In a recent Ipsos survey, a staggering 68% of Canadians disclosed that they did not make a doctor’s appointment due to various barriers emphasizing the need for solutions to improve access to healthcare services. As these challenges persist, it’s crucial to explore how cutting-edge platforms like the Porton Suite are actively addressing these issues through advanced features, particularly in online appointment scheduling.

The Barriers Canadians Face

Long wait times, difficulty securing timely appointments, and the lack of after-hours availability are some of the main contributors to medical appointment no-shows in Canada. To alleviate these challenges, it’s essential to consider forward-thinking solutions that prioritize efficiency and patient convenience.
