Empowering Patients in Suburban Minneapolis


“So, 2:30 in the morning, 10 o’clock at night, whenever they think about something, or if their kid has a fever or pinkeye, they can schedule that, or go online and send a message to us through the healow app.”

A busy suburban Minneapolis pediatrics practice, with more than 40 providers and six locations, wanted to find ways to better serve their patients, particularly by offering them the peace of mind of being able to schedule appointments with the provider of their choice at any time.


South Lake Pediatric Group worked with the Patient Relationship Management (PRM) Services team from eClinicalWorks, implementing and training all staff on healow Open Access® for online appointment booking, Kiosk for check-in, and Patient Portal and healow apps for stronger Patient Engagement.


South Lake Pediatric Group’s patients love the new tools available to them, and now enjoy greater access to their physicians and the ability to book appointments at their convenience, day or night. More than 80% of the practice’s families use Patient Portal, and nearly all are connected through eClinicalWorks Messenger.
