"We know our patients are busy people and taking time for personal health can sometimes be challenging," said Dr. Alan Burgess, Medical Director for HealthONE Physician Care. "By partnering with ZocDoc, we are able to provide hassle-free online appointment booking wherever our patients live, work, or play. Patients can make a doctor's appointment after the office has closed and they don't have to worry about when the office can fit them in since they are able to see doctors' real-time availability and can simply click to book. Our doctors and patients are very pleased with ZocDoc after these first few weeks with the service."
Denver residents wait more than 15 days on average for medical appointments, according to a study by healthcare search and consulting firm Merritt Hawkins. ZocDoc's unique system shows doctors' availability in real-time, and makes open appointment times instantly accessible online. The system thus reduces wait times for patients and increases efficiency for medical providers. Forty percent of all appointments scheduled by ZocDoc users occur within one day, and 60 percent of ZocDoc appointments take place within three days.
"We are excited to bring ZocDoc to Denver, helping patients in the area receive the fast access to medical care that they need and deserve," said Cyrus Massoumi, founder & CEO of ZocDoc. "The area's leading physicians, including those affiliated with HealthONE, have embraced ZocDoc to provide better service to both new and existing patients."
The Denver region is the 19th area to welcome ZocDoc. The service currently offers medical appointments in major metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami-Palm Beach, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington, DC.
