Have calender sheets to hand out to patients.
I think that it would be easier for our patients to be able to have a printed calender sheet for their schedules. It would e easier for them to keep there appointment days straight and to make other notes if needed.
It would also be nice if the printout would state if the appointment is a re-evaluation or not.
The current appointment schedule is problematic for those with difficulty reading and with visual problems.
There are various reports that we can use for this but possibly another way to do this is to have the appointment reminder emails be auto sent to the patient. This is a free feature for On-Site and Web that we can setup for anyone that's interested. Basically a real time email will be sent to the patient's email address upon appointment creation. It can be customized and includes an ICS file that the patient can use to add to their calendar on their smart phone, calendar, outlook, etc.
If this would help anyone, please contact us and we can get this setup for you.
agree. have made same suggestion
Thanks for the info on deleting the end time of the future appointments!
If you want, check out TheraOffice NOW (the brown icon on the desktop). Go down to where it says "Report Viewer / Enterprise Manager" and then click on the video titled: "Modifying Appointments By Patient Report" you can modify the report real fast (probably will take 2-3 minutes) or if you want to submit a custom report request we can do it too. Hope that helps.
You may want to submit a request for a custom report that does this. The folks at TheraOffice adjused the standard appointment printout for us so that the end time was eliminated from the printout. (We also added the appoiuntment note to the printout, if something was enetered there. e.g., if a patient asked for therapist X but was told that only Y was available, and accepted an appointment with Y, we noted that in the appointment notte - and that appears on the printout we provide to patients.)
...and on the printed schedule (on whatever form is used) the "end times" for their appointments are NOT printed. Patients accidentally glance at end time and mistake it for start time.
