Calif. Hospitals Adopting New Online ED Appointment Tool
Eight hospitals in Southern California now offer InQuickER, a new online service that allows patients with nonemergency conditions to make an emergency department appointment at least two hours in advance. The service costs between $14.99 and $24.99. Patients who do not see a health worker within 15 minutes of their appointment time can receive a refund of their booking fee.
