HOW BESTDOC HELPED HIRANANDANI HOSPITAL STRENGTHEN ITS COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
BestDoc’s market-leading set of PRM solutions helped L H Hiranandani Hospital address the gaps in care and improve the patient experience across multiple touchpoints.
Post Covid-19, patients were reluctant to visit hospitals that resulted in a reduction of up to 75% in physical consultations. L H Hiranandani Hospital wanted to expand its outreach remotely to ensure uninterrupted care for its patients.
BestDoc’s teleconsultation solutions enabled their patients to book appointments online and connect with their care providers from the comfort of their homes. As a result, the hospital noticed a 90-95% increase in teleconsultations with 7,500+ teleconsultations facilitated during the pandemic.
Our contactless check-in solution created a safe environment for patientsand medical practice staff. BestDoc Connect was readily embraced by 350 doctors at the hospital. Our teleconsultation solution enabled doctors to keep a track of their online appointments. Additionally, doctors had easy access to patients’ medical records and had the provision of uploading the prescriptions without any hassle.
For the patients who were new to virtual consultation, BestDoc’s customer team prepped them through a mock telecall before the actual consultation with the doctor. We also created a preformed text template for prescriptions with clearly defined sections.
Patients could view the availability of doctors and get automated reminders and notifications for upcoming consultations. They could also request for refunds and receive prescriptions through SMS and email. The hospital call center could better connect with patients through automated communication.
Before BestDoc, their front office staff used to call each patient individually to book appointments, leading to a heavy workload. With BestDoc’s solutions, patients could book appointments through the hospital’s website appointment booking widget in just a few clicks. On an average, 20% of appointments were getting booked through the hospital website.
Additionally, patients were also offered online payment options for easy medical bill payments. This not just delivered a truly seamless experience to patients but also improved employee satisfaction while maximising appointment bookings.
Automated feedback survey forms were sent to the patients post their OP consultations. This encouraged patients to write both their concerns and appreciations about their care experience. BestDoc’s feedback solution also supported them with organising and analysing the received data in the form of reader-friendly graphs and charts.
Plus, the unique ticketing mechanism generates a ticket for every negative feedback received against the concerned department. Implementing this framework helped L H Hiranandani Hospital to identify the strengths and improvement areas in their service and make informed decisions to further improve their patient healthcare journey.
Deployment of BestDoc’s solution helped their doctors optimise and seamlessly manage their appointment schedules, making it more simplified and organised. With this solution, doctors were able to identify and track the status of their appointments in real-time which enabled a smoother flow of operations.
L H Hiranandani Hospital wanted to transform its relationship with patients and elevate their experience by adopting innovative digital solutions. BestDoc understood their care delivery model and identified the areas of growth in digitalisation.
