Currently, waiting room at medical facilities are experiencing long wait times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently announced, DocClocker®, a pioneering app that enables medical facilities to provide patients with real-time wait time reporting, is preventing the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) nationwide by enabling patients to avoid long waits in medical waiting rooms. The DocClocker app was created and funded entirely by practicing medical physicians and on a mission to create transparency in the waiting room to enhance communication between medical providers and their patients.
“It is important that people are not sitting in sick waiting rooms during the coronavirus outbreak when there are delays in the office. DocClocker providers value their patients’ time and are engaged in technology efficiencies that mitigate long wait times,” said Dr. Eric Carter, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of DocClocker.
The DocClocker app easily allows for medical providers to deliver patients with waiting room wait times to increase patient satisfaction and positive reviews – allowing patients to stop for coffee on their way to an appointment or finish a work project, in case the office is running behind.
In addition, providers who use DocClocker receive an increase in new patient bookings, as they can be located and selected on the app by prospective, in-network patients. The app can also reduce front desk stress by allowing patients to manage appointments through the app and receive appointment reminders.
“As governments and communities around the globe are doing everything in their power to prevent the spread of coronavirus, it is our obligation as medical providers to do the same for the safety of our patients. By providing real-time wait times to your patients with DocClocker, you are demonstrating your commitment and true care for their wellbeing,” said Dr. Kevin Makati, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of DocClocker.
I personally checked out the app’s site and it was pretty simple to use once you sign up. FYI it’s not available in all cities so you must check the site to see if they service your area. DocClocker is available at the Apple Store and Google Play for free.
