The Door is a Federally Qualified Health Center serving thousands of New York City youth with comprehensive health, counseling, and career guidance services — primary care, mental health counseling, legal and immigration services, and art, dance, and nutrition classes. The Door has worked with eClinicalWorks since 2013 but needed a way to strength Patient Engagement.


After months of planning and staff meetings, The Door brought in the healow Patient Relationship Management (PRM) Services team in July 2017 to improve workflows and marketing at the Adolescent Health Center. Providers, staff, and clients received training on Kiosk, Patient Portal, the healow app, and Messenger campaigns.


With training and marketing materials from healow PRM Services, staff at The Door have improved workflows, improved communications among providers, and given patients new tools, including the ability to request appointments, view lab records, and receive messages online. The Door has seen an increase in patients using their services.
