Use Schedule of Providers for Shared Appointment Books


Schedule of Providers is used when multiple Providers share a Standard Appointment Book to correctly report on the clinical hours worked by each Provider. A schedule is set up in D4W/PSS to repeat weekly.   

For example, Dr McCavity works between 8am-12pm Monday to Friday, and his colleague Dr Jones works between 12pm-6pm Monday to Friday. Their Practice prefers to manage one appointment book and schedule Dr McCavities appointments in the morning and Dr Jones’ appointments in the afternoon.
