Together, we developed an intelligent ranking system that shows healthcare consumers open appointments on provider's schedules by their rating, the distance from the user and by price. The consumer is able to immediately choose and book an appointment with the provider that most matches their needs.
The marketplace is called CardinalHealth Sense. Sense for the consumer is an intelligent ranking engine for healthcare services, an appointment tracker with regular reminders, an automatic appointment check-in service based on proximity to the provider's office and a social engagement platform.
Sense for the provider is a robust, web-based scheduling platform and a notification-based appointment tracker. Once the consumer requests an appointment the provider can send reminders, check-in, check out and bill the consumer. Using a Priceline-like concept called Elapsing Discounts, providers can fill empty appointment slots at discounted prices that would otherwise go unused and unbilled.
