Using the patient list, I would like to select on either appointment or transaction at a 'specific location only'.
We can have a think about adding location as a filter on the Patient List but it must be noted that a Location filter could only be used when a transaction has been recorded. It is unrelated to appointments or default practitioners.
I have reflected on this. We use Location to distinguish between physical locations in Melbourne, which is a group of computers, e.g. Casey or Knox. When running the patient list, I am looking to see patients 'newly created' in one location only, e.g. Knox. I could use a reporting group of practitioners to achieve this, but I was looking for a shortcut, hence I was wondering about location. In hindsight, in two physical locations I have practitioners in the one practice group as they provide the same service. If I had a separate practise group for each location, that may be better for me moving forward and reporting separately when needed. Any thoughts?
The ‘Practice Locations’ feature (System Information ► Practice Locations) on the other hand, is only for recording transactions (cash movement) against specific physical locations, so it isn’t really suitable to finding new patients ‘created’ at a physical location.
It sounds like using a separate Practice Group for each location might be the way to go. Practice Groups are quite flexible, so you can change back if you decide it doesn’t work for you. You are welcome to contact our helpdesk so that we can review your requirements in further detail.
