Automated Booking System
This system was installed in March 2009. You can now check yourself in at our touch screen self check in monitor.This enables you to let the doctor or nurse know that you have arrived for your appointment without having to wait behind a long queue at the reception desk or when the receptionist is occupied on the telephone.
Patients simply enter their date of birth via a touch screen keypad, or through unique fingerprint technology on the monitor to confirm their arrival.If you would like to use the 'fingerprint technology' to check yourself in for your appointment, please ask at the reception.
The system verifies the data and within seconds, confirms the patient's identity, doctor and time of appointment on-screen whilst simultaneously alerting the receptionist to their arrival on the EMIS system. This should prove to be useful for patients as they can book in themselves rather than having to wait at the reception desk.
Patient Call System
Envisage is an advanced visual information system that combines health awareness with communication and patient call. The practice can run a series of promotional health adverts and practice-focused messages - whilst at the same time calling patients to their appointments. A screen has been installed to convey important messages to patients while they are waiting for their appointment.
