Last month, Salesforce announced that they would be giving away Health Cloud for free with a Care Response trial to help Healthcare organizations rapidly adapt to COVID-19.
Here at Silverline, we quickly developed a solution to help out those in the healthcare industry being inundated with patient and employee questions. We mobilized a team of professionals and were immediately engaged in multiple conversations with customers. The first organization we were immediately asked to engage with was Truman Medical Centers in Kansas City, MO, to rapidly deploy the solution. Within three weeks of Salesforce’s announcement, Truman Medical Centers was actively leveraging the solution to manage inbound inquiries from patients and employees about COVID-19.
Meeting urgent medical center needs during a global pandemic
The solution, which was completely implemented in two weeks, required more than a few iterations to stay current. Protocol for managing potential Covid-19 patients was changing on a daily basis, so the Silverline team had to build and rebuild scripts four different times to accommodate changes in protocol and priorities. Once completed, the solution featured patient demographics, separate symptom assessment pathways for patients, and employees with multiple assessment dispositions and unique email follow-up messaging — all of which complied with CDC standards and mandates. Within one week, the Truman Medical Centers team logged nearly 275 calls.
Triage dashboard allows Healthcare Organizations to aggregate and report on data elements such as gender, age group, symptom severity, and disposition.
Truman Medical Centers is now equipped to handle the influx of patient calls and questions relating to Covid-19. They are pre-screening patients for Covid-19 before they arrive at the medical center. According to their website: “When calling with appointment reminders, staff ask patients if they are running a fever, experiencing a cough and experiencing shortness of breath. Patients also are being asked if they have had contact with anyone with Covid-19 or experiencing symptoms.”
Once assessments are completed, patients automatically receive an email summarizing their assessment along with follow-up instructions.
According to Matt Gretczko, our SVP & GM of Healthcare and Life Sciences, while he personally gives credit to the adaptability and agility of the Salesforce platform as one of the best technology partners, he also expressed a huge thank you to their Healthcare Practice team members that both personally and professionally have reacted to this pandemic so quickly. We also want to thank Truman Medical Centers for their confidence in our services to help them through this difficult time.
