Tinton Falls, NJ (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
DocASAP, the online appointment scheduling service preferred by health care provider groups, announced today that it has signed an agreement with North Jersey based Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center (MHMC) to provide its doctors and patients free online appointment scheduling, ratings and reviews. The service, available online now will make it easier than ever for MHMC patients to access the care they need more quickly and better informed. For MHMC doctors, DocASAP offers an opportunity to reduce inefficiencies by filling open appointments while enhancing their online presence.
“This new technology service will give our customers the ability to manage aspects of their health care 24 hours a day,” said Lynn McVey, Acting CEO and President, MHMC. “We’re constantly evaluating and making technological investments to our facility that help us provide quality health care to our community.”
Studies show consumers want convenience, transparency and control as they start playing a more active role in managing their health choices and costs. Increasing wait times for doctor appointments is also a huge problem for consumers in the US. According to Intuit Health more than 70% of patients would like to book appointments online. This helps to explain the interest, satisfaction and repeat use of DocASAP by patients who have experienced the service. DocASAP expects a similar positive response from MHMC patients of the Hudson-Bergen New Jersey region.
Puneet Maheshwari, CEO and Founder of DocASAP, says, “MHMC is a premier medical center just a few miles from New York so we are delighted DocASAP was entrusted to make online appointment management available to its doctors and patients. This agreement highlights the fact that DocASAP’s strong alliances in the healthcare provider community continue to grow and deepen.”
