Ever been to a walk-in clinic and had to wait hours before being seen? Even if your situation was not a true medical emergency, it can still be frustrating to sit in a waiting room for a long time when you’re not feeling well. With the Urgently Health app, you can keep track of your medical history, facilities near you, wait times, and paperwork all in one place, eliminating the need for long wait times in a time of medical crisis. Here are 5 tips on how you can shorten your wait time at the walk-in clinic.

1. Keep your medical information up to date in your profile on the Urgently Health app.

Your profile is set up to store all kinds of information, including your allergies to medication and other substances, medical conditions you have, and your insurance information. This will help your doctor better assess what type of treatment is available to you, which saves time leading up to your appointment.

2. Check the Urgently Health app for facilities near you and choose the one with the shortest wait time.

With Urgently, you can check the facilities in your area to see which ones are busier and which ones have more space for you. This can help you get seen much quicker, which can alleviate pain and frustration for both you and the provider.

3. Check to see which facilities are accepting walk-ins.

This will save you the hassle of driving all across town to see your doctor, only to find out that they don’t accept walk-ins. By checking this beforehand, you can avoid being stuck in traffic or showing up at a closed door.

4. Check to make sure your insurance is accepted.

What could be worse than waiting hours to be seen, only to find out that your insurance isn’t accepted at the walk-in clinic? Urgently Health allows you to check which insurances facilities accept on the app, so don’t miss this quick and easy way to avoid a wasted afternoon in the waiting room.

5. Fill in your walk-in paperwork before you go.

With Urgently Health, you can fill out your paperwork before arriving at the facility, which shaves off minutes in the waiting room and prevents some of the back and forth at the reception desk. 

In our fast-paced and technologically advanced society, no one should have to wait hours to be seen by a medical provider. Use the Urgently Health app to take the stress out of unplanned medical visits!
