A majority of today’s consumers believe that technology leads to better healthcare. Specifically:

  • 58% believe that technology leads to better care[1] and
  • 77% think that the ability to book, change or cancel appointments online is important.[2]

The market’s response to such consumer preference for technology-based health management solutions: More than 165,000 health-related apps, a booming wearables market, and rapid adoption of social marketing.

While each of these represents a step in the right direction, there’s a problem: None of them improve access to healthcare.

Did you know that, today, only 2.4% of healthcare appointments can be self-scheduled? This means 98% of patients can’t access care when and how they want to.[3]

Research shows that prospective patients are online – shopping for care on your website. Are you giving them what they want? An easy-to-use, cloud-based, online self-scheduling tool is your answer. It’s like putting a big “buy” button on every service line you offer – giving prospective patients 24/7 access to care and the satisfaction that comes with scheduling care when and how they want to.

The team behind InQuicker pioneered online self-scheduling and our proven approach delivers. Want to learn more? We hope so, because, be the best at being accessible and you will win.
