Empowering patients to manage their own care is a strategic priority for the NHS. Hero’s appointment management enables practices to invite patients to book selected appointment slots, giving patients the freedom to select an appropriate time, date and practitioner (or decline to book altogether).
Via Hero Health, patients are passed booking confirmations, appointment reminders and post-appointment follow-ups. They can reschedule or cancel appointments as needed.
Not only does Hero meet this strategic priority and drive patient satisfaction, it also reduces front-desk workload. With appointment booking often taking 5 minutes or longer over the phone (not including rescheduling or cancelling calls), substantial time is saved – and with patients empowered to independently cancel appointments, Hero will also reduce DNAs.
Hero is an easy-to-use platform that enables you to communicate with patients, capture structured data through SNOMED-codable questionnaires, and automate your appointment scheduling.
Use Hero to quickly connect with your patients. Communicate via SMS or email, share attachments, gather data through simple structured forms or automate your appointment scheduling.
