Specialists will now have access to the same system that some GPs use to manage patient bookings online, as HotDoc and Genie launch their new system for specialists.
The platform has been co-developed by the two companies over the past year to optimise for specialists’ needs.
For instance, the system allows patients to book appointments, but it also gives specialists the ability to triage appointments using Genie.
The system also takes into account the fact that specialists work in different locations.
“I see a world where a patient doesn’t just see their preferred GP on the homescreen of the HotDoc app but their whole treating team; a world where managing a chronic disease becomes that much easier,” HotDoc CEO Ben Hurst said.
