Reduce call waiting times

By empowering your patients to book into appointments online, practices can ensure that staff time is used most appropriately – for example, by assisting patients who can’t access online services, managing the physical premise or conducting compliance.

Using Hero, rather than calling the practice or submitting a triage, patients are empowered to book directly into diary slots. This can be done either proactively, by reaching out to patients with our SMS booking links, or reactively, by exposing selected slots on your website for online booking.

How does it work?

By giving patients the ability to book high volume appointments online, you will drive patients away from the phone lines. Use Hero’s batch messaging function to capitalise on this:

Identify patient population eligible for a high-volume appointments (eg. Asthma Review)

Upload patient list to Hero and send out booking links via email or SMS

Patients book directly into your EMIS diary through the Hero link

Number of patient phone calls reduces significantly and waiting times drop
