Wait Times in Doctors’ Offices Have Increased 30% in Major U.S. Cities Since 2014.*
And will continue to do so.

Wait times in doctors’ offices are expected to increase as the number of annual office visits increases to approximately 565 million in 2025.

More people are entering the healthcare system:

  • The Affordable Care Act – 8 million additional patients with another 24 million by 2024
  • Aging Baby Boomer Population – 55 million+ over 65 by 2020
  • Millennial Women – 80 million with 64% of females citing healthcare as their number one concern++
  • Audience includes both patient and caregivers – i.e., new moms, aging caregivers

Consumers are visiting Point of Care venues:

  • Physician offices
  • Pharmacies
  • Hospitals

Practices are tasked with managing how to improve patient experiences as they continue to spend more time in doctors’ offices. Practice satisfaction and recommendations to others is at the forefront of challenges in the healthcare system. Sometimes long waits are unavoidable.  The front office patient experience is a critical time for both healthcare professionals and the patients they serve.
