Mobile Appointment Setting Gives Patients Faster Access to Medical Care
Now more then ever, consumers are searching online for healthcare information and want access to medical providers when it’s convenient for them, according to a recent Intuit Health survey. The report also found that 81% would like to schedule medical appointments online. In response to this growing trend, more medical providers are adopting the mobile and Web appointment setting capability of iTriage to connect with patients.
Mobile appointment setting through iTriage provides consumers with a convenient resource for scheduling everything from annual check-ups to post surgery follow-up to flu shots.
iTriage currently has a number of medical providers offering appointment setting capabilities, from physicians in a range of specialties like Roper St. Francis Healthcare Physicians in Charleston, SC, to urgent care centers like FastER in Morris Plains, NJ, and even retail clinics like Walgreens Take Care Clinics in Denver and Chicago.
“The mobile appointment setting feature provides people with the resources to better manage their health by offering them more control and convenience when accessing our urgent care services,” said Dr. Robert P. Schiermeyer of Doctors Express – Englewood, CO
Requesting and booking a medical appointment through iTriage is fast, secure and convenient, and eliminates the need to wait on the phone or call during office hours. From the medical provider page on iTriage, patients can enter a reason for the visit, choose an available date and time, and enter their contact information.
