Taking the burden out of transition to video consultations during COVID-19
As the coronavirus pandemic escalates, there has been considerable impact on planned care. While many appointments have been cancelled, there is still clinical need to review new referrals, or to follow-up with existing patients.
Switching from in-person consultations to video calls is a great way to ensure care continuity and many types of appointments can be conducted this way. The problem, however, is how to communicate video links to patients in a timely manner – without creating extra work for staff.
Lumeon’s automated appointment reminder solution enables video links and instructions to be shared with patients within a series of SMS messages. It takes away a lot of the administration burden from switching to digital, so staff can focus on critical care.
- Ensure important clinical care continues
- Divert patients to video call without having to re-book appointments
- Rapid deployment – get started quickly
