Our clients are finding the Appointment Scheduling module very useful, and are requesting some further enhancements to reduce the time taken by users to create appointments. This is in the same ethos as a previous post, but with different requirements.
Have such requirements surfaced in your implementations? Or have any of you given thought to the user flow to achieve this? We are still at early stages of analysis and discussions
1. Create a Secondary Appointment associated with the Primary Appointment: For eg. When a user is creating an appointment for service A, there is also always an appointment created for service B on the same day. In this case, each appt has a supplementary appt - we want to redirect the user to the page to create the supplementary appointments. As in the above visit example, if a patient has an initiation appointment, he/she will also have a pharmacist appointment. Can the system support in creating both of these?
Potential solution: In Admin panel, create a hierarchy for related appointments. When a user is creating Appt A, have a prompt to check if he/she also wants to create Appt B. In this case, all details are pulled regarding patient, service, date, etc. and user only needs to add the Provider & Start Time
2. Create Multiple Appts for a Patient easily: For instance, a patient on being registered will be scheduled for ~7-10 appts. Therefore, the same patient has appointments for different services. When patient comes for a visit 1 Appt: Baseline - see a doctor 2 Appts: Initiation- Doctor and pharmacist 3 Appts: M1 - Doctor & Pharmacy & Lab 3 Appts - Doctor & Pharmacy & Lab 1 Visit - Doctor
Currently, the user has to create an appointment one by one for each. Would an option to clone appointments, and edit details as required help here?
3. Add location as a filter type: Currently, we can filter appointments by provider, service & service type. We also want the ability to filter by location(s).
