Engage Consult differs from alternative software solutions in that it provides a login choice for Registered Online Service Users right now and can also provide a single point of entry to all Patient Facing Services (PFS). Wiggly-Amps’ architecture gives Engage Consult the capability to extend PFS login services to authorised third party patient facing applications you may be using now or planning to use in the future. Approved by your CCG, Engage Consult will, over time, become one of numerous patient facing health management programs operational in a single environment behind a single point of entry. Not only is Engage Consult the best-of-breed e-consultation platform right now, it is the principal element of your future in the digital environment.

We offer Engage Consult – as well as associated Patient Facing Services – as “white label” services – we can integrate with and support your CCG’s current – and projected – digital offering.
