Quick and easy SMS and Email messaging to patients. Invite patients to book appointments with unique one-time links.
Retrieve your patients’ details from the spine (via PDS) and write SMS and Email communications directly from within the Hero platform.
Hero is integrated with Firetext for secure SMS and Egress for secure email.
Within messages sent from Hero, you can include unique, one-time links to book appointments. Each link is specific for the named patient, so cannot be shared or reused.
Upon receipt of an appointment link, patients confirm their identity by entering their date of birth. They then choose an appointment slot, complete and associated forms, and confirm the booking.
Patients are sent appointment confirmation communication, reminders and cancellation messages.
Want to empower patients to choose their own appointment time and manage their booking online, but don’t want to expose slots via your website? Then Hero’s self booking links are the solution.
Using booking links sent via SMS or Email, you can invite patients to book online at their convenience, but without needing to make appointment times globally visible via your website.
You retain the benefit of a 'closed' diary, whilst also gaining the automation of online booking.
Once a patient has completed a booking online, they can also cancel or reschedule online, further reducing admin workload.
