OBERD Unveils "Assess Yourself"; A Pre-Appointment Patient Triage Tool


COLUMBIA, Mo., [July 13, 2023] /PRNewswire/-- OBERD, a leading innovator in healthcare technology, is proud to announce the release of its new outpatient self-triage tool; Assess Yourself.

Completed before scheduling an appointment, this tool combines Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) with OBERD’s body-marker pain-scale. Utilizing a database of over 2.6 million validated and distributed orthopedic forms (200,000 hip, 500,000 spine, 550,000 knee and 1.4 million additional), this tool accurately assesses patient conditions to schedule them with the appropriate provider.

The initial release of Assess Yourself will be orthopedic only and includes three separate offerings:

Public Marketing:

Using a public website, new patients provide condition and contact information directly to our system. This data is quickly transmitted to the clinic’s call center, allowing for prompt follow-up with the patient. The patient is then scheduled with an appropriate provider based on their condition, allowing for efficient patient communication and scheduling.

Integrated Site:

When a patient calls, their information is entered into the clinic's system and seamlessly passed to OBERD. The patient will receive an automated email with the assessment, allowing them to conveniently provide details on their condition. We then generate personalized recommendations for the clinic, who finalizes scheduling the appointment. This streamlined option inputs patient information directly into the clinic’s system, reducing scheduling burden.


With this option, OBERD distributes an automated email to existing patients inviting them to utilize Assess Yourself. Once the patient completes the assessment, we analyze and send the results to the clinic. With this information, the call center can schedule any necessary appointments, allowing for targeted interventions, increased patient engagement and better health outcomes.
