DrDoctor Follow-Up Management

By William Turner, DrDoctor Added 2nd Dec, 2019 Updated 13th Dec, 2019

DrDoctor is aiming to transform outpatient services by providing clinical teams with new ways of working, enabling them to have higher value interactions with their patients. Our Follow-up Management product helps hospitals to conduct only those follow-up appointments that are actually required, saving clinical teams and their patients precious time and money.



The NHS Long Term Plan commits to reducing face-to-face outpatient appointments by up to a third over the next five years. With the DrDoctor Follow-up Management product, clinicians can assess their patients digitally, and make an informed decision on whether a face-to-face appointment is needed. This delivers time and resource savings for the hospital and its staff, as well as significantly improving patient experience.

“A key feature of the product is the ability to directly inform the patient on what the outcome of their assessment is. Keeping patients informed is key in the successful outcome of any care journey. It reduces anxiety and makes patients feel in control of their care." – Maren Groven, Product Manager, DrDoctor.

After a beta launch with 3 major NHS trusts, The Christie, Nottingham University Hospitals and Aneurin Bevan Health Board, DrDoctor is making our game-changing Follow-up Management product available to the wider NHS.

We are working with NHS trusts to enable data to flow freely between DrDoctor and existing hospital systems. HL7 and FHIR standards are utilised to have all information about the patient available in one centralised system. With each deployment, the DrDoctor transformation team onboards the trust, maximising the results of their solutions.

DrDoctor supports online appointment booking, pre and post-operative assessments and patient engagement, as well as patient-led follow-up through the digital Patient Engagement platform.
