Service allows patients to schedule follow-up visits with primary care providers

Milwaukee, Wis. - There’s a fast and easy alternative to scheduling an appointment with a primary care doctor at Aurora Health Care. Patients who need a follow-up visit with their Aurora physician can set up the appointment online via the secure Web site My Aurora.

“Online scheduling is another way to create greater access and convenience for our patients,” said Jeff Bailet, M.D., president of Aurora Medical Group. “Now patients can go online any time of the day or night to schedule appointments with their providers. It gives them 24/7 access to follow-up care.”

“With the number of people who rely on the Internet for appointment and travel scheduling, purchasing and communicating, it is only natural that we provide them the added convenience of scheduling an appointment with their physician,” Bailet said.

The online scheduling is available to approximately 344,000 Aurora patients of primary care physicians that include pediatricians, internal medicine, family practitioners and OB/GYNs.

My Aurora is a password-protected Web site on which patients can not only schedule an appointment but also ask their doctor a question, submit prescription renewals and refills, view or pay bills and find dates of past and scheduled appointments. They also can cancel or reschedule appointments.

It’s easy to get started scheduling follow-up appointments. First log onto www.Aurora.org, then find the “My Aurora” box in the upper right corner. Click on this to begin online scheduling. If you have never used My Aurora, you will need to register to set up a user name and password.

In addition to scheduling your own appointments, there are several other added benefits of using My Aurora. They include:

  • Lower risk of medical identity theft through secure online transactions.
  • The ability to schedule appointments for family members.
  • Appointment confirmations by e-mail or text messaging.
  • Paperless billing that reduces waste.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers care at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
