Textbook Problem

The average waiting time for a patient at an El Paso physician’s office is just over 29 minutes, well above the national average of 21 minutes. In fact, El Paso has the longest physician’s office waiting times in the United States (*El Paso Times,* January 8, 2012). In order to address the issue of long patient wait times, some physician’s offices are using wait tracking systems to notify patients of expected wait times. Patients can adjust their arrival times based on this information and spend less time in waiting rooms. The following data show wait times (minutes) for a sample of patients at offices that do not have an office tracking system and wait times for a sample of patients at offices with an office tracking system.
