The new lobby system is based on a paper free concept, a first in Fortis Healthcare and will be a one stop shop system bringing all the aspects of processes that a patient has to go through, from admission to the time of discharge. The newly launched lobby has a range of new of services such dedicated rooms for patient admissions, patient counselling and managing queries related to billing for cash, credit, TPA, International and PSU patients. The lobby is equipped with a dedicated pantry and a dedicated washroom for handicapped patients as per the guidelines of NABH. Upon admission, patients will be escorted to respected area, room, ICU or ward.
Dr. Somesh Mittal, Zonal Director, FEHI said, “Time is of essence for the attendants and our patients. Keeping this in mind the system with advanced technology has been used to upgrade the processes to further reduce anxiety and bring in a higher level of customer experience. We are confident that the new system will help to reduce the stress that patients or attendants incur in running from one point to another in securing medical care for their loved ones.”
Research indicates that from the time a patient is brought in the hospital, to the time he is discharged, the patient and attendants have to go through a lot of stress and anxiety, often running to multiple touch points in the hospital. The different points which he has to connect with, to complete the formalities of the admission process add to the effort, impact in loss of productive time. As brands step up the search for new and innovative ways to enhance their competitiveness and get ahead of the growth curve, a new generation of technologies is coming into play to cut down the processes and improve productivity.
