What is Get-in-Line?
Organizations can enable Get-in-Line to provide their patients with faster access to medical care. Get-in-Line uses a Wait List workflow queue, allowing organizations to set a specific number of available appointment slots at their clinic or other locations.
Patients can schedule same-day appointments without the need to call or wait for an office to open. After a patient books an appointment, they will receive a notification that confirms their appointment and another one when the clinic is ready to check them in.
How it Works
Patient & Provider Experience
The patient visits the organization's consumer landing page and selects the desired specialty and visit type. They can narrow their search by location and then click Search. Next, they can click Get-in-Line to fill out an appointment request.
Time Bound Patient Scheduling
The patient visits the organization's consumer landing page and selects the desired specialty and visit type. They can narrow their search by location and then click Search. Next, they can click an available time slot to fill out an appointment request.
Booking an Appointment
On the following page, the patient fills in the required personal information: first name, last name, address, phone number, and email address, as well as the reason for their visit. They can also provide optional information about their insurance carrier, plan, group number, and policy number if they have it. Once they complete the appointment details, they can click BOOK APPOINTMENT to confirm.
Wait List Confirmation
Once they book their appointment, the patient receives an email and SMS notification letting them know, "You're in line", to confirm they are on the clinic's wait list. They receive another notification to head to the clinic once they are third in line (or immediately if they’re one of the only three waiting in the queue). At the clinic, they will be seen by the healthcare provider according to their position in the wait list.
