The new Aurora Health
Care clinic at 120 Chapman Blvd. in Mukwonago will open
MUKWONAGO — The new $5 million Aurora Health Care clinic
slated to open Monday will offer a model that eliminates
wait times by allowing patients to check into their own
rooms upon arrival.
The 15,000-square-foot clinic at 120 Chapman Blvd. will
offer primary care, urgent care, imaging and lab
services with the capacity to offer dermatology
orthopedics as well as ear, nose and throat services,
according to a press release.
Using Aurora Health Care’s new “Versus Badge System”
technology, patients will receive a badge upon arrival
and directed to a room right away, said Anne Jahnke,
senior director administrator of clinic operations for
Aurora Health Care.
“They can go directly back to that exam room instead of
having to sit like we typically do in our waiting
areas,” Jahnke said.
In combination with the badge system, the layout of the
facility places physicians at the center of the clinic,
which allows them to collaborate more efficiently,
Jahnke said. Moreover, physicians can monitor and locate
their patients using the badge system.
Another added feature is that patients will schedule
followup appointments right from their exam room before
they leave “so that patients are really confident when
they walk out the door that every need has been met,”
Aurora Health Care began implementing the new Versus
Badge System in an effort to streamline health care
while making the experience more centered on the
patient, Jahnke said.
“What is in the best interest of our patients and how we
can make sure provide excellent service and protecting
patient’s privacy?” Jahnke said. “I think all those
factors came into play as we decided how we want to
deliver care in our new clinics.”
