内容摘要:We examine the launch of a mobile outpatient appointment app in China to study the effect of information provision and a streamlined appointment process on hospital operations and the alignment of healthcare supply and demand.Using a longitudinal dataset on hospital operations and a difference-in-differences model,we document that the app increases completed hospital consultations by 9.5%,through boosting registrations by 4.8% and reducing appointment cancellations by 3.4%.The app improves queuing efficiency in overcrowded hospitals and draws demand for underutilized ones.Supported by additional evidence from a subset of patients' electronic medical records,we also find that the app directs patients to the hospital and department more suitable to their medical conditions and to less busy days,resulting in a better match between patient demand and hospital service.
