MedWaitTime, a new Web and mobile service aimed to help patients determine if their doctor is running late for an appointment, has launched in Chicago.

The technology, developed by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Vishal Mehta with two partners, is live with 10 Chicago-area doctors, with plans to be incorporated into local emergency rooms as well. Patients who sign up with the service receive text messages to notify them when their doctor is late, and Mehta is planning to launch an iPhone app for the service as well.

The group has spent more than $200,000 on developing and testing the service and they plan to charge $50 a month per doctor and $300 a month for each hospital department.
