Appointment Scheduling in Bahmni

This feature will be available with the 0.90 release.

About the Feature

Hospitals and other clinical set ups often offer multiple services to their patients. These services may have defined days and times when they are offered. For e.g Diabetic clinic runs every Monday 10.00 AM - 12.00 PM. Further,  we have providers in the hospital who provide these specific services to patients. Appointments are the means by which hospitals and clinics tend to manage their resources and time to offer services to a patient. 

Appointment scheduling feature is intended to provide the users the ability to schedule and manage appointments for patients in a typical hospital/clinical set up. With the help of this feature one will be able to:

  1. Set up services in a hospital
  2. Create and manage appointments for a patient 
  3. View the appointments and patient load per service
