Is Your Healthcare Organisation Ready for the Changes in the UK?
The UK is getting ready to make changes this month, with the Prime Minister working to make Brexit happen on the 31st October.
Public service announcements are being broadcasted with tailored messages for different industries and how they can prepare. In addition, a wealth of information has been published on the Government website. For those operating health and social care services, this contains details on:
- Procedures for UK Paediatric Investigation Plan (PIPs) in a no-deal Brexit situation.
- Providing services including those of a qualified professional after Brexit.
- Quality and safety of human blood and blood products if there’s a no-deal Brexit.
- Quality and safety of human organs, tissue and cells if there’s a no-deal Brexit.
There is also a large amount of published articles regarding medical technology, pharmaceuticals and clinical trials.
It’s Not Just the Brits Preparing
Organisations operating outside the UK have been making changes. Google is a prime example of this as they have updated their terms and policies for their Ads users, in preparation for if the UK leaves the EU and incorporates an amended version of the GDPR into UK laws.
Data security within the healthcare industry is vital, especially as all eyes were on the NHS in 2018 when a massive breach occurred affecting 150,000 patients’ data. Therefore any changes your organisation makes needs to be considered carefully.
If you’re already using live chat software or are considering implementing the instant communication channel, there are many solutions available on the market. However the majority are provided by organisations outside of the UK. There is no guarantee whether they are keeping up to date with the possible changes to UK laws or will be proactive in actioning them.
As the UK’s premier live chat software provider our data and operations are based within the UK, fully compliant with current data protection regulations. Our security officers are regularly keeping up with updates regarding Brexit. These will be made affective instantly within our business as required with no impact to users of our solution.
Switching Live Chat Provider
Moving from your current web chat software provider to us couldn’t be simpler. We supply a free 21 day no obligation trial, which allows you full access to configure your account and to become familiar with the system’s functionality.
Changing your live chat provider gives you an ideal opportunity to identify which users are still active and need transferring to your new solution, helping to strengthen your live chat security. When creating a new user there is the option to send a system email that contains their log in details and a link to download/access the web chat software. For a high volume of users, speak with our account managers to discuss our configuration settings.
Another aspect your organisation may want import is your designs. If you have already customised your current chat system to represent your website branding, it is easy to upload your chat button and logo into the Click4Assistance solution and replicate your corporate colours on any of the forms. You can also access the HTML/CSS for more advanced customisation.
The benefit of using live chat previously is that your organisation will already be able to access the questions which are commonly asked. The responses to these can be entered within the Click4Assistance solution as predefined replies. This allows advisors to access a library of answers during a conversation and edit them before sending to the visitor, saving them time whilst sending an accurate response.
