Introducing the Check In Kiosk. In Power Practice 5.2 we have added this feature as a way for the patient to check in for their appointment once they have arrived in the cinic. After entering their information and pressing Check In, the status of the appointment will change based on the Kiosk settings.
This feature is a separate application found in the powerptx folder.
The Kiosk can only run on devices that have the full version of Windows installed. Using a laptop or a Windows Surface Pro would be ideal.
This is the Check In screen which will be displayed for patients to enter their information. In this example, all areas have been enabled to show its full features. However, they can be customize certain areas to suit your preferences.
