Organizing patient queues in a way that each patient is treated justly is a challenge in itself! WhatsApp Queuing is the go-to solution for managing patient queues effectively. Wavetec’s WhatsApp queuing enables the service providers to manage long patient lines and cut patient wait times.

Through this solution, the patient can also be notified before their turn, ensuring that they are ready for their turn. This helps minimize unnecessary delays.

How Does it Work?

The patient scans a QR code and they are redirected to the medical institution’s WhatsApp chat.

The patients select the service they want to avail and a virtual ticket is generated for them.

Now, the patients can also check the time left for their turn. Accordingly, they can either choose to wait within the premises or run some errands.

Patients don’t have to worry about missing their appointment slot, because they receive reminders for their turn.

When their turn arrives, the patient receives a notification, requesting them to proceed to avail the required service.

This solution enables the service providers to ensure that the experience of the customers is not compromised due to long waiting lines or mismanagement.

This eliminates all chances of confusion and miscommunication. Additionally, booking future appointments is much simpler due to the easily accessible data.

Otherwise, they can avail the services online through the integrated video call applications.

Lastly, after the appointment, the customers can also share their patient experience, empowering the healthcare centers with relevant data to improve their medical services.
