Confirmed appointments (detail calendar view)
When calling to confirm appointments, click the box in the "Conf" column (next to the blue check mark). A drop down list appears, choose the appropriate symbol for which method you confirmed the appointment by: if you talked to the patient (X), left a message (LM), there was no answer (NA), or you emailed the patient (EM).
Clear appointment by clicking the symbol on the left. The PATIENT info will be stored so you can change the appointment to another date or time (short calendar view)
Record arrival of the patient. Click "HERE"
When a patient arrives, click in the arrival column next to their name. The time will be stamped and the box will have a red background indicating that patient has arrived and doctor has not started an exam yet. Once the doctor starts an exam for that patient, the time box will no longer be red. This feature will help you track patients who have arrived but not seen the doctor yet.
