Enhancement: Appointment Status Automatically Changes After Patient Check In

Check-In App Now Indicates Patient Arrivals in Your Calendar

With the release of version 2.3.1 of our Patient Check-In App, a subtle but important change was made. Now, when your patient completes the check-in process with the app, your patient’s appointment status will change to ‘Arrived’ in your calendar for both the web and mobile versions of your drchrono EHR.

On the mobile app, an arrived patient will be indicated by a yellow circle surrounding your patient’s portrait and text that says ‘Arrived’ on the right of the appointment.

On your web EHR calendar view, an arrived appointment will have a small yellow ‘A’ indicator icon in the upper left hand corner like all your other appointment statuses.
