We are delighted to announce that we have launched online appointment booking for GP patients in our Socrates system. We have partnered with Swiftqueue to enable Irish GP practices to accept online bookings from their patients for the very first time. This means that patients can now book an appointment with any GP using the system via their phone, tablet or computer as easily as they would order a takeaway, bank online or book a flight.
The below video explains the partnership as well as some of the benefits that it will offer to users:
Swiftqueue power online bookings for healthcare professionals. They have been providing digital healthcare scheduling solutions to organisations like the HSE and NHS for the last 9 years and the system is used in Sites across Ireland, the UK, the US and Canada. This experience has helped to develop Swiftqueue into a complete on booking solution that is now integrated directly with Socrates GP so that patients can book their appointments online.
Online appointment scheduling can help to reduce:
- Phone call traffic
- Patient waiting times
- Administration costs
- Time spent by practice administration staff managing appointments
