Traditional vaccine scheduling for housebound patients is complex and can create a significant administrative and clinical workload for primary care organisations.
GP Federation Conexus Healthcare engaged with Doc Abode to help streamline the co-ordination of its vaccination programme for housebound and care home patients in Wakefield with an initial deployment to Health Care First network.
Using intelligent automation, Doc Abode delivered efficiencies in the vaccination scheduling process, freeing up administrative and clinical staff to deliver core primary care services.
For healthcare providers, each organisation has a real-time view of schedules and the ability to easily re-assign or reschedule appointments in the event of short notice cancellation from staff or patients due to sickness / self-isolation.
Clinicians are kept informed of their schedule through a secure app which also included notifications of appointment changes.
“Coordinating the vaccination of 1500 care home residents and staff plus 800+ housebound patients is extremely time consuming. By using the Doc Abode app, we turned 10 days’ work into one simple click!” David Lighten, Community Nurse Practitioner, Health Care First.
