Before the era of IT and close integration of IT in our lives, going to doctor was not that easy. One had to go through the terrible hassle on the appointment counter which was, no doubt, a time wasting and tiring process. To get over the problem, appointment scheduling systems were introduced in the market in the near past. Initially they were not that mature but with the improvements suggested by the users and the general public now we have some really useful appointment management systems. All the systems in market have the same purpose but with different features. The difference is basically based on the features like some allow double booking, recurring appointments, color coded appointments and etc. whereas some do not.
Integration of Schedule Management Systems with Practice Management systems:
The new problem arose when Practice management systems were introduced and being highly used for managing the clinics. Using two different systems for managing the appointments and managing the practice was becoming a burden. Clinic staff had to do redundant work for patient demographics and a lot of other things as well. Then service providers merged the schedule management system into the practice management system to avoid rework. Now almost every Practice management system is integrated with the patient schedule management system in order to ensure comfort and efficiency in managing a medical practice.
