convenience. Even better, TRICAREonline.com now offers both email and text message patient reminder notices. Register today at www.TRICAREonline.com.

The hospital Patient Centered Medical Homes have all established the Army Secure Messaging System, which offers patients a safe way to message their primary care manager (PCM). Patients may register during their first visit with their PCM and are encouraged to use this system for medical guidance and advice, prescription renewals, etc.

The hospital also offers AudioCARE, an automated patient appointment reminder system, which calls patients the evening before a scheduled appointment. To protect privacy, patients may be asked to validate their birth date. The system leaves reminder messages on answering machines and allows patients to confirm or cancel appointments if necessary.

Appointments: The hospital’s appointment line at 866-299-4234 is available 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; however, TRICARE online is always available and offers a wide range of primary care appointments.
