Flu Shot Scheduling Software

Manage Your Patients & Flu Shot Clinic Efficiently

With AppointmentPlus® online scheduling software, your patients can book their own appointments online and you can easily see how many vaccines you will need in the coming days and weeks. If a day shows a particularly high number of appointments for flu shots, you’ll also be able to schedule your staff appropriately. This way, you’ll still be able to take care of patients who are not there for a vaccination, and not get behind in the appointments. After all, why would people bother making an appointment if they are going to end up waiting as though they were a walk-in?

We know not everyone who wants a flu shot will make an appointment. For walk-ins, you can still track patient information by logging their appointments when they come in for a flu shot. Then for future planning, you can use the reporting modules to check trends. Which days of the week or times of day were the busiest? How many people made an appointment versus walked in? You can even allocate employee time needed to process after-vaccine paperwork by knowing what percentage of people had health insurance and what percent paid out-of-pocket.

Planning is the name of the game. And, AppointmentPlus software does much more than just flu shot booking to help you plan. Its inventory management module can help you retain loyal customers and patients by having the vaccines and staff available to let them get in and out quickly. And if they have a fantastic customer service experience, they’ll happily let their friends know that it’s super easy, it’s (relatively) painless, and they get a cool cartoon SpongeBob bandage to boot.

Using AppointmentPlus software to schedule your flu shot appointments leads to more people who get vaccinated and fewer who develop a flu-related illness. How? More flu shot appointments + great customer service = a healthier community. And who doesn’t want that?

Send appointment reminder emails and texts

Research shows that appointment reminders can reduce no-shows by up to 50%. AppointmentPlus software has built-in functionality that allows you to automatically send an email or text as soon as an appointment is booked. They provide important details like date, time, and location, and even driving directions to make it as easy as possible for them to show up. You can even customize your emails to provide an attachment that will allow them to export their appointment into their Microsoft® Outlook®, Google, or Apple® iCal calendars.

Collect payment in advance

With AppointmentPlus scheduling software, you can process credit card payments online while the appointment is being booked. Not only does pre-payment encourage people to show up for an appointment they have already paid for, it increases efficiency by eliminating the payment step from the checkout process.

We all know it’s a good idea to get a flu shot each year. Even the CDC has put out a flyer called “No More Excuses” to help people understand that there is no real danger in getting a flu shot, and explains the benefits in great detail. But sometimes the only way people will get over the fear of the unknown is to actually make the appointment, go in, and get the shot. And they wonder what took them so long.
