Following the advances in mobile communication and information technology, smart phones have been used in a wide variety of commercial, social, entertainment, file sharing and health transactions and applications. The current procedures in healthcare environment for patient registration, appointment scheduling and payment are time consuming and somehow tiresome. Traditionally, patients were supposed to fill out registration forms, wait for being called, and finally stand in long lines for payment procedures. In some places, appointment could be done online via web but still the patient has to walk in with appointment card and in our case, provide the insurance booklet to the front desk personnel to pay for services and receive discounts for insurance. Therefore, the present study intended to propose a model using Near Field Communication-enabled mobile application for a medical clinic which currently offers online and call services for making an appointment, though patient waiting time is still too much in the current process of payment for services.
