Time is Money, also in Patient Administration

Digital registration via the app has been productive since June 2020.

Since May 2023, heyPatient has introduced web registration to the market for easy integration into the company's website, with direct data delivery to the ERP.

Kantonsspital Baden as well as Merian Iselin Klinik use web registration and are pleased that they have already benefited from 2,794 automated registrations with pre-checked, complete, and accurate master data delivered directly into their ERP system.

Luka Vranjes, CTO of heyPatient, says: "With a minimum saving of 5 minutes per web-registration, this new functionality already brought a relief to patient administration by 233 hours. We're excited to see how the useage increases month by month."

*This only considers 1 case per patient, so it's a very conservative estimate. Various studies project a higher potential for savings, such as this study by McKinsey and ETH Zurich. As part of the Innosuisse SHIFT Projektes, we're developing a scientifically grounded toolkit with a simple calculation of the benefits of digital solutions like heyPatient.
