Enable and Set Up Online Appointment Booking

Updated: 06/23/2023|Views: 11387

If you subscribe to Engage, your Provider Profile includes the online appointment scheduling feature. Patients can easily schedule an appointment from your Provider Profile page that integrates directly with your calendar. Customization options allow you to set the time interval between appointments, the minimum notice time between the current time and requested appointment time, specific times for appointment scheduling, and office locations for each day of the week. 

For Engage and Telehealth subscribers, the online scheduler has the option for patients to request an in-office appointment or telehealth appointment. Once the online scheduler is enabled, patients will automatically have the option to select a telehealth appointment.

Available for Engage subscribers.
