At present, users go through a number of steps in order to Check-In a patient:
1. Select Patient - only required if the appointment doesn't have one
2. Select Work List - if the schedule is associated with work lists
3. New Weight - record the patient's current weight
4. Customise Flow Sheet - creates a Smart Flow Sheet for the patient, if the selected work list requires one
5. Print - print documents associated with the schedule/work list
Each of these steps display a new window, and each window requires a click to get to the next step. On completion of the steps, the Edit Visit window is displayed.
To reduce the number of clicks, the steps will be displayed in a single Check-In window. This will contain:
The clinician to assign to any records created during Check-In.
If the practice Use Logged In Clinician option is:
enabled, this will default to the current clinician, or the appointment clinician if the current user is not a clinician
disabled, this will default to the appointment clinician
If a patient is present, this will display the name of the patient.
If not, a binocular field will be displayed to select one of the customer's patients.
