Set Appointment Complete

In the Appointments Module, select the appointment. In the toolbar, click Complete

Alternatively:

Once a scheduled appointment is finished, you should set it complete. This will mark all procedures attached to the appointment complete as well.

Several preferences affect behavior when setting an appointment complete.

When an appointment is set complete, the following changes occur:

Note:
  • If the appointment provider does not match at least one provider on an attached procedure, the user will receive a prompt.
  • Manually changing a procedure's status to complete on the Procedure Info window only changes the status. It does not change the procedure date or copy default procedure notes.

Appointment Texts

If Appointment Texts is enabled, and Opt in Prompt on Appt Complete is checked, a prompt will appear when an appointment is set complete and the patient has not yet opted in or out of appointment texts. The user must read the prompt to the patient and obtain verbal consent to allow appointment texts.

If the patient does not consent to appointment texts, uncheck the box and click Close.
