Patient Locator (Advanced) on how to sort future appointments to identify patient drop off’s

Go to Patients > Patient Locator > Advanced and choose ‘no future appointments’ under appointment sort.
Please allow upto 30 seconds for the data to load.
This gives you a list of all patients who have no future appointments (those who are no longer on the schedule). Now, you will see a button called ‘most recent’.
Click that button and the system will further sort this list by most recent patients.
Please allow upto 30 seconds for the system to sort this data.
This will allow you to immediately identify the most recent patients who ‘dropped off the schedule’ and have no future appointments. It’s a good idea for the front desk to run this report once a week and call patients who have no future appointments, and who just recently dropped off the schedule.
You also have the option to download this list in an excel file format or in a PDF format.

New Feature:
Checked in indicator is now available in Patient Locator’s Advanced tab. To filter checked in patients, simply choose ‘Checked in’ option from ‘Appointment Sort’ dropdown menu and the list of patients that have been checked in will be generated.
