EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Jan. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Exer Urgent Care, an ER alternative staffed by ER doctors, today announced that it will offer patients a Virtual Line feature for in-person care at all of their 19 Southern California locations. Exer is the first SoCal-based, multi-clinic urgent care providers and amongst one of the largest in the nation to begin offering this service. The Virtual Line provides patients the convenience of queuing up from anywhere and is designed to help alleviate long lines at the clinics, while also helping patients maintain social distancing and provide a safer environment.
With the new Virtual Line, patients can get in line to be seen at an Exer clinic from the comfort of their home, office or anywhere they are comfortable. Text messages will alert patients of their place in line and when it's time to arrive at the clinic. The four easy steps patients can expect from Exer's Virtual Line include:
Join the Virtual Line by selecting one of the 19 locations from a drop down menu.
Move freely and wait wherever you want.
Get text updates on your place in line.
Get notified when it's almost your turn and come to Exer to be seen by an Exer provider.
"Offering a Virtual Line option for in-person care, allows us to provide our patients with a safer, more convenient experience by eliminating the need to wait in a physical line outside of our Exer Urgent Care locations," said Rob Mahan, CEO, Exer Urgent Care. "We remain committed to innovating and improving the patient experience, and will continue to expand our services to meet the needs of the community, while also working to prevent further overburdening of hospitals amid the COVID-19 surge."
Exer Urgent Care is Southern California's fastest-growing ER alternative with on-site x-ray, IV, laceration and diagnostics. Exer offers an online telehealth platform, VirtualCare by Exer, which allows patients real-time access to a medical provider via video chat. Each Exer Urgent Care location now offers flu shots and COVID-19 testing with next day results. The recently launched patient portal allows access to test results as well as discharge and other health information, to those who register.
Exer locations are open seven days a week from 9AM to 9PM, with the last patient registered at 8:30PM. Exer accepts most Medicare, PPO and HMO insurance, and offers affordable payment options for those with minimal or no health insurance.
