PHOENIX — Dignity Health has partnered with InQuicker to make hospital visits more convenient.
Four Dignity Health urgent cares and three hospital emergency rooms across the Valley allow patients to book an appointment time using the InQuicker function.
“If you need to be seen — either in our emergency room or in our urgent care — you can go online, [and] look for an appointment that works for you,” said Linda Hunt, senior vice president of operations, president and CEO of Dignity Health in Arizona. “You can wait at home and when your appointment time comes, you come to our facility and immediately you’re seen by a physician.”
Doctor visits can be stressful enough, and Hunt said they are trying to do their part to make a clinic or hospital visit as pleasant as possible.
“There are so many issues about waiting in a waiting room [and] in an emergency room that we have heard over the years, and we felt that it was important for us to do something like this for the people who use our services,” Hunt said.
In addition, patients who schedule visits at participating emergency rooms will receive a medical screening, regardless of their ability to pay.
