Wait from home, not the ER at Baptist Easley

EASLEY — Baptist Easley has implemented InQuicker, a new way to access ER care. Patients can check-in for a projected treatment time at, arrive at the designated time, and be promptly seen by a health care professional using an innovative online service called InQuicker.

Once a prospective patient receives a projected treatment time at, he or she can wait at home rather than sit in the waiting room. Baptist Easley’s commitment is to make sure that once the patient arrives, he or she is promptly seen by a health care professional.

InQuicker is not an appointment or reservation service, as the nature of ER triage does not allow for the scheduling of medical treatment. InQuicker estimates treatment times based on facility conditions and allows its users to wait from the comfort of home, rather than the waiting room.

InQuicker users do not skip the ER wait, nor will they be seen ahead of individuals in the waiting room. In the event of a projected treatment time delay, InQuicker users are sent real-time notifications via phone call and email so they can continue waiting at home.

InQuicker is intended only for individuals with non-life-threatening or non-debilitating medical conditions. It’s a simple and convenient way for people with busy lives and busy families to access care conveniently for minor medical needs. If you’re in doubt about the severity of your condition, you should always seek immediate care.

The InQuicker system is designed to filter certain symptom keywords that may indicate a life-threatening or debilitating medical condition, in addition to a review of a user’s symptoms by a health care professional at Baptist Easley. Those indicating such medical conditions are prompted to dial 911 or go immediately to the nearest emergency room.
