When you join Hero we will provide you with a bespoke onboarding process. Within this, we will explain how to use the app and show you use cases for specific features. You can have as many support sessions as you need to get comfortable with Hero - some of our clients find it helpful to have a ‘review’ class after they have been on the system for a few months.
How do we do this? We provide a slick booking and payment process for patients. Our software automates clinical administration, keeping your business as efficient as possible.
Patients can book appointments via your practice website or via Hero’s appointment marketplace. Patients cannot book an appointment without paying upfront, reducing the time-consuming task of chasing late payments. When an appointment is booked, both the administrator and the patient will receive a confirmation email.
Our bespoke appointment marketplace guides patients to your practice, encouraging them to book an appointment with you. In the marketplace, patients can explore an interactive map of clinics, or use our filtered search engine to find the healthcare service they need.
We believe that the healthcare sector is lagging behind other booking industries, and we are driven to be the solution to this problem.
