10 online scheduling stats healthcare practices should know

Some practices hesitate to offer online appointment booking, but online scheduling is what patients want — and it offers a number of other benefits.

Are you undecided as to whether you should offer online appointment booking at your healthcare practice?

Many practices hesitate to add online scheduling to their websites or third-party sites because they fear it could be a headache for their staff. On the contrary, online appointment booking reduces administrative work because it lessens the amount of time staff must spend talking to patients over the phone.

Online scheduling has other benefits for your practice, too. It helps attract new patients, and it fills empty appointment slots. Most importantly, online appointment booking is what patients want.
