Lumeon’s clients include some of the largest and most innovative hospitals, IDNs, health systems and specialist care providers, managing over 11 million patients between them.
Many of our clients started small, with pathways that address something as simple as automated appointment reminders, and subsequently expanded into broader areas such as chronic condition management.
Below are just some of our client success stories. If you’d like to hear more, please contact us.
“Lumeon’s vision fits and aligns with our goals. The platform gives us the opportunity to use technology to improve the patient experience and increase efficiency in our operations.”

Improving pre-operative capacity
CLIENT: A world-renowned IDN, based in the US
BACKGROUND: The IDN wanted to increase the volume of patients that they were able to manage through their ‘in-house’ pre-operative assessment and ensure protocols were applied consistently.
The pre-operative pathway created automatically triages patients, while an ordering algorithm suggests which tests, if any are suitable, presenting these for nurse review.
Over half of patients were able to be ‘fast tracked’ and autonomously managed by the platform, significantly reducing nurse workload and meaning patients don’t have to travel in for as many appointments. Meanwhile high-risk patients are closely assessed and monitored with regular phonecalls and in-person visits.
The pathway provides a real-time view of the pre-operative process, tasking care teams and automating activities such as booking tests. It also continuously engages patients, keeping them on track with reminders and information about preparing for surgery.
Implementing virtual check-in and reducing no-shows for Keck Medicine of USC
CLIENT: Keck Medicine of USC
Re-opening after the Covid-19 peak, the medical center realized it quickly needed a solution to keep patients out of waiting room areas where the virus could spread. Lumeon’s text-based virtual check-in was deployed in just a few weeks, allowing patients to text READY to a specific number and wait in their car before being brought into the building.
Keck Medicine of USC also benefits from Lumeon’s automated appointment reminder solution, which enables them to send messages in multiple languages.
The solution significantly reduced their no-show rate compared to their legacy vendor, while eliminating staff time spent manually uploading CSV files. All Lumeon solutions fully integrate with Keck Medicine of USC’s Cerner EHR.
Reducing discharge delays for a leading NHS maternity ward
CLIENT: Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust
BACKGROUND: Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust has one of the largest maternity centers in the UK. They were looking for a way to improve the patient discharge experience, having found that care coordination issues were prolonging the time taken to discharge new mothers and babies.
Lumeon pathway experts worked closely with clinicians at the trust to create a digitized version of their discharge pathway which coordinates the optimum sequence of tasks for mother and baby, displaying progress across key milestones.
Manual coordination of tasks has been replaced with a real-time view displayed on large screens, devices and desktop computers. The pathway enables multidisciplinary teams to easily share information and updates, while traffic light indicators and automated timers help care teams quickly prioritize patients.
Transforming patient access and improving virtual diabetes management
CLIENT: A large public health system
BACKGROUND: Lumeon was initially approached to see if we could streamline appointment reminder processes. Since then the client has expanded use of the platform to public outreach campaigns, recall, RX notifications and insulin monitoring.
Lumeon’s appointment reminder solution has enabled the client to consolidate their appointment reminder processes, standardizing outreach using interactive voice response (IVR) or SMS. Staff can use our self-service workflow builder to easily create and edit campaigns and the system integrates seamlessly with their EHR.
Lumeon’s pharmacy refill solution will enable patients to receive an SMS, email or IVR notifying them when medications are due to collect, while an automated insulin monitoring pathway will allow diabetics to text in their daily insulin taken and blood glucose levels after meals. Results that need review are sent to specialist teams, enabling remote intervention without the need for an appointment.
No-shows reduced from 20% to 15%
Improved patient compliance and satisfaction
Reduced administrative workload
Driving reduction in no-shows through our flexible appointment reminder solution
CLIENT: A leading west-coast US private teaching hospital
BACKGROUND: The client was looking for in-house control over their appointment reminder software as well as a solution that would enable more innovative digital patient interaction in the longer-term.
Lumeon’s appointment reminder solution provides multi-channel, multilingual automated appointment reminders. It has enabled the client to improve the way they create, and update appointment reminder workflows, with a user-friendly console and complete self-service capabilities.
Bi-directional EHR integration means that if patients reply to automated reminders wanting to cancel appointments, the system has the capability to hold up to four alternative slots in the EHR which the patient can then select from. It’s also easy to override or edit sequences as well as creating IVR, SMS or email workflow for public health campaigns.
The client now built a central ‘library’ of appointment reminder and campaign pathways which they have full control over.
Improving uptake of health assessments and enhancing member experience
CLIENT: Europe’s largest independent provider of wellness services
BACKGROUND: The company’s wellness division approached Lumeon to digitize their health assessment process in order to enhance patient access and reduce unwarranted variation.
Lumeon experts created standardized processes that were turned into digital care pathways leveraging automation to reduce manual tasks. The patient experience was completely revamped with the addition of self-service online appointment booking, automated recall and appointment reminders, electronic health questionnaires and downloadable personalized health assessment summaries.
Meanwhile, clinical time has been saved with upfront patient data capture and automated generation of patient summary documents.
The provider was able to further differentiate their member experience using a lifestyle coaching pathway. Automated questionnaires and coaching materials are sent to patients to track with personal goals, with information fed back to a dedicated lifestyle coach.
Facilitating optometrist-led triage and standardized recall in glaucoma pathways
CLIENT: A leading provider of NHS-funded ophthalmology services
BACKGROUND: Lumeon developed a digital screening and recall pathway to support this innovative provider who use remote vans to offer mobile glaucoma screening services to the UK’s NHS (National Health Service). The pathway enables them to provide an accessible glaucoma assessment service with shorter appointment times, results and waiting lists than could otherwise be achieved.
Pathways streamline the process by notifying care teams of new referrals, collating data from patients in advance of appointments (using e-forms or call lists) and coordinating optometrist diaries.
Once optometrists have completed the scan and made their assessment, Lumeon notifies off-site ophthalmologists and enables them to quickly approve the optometrist’s decisions. The most at-risk patients are then automatically referred for priority treatment, while medium and low-risk patients are assigned to monitoring pathways with automated recall.
20% cost saving per patient
4 hours of separate appointments consolidated to 1 hour
88% time saving for ophthalmologists
Automating pre- and post-surgical workflows for Europe’s largest independent provider of imaging services
CLIENT: Alliance Medical
BACKGROUND: Lumeon collaborated with Alliance Medical to create automated, standardized workflows for PET-CT, MRI and XRay, that were variable by payor.
Alliance Medical transitioned from multiple processes and uncoordinated RIS-PACS environments generating variable costs across their network, to a standardized series of pathways managed by a ‘master’ software.
These pathways automatically update required tasks, rulesets, timers and content based on patient risk and client requirements. They include automated referral screening, automated patient communications and rules-based task allocation for reporting Radiologists, as well as automated scan formatting and distribution.
They have enabled Alliance Medical to deliver scans more rapidly, and at lower cost and the company is now the largest supplier of PET-CT services to the UK’s National Health Service.
