Business Situation

KFMMC used a completely manual process to manage their patients' visit. Patients would check for an appointment at the reception desk, then head to the nursery station for a quick checkup and wait for their turn, until the nurse calls the patient forward by name to go the doctor’s clinic.

Another challenge was to track the patients' files. In a manually handled process, an employee has to search through piles of files in the filing department in order to find out whether the patient has a file or not and to locate the file, which is wasteful to the employee's time and effort.

KFMMC also had no proper method to manage the male and female sections separately. All these problems and challenges made KFMMC look for a solution that will help them to create a convenient patient journey with smooth patient and minimal service time, while reducing the workload on the KFMMC's staff and optimizing the hospital’s overall performance.

The Solution

In order to enhance operations and create an exceptional patient experience, KFMMC implemented Patient Visit Management solution from SEDCO, a leading global provider of patient journey management solutions. 

The system allows for patient identification. Thus, KFMMC can easily identify whether the patient already has a file or not once he/she obtains a ticket in the queue. The system also automates the various processes in KFMMC. When the patient gets a ticket from the ticketing kiosk, the system instantly notifies the filing department to send the patient’s file to the nursery station for a primary checkup.

Each patient will have a unique queue number. When it’s the patient’s turn, the system automatically announces his/her queue number. Main LED screens are fixed in the waiting room in order to direct the patients to the proper clinic once they are called forward by the doctor to receive the service. Tailored and customized to meet KFMMC's specific needs, the installed solution helped greatly in relieving the stress off its staff and allowed them focus more on serving the patients.
