We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with NextPatient. NextPatient’s free tools integrate with drchrono through the API and allow doctors to show their wait times and open appointments right on the front page of their websites. This is perfect for Urgent Care Clinics. The team is willing to put the times right on your website for free!
This is an example of what they can put on your site:
NextPatient was recently in this great article in KQED talking with a physician of an Urgent Care clinic that uses drchrono.

‘The last thing you want to do is feel crummy in a waiting room with other people. NextPatient allows you to feel crummy at home.’Caesar Djavaherian, Direct Urgent Care”
For Walk-in Urgent Care:
What do patients dread most about walk-in urgent care? The waiting room. Patients often show up without knowing how long the wait will be, and might spend hours sitting there just to hold their spot in line.
NextPatient has a better way. Instead of making patients sit in your waiting room, why not let them wait at home? It works like this:
Step 1: Using NextPatient’s software, your current wait time is posted on the front page of your website.
Step 2: Patients can claim a spot in line from any desktop or smartphone.
Step 3: The patient’s information is injected into drchrono, so you know they’re coming.
Step 4: If the actual wait is longer or shorter than expected, the front desk sends the patient a text message through NextPatient’s software.
The result: patients reclaim the time currently lost to waiting rooms, and the frustration over long waits largely disappears.
