This medical center already uses forms to channel doctors. Because of that patients have to wait some more time. So patient's time is wasting. If the patient make the appointment through a telephone call, it will be a huge problem. And some times the forms can be loss. Because of that, if any patient wants to change his/her appointment, it couldn't change. If any patient wants to cancel his/ her appointment, there is no system to do that. And while filling the paper form receptionist might make mistakes specially fill the payments. Because of those reasons this medical center wants to computerized their doctors channeling system. And I think through this system they can override these problems successfully.
