Ooma and NexHealth will jointly introduce customers to their combined solution, which includes a Patient Caller-ID Pop that lets office teams answer phone calls and see patient data such as date of previous visit, date of next scheduled visit, and even names of family members. All of the information will be displayed in the Ooma Office desktop app – increasing patient satisfaction by making phone interactions more efficient and personal.
By bringing two best-in-class solutions together, Ooma and NexHealth will provide integrated patient experience and phone system capabilities that maximize value for dental practices and other health-care providers.
This Patient Caller-ID Pop is embedded alongside the powerful call controls in Ooma Office, which go beyond what’s offered by competing solutions. Staff members can mute themselves, put calls on hold, start recording the conversation, transfer the call or seamlessly flip the call to another device such as a mobile phone. All staff members, not just administrators, can configure virtual receptionists and ring groups. Other advanced features include voicemail transcription, hotdesking and find me follow me.
The Patient Caller-ID Pop works best when used in tandem with the NexHealth patient experience platform. Whenever a patient books an appointment or completes a medical form via NexHealth, for example, that information syncs directly to the practice management system and the Patient Caller-ID Pop through the Synchronizer.
