Hi when generating GP letters specifically for referrals we often write "attending our office since" and it would be beneficial (+ time saving) if there was a letter tag for first appointment or first billed that could be used in the standard letter. regards, El
We agree this would be a great addition the the currently available letter tags and the Front Desk software. We have now added to our development list a <<FirstAppointment>> letter tag to show the patients first ever appointment date, as well as a <<LastAppointment>> to show the last appointment date.
Please note this would be detecting the first ever appointment, regardless of whether the patient has had large periods of time without treatments. I understand some practices consider patients revisiting after a long absence as having an 'initial visit', so this is something to keep in mind.
