GPW HEALTH CENTER
Earned $30K+ in additional revenue with Luma Health’s Automated Waitlist
David Calderon, COO
GPW HEALTH CENTER
GPW Health Center wanted to improve the patient experience by getting waitlisted patients the care they needed sooner and by making it more convenient for all patients to provide post-appointment feedback.
To get waitlisted patients essential care quickly, we needed to find a better way to notify them about available appointment slots. Luma Health helped us streamline our response to cancelled appointments and refill them more efficiently. We’ve seen the immediate impact of automation. Patients are happy to get care sooner, our staff spends less time managing the phones, and we’re retaining revenue that would have been lost to cancellations.”
THE PROBLEM: Manual patient outreach was time consuming and unproductive
For GPW Health Center — an FQHC in Virginia — manual patient outreach wasn’t efficient or effective. Tasks such as contacting waitlisted patients to refill appointment cancellations required front office staff to spend hours calling patients. Following up with patients to collect feedback post-appointment also demanded too much time and attention. Patient outreach needed an upgrade.
THE SOLUTION: Automated messaging improved communication throughout patient journey
GPW Health Center implemented a mobile-first approach to communication. By automating outreach with Luma Health’s HIPAA-compliant, two-way text messaging, GPW Health Center reached more patients, filled more cancelled appointments, successfully captured patient feedback and earned more positive reviews.
THE RESULTS: Partnering with Luma Health, GPW Health Center achieved:
- $30,000+ in additional revenue from appointments filled by Automated Waitlist in just 7 months
- 59% of messages delivered received a patient response
- Doubled Facebook reviews, average 4.3 star rating
