New MyChart feature eases the way for walk-in visits
Getting a blood draw, X-ray or seeing an urgent care provider got easier (and faster) this month with a new Asante MyChart feature that estimates walk-in wait times at various Asante outpatient locations and allows you to check in within the app before your visit.
To access the feature, click “Menu,” then “Find Care Now.” You’ll be asked if you’re coming in for walk-in lab work, an X-ray or urgent care. Based on your selection, you’ll be taken to a map featuring clinic locations as well as estimated wait times at each site, including the COVID-19 drive-thru specimen-collection site in Medford.
Choose your preferred location, then tap “I’m on my way” to complete the preregistration and let the clinic know when you plan to arrive.
Although no appointment is needed, labs and imaging (X-ray only) require an order from your provider.
The service is available to Asante employees now and will soon open to anyone with an Asante MyChart account.
