Patients spend an average of 30 minutes in the waiting room and a further 16 minutes waiting in an exam room before their physician arrives. AccentHealth's waiting room TV network and its recently-launched exam room digital tablet program provide patients with engaging and relevant content and interactive features to make the most productive use of this time and prepare for the doctor-patient discussion.
