FootFall is designed to help patients navigate their way to find help in exactly the way they would if they walked into reception. The home page of FootFall is clearly laid out to help patients manage their health more easily and request advice from a health professional.
It means people are getting the help they need quicker and more conveniently. For practices it reduces the pressure on phone, helps them manage their time more effectively and keep face to face appointment for those who really need it.
Practices can use FootFall to digitally triage their appointments. This approach encourages patients to go online and request advice or an appointment without having to phone the practice.
Patients can ask questions and report symptoms. The practice then looks at the request and responds within a stated timeframe, connecting the patient to the right person, service or support.
Never miss a request from a patient; get notified when the request is approaching its deadline for response.
Find out how Fakenham Medical Practice has reduced waiting times for appointments from four weeks to 72 hours using FootFall and a digital triage approach.
FootFall’s video consultation feature enables GPs to continue treating patients even if their surgery is force to close and can be deployed where the increased demand on GP services means that patients cannot get regular appointments.
