I am unaware of a notification that could auto-pop up. If the patient is in office, and clinical makes an appointment, a front desk user can quickly see if a patient has appts perform the following: Go to Inoffice Roster, then select patient, and then Scheduled appointments (S) . There you will see all appts made for patient. OR, Inoffce Roster: select patient name, Electonic router ( E), then (N) for Next appointment- if there is another appointment the appointment card will show. Also, if no appointment is scheduled, the option of (N) Next Appt will be grey/ unselectable.
To know if an appointment has been made for a patient follow these steps:
From the Appointments window, you can get to the book by clicking "Appt Book"; again located on Options bar on left. You can then make new appointments for the selected patient or change an existing appointment. This is so you do not not have to Open the appointment book separately and then find the appointment. Using the patient appointment window will take you to the exact appointment you wish to edit.
I would encourage everyone to always start making appointments by finding the patient first. Click Appointments on the options bar.
FYI - You can use the keyboard hot key "S" and then "B" for the appointment book.
