Intouch with Health Virtual Clinics reduces patient numbers into hospital

Virtual Clinics has been designed to reduce the number of patients entering hospital by providing a virtual and video consultations solution, helping clinical teams deliver round-the-clock patient centred care with minimal set-up and training required

Virtual Clinics connects clinicians and patients virtually, removing the requirement for patients to attend hospital for their clinic appointment or consultation.

Virtual Clinics is the future-proof virtual consultation solution designed to fully integrate into the Intouch Platform – the prime provider of patient flow across the NHS and increasingly, healthcare organisations internationally. This solution can also be utilised as a stand-alone solution.

Deployed rapidly enabling NHS Trusts to realise key benefits quickly, Virtual Clinics offers PAS integration and patient authentication to match patients to their appointment, as well as a host of additional benefits from hosting virtual and video consultations.

Requiring minimal training and set-up time, Virtual Clinics offers an intuitive interface to new users and familiarity for existing users of the Intouch Platform. Patients check-in for their appointment using the same interface they would use at check-in kiosks at the hospital, and clinicians launch the solution through Flow Manager (which many clinicians already use).

Key benefits:

  • Immediately reduce traffic into hospital
  • Deployed in just a few days
  • Remote deployment available (providing technical infrastructure meets minimum requirements)
