Skip the Waiting Room is an innovative new mobile app, developed by software developer Mark Richardson of Prince Edward Island in Canada, that is designed to quite literally enable you to skip the waiting room when you go to a walk-in clinic to see a doctor.
The app gives patients the ability to book doctor appointments, and is also capable of sending text messages and automated phone calls to users to let them know when they should start heading to the clinic. This elegant but brilliant function ensures that patients can avoid the long, boring and frustrated waits that can happen when doctor appointments get unexpectedly backed up without warning.
While Canada's health care setup is the envy of much of the world, wait times remain a persistent problem. The Skip the Waiting Room ensures that patients can maximize their time and only head to the clinic when it's their time to do so.
