Nice! Patients are handed a tablet pc to check in. Also the facility has an onsite lab which can run 64 bit scans and the results are available almost immediately. You can also sign up on your home computer as well. Be sure to watch the video at the link below. Nice to be able to play a little X-Box while you wait or send the kids over to play too! BD
What is Concierge Emergency Medicine? The concept of concierge medicine has become increasingly popular over the past ten years. Concierge practices offer a higher level of service including more customized patient care, more comfortable upscale waiting and treatment areas and in many cases limited or no wait times. Like concierge practices, Concierge Emergency Medicine emphasizes comfort, convenience, personalized care, and a superior level of service not possible in a hospital based emergency room. By combining concierge-style customer service with emergency-level care, Concierge Emergency Medicine offers patients the highest quality medical care in a comfortable, convenient, and friendly setting. Emergency Health Centre is currently the only emergency care facility in the nation to offer this revolutionary concept in emergency medicine.
"Each of our patients, when they arrive, will check in on a tablet PC. The PC is set up such that it stores their patient demographic information so they only have to fill it out once, the first time they come in," Goetze said,
All of those things can be found in the lobby of Emergency Heath Centre in Willowbrook.
