This report allows you to see flags attached to an appointment, to indicate an appointment will need to be reviewed.
There are 5 flag colors. Red, yellow, green, blue and black.
The clinic will choose the meaning for each flag color.
For example: a clinic can choose green to mean missing charges. There is not a place in VL to record the meaning. The office will need to keep track of that.
To attach a flag, you must go into a patient’s appointment, select appropriate flag under patient info panel and save/complete the appointment to lock the flag in place.
When a flag is selected, you will also see the flag visible on the Appointment Dashboard or in a patient’s file>Appointment Tab> Appointment History.
Flags added to an appointment will remain until the flag is removed.
To remove a flag, you will need to select the None button after the info needed has been added and checkout the appointment.
This report is run by Treating Provider (who the patient was scheduled under) and can be sorted by scheduled date/time or by status.
