Medical patient scheduling systems are undoubtedly helpful in organising a physician's office hours schedule. Patient scheduling software allows the computerized scheduling of patient's appointments. They are designed to help physicians when there are missed appointments, last-minute calls and reschedules. The system enables the physician to input patient demographic, contact information, appointment times, reason for visit, chief complaints and billing/insurance information. Some of the top 5 patient scheduling systems at the moment include:
  • NeuMD PM
  • ADP AdvancedMD Practice Management Software
  • MediTouch HER Electronic Health Record Software
  • eClinical Works

NueMD Appointments enables the quick scanning of open appointments. It can also track cancellations and no-shows. Tracking the patients as they arrive, the system also tracks them when they check in and depart. This allows for complete control over the patient management system. NueMD Appointments is currently offered as a stand-alone scheduling system.

AdvancedMD is a scheduling application that can be securely accessed via the web from any location and can also be accessed by any approved office staff. The system can support recurring appointments, waiting lists, overbooking, cancellations and last-minute calls.

MediTouch EHR is an internet-based system and can be used in conjunction with the iPad. It can also be used on Mac and Windows operating systems. The MediTouch HER is a 2011 CCHIT-certified system.

With eClinical Works office staff are able to manage several provider's schedules via a number of offices from the same system. Recurring appointments can be made and schedules templates can be created.

The ECLIPSE system is an integrated EMR, medical billing and appointment scheduling system. It can be used for chiropractors, physical therapists and pain management practices. The system works for any practice size and is currently used by over 6,000 physicians across the USA.
