New Feature: Online check in status and other appointment status improvements

Improvements to Appointment Statuses

We’re excited to announce that this week that two improvements have been made to appointment statuses: a new automatically set appointment status and better color coding on the iPad.

New Appointment Status: Checked In Online

We welcome the arrival of a new appointment status: ‘Checked In Online’. This appointment status indicates if your patient has used the onpatient patient portal on web or mobile to check in, allowing you and your staff to quickly differentiate if the patient has physically arrived and checked in at your front office versus at home via onpatient. This status is identified by a pink indicator color and is automatically set when a patient completes the check in, but can also be set manually by your staff.

Improved Color Coding on iPad

We’ve made improvements to the color coding of appointment statuses on the iPad. Earlier, colors would have a degree of variance from the colors set in the drchrono web EHR. While this isn’t necessarily impactful right now, this change paves the path for completely customizable appointment statuses coming soon.


These two improvements are available immediately on the drchrono web EHR, version 10.0.69 of the drchrono EHR/EMR mobile app, version 2.4.0 of the drchrono Patient Check-In app, and version 2.7.1 of the onpatient Patient Portal app.
