    Appointments & Notifications

    Designed to help GP surgeries manage the demand for appointments and reduce the administrative burden on staff.

     

    Automated workflows can be programmed in advance. For example, automated messages can be triggered when no further appointment slots are available; saving time for both staff and patients.

     

    A single call handler at one location can support appointment setting across multiple practices. Alternatively, patients can leverage self-service functionality to book, check, edit or cancel appointments using voice recognition, providing further process efficiencies.

    Call Handling & Recording

    Advanced contact centre and call handling functionality provides essential call management support for primary care institutions and enables patients to access a range of healthcare services, either through a single contact number or surgery-specific numbers.

     

    • advanced call routing options- support for telephone triage
    • call and video consultation recordings can be linked to individual patient records
    • single click calling of patients from clinical records
    • queue busting options with automatic callback
    • leverage calendar events to control hours and days of operation
    • compliant call monitoring for staff training

    Reporting and Analytics

    Surgery Connect comes with a suite of intuitive management reporting tools that enable detailed analysis of everything from call volumes to average call duration, time to answer, call abandonment levels and more.

     

    Run, publish and share reports with staff and practice managers as required. Browse summary reports or drill down to granular detail to identify any areas where improvements can be made.

     

    Surgery Connect delivers a wealth of business intelligence, helping practice managers to make better informed decisions and improve call flows and patient engagement. An optional wallboard can provide admin staff with real-time call statuses, further supporting rapid decision making and the re-allocation of resources to meet changes in demand.

    Video Consultation

    During the pandemic, the use of video consultation enabled significant numbers of patients to “see” their medical practitioner without leaving their home.

     

    Now a mandated NHS requirement, video consultations improve patient access and increase practice efficiency, providing an effective vehicle for patient triage.

     

    Surgery Connect provides a secure, reliable video service, accessible at any time. Clinicians send a unique, single-use link to patients, via SMS or email. The patient simply clicks the link, there’s no need to download an app, and the video session begins.

     

    The video service is fully integrated, so clinicians are free to move between phone and video calls as required. All video calls are encrypted for patient security and confidentiality.
