It is used to record and display the relevant information while making appointments or quickly retrieving information about them.
It is as light-weight as we think is possible and we try not to overload it with something that is not so critical at this stage, while still showing you what is. The appointment blocks display the provider (colour coded), patient's name, current status of the appointment and appointment type.
Mousing over the appointment brings a pop-up window showing extended information like appointment notes, patient's details and alerts. Clicking on the appointment opens a window with detailed information and further links to other relevant data. Each stage is more detailed than previous, providing you with a flexibility to retrieve critical information at once and detailed information if necessary.
The appointment book also has a section to place appointments on hold. The appointment blocks are draggable and resizable.
