version 5.2+

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.

Please ensure that you have a login created to access the Check In Kiosk or use a login whose password is not shared.

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.

To customize the settings, select the Escape (Esc) key on the keyboard. This will prompt you to enter the password which was used to log in to the Kiosk.

This is the home screen for the Check-In Kiosk and the screen you will first see when you sign into it.

To edit you settings, select the Tasks drop-down menu, and select Settings…
