Transitional Care

Scheduling Optimisation

New York Area Hospital, USA

The Challenge

  • No-show appointments create a significant drag on both utilisation of resources and ability to provide timely patient care
  • Many reasons why patients miss appointments, making a single solution difficult
  • Incorrect contact information is spotted too late to make a difference in attendance

The Solution

  • Outbound call campaign utilising a blend of automated reminder and live reminder calls
  • Analysis of clinic-specific response data to tailor approach and decrease no-shows

 


The Results

  • Appointment reminder programme: 95% of clinics decreased their no show rates
  • Range from 15-43% decrease in no-shows when compared to baseline
  • Standardisation of operating procedures across clinics enabling best practice sharing
