Hospital Success Story
A premier healthcare institute located in Kerala with over 3 decades of experience in healthcare services wanted to implement digital strategies to help improve its operational efficiency and patient care.

To streamline the appointment booking process
To reduce the workload of front office staff
To minimize the no-show rate
To eliminate the long queues at the reception counters
To employ a digital feedback system and collect maximum patient feedback
BestDoc proposed its comprehensive suite of solutions
The Hospital accelerated their digital transformation efforts by leveraging BestDoc’s unique set of hospital software solutions
Organising the Patient Journey
BestDoc’s PRM solution helped the hospital improve patient engagement by streamlining the process across bookings, check-ins, payments, and feedback. IVR reminder calls and SMSs significantly reduced no-shows in the hospital. BestDoc’s CXEs also facilitated rescheduling for patients who had cancelled, thus reducing the revenues lost by the hospital.
The Web widget (an easy appointment-booking option embedded at the hospital’s website) helped patients self-book their appointments. This in turn reduced the workload of the front office team at the hospital.
Automating the Patient Intake Process
BestDoc’s award-winning product BestDoc Kiosk helped the Hospital streamline the patient intake process with faster check-ins and registrations. The kiosk helped reduce patient waiting times and also resulted in front-office efficiencies. BestDoc’s Customer Experience Executives helped patients use the kiosk optimally and increased adoption.
Driving Patient Feedback
BestDoc ran IVR Feedback calls to collect patient feedback. The BestDoc CXE team identified the exact pain points faced by the patients during their visit. Those details were entered in the BD Analytics for the hospital management to review and take necessary actions.
BestDoc generated engagement reports that helped the hospital to take corrective actions, such as rescheduling bookings or converting walk-ins to teleconsultations. This also helped the client keep a track on the daily bookings, check-ins, and other necessary metrics.
Enabling Virtual Patient Care
BestDoc Connect enabled the Hospital to provide uninterrupted care even during the COVID-19 crisis. Patients readily accepted this solution and were pleased to connect with their doctors from the comfort of their homes.
