Patients are happier in their living room than in your waiting room.
Allow low-acuity patients to hold their spot in line online for their emergency room or urgent care visit using Check-in Express, a cloud-based tool that seamlessly integrates into your health system’s website.
How it works
Hold a spot in line
Patients select a preferred time and location for their visit to the ER or urgent care through your health system’s website.
Avoid the waiting room
Patients wait from the comfort of home and show up at their designated arrival time.
Have a better experience
Patients feel empowered and experience less anxiety associated with sitting in a crowded waiting room.
