Transforming the Patient Experience: Foxo Launches Unified Clinical Communications with Built-in Patient Chat


Brisbane, Australia 19 July 2023 - Foxo, a leading provider of secure clinical communication and collaboration, is proud to announce the launch of its innovative patient-facing module, designed to enhance the patient journey through secure patient engagement. This module empowers patients to effortlessly interact with healthcare providers, request files and imaging, make or modify appointments, skip phone queues, and access vital clinical information, ultimately leading to an improved patient experience while alleviating the strain on administration teams and busy phone lines by presenting the ability to establish a versatile multi-channel call centre.


Coupled with the latest edition of Foxo's Microsoft Teams app, this release presents a unified communications strategy where patients can seamlessly connect with the Microsoft Teams environment without requiring a Microsoft account. Importantly, clinicians can maintain a level of separation from the busy flow of patient communications by remaining one-step removed from patient conversations until escalated.

Medscan, a prominent provider of medical imaging and radiology services in Sydney, NSW faced challenges with a high volume of inbound phone calls, interruptions to clinical workflows, and the need for a secure alternate communication channel. By implementing Patient Chat, Medscan has experienced immediate benefits, including improved service delivery, reduced call waiting times, and the ability to securely coordinate bookings and share images and files with patients.

"Foxo’s Patient Chat has brought a new level of innovation to our patient communication by offering our patients an easy-to-use and secure mechanism to make or change bookings, request information, and upload their referral.” 

Riley Chaffer, Chief Radiographer / Clinical Supervisor.
