Outpatient clinics are the healthcare facilities that offer preliminary and emergency healthcare services which do not involve hospitalization to treat a patient. In the past few years, the vast rise in prevalence of chronic diseases and geriatric population have resulted in a vast rise of patient population worldwide.
