This latest update is packed with exciting new features and enhancements designed to improve your experience and streamline your clinic's operations. We listened to your feedback and have delivered a variety of improvements to make your life easier and your patients happier. So, get ready to explore all the fantastic updates we've made in this new version.

Let's dive in! πŸš€

Scheduling and Calendar

  • The latest version of Clinicminds, version 5.4, introduces new scheduling restrictions for work hours. These new restrictions provide greater control over the timing of appointments, making it easier to allocate specific time slots for particular treatments, surgery, or e.g., video consultations.

    For manual bookings, these restrictions are clearly highlighted in the calendar, while online bookings are automatically adjusted based on available slots. This feature is ideal for healthcare professionals who require precise management of their schedules to ensure maximum efficiency and optimal patient care.

  • To assist with approving online bookings, we have included a button that enables you to view existing patient details while in the process of approving. This feature provides convenient and fast access to patient details and history information while manually reviewing the approval process.

  • A new feature has been implemented that allows staff to make internal notes regarding the rejection of an online booking. The reasons for rejection are not shared with the patient. This functionality provides a means for staff to document pertinent information while maintaining confidentiality.

  • Now, you can provide a reason for canceling an appointment or rejecting an online booking. This information will be visible to the patient and included in the email to ensure clear communication and prevent any confusion.

Records

  • To cater to different personnel performing the sign-in and sign-out, separate permission for entering sign-in and sign-out checklists in treatment records has been implemented, removing the need for practitioner permissions.

  • With Clinicminds 5.4, there's no need to worry if you missed any important details when closing a record. You can easily reopen it within 24 hours and make any necessary additions or edits. This feature makes it even easier to ensure that your records are complete and accurate.

Gift Cards

Improvements & Bug Fixes

  • The new update also enables the optionally adding of a phone number to users (clinic staff).

  • Aesthetic improvements have been made by redesigning some buttons on the patient screen.

  • We restyled the β€˜outstanding’ or β€˜paid’ stamps on invoices created within Clinicminds to fit the nowadays styles.

  • We made sure that patients are now clearly prompted to home-sign (consent) forms after an online booking when this feature is enabled by default in your settings.

  • We implemented several enhancements to ensure the correct date format on appointment confirmation and reminders and Clinicminds invoices for Stripe fees.
