You can create masters for various types of Appointments. Appointment Type allows you to redefine the duration of the appointment, specify whether its inpatient and set colors to differentiate between different Appointment Types for analysis.
1. How to Create an Appointment Type
To Create an Appointment Type, go to:
Home > Healthcare > Consultation Setup > Appointment Type
Enter the "Type".
Check "Is Inpatient" if the Appointments created under this Type will be used for IPD.
Set the Default Duration (In Mins) so that when the Appointment Type is selected in Patient Appointment, the duration gets set automatically.
You can also set a color for each Appointment Type.
The color will help you identify the appointments of a particular type in the Calendar view.
2.1 Medical Department wise Billing Items and Charges
From version 13 onwards, you can set up department-wise appointment/consultation charges in the Appointment Type.
If you want to set generic default charges and billing items, irrespective of any department, you can add a record in the Appointment Type Service Items table with no department selected.
