Seamless Integration from Website to Blueprint OMS Schedule!
The roll out of version 3.0 is now underway, and we will be scheduling the upgrade for your clinic in the upcoming weeks.
Online Patient Appointment Booking
This feature allows patients to schedule their own appointments online, with 24/7 access.
Online Appointment Booking can be enabled in the Blueprint OMS Setup Menu, and provides full control over:
Which locations and providers are available for online bookings
Which appointment types can be booked online
Adding Online Appointment Booking to a Clinic Website
Integrating online booking into a website is straightforward, and is done by adding a simple link, or a small piece of HTML code.
Full instructions can be found here in the User Guide.
New or Existing Patient?
The patient will start by indicating whether or not they are a new patient. This will determine what appointment types are available to them.
Choosing Appointment Type
The available appointment types are configured in the Blueprint OMS Setup.
The locations available for online booking are configured in the Blueprint OMS Setup.
Select Provider (existing patients only)
Provider photos will be shown if they have been configured under Setup> User Administration> Users in Blueprint OMS.
For new patients, the selection will default to Any Available, with a clickable link allowing them to select a specific provider they may have been referred to.
Selecting Appointment Date and Time
Lastly, the patient is able to view a providers calendar showing available times/days that the provider is available for the specific appointment type.
Entering Personal Information
Upon completing a booking, the patient will receive a confirmation by email, which also contains links for cancelling or rescheduling the appointment.
The patient will receive additional confirmation emails, if they cancel or reschedule their appointment online.
