Comments

  1. Kirsten Protos

    For the next update, can you add a function to the appointment menu that pops up when you right click on the appointment (or a link in the appointment box that opens in a new window) that links directly to a new encounter for that specific appointment? This would allow us to start a new encounter sheet more efficiently without having to go out of the scheduler and over to clinical desktop and click into the appointment list to start an encounter sheet.

      Kirsten, Thanks for the feedback. In a normal clinical workflow, the Appointment scheduler screen is available for front office and other non clinical staff. Providing a link for charting will expose patient charts which most of the doctors doesn’t want to allow. That is the reason why we have clinical desktop as a separate menu where all the appointments are listed and available for doctors and other clinical staff who has access to patient charts.
