Morning Online Check-In service now available at Halifax Health Medical Center Emergency Department
Daytona Beach, FL- Halifax Health launched “AM Check-In Express” today at Halifax Health Medical Center- Daytona Beach. Through this online check-in platform patients with non-life threatening illnesses can schedule an appointment time* in the morning hours before 11:00 am. Scheduled times may be made from a computer or mobile device and patients may arrive at the emergency department at the scheduled time.* The platform is located on the Halifax Health website. Appointments may be scheduled in half-hour increments.
According to Dr. Stephen Viel, Medical Director of Emergency Services, “since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have seen a reduction in some emergency department patient volumes. Now we are offering solutions to people who desire efficient emergency care in the morning. It is as simple as going to halifaxhealth.org and clicking on AM Check In Express Once there, you schedule a time that works for you.
“Advance online check-in will help streamline the schedule process for the patient and give him/her an option as to the time and level of care they need,” said John Guthrie, a spokesperson for Halifax Health. “This is a convenience for patients who need treatment but are not in an emergency situation; they can hold their place in line online from their home or work and have clearer confirmation about when they will be seen. All of these advances are part of providing safe and convenient access to healthcare and educating the public on their care options.”
*AM Check In Express at Halifax Health is not a guaranteed appointment time, but using the program lets Halifax Health know when you will be arriving at the emergency department. Patients will be triaged by severity of symptoms.
