At the clinic, which is set to open at a new location this month, Virginia Mason will utilize the solution to reduce patient wait time and increase staff efficiencies throughout the multi-disciplinary clinical areas, according to the company.

Virginia Mason Medical Center is a non-profit, regional healthcare system that combines a primary and specialty care group practice of more than 480 physicians with a 336-bed acute-care hospital in Seattle. Virginia Mason also has a network of clinics located throughout the Puget Sound area, a nursing residence and Adult Day Health program, and a research center.
