Retrofitting Clinics for Self-Rooming toolkit available on HIPxChange

Self-rooming is a relatively new process where patients direct themselves to an assigned exam room immediately after checking in, bypassing the traditional waiting room experience where a staff member would escort them from the waiting room to the exam room.

PATH member, Sandra Kamnetz, MD developed the Retrofitting Clinics for Self-Rooming toolkit to provide a framework for implementing self-rooming in any primary care clinic, including those that were not intentionally designed for this purpose. The tool provides decision-makers with prerequisites to consider, tips, supplies needed, and the steps to implementation, as well as workflows for patient check-in and check-out.
