The cost savings, estimated at £150-200k per year, are significant, but much more important is the powerful reporting, which shows us whether a patient has accepted their appointment or not.

Patients can book and reschedule all appointments, whether in person, on the phone or via video through a self-service portal. And they can request information and send messages. Meanwhile you get a real-time view of attendance and resource allocation.

Symptom checker and ‘car park’ queuing


As hospitals prepare to open up in-person appointments, it’s crucial to maintain site safety. With physical distancing measures in place, there will be reduced seating, which means patients may have to go to wait elsewhere in the hospital, in their car or wait outside.

Check for symptoms prior to the patient leaving home to avoid wasted journeys. Allow patients to check in remotely and let reception know they have arrived before entering the hospital.

See how I’ve Arrived in Patient Hub does just that.

A better way to deliver test results


The Patient Hub Result module allows you to deliver test results in the moment, securely and discreetly. Once test results are uploaded into the Patient Hub, the patient receives an SMS message that prompts them to log into their account. After a quick two-factor authentication check, they can view their results. It’s that simple.

Case studies


Despite routinely sending appointment reminder letters to patients, there was no process for patients to confirm whether they were attending or not. The poor DNA rates equated to over 30,000 missed appointments per year and a cost more than £2.8 million, every single year. Find out how Ipswich Hospital turned this around.
