CHRISTUS Physician Group introduces a new service that helps patients more seamlessly access CHRISTUS Physician Group physicians via online scheduling. 
At launch, the service facilitates online appointment-making with participating orthopedic specialists and family medicine/primary care providers. This service is powered by ZocDoc, a national company known for its innovation in patient experiences.
 
To use this FREE service, patients visit http://www.christushealth.org/sanantonioarea. Patients can see doctors’ schedules in real time, along with qualifications, verified patient reviews, photos, and additional tools for selecting providers who best fit their needs. Patients can then choose an open timeslot and schedule their own appointment with a few clicks. This service improves the traditional patient experience by eliminating time-consuming phone calls, helping patients book with CHRISTUS Physician Group doctors 24/7, and even sending email and text reminders about upcoming appointments to help reduce no-shows. 

Physicians who are part of the CHRISTUS Physician Group have been selected by CHRISTUS for excellence. When you choose CHRISTUS Physician Group physicians, you have an elite group of doctors who embody advanced medicine and compassionate care.

The CHRISTUS Physician Group is pleased to bring cutting edge, online scheduling, to the patients in the San Antonio and New Braunfels area. This technology paves the way for simplified, online appointment scheduling, which is the first impression of our Physician Group. “I am confident the patient experience in any of our CHRISTUS Physician Group offices will be one that exemplifies the CHRISTUS mission, of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ – in a family center environment, offering a pleasant patient experience,” said Jason Markham, chief operating officer, CHRISTUS Physician Group, Irving, Texas. 
 
The typical ZocDoc appointment takes place in just 24 hours. This is made possible by ZocDoc’s online marketplace that shows doctors’ real-time availability – including last-minute cancellations and no-shows – to patients who are seeking care.
