Book Ahead informs you of the number of patients checked-in and waiting for a physician at a Renown Health ER or FastTrack ER.
We refer to this as our "door-to-doc" time. The number of people in line is updated every 10 minutes.
An ER nurse will determine the urgency and complexity of the care you need.
If your condition is less severe and requires no more than one hospital resource (X-Ray, lab tests, etc.) the ER nurse may assign you to a FastTrack ER where you will receive care sooner.
