Why Queuing is Critical in Healthcare
In today’s experience-driven society, people long for engaging, personalized attention. The healthcare market is no different, and it’s increasingly being driven by enhanced patient experiences. Patients are becoming more involved in their healthcare, and their attitude is shifting to that of a consumer.
Evolving in pace, then, is critical for healthcare organizations, and queueing solutions from NEMO-Q can aid in that evolution. While a multitude of factors go into a patient’s experience, wait time is often outsized.
