Scheduler upgrade WinOMS

Scheduler upgrade WinOMS

Our office has been on WinOMS for about 8 years or so, I was told 8 years ago "enhancements" to the scheduler were on the way. Nothing has happened. I was wondering if you plan to add enhancements that would allow us to follow the patient through like Dentix has.  There is a bar on the left of the appointment that allows you to see when the patient has arrived, been seated, checked out. It makes it very simple to see at a glance where your patient is.  Also, when searching for a patient seen on a previous day, you can look for the color of the appointment which aids tremendously in finding the patient if you cannot remember their name. There are other reasons this helps but I will not get list them. Please call me at (615) 890-8000. Murfreesboro Oral Surgery & Implant Center. Teresa

Did you ever get a response to this inquiry, or the usual cold shoulder?
This is an exceedingly universal and helpful tool that is a standard on many, err most, EMRs today (both Med and Dental).
Would love to hear feedback on possible implementation?

I have a number of enhancements i would like to see in the scheduler, including better color-coding, improving notation on appointments, associating dollar values to appointments, and tracking the patient's journey through the practice on the day of their visit.  The latter enhancement may not be as directly associated to the appointment book, but instead to the EMR as you suggest.  

The discussions eight years ago about scheduler enhancement were related to a full overhaul of the schedule that would have been very expensive to make, and disruptive to adopt; the project was shelved in lieu of other, more beneficial changes.

Later on this year, after the release of WinOMS v10, I will have the opportunity to enact some of the changes I am imagining.  I will be able to share more perhaps as early as this summer, and otherwise around the Global Oral Health Summit.

We currently have 2 doctors with 3 appt book columns each. I have been told you cannot add a time bar to the right of the scheduler. Could you at the very least ask that they add this feature, and it would be super if , like in a spreadsheet, when you clicked on an appt book line it would highlight the entire line all the way over to the time bar, maybe in a soft gray color, and bold on the column you are adding an appt to, or even just "light up" the time on the far left to indicate what time you are selecting. . I cannot imagine how complicated this is for offices with 3 or more doctor schedules.
