October 2019 Feature Improvements

Planned Appointments

Planned Appointments was a massive hit and we had some great suggestions on how to improve it further! Below are the changes we made this month:

  • By far our biggest request was to be able to see notes linked to that appointment, so if you hover over the planned appointment you will now be able to see any notes linked to it.
  • We’ve also added an edited button, so if you do need to make a small change to the appointment, you can edit it from the planned appointment slot.
  • Finally, we’ve made it even easier to book them, just double click on the planned appointment and it will take you to the day it needs booking on!


Tablet users:

There now an indication for when a patient last updated their medical history through the tablet. So you will a ‘Last updated by practice’ and a ‘Last  updated on PearlPad’ date. Dentists & Nurses will still need to press update to acknowledge the medical changes in Pearl on the computer – this is an NHS requirement.

That’s everything this month! Please give us a call on 0116 275 9995 if you have any feature suggestions, improvements or simply want to learn more about new or existing features in Pearl.
