Solumed, a local healthcare practice management software company, has announced the API-based integration of RecoMed’s online booking platform and health marketplace offering into it’s new product, Solumed Pro.

Solumed Pro is a medical software solution designed specifically for medical, dental and allied healthcare professions. The solution enables a range of capabilities such as practice billing, patient management and clinical record capturing.

RecoMed is the largest and fastest growing health booking platform and marketplace in South Africa that allows patients to find and book appointments with healthcare providers. The platform has grown to become the leading industry solution, adopted by the likes of Clicks, Discovery, Healthbridge, Medicross and others.

The RecoMed and Solumed Pro offering places health practitioners and their practices online for patients to easily find and book appointments in real-time, 24/7. These appointments are integrated into the Solumed Pro calendar, enabling easy and straightforward workflow for the practice.

Practitioners will also be listed on RecoMed’s online and industry partner channels to gain additional exposure, and in turn increase patient visits by maximising their accessibility and visibility.

Following the successful completion of the integration pilot phase, the Solumed/RecoMed integration is now available to more than 1,000 medical, dental, radiology and allied healthcare practices throughout South Africa at the start of August 2018.

“The integration allows patients to make appointments at times when it is convenient for them, often when the practice is closed,” said Solumed Director, Saul Jankelow.

Second Line Support Consultant, Russell Milner, added that the synergy and efficiency of the new offering is revolutionary. “It is a lot simpler and less time consuming than booking over the phone. Doctors love the way RecoMed markets their practices across many platforms. It is real value for money since not only does it increase practice revenue, but it also makes everyone’s life easier.”

“Doctors can have access and manage the calendars from anywhere in the world at any time of the day or night. Meanwhile prospective patients can view the doctor’s profile as well as other people’s experiences at the practice. The fact that customers are presented with a picture of the doctor enhances their trust and makes them more comfortable when booking an appointment. I believe this is the best product on the market and I would recommend it to all doctors,” continued Milner.

According to RecoMed’s CEO and Founder, Sheraan Amod, Solumed and RecoMed are dedicated to forming long-term partnerships with health providers by delivering exceptional support and service that helps them grow. “The feedback from patients has been very positive and most now use this as their sole solution for booking a consultation. The system works, and I invite all healthcare practitioners to put us to the test.”
