Medical scheduling software is usually a feature of practice management software. It allows medical practices to manage patient scheduling electronically and can integrate with an EMR or EHR system.
A medical patient scheduling software can help your practice organize the daily, weekly, and monthly schedule of your practice. It can also also help you handle skipped appointments, last-minute reschedules, and walk-ins.
Additionally, if your patients frequently miss appointments, a medical appointment scheduling software can send out automatic alerts to remind patients of their upcoming appointments. Most systems allow you to customize the information included in these reminder emails, so you can send out personalized messages such as directions to your practice to ensure patients show up on time.
