One of the best packages in the market - a comprehensive, easy-to-use patient scheduling solution that is sure to improve any medical office's front desk operation and ability to manage daily activities.

MedStar's scheduler is visually attractive and easy to use. Our system uses scheduler templates to establish the availability of each medical office resource, including the doctor, nurses, medical assistants and other providers. It also allows users to create schedules for other office resources, such as rooms and equipment. Now your office can efficiently manage every resource at its disposal.

MedStar's Medical Scheduler lets you develop custom layouts by user. Each user will view only those doctor schedules or resource schedules they need to see. This feature reduces the possibility of scheduling errors - and makes scheduling a lot simpler.

MedStar's Medical Scheduler is a true Microsoft Windows application that puts the power of Microsoft's systems at the user's fingers. Users can click into timeslots to complete their scheduling functions; they reschedule appointments using "drag and drop" capabilities; they can delete appointments with simple actions.

Among the many features that MedStar's Medical Scheduler will provide to your medical office are:
  • visit status, including verified, checked-in, checked-out, etc.
  • unlimited reasons for visits, including duration by reason
  • recall notices, with the ability to send letters or reminders
  • custom visit comments
  • waiting list capabilities
  • daily scheduler report, and multiple other useful reports
  • custom report creation capabilities
  • appointment search engines
