RediClinic Adds Appointments, Online Scheduling for Convenient Care Clinics
Houston, Texas (August 11, 2016) — RediClinic, a leading operator of convenient care clinics, announced today that it has added online appointment scheduling to its comprehensive menu of options for customers seeking high-quality, convenient and affordable healthcare. Using RediClinic’s new online appointment system, customers can now schedule same- or next-day appointments from their desktop, tablet or mobile device, making access to RediClinic’s high-quality, affordable healthcare even easier than it has been.
Using RediClinic’s user-friendly online appointment system, customers can schedule appointments with a board-certified clinician who can treat more than 30 common medical conditions as well as provide a broad range of preventive services including screenings, medical tests, immunizations and basic physical exams. Unlike existing registration systems that place patients in a queue, RediClinic customers can make a same- or next-day appointment for a specific time at a chosen location. While walk-in appointments remain available, the option to schedule an appointment for a specific date, time and location provides added convenience for customers who can plan in advance and don’t want to wait.
“We’re excited to be launching our new online appointment system in time for back-to-school season so children and their parents won’t need to wait for physicals and immunizations,” said Web Golinkin, RediClinic CEO. “With just a few clicks, customers can make same- or next-day appointments at a time that works for them, a feature that advances our commitment to providing maximum convenience in high-quality healthcare.”
RediClinic’s online scheduling system not only saves time for customers, it also enables clinicians to spend more time on patient care by relieving them of the need to capture certain kinds of basic patient information. RediClinic’s online appointment system allows customers to enter their demographic data and answer a brief set of questions to determine the reason for their visit and set an appointment time. Patients then complete the registration process using a tablet once they arrive at the clinic.
“Patient response to our new online appointment system has been overwhelmingly positive since it was introduced in select locations in June,” said Danielle Barrera, RediClinic chief operating officer. “Expanding this service to all RediClinic locations is the next logical step in ensuring that RediClinic continues to deliver the superior service that has long been its hallmark.”
RediClinic currently operates 36 clinics inside H-E-B grocery stores in Houston, Austin and San Antonio, Texas, and 53 clinics inside select Rite Aid stores in the greater Philadelphia, Baltimore/Washington D.C. and Seattle areas. Since opening its first in-store clinic in 2005, RediClinic has successfully treated more than two million patients. RediClinic is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rite Aid Corporation.
