Providers play a key role in launching online scheduling successfully and it’s essential to engage them proactively in these initiatives. To better understand provider perspectives on consumer self-scheduling and help healthcare leaders effectively garner their support, we surveyed 200 primary care providers (PCPs) and specialists for insights into both their perceived benefits and concerns with online scheduling.

  • 42% of interested providers identified new patient acquisition as the largest potential benefit to their practices
  • 1/3 of providers overall were concerned about scheduling template standardization and clinical appropriateness of self-scheduled patients
