A PEI company has developed a new online booking tool meant to reduce wait times at the doctor's office. The app -- called Skip the Waiting Room -- allows patients to book their own appointments, but it also sends a text message or phone call to let them know when they should come in.

(Richardson's online tool is now being tested through a one-year pilot project at a clinic in Charlottetown.)
