DrDoctor and PowerHealth Partnership Leads the Way to Improved Patient Experience

20 February 2019

LONDON, United Kingdom and ADELAIDE, Australia – The partnership between London based health systems developer DrDoctor, and Australian developer of market-leading health software, PowerHealth, promises to deliver an improved
end-to-end experience for NHS patients.

DrDoctor and PowerHealth have partnered to deliver an end-to-end outpatient management solution that supports patients and hospital
staff in the drive towards a digital NHS. The partnership has been formed to improve patient experience, offering a frictionless transition between prior, on-the-day and follow-up engagement.

The integration of scheduling and digital wayfinding technologies delivers a solution that allows patients to schedule, view and change outpatient appointments themselves through an online portal, find their way to hospital and navigate their way around the facility using defined location directional messaging and way-finding information. 

Founder of DrDoctor, Tom Whicher explained, “There’s a real complimentary fit between our two solutions, one that provides the ability for patients to seamlessly transition from home to hospital and make the whole journey flow a lot smoother."

Patrick Power, Managing Director of PowerHealth added, “The PowerHealth-DrDoctor synergy is clear. We are both focused on delivering healthcare solutions that remove unnecessary administration and allow better patient to clinical interaction.”

With a global emphasis on cost-effective, patient-centred innovation in modern healthcare, the opportunity exists for technology providers to create new tools that help to manage consumers’ behaviour and empower patients to improve their own actions.

Patrick Power said, “This is great example of how technology has no boundaries and how companies from across the globe can work together to deliver the most radical patient-facing solutions. This partnership will provide a cost-effective way for hospitals to reduce risks and improve efficiencies, as well as providing a seamless experience for patients.”
