FQHC Case Study

SOUTH OF MARKET HEALTH CENTER

Improved efficiency generated nearly $50,000 in additional revenue with Luma Health’s Total Patient Engagement Platform™

THE GOAL:

The FQHC wanted a more efficient and effective way to communicate with patients about everything from appointment scheduling to lab results.

Luma Health’s patient engagement platform has been such a benefit to both our clinic and to our patients. The Automated Waitlist has been especially helpful in getting our patients in sooner as we backfill empty appointment slots, not to mention we’ve kept revenue that could have been lost to cancellations. We’ve also improved efficiency and communication with Collaboration Hub. It’s given us a HIPAA-friendly way to communicate via text messaging with patients and our internal team.”

SOUTH OF MARKET HEALTH CENTER

THE PROBLEM: Communicating with patients and internal staff was inefficient 


South of Market Health Center—an FQHC in San Francisco — needed a better way to connect and communicate with patients. Manual phone calls required a significant amount of the staff’s time and often were ineffective—particularly when trying to reach patients quickly to fill a last-minute appointment cancellation.

THE SOLUTION: Adding two-way text messaging improved communication and patient care


South of Market Health Center adopted Luma Health’s patient engagement platform, which enables HIPAA-compliant two-way communication and chat to communicate more rapidly with patients and internal team members. Patient outreach, access to care, and filled cancellations improved.

THE RESULTS: Partnering with Luma Health, South of Market Health Center achieved:


  • 65% of text messages delivered received a patient response
  • Nearly $50,000 additional revenue from filled waitlist appts in just 10 months
  • 67% conversion rate for referred patients
