Schedule an appointment with a doctor in one click
Novant Health has launched a convenient solution for new patients to schedule an appointment with the click of a button. Previously limited to calling doctor’s offices during business hours, new patients seeking an appointment can now view in real-time a nearby doctor’s availability and schedule their appointment from a computer at any time night or day.
Using this technology, patients can now see the schedules of approximately 450 physicians across the Novant Health network specializing in family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics, and place an appointment directly on a doctor’s schedule.
“Novant Health offers many conveniences to our patients to be able to manage their health on their own time,” said Carl Armato, president and CEO of Novant Health. “This is just one of the many ways we are personalizing healthcare to fit their needs and their busy schedules. We want to partner with our patients to make their healthcare experience just as connected, clear and hassle-free as all the other modern conveniences in our lives.”
Through MyNovant.org, new patients may now find Novant Health primary care providers and make an appointment directly on the doctor’s schedule when and where they need it. The online tool, allowing you to search by location, doctor’s name or specialty gives you the ability to find the best physician for you and your family.
“Open physician scheduling can be compared to making an online dinner reservation at a restaurant,” said R. Henry Capps, Jr., M.D., co-chief medical information officer for the Novant Health medical group. “When you make a dinner reservation online, you want to choose your restaurant and a time that is most convenient for you to dine. We want to emulate that experience for healthcare. Our lives are busy, and this is just one more step towards making healthcare a little bit more convenient and in real time.”
Once a part of the Novant Health system, patients will benefit from a variety of recently added innovative and trendsetting features within their electronic health record (EHR) and MyChart, a feature that allows patients to access their medical record online. With MyChart, established patients are able to email their care team, view their health information, request prescription refills, participate in e- and video visits, and directly schedule appointments with their providers anytime, anywhere.
