Surgery Connect Medical Practice Phone System
Self Funded and Improved Patient and Health Professional Communications
Surgery Connect improves communication paths between patients and staff using a suite of five services, including PBX, Alert, Appointment and Medication Reminders, Voice and SMS Messaging and Phone-in Noticeboard.
|"Highly convenient, time saving, and makes communication simple between hospital and patients and their families at home. Families respond to it readily as most people are very familiar with texting these days. I would highly recommend it to other health care professionals. We hope to be able to improve our communication particularly with teenagers by using this system."

Surgery Connect runs alongside existing communications infrastructure and can be managed via the Internet. This adds up to low setup and maintenance costs, minimal training requirement and high resilience.
Each Surgery Connect service can operate in isolation, integrate with others, or exchange data with third party systems.
Connecting Patients and Health Professionals
Surgery Connect provides efficient call handling ensuring patients get through first time. A lo-call rate number can be used to fund the service.
Practices can be linked enabling calls to be taken by another branch when branches are closed, or patients can be directed to an Out of Hours service using the simple-to-use online administration.
A sophisticated set of PBX style and call management features such as Call Queuing, ACD, Voicemail and Call Recording allows Practice Managers to greatly improve the phone system within a fixed rental agreement, in contrast to the additional capital investment a hardware solution would require.
