Walk in Clinics in PEI: Online Booking Update

Walk in Clinics in PEI: Online Booking Update

 The past few months have been very hectic here at Skip the Waiting Room.  We have our first install running (without offering online booking, we realize that is the exciting part, but it is coming), and things have been going well at the clinic that is using our system.

Skip the Waiting Room – Confirmation Text Message from a walk in clinic

 We just wanted to share the image you see above.  This is a text message that was sent out after we booked an online appointment.   Again to go over the basics, Skip the Waiting Room will be partnering with walk in clinic providers in your area and bringing their clinics online.  This means you are able to see the status and schedule of the clinics, and then actually book an appointment through our website (no app or login required).  

 We calculate when it is time for you to leave and send you an automated phone call or text message (what you see in the image above is a confirmation message).  This means you don’t have to stand in line to get an appointment, you don’t have to sit in a waiting room, you stay at home with your family, you stay at work, etc and you are only asked to leave for your appointment when it is appropriate.   

 So what have we been up to?  

We are putting the final touches on the system that reaches out to send you those automated phone calls and text messages, and then things like a customized google map where you can not only see all the clinic locations, but their schedule, and if they offer online booking.

 The other interesting item we will be deploying into walk in clinic waiting rooms is our Waiting Room Screen.  This will show you the progress of the clinic, it’s schedule, as well as explaining what we do here at Skip the Waiting room.

 You can see an image below which is an example of both the view of how the current clinic is progressing as well as the schedule for the week.
