COVINGTON, Ga. - The spring athletic season is just around the corner for high school and middle school student athletes in Georgia. That means it’s time for the spring sports physical and parents can eliminate the hassle of setting up an appointment by scheduling one online.
Online scheduling at piedmont.org, on the Piedmont Now app or by using MyChart often makes Piedmont QuickCare the quickest and most convenient way to establish an appointment. Many bookings – 45 percent according to Piedmont’s metrics – are scheduled outside of normal weekday office hours and on the weekends.
“Parents of student-athletes already have a calendar full of things to do,” said Matt Gove, chief consumer officer for Piedmont Healthcare. “We know that people prefer to book appointments online when it is convenient for them, and we’re happy to give them the opportunity.”
Since launching online scheduling, patients have responded by making nearly 13,000 online appointments per month, one of the largest totals for any healthcare system in the United States. By using the MyChart patient portal, the Piedmont Healthcare website (piedmont.org) or the Piedmont Now app on their mobile devices, patients can book appointments with Piedmont physicians and at all Piedmont Urgent Care and Piedmont QuickCare at Walgreens locations.
