Americans Lose $43 During Each Doctor Visit

A research study from Harvard Medical School has calculated how much time patients spend seeking medical care — and the dollar value of their lost time. The results are astonishing!

Quick Facts:

  • Typical visit to a doctor takes 121 minutes of the patient’s time
  • Patients spend 37 minutes in travel time
  • Patients spend 64 minutes waiting for care or filling out forms and adhoc administrative tasks
  • Patients get 20 minutes of face time with the physicians

Possible solutions:

  • Improve Efficiency
  • Offer non-face-to-face care
  • Reduce excess time burden
  • Offer patient-centered care

With Klara, it is possible to achieve all the above solutions.
