Appointment Scheduling

Healthcare staff can schedule patient appointments, specifying dates, times, and the healthcare provider they will be seeing. Patients may request appointments through various channels, such as phone calls or online portals.

Resource Allocation

Manage the allocation of resources, such as examination rooms, medical equipment, and staff, to ensure that everything is available and prepared for each patient's appointment.

Patient Reminders

Automated reminders, such as text messages, emails, or phone calls, can be sent to patients to confirm their appointments and reduce no-show rates.

Provider Schedules

Healthcare providers' schedules are easily accessible, allowing for efficient management of their availability. Providers can specify their working hours, vacation days, and other time-off preferences.

Waitlist Management

Patients can be placed on a waitlist for desired appointment times or healthcare providers. When a slot becomes available, patients on the waitlist are notified and can be scheduled accordingly.


VEHRDICT allows customization of scheduling rules and templates to accommodate various healthcare specialties and clinic workflows.


Advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning can further optimize scheduling algorithms, predict patient appointment preferences, and provide real-time insights into healthcare provider availability. Additionally, interoperability with other healthcare systems is possible, allowing for seamless coordination of care across different providers and facilities.
