How Austin Health streamlines claiming


Queue Manager has helped Austin Health to reduce the amount of administration they have when checking in up to 1,200 patients daily. This in turn has decreased patient wait times and allowed Austin Health to maximise their utilisation of appointments. In this video we talk with Kim O’Sullivan, Director of Patient Flow at Austin Health.

KEY BENEFITS

Hospitals that choose Queue Manager to manage outpatient clinic flow can benefit from:

Less paperwork, more patient care

Self check-in, data validation and patient tracking frees up time to enable your staff to focus on what really matters—delivering quality care. Fewer manual processes and paperwork also improves clinical efficiency.

Enhanced patient satisfaction

Full visibility of patient status and progress helps minimise clinic congestion to prevent lengthy wait times, failure to attends and did-not-waits.
