NextPatientPlease is a Windows application that allows doctors (or any other professionals) to inform the reception desk that they are free for the next patient (client). 

Using your existing computer network, it does not need any additional wiring. 

Although designed for the needs of family doctors, it can readily be used in many other situations. 

At the press of a key, the reception desk is alerted that you are ready for your next patient. 

The alert consists of an optional customizable tone, popup window with your name and room and a “coloured light”. The receptionist can choose from a selection of provided tones for each room (or record a new tone) and select a colour for each room. It is then easy for receptionist to know which room is calling, audibly and visually.

In addition, hitting a 3 key combination (usually Ctrl + Alt + Spacebar) transmits an immediate request for assistance (“Panic Button”)

NextPatientPlease consists of 2 component applications:
ReceptionNextPlease which is installed at the reception desk computer
NextPatientPlease client which is installed on consulting room computers (as required)
