New Online Appointment Service

January 26, 2007 is a new service available in just a few cities but offers a convience service for making appointments online. ” ( is a new online marketplace for medical services and physician information that improves access to care by facilitating a faster, easier and more satisfying experience for all.” Cities currently covered are LA, San Francisco, Philly, New York and Boston. For some specialist, the initial consultation has a specific price tag, such as, LA cardiologists at $265 – $320. It also indicates if the doctor does not have any available appointments to choose from but you can request an appointment.

To me this looks like a beta launch because of the limited number of physicians using the service and the fact that some features are not yet enabled. I wonder about its potential success since it is a limited service offering. Might be more successful if it was part of a more comprehensive patient portal like RevolutionHealth.
