Direct Patient-Doctor Communication

Streamline after-hours communication by allowing patients and caregivers to connect with care teams via one dedicated phone number. Callers can directly reach on-call physicians on a real-time phone call. Through the live call, callers can immediately communicate their medical needs to the appropriate specialist.

Callers can also leave a callback number and/or voicemail that gets “paged” to the on-call care team. That way, all care team members become aware of the caller’s urgent issues.

Direct communication enhances physician accessibility, patient care delivery and patient experience.

How It Works: Direct Communication


Healthcare Live Call Routing Workflow

When patients need to connect with a physician on a live call, OnPage automates the process and includes escalation paths.

The process begins when a patient dials the care team’s dedicated line and is prompted to select a phone option to connect with an on-call physician on a live call. If the patient’s call is picked up, an on-call physician connects with the patient on a real-time call and tends to his health-related issues.

If the patient’s call is not answered by an on-call physician, the call is directed within an escalation group, consisting of care team members. In the unlikely case that all on-call physicians do not answer, the patient is then prompted to leave a voicemail with a callback number. The voicemail is escalated within the on-call team until addressed and responded to. The process concludes with the generation of detailed OnPage reports, audit trails and status updates.
