Are you a healthcare provider looking to offer exceptional care and outstanding patient management? Luckily, the days when you had to be backed by a global systems integrator to be able to bring innovative technology to your business are long gone. With the help of the Salesforce AppExchange, even the smallest clinic can provide the highest standard of patient communication and service.
In this article, we are going to show you some of the best Salesforce Healthcare solutions that will transform, modernize and elevate patient experience, while helping your organisation improve pre-care to post-care quality.
Before we begin: Health Cloud
Salesforce offers an industry-specific Cloud for the healthcare industry called Salesforce Health Cloud. This native solution from Salesforce provides a patient and member relationship platform to deliver more personalized engagement. By combining clinical, financial, and patient-generated data, it streamlines administrative operations and equips medical teams with a holistic, 360° patient profile. Additionally, it boosts loyalty through a personalized experience across every touchpoint.
Although it is possible to deliver enhanced patient care using other Salesforce Clouds, the aforementioned industry-specific features make Health Cloud a leading choice for many organizations. Some of the listed solutions below require Health Cloud, while others don’t.
