6 INNOVATIVE WAYS THAT LILY HELPS DOCTORS SURGERIES TO RUN MORE EFFICIENTLY
At Lily, we always look to create efficiencies and tailor our solutions to help our customers work smarter, not harder. These are just some of the ways that we’ve tailored our solutions to the specific needs of healthcare.
1. Be setup for busy periods
The demand for health care is high, so that’s why having visibility of call statistics is crucial as it provides a wealth of knowledge. The data allows you to identify easily who is on the phone, the length of calls and calls which are waiting to be answered. Your call statistics can all be monitored live from your wallboard allowing you to respond immediately if more resource is needed.
2. Integration with your CRM
Our solution integrates with popular front house CRM systems such as System One and Emis web. The integration helps make your processes more streamlined and efficient.
3. Keep your patients informed
Communicating with callers is essential; we can setup a queue status to inform them of their place in the queue. To improve the customers experience, we can give your patients the option to select a call back whilst keeping their place in the current queue, this allows them to get on with other tasks and saves them waiting on hold.
4. Be there for patients ‘out of hours’
We understand it’s important to be there for your patients when you are closed. If patients happen to need assistance for an emergency, we can connect them to 111 so they can communicate with a medical professional without adding further delay.
5. Improve your flu jab process
Flu jabs are essential in fighting viruses in the winter season. Using our technology, we can setup a dedicated voicemail to email service allowing patients to leave their details to be called back when is best for you. This is a great way to efficiently run this service, allowing you to be in control of booking appointments.
6. Direct calls to the pharmacy
In order to avoid calls coming through to your surgery which are simply for repeat prescriptions, we can setup call options to ensure these calls are directed to the correct place, the first time.
These are six ways Lily supports doctor surgeries in being more efficient, all because we want to help streamline tasks and reduce pressure where we can as we understand there is always a huge demand for healthcare, especially in the current climate with the Coronavirus pandemic.
