In the fight to halt the spread of Coronavirus, Savience is enhancing its Reminder Service to send specific messages to advise patients not to turn up for appointments if they’re displaying any of the early symptoms; cough, fever, and shortness of breath.
The development comes amid calls from customers in Canada, including William Osler Health System in Ontario, as part of a package of preventative measures to combat the virus. This includes a host of communications about Covid-19.
Linked to the Meditech patient system, the service will allow the hospital to send ad-hoc emails, voice or text messages to patients with upcoming appointments.
‘As a small, agile company we’re able to muster resources to respond quickly to needs of our customers,’ said Savience’s managing director, Roger Everitt.
