Platform Messaging Solutions for Hospitals & Healthcare Organisations

Crisis & Incident Management

During critical events, it’s important to get your message across and communicate with your staff in a timely manner. StarHub Enterprise Messaging allows you to send workers safety check messages to validate if a worker is safe and can track responses and escalates if no responses received based on duration rules.

Patient Alerting

Engage your patients at scale in a cost-effective manner. Create unique two-way mobile interactions with your patients in real time. Integrate our platform with your existing database to create A2P patient reminders & notifications to boost engagement and appointment follow through.

Internal Notifications

Leverage the power of SMS to broadcast your messages to your internal staff. Create system-generated automated notifications or one-off messages to all of your staff. Create lists and take advantage of advanced reporting to track open and read rates.

Emergency Response Management

Platform for Business Continuity Planning

In advance, you will create your templates and group lists and your message templates (for example, different templates and lists for your various hospital staff groups, doctor groups, specialists, and first responders, etc.). Or, import group lists and contacts from existing hospital IT systems.

SMS for Urgent Response & Worker Safety

Trigger alerts from any web browser, whether you are on or off hospital premises at any time of the day or night. In fact, broadcasts can even be initiated using SMS from your mobile device. The system is pre-configured so you can quickly deploy time-sensitive information to the right people from wherever you are.

Rapidly Adapt to Changing Circumstances

Add customised content to broadcast messages, and use the StarHub Enterprise Messaging platform to combine group lists, request delivery confirmations and view real-time reporting during an event. Send ad hoc notifications anytime, or schedule automatic delivery of pre-written or pre-recorded broadcast messages.

Use SMS for Emergencies and Incident Management

StarHub Enterprise Message can provide a rapid broadcast notification system and 2-way SMS throughout the hospital. SEM enables ongoing communication during and after an incident, and includes an online broadcast notification portal to rapidly send time-sensitive information via SMS to pre-configured teams of hospital or healthcare workers.

Featured Use Case

Use SMS to verify worker staff safety & status, and the SEM StaffSafe application can track responses and automatically escalate if no response is received based on duration rules you establish.

Send Automated Appointment Reminders
Reduce patient failure-to-attend rates using SMS

Send SMS Reminders and Reduce Missed Appointments

Reduce Appointment Queues and Wait Lists

Manage queues and reduce long wait lists and by using SMS to automate status updates and re-confirm appointments at regular time intervals. Patients can interact with your systems via SMS to confirm or reschedule appointments.

Use SMS for Appointment Management

Reduce failure-to-attend rates by allowing patients to cancel, reschedule, or provide additional info right from their mobile devices. Their responses are captured and automatically processed and updated in your scheduling systems.

Integrate SMS Into Hospital Scheduling Systems

StarHub Enterprise Messaging integrates with most hospital scheduling, calendar and contact database systems to extend your scheduling capabilities to include SMS as a tool for appointment management.

Use SMS for Patient & Staff Communications

Use SEM to handle appointment changes and send automated appointment reminders to patients to improve failure-to-attend rates and shorten waiting list queues. SMS can remove the need for costly phone calls, and unlike email the SMS messages will reach your patients wherever they are with their mobile phones.

Featured Use Case

A trial study in Europe showed that missed appointments can be reduced by nearly 25% by using SMS to notify patients about the cost of each missed appointment.

Schedule Shifts Quickly & Efficiently
For on-call staff, nurses, caretakers, temporary workers, and contractors

Hospital Staffing and Process Automation

Send Staffing & Shift Offers via SMS

Create unlimited worker pools and configure availability parameters for each candidate. The platform automatically sends automated SMS text messages as shift offers to candidates. Simply specify the shift details and tell SEM which groups to ask.

Reduce Manual Staffing Processes

SEM will only ask candidates who are available. To accept a shift offer, candidates simply reply to their SMS with a ‘Y’. SEM awards the shift to the first to respond, and politely notifies everyone else that the shift is filled.

Use SMS for Reminders & Confirmations

SEM sends automatic reminders to ensure shift candidates don’t forget they’ve committed to the new shift, which helps ensure that the shift is successfully covered.

Staffing solution integration using SMS messaging APIs

Supplement your current staffing software with the SEM mobile platform to more easily share and fill open shifts for on-call staff, nurses, caretakers, temporary workers, and contractors with SMS messages.

Featured Use Case

Use smart text messaging to automate your staffing and shift fulfillment. Candidates can respond with the push of a button, and get reminder emails or texts before their shifts begin.
