A private orthopaedic and sports injury clinic has introduced an app so that patients can arrange appointments on their iPhones.

Sports clinic launches appointments app

Fortius said the app enables patients to book new consultations, follow-ups and make payments

The iOS App was launched in March and the practice, the Fortius Clinic, intends to make the app available for Android users this summer.

A spokesperson for Fortius said patients can use the app to book new consultations, follow-ups, imaging appointments, upload and view documents, as well as pay outstanding balances and check payment history.

It was developed by Fortius and digital agency Nimbletank using open source software.

The spokesperson said the limited availability of apps that can integrate with legacy clinical information systems remains a major barrier to enabling patients to manage appointments using mobile devices.

Jim McAvoy, chief executive of Fortius, said: ‘This new app is a major step forward in our progress towards the provision of digital healthcare – it will improve the Fortius experience and deliver consistency in every touchpoint our patients have with our business.’
