Following a great discussion with our CTO, some thoughts on why we need Digital by Design and not Digital by Default when thinking about #digitalhealth https://t.co/zO4mkFTL6f
Our new online patient booking and management system was launched in March 2018 with technology provider, DrDoctor. Once fully rolled out, this will mean Salford Royal has the most advanced online patient booking and management system in NHS North West region. It will enable patients to proactively manage and own their healthcare.
James Sumner, Chief Officer, said: “This is a very exciting new service for Salford patients. When fully rolled out, we will have an extremely advanced online patient management facility which will empower patients to control their appointments.
“We continue to improve patient experience by being more flexible and giving more choice. In addition, we will be reducing the number of unattended appointments, cutting waiting times and vastly reducing the number of patient letters we send out.”
