Toronto's HealthAware.ca announced the expansion of its service today with the launch of its free online appointment-booking feature for diagnostic imaging clinics in the Greater Toronto Area and specific regions of Ontario.
“With HealthAware’s online appointment-booking application patients no longer have to wait several weeks or longer to get an appointment with a diagnostic imaging clinic in their area,” said Nikolai Bratkovski, HealthAware CEO and Co-Founder. “Patients can now book and verify their appointment – instantly online – while taking advantage of last minute openings.”
HealthAware wants to brings efficiency and transparency to the Canadian health care system, resulting in quicker apoointment times for patients.
As of today, diagnostic imaging clinics are offering more than 5,000 appointments in the Greater Toronto Area and regions of Ontario through HealthAware. Additional doctors, specialties (dental clinics, chiropractors, RMT, physiotherapy) and appointment times and regions throughout Ontario will be added in the coming months.
To use the service, patients visit the HealthAware website to enter their location, and the type of medical specialty they wish to visit. HealthAware then shows healthcare provider’s schedules in real-time, along with credentials and patient reviews, in order to help patients choose a doctor or clinic that best fits their needs. Patients simply select a time slot and complete a brief checkout process to book an appointment. HealthAware then sends email and phone call reminders to help patients remember to attend their appointments.
