Reduce administrative burden for reception staff

Practice telephone data shows that the average call duration for front desk staff is 4-6 minutes (varies by receptionist). Considering calls for rescheduling and cancelling, this means reception staff could be spending upwards of 10 minutes on the phone per booking into a clinical system diary.

With Hero Health, patients can be empowered to book online – either directly via your website, or via an SMS or Email invitation. Once a booking is completed, patients can then manage this appointment including rescheduling and cancelling.

Automated scheduling has the potential to save you substantial administrative time (and headache!), whilst also delighting patients by giving them the freedom and flexibility to choose a slot that works for them.

How does it work?

Admins can send booking links to patients they would ordinarily have to call.

You can drive traffic away from your phone lines by putting dynamic booking links on your website that allow patients to schedule appointments online

Patients can cancel and reschedule their appointments online so no longer need to call the practice

Patients can cancel and reschedule enhanced access appointments

Attach forms to capture patient information before and after the booking.
