New mobile app connects patients with cancelled and rescheduled doctor appointments

As a patient, or someone needing an appointment, one of the greatest frustrations is the wait for an opening, yet openings happen all the time when reservations and appointments are canceled last minute or businesses have no-shows. The problem is they are usually same-day, and coordinating people into newly opened-up appointment slots is not possible. We know getting appointments when you want can be challenging, and we believe we have found a way around this.

As a doctor or other business owner dependent on appointments or reservations, these no-shows and cancellations are cause for a large source of lost revenue. Schedgehog can fill these empty slots in your schedule, generating more revenue for your business.  For statistics on how much these cancelled and rescheduled appointments cost your practice click here

Schedgehog was created by doctors with the busy urbanite and suburbanite in mind. When an appointment opens up, the receptionist (or hostess) enters it into Schedgehogs database. If you are driving around and realize, “hey, I really need an appointment with the doctor” or “I’d love to go to that restaurant tonight but I probably can’t get a reservation this late”, you go to Schedgehog on your mobile, type in your zip code, specify the type of professional, the restaurant or other business you want to visit and voila! a list of all the appointments available same day within a certain radius of your location appears. One click and you are on the phone scheduling your appointment.
