RediClinic Adds Appointments, Online Scheduling for Convenient Care Clinics

Delivers High-Quality Healthcare Without the Wait

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RediClinic, a leading operator of convenient care clinics, announced
today that it has added online appointment scheduling to its
comprehensive menu of options for customers seeking high-quality,
convenient and affordable healthcare. Using RediClinic’s new online
appointment system, customers can now schedule same- or next-day
appointments from their desktop, tablet or mobile device, making access
to RediClinic’s high-quality, affordable healthcare even easier than it
has been.

Using RediClinic’s user-friendly online appointment system, customers
can schedule appointments with a board-certified clinician who can treat
more than 30 common medical conditions as well as provide a broad range
of preventive services including screenings, medical tests,
immunizations and basic physical exams. Unlike existing registration
systems that place patients in a queue, RediClinic customers can make a
same- or next-day appointment for a specific time at a chosen location.
While walk-in appointments remain available, the option to schedule an
appointment for a specific date, time and location provides added
convenience for customers who can plan in advance and don’t want to wait.

“We’re excited to be launching our new online appointment system in time
for back-to-school season so children and their parents won’t need to
wait for physicals and immunizations,” said Web Golinkin, RediClinic
CEO. “With just a few clicks, customers can make same- or next-day
appointments at a time that works for them, a feature that advances our
commitment to providing maximum convenience in high-quality healthcare.”

RediClinic’s online scheduling system not only saves time for customers,
it also enables clinicians to spend more time on patient care by
relieving them of the need to capture certain kinds of basic patient
information. RediClinic’s online appointment system allows customers to
enter their demographic data and answer a brief set of questions to
determine the reason for their visit and set an appointment time.
Patients then complete the registration process using a tablet once they
arrive at the clinic.

“Patient response to our new online appointment system has been
overwhelmingly positive since it was introduced in select locations in
June,” said Danielle Barrera, RediClinic chief operating officer.
“Expanding this service to all RediClinic locations is the next logical
step in ensuring that RediClinic continues to deliver the superior
service that has long been its hallmark.”

RediClinic currently operates 36 clinics inside H-E-B grocery stores in
Houston, Austin and San Antonio, Texas, and 53 clinics inside select
Rite Aid stores in the greater Philadelphia, Baltimore/Washington D.C.
and Seattle areas. Since opening its first in-store clinic in 2005,
RediClinic has successfully treated more than two million patients. In
addition to treating common medical conditions and providing preventive
care, the company’s acclaimed Weigh Forward® weight/lifestyle management
program is offered in the company’s clinics and licensed to other
providers. RediClinic is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rite Aid
Corporation. For more information about clinic locations, hours of
