An open letter to all healthcare providers:
We respect you and appreciate your hard work. During this difficult time, you all are heroes.
But with all due respect, there is something which we, as well as all patients, hate most – long waiting time.
We know the cause of the long waiting time is the healthcare system, not the providers.
But when we sit in the waiting room as the patient and see all other patients have the same hope as us that we don’t need to wait anymore, we completely fail to find the difference between the healthcare system notorious for long waiting times and healthcare providers famous for world-class treatment.
Anyway, to make the healthcare system more patient-focused, we seriously need to work on reducing waiting time.
And if we can’t reduce the wait time, we can at least offer comfort, convenience and flexibility with the way patients wait for their turn!

If this touches your soul, here is the solution.
If you still cannot figure it out, a virtual waiting room enables patients to virtually check in to the clinic and join the virtual waitlist from even outside of the clinic.
Why should every doctor have a virtual waiting room?
A virtual waiting room app is beneficial for both healthcare providers and patients.
How does a virtual waiting room for a doctor’s office work?
Well, you must know the basics of its backend processes to leverage it to its full potential.
So, here it is.
A virtual waiting room can be deployed in the form of a mobile app or web app. Both patients and doctors can access this mobile app. But both of them have different app modules with different app features.
Talking about features,
You can also build a web app. In the case of a web app, patients need to access your app or system using any web browser.
Talking specifically about its working, it generates the estimated wait time for each patient using its sophisticated algorithm.
If you integrate it with EMR/EHR, it by itself fetches all patient personal and demographic info along with patient intake forms from EMR/EHR and also adds appointment details to doctor’s EMR for seamless data management across systems.
How much does a virtual wait room in healthcare cost?
