In certain scenarios, you may need to create a follow up appointment. This may be necessary for certain treatments, such as root canal therapy or a crown, where multiple appointments are required in order to complete the treatment. Core Practice has a feature which will make it quicker and easier for you to create a follow up appointment; here's how to do it.
Follow up appointments
- Click on the appointment block, click More and then click Follow up appointment.
Sometimes (depending if the patient has any future appointments booked in Core Practice), you will be presented with the following situation:
If this occurs, check that the future appointment is no longer needed or is unrelated to the one which you are currently trying to book. If it is unrelated, click on Create New. If it's no longer needed, simply cancel that appointment first, and then return to create the follow up appointment.
- Click on Create Appointment after selecting a suitable time slot for the appointment and entering the details.
This will create an additional appointment; the original appointment will still be in the original place.
In addition to creating a follow up appointment, Core Practice also has a function which allows you to cancel or reschedule an appointment.
