Mobile Patient Check-in and Calling

The Intouch Mobile Appointment Manager app has been designed to provide hospital patients with more convenience when managing their appointments, including the ability to check in for a pre-booked appointment, and to be called to a specific clinic without entering the hospital, therefore improving social distancing measures.

For those patients who are already familiar with the self check-in process using kiosks, the process will be very similar to what they have previously experienced. For those patients who have not used check-in kiosks, the interface has been designed to be intuitive and user-friendly.

Mobile Check-in and Patient Calling

The Intouch Mobile Appointment Manager app enables patients to arrive themselves and be called to appointments from anywhere around the hospital. Patients are able to check-in when they are in close proximity to the hospital (such as the car park or an external waiting area) and avoid congested indoor waiting / reception areas, other patients and face-to-face contact with staff where possible. When staff are ready, patients can be called forward through the Mobile app.

Patients can download the app for their smartphone from the App Store or Google Play to arrive themselves for their appointments in complete confidentiality.
