In addition to Patient Self Service Check-in, the system was also required to allow patients provide contact information, update demographic details, and participate in structured surveys as designed and managed by St. James's Hospital staff. The solution was also required to dispense patient information, support way finding and provide feedback gathering initiatives to manage outpatient departments more efficiently.

Grapevine and Jayex worked closely with hospital administrative and medical staff to ensure a smooth introduction and better patient experience. Patients from all backgrounds and ages have adapted to the new system very quickly and appreciate they don’t have to queue at reception and have the opportunity to update their demographic information, such as mobile and home phone numbers.

With 1,020 beds, a staff of 3,500 and almost 350,000 patients treated each year as Inpatients, Outpatients, Daycare and emergency departments, St. James's is one the busiest acute hospitals in the country.
