HotDoc launches vaccination booking projects with major hospitals
Patient engagement platform HotDoc is working with two of the biggest hospitals in Australia to allow for the safe COVID-19 and influenza vaccination of staff and patients.
Starting this week, the Austin Hospital in Melbourne will be provided with a complete scheduling solution, eligibility screening and stock management for AstraZeneca and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations, as well as booking online or via call centre. Austin is expecting to work through approximately 1000 COVID-19 vaccination appointments each day through the HotDoc system.
HotDoc CEO Ben Hurst said it was great to see a major hospital utilising the HotDoc vaccine booking solution.
“The HotDoc COVID-19 vaccine solution has been used to book in over 2.5 million Australians at our GP network across the country, and our hospital solution will only help to speed up the rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations in Victoria. Having a booking system that is a great experience for patients, allowing for the bookings of the first and second dose, is key to an efficient rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine,” he said.
Another project with St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney will manage the booking administration of influenza vaccinations for staff members and will include existing features such as walk-ins, appointment calendars and online consent forms. New features will include online patient verification check enhancements (Medicare check) and Australian Immunisation Register integration to submit immunisation records.
“Working with hospitals to ensure their staff are vaccinated is a real thrill for HotDoc and aligns further with our mission to improve the healthcare experience for everyone in Australia,” Hurst said. “We look forward to long partnerships with these hospitals into the future.”
