Engage Health Systems has announced the integration of one of its core products, Engage Consult, with our clinical system Vision 3, as part of the Cegedim Healthcare Solutions’ Partner Programme.
The Norfolk-based software company specialises in digital patient-facing solutions for the primary care sector of the NHS, helping practices enhance efficiencies and boost patient access.
Engage Consult is an online patient to doctor, non-emergency engagement platform which allows patients to communicate safely and securely online with their practice via video and messaging consultations.
The easy to use platform is accessed by the touch of a screen, and the patient follows the steps to verify their identity and book in for their appointment. Over 66 million patients in surgeries across the UK have successfully checked in using one of these touchscreens.
The platform provides practices with a total triage solution, the ability to simplify administrative tasks and free up time and resources for clinical and admin teams.Speaking about the partnership, Claire Flynn, Engage Consult Product Manager, said:
“Engage Consult is already used by hundreds of General Practices and millions of patients across England. By cementing our long and established relationship with Cegedim Healthcare Solutions and by integrating with Vision 3, we’re proud to provide safe and convenient ways for patients to access appropriate healthcare and advice. As we head into our second lockdown, Engage Consult allows patients and GPs to be better connected, better supported and better engaged.”
Additionally, Lana Chubakha, Commercial Director, Cegedim Healthcare Solutions, comments:
“In line with our belief that technology should be an enabler for the delivery of safe and effective care, we are pleased to welcome this latest integration with Engage Consult. Allowing patients to more readily access care from the safety and comfort of their own home has never been more important. We are confident that our partnership with Engage Consult will support our GP customers in delivering an enhanced level of care to their patients, who in turn will benefit from greater access.”
The official rollout of the integration with Vision 3 started earlier this month. As part of the announcement, alongside Engage Health Systems, we are currently offering Vision 3 customers a free three-month trial of Engage Consult.
