Play Time and Patients Four star rating


In Time and Patients, players manage a struggling walk in clinic. Their task is to repair the inefficiencies that currently exist. To do this, they must examine both the A.M. and P.M. shifts for each day of the week in order to identify a set of unique problems. Each shift has four goals including profit, throughput time, patient satisfaction and minimizing walkouts. A player has successfully repaired a shift when all four goals have met or surpassed the target threshold. To navigate the clinic towards the goals, players have several tools at their disposal including hiring and scheduling staff, adjusting options to the physical clinic, and reviewing both weekly and shift reports.
