Kareo Engage Release Notes December 19, 2019

In December 2019, your Kareo Engage account will be upgraded to the latest version.

Kareo Kiosk on Android

The Kareo Kiosk app is an easy to use and intuitive experience for capturing patient demographics, contact information, financial details, signed consent forms, and medical histories in the office.

All the practice needs to do is download Kareo Kiosk onto their office’s Android mobile device (e.g., tablet) and scan the provided QR code within the patient’s appointment to get started. It’s as easy as that and takes less than 30 seconds to get a patient set up to fill out their paperwork!

Get Started

Download the Kareo Kiosk app from the Play Store using a supported Android device running Android 7 or later.

  1. Enable Screen Pinning on the device to prevent patients from navigating away from the app.
  2. Open the Kareo Kiosk app and login with your Kareo email credentials.
  3. Tap Let's get started! to pin the app. The Pin Screen confirmation screen opens.
  4. Tap Ok. The Scan Patient Intake QR Code screen opens.

Prepare Patient Intake

  1. From the Dashboard, click on the patient's appointment to view the appointment card.
  2. Click on the Patient Intake more options icon, then select Start Intake on Kiosk. The QR code pop-up window opens.
    Note: For this option to display, the patient intake must be sent to the patient first.
  1. Hold the device so the QR code appears in the camera viewfinder. Once scanned, the Patient Intake screen opens and is ready for the patient. 

Patient Experience

Hand the patient the device to begin the Patient Intake.

  1. The patient enters their date of birth for verification and taps Submit. The Patient Intake screen opens.
  2. The patient taps Get Started to complete the forms.
  3. Once submitted, the patient hands the device back to the front office.

The submitted patient intake is now ready for review in the web app.


Patient Intake: Section Selection
