"We are thrilled to offer this new service to our community," commented Carlton Jacobson, CFO of HMH. "By using this new service, our patients will have a much faster visit to the registration department prior to their scheduled procedure. This is a great customer service which will reduce patient wait times."

In order to pre-register, patients will need to know the date, time and type of procedure such as surgery, MRI or a Mammogram. Once this information is known, the patient simply can go to www.howardhospital.org and look for the "Pre-Register online now" button on the home page. The patient will then enter date, time, insurance ID, type of procedure, and where it is scheduled along with personal contact information.

"Patients will still need to go to registration on the day of the procedure to pick up their ID wrist band, and sign key documents," stated Jacobson. "However, most of the work can be done at home so that the patient can reduce wait times."
