“Dr. Smith is experiencing significant delays today, expect the trip from the waiting room to the exam room to take a hour.” Wouldn’t it be nice to find this out BEFORE arriving at the doctor’s office?
In today’s world, time is more valuable than ever, and Jim Auron from the UW Medical Foundation is sick of waiting for his physician. He suggests creating a system similar to that used by the airlines to track commercial flights. Patients could be notified by text message, push notifications, or through a web site.
