A doctor’s time is precious. At WaitingRoom, we understand this, but we also believe there is unseen incentive in equally valuing the patient’s time. Our goal is to take the “wait” out of the waiting room, thereby maximizing the patient’s spent time and minimizing the doctor’s effort in treating the patient. As co-founders, one a doctor and the other a medical student, we were in a unique position to understand both aspects of this complex and longstanding issue. What began as an idea to solve the issue of excessive waiting times progressed into additional features that we quickly realized were not being offered on a consistent basis. This led us to add an automatic patient reminder notification before scheduled appointments. With these initial features and more to be added, we have come to brand ourselves as a patient concierge that we hope will revolutionize how doctors and patients communicate.
