Track patient visit with appt status for wait time, etc.
Have a "stop watch" to show exactly how long an appointment has taken. Start a timer when a patient shows up for an appointment, so that at any time, the user can see how long a patient's visit has taken so far, with a sub-time for each phase of the visit (reception, operatory, waiting, etc.). Elapsed time for each phase of the visit. Break the time down by location to know how long the patient is waiting in the waiting room, how long in the operatory, how long getting x-rays, etc. Show the physical location of the patient on the appointment block. Store the tracking and provide reports for scheduling analysis. Staff can use this information to help determine which ADA codes might need Time Units adjusted to help improve efficiency in scheduling production times. [1496 114703]
