Patient online bookings and more

Joel Friedlaender·

We are really excited to officially announce that Patient Online Bookings are now available in Cliniko. I say “officially announce” because it was actually released a couple of weeks ago and over 25% of our customers are already using it. The response so far has been great. We have already received a lot of great feedback on this feature and made some changes accordingly. We also have a whole bunch of other minor improvements we will be making to it over the next few weeks. There have been quite a few other changes too (one of them quite big), you can see the details below.

I also wanted to mention our quickly growing community on our facebook page. This has become a great place to discuss new features that we release or anything in general related to Cliniko. If you do use facebook please visit our page and click the “like” button. It’s one of the easiest ways to stay in the loop. If you’re not a facebook user or prefer to keep things separate, we also have a very active community and lots of interesting discussions on our support forum.
