11 Jan 2022

Overview

This Canadian medical facility stands out as the largest organization in its region, boasting a workforce of approximately 40,000 individuals. Established in December 2017, it emerged from the consolidation of multiple smaller regional health authorities. Committed to providing a comprehensive range of health services, it offers primary and secondary care, home and community care, mental health services, population and preventative health initiatives, as well as addiction services.

The Challenge

Following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the facility faced a significant surge in patients seeking vaccinations. However, lacking a preexisting system capable of managing website or telephone appointments at the required scale, the facility urgently needed a web-based solution. This solution needed to swiftly facilitate appointment scheduling for vaccinations while adhering to specific regulations regarding patient age and vaccine type.

The Solution

To streamline appointment scheduling across its numerous clinics, Q-nomy's partner ACF Technologies successfully implemented a web-based appointment booking software powered by Q-Flow. This innovative solution allows patients to conveniently self-schedule appointments while ensuring compliance with health regulations, particularly regarding age requirements for COVID-19 vaccination. The system intelligently prevents the scheduling of multiple appointments for a single patient, promoting fair access to healthcare resources.Moreover, the solution's versatility extends beyond COVID-19 vaccination appointments, easily adapting to other types of appointments such as flu vaccines and COVID-19 testing. This provides a comprehensive and efficient management tool for a wide range of healthcare services.

The deployed solution includes:

• Over 600,000 COVID-19 vaccination appointments booked within the initial three months using Q-Flow.
