In our fast-paced world there is nothing we love and appreciate more than convenience. The easier and quicker something is, the better!
Do you even remember what dial-up Internet is? Remember when you had to sit there for 2-3 minutes waiting for the Internet to connect? Or how about the first cell phones that didn’t have the capabilities to quick send a text to someone—you actually had to take the time to pick up the phone and call them. Well, those days are long gone and, let’s be honest, nowadays people would probably throw their computers out their window if they had to sit and wait for dial-up internet.
Even though it’s nice to sit and reminisce about the good old days, it’s also very easy to admit that the modern world we live in can unquestionably serve as convenient.
Nowadays we all have a million things to juggle and sometimes something as simple as picking up a phone to make an appointment can throw off our entire day—but thanks to your local health clinic in White Salmon, WA, appointment making has never been easier than it is with our convenient website!
Benefits to making online appointments
Efficiency. The ability to make appointments online not only benefits the patient looking to make the appointment, it also makes things easier on the staff. For the patient, you have the scheduler right at your fingertips and can make an appointment without having to disrupt what you’re doing in order to make a phone call. It saves both time and energy.
This form of scheduling is also easier on the staff. Online scheduling allows them to continuously take care of patients without having to stop and answer a phone or help a patient at a window, overall increasing the amount of productivity and efficiency, which makes both the staff and patients happy.
Avoid automated messaging systems. This one speaks for itself. There is nothing anyone hates more than those ridiculous automated message response systems that take what feels like days to get through to a live person. With online scheduling, those automated voice systems are completely avoided, ultimately leading to less frustration and time-wasted.
Automated confirmations and reminders. The busier we get, the easier it is to forget things here and there, but with the online scheduling there are confirmation emails or texts as well as automatic reminders. These messages make it nearly impossible to forget your appointment.
Convenience. Similar to the first point, it’s all about making things in our lives more convenient. Rather than having to take time out of your day or night to make an appointment before the clinic closes, you have 24-hour access to the online scheduler. So, you can wait until work is done, the kids are fed, bathed and in bed and you finally have a minute to breathe. With 24-hour online capabilities you can make your appointment when you are ready.
The ability to schedule appointments online has numerous benefits, as listed above, and although human contact is and forever will be a necessity, there is nothing wrong with finding ways to making your life a little bit easier, and that’s what our health clinic in White Salmon, WA aims to do.
