1(d). Category: Services provided by the Clinic can be grouped into categories. This helps in Reporting.
For example, Laboratory can be saved as a category for Blood Urea Nitrogen. Other services can also be grouped under this category. So rather than seeing the billing for each service, you can view the total billing from Laboratory.

1(e). Description: You can provide a brief description of the service available at your Clinic. This will help with online appointment booking, as your Patients/Leads can read about the service.

1(f). Appointment Templates: Services can be color-coded and their duration specified. This can be done in 2 ways:

OPTION I. Enter the duration manually in minutes/hours. Then select a color and Save the Service.

To do that, click on Link the Service to an Appointment Template… and from the Search Appointment Template which opens on the right, select from the list of Appointment Templates. Duration and color have already been set in the Appointment Template and will be picked by the service from the template.

1(g). Set Auto Reminder: Auto Reminder sends Alerts, Promotions and Offers to the Client/Patient who has not come back to the Clinic for a period of time, to avail a particular service have taken it earlier. This time can be configured for each service individually.
For example, A reminder can be set for a Client at 6 months for Botox Top-up and 12 months for a water-based Collagen Filler. Similarly, you can have it set at 3 months for HbA1C and 12 months for annual health checkups for a Patient.

1(h). Select and Add Resource/Service Linked to this Service: When you are running a multi-specialty clinic, you may have Physicians of different specialties practicing together. However, each Physician may be offering a completely different set of services. In order to make scheduling easy for your front desk, your receptionist should only see those services that are relevant for the Physician the appointment is being made for. You achieve this by linking which staff can offer this service. Similarly, you can also set which resources can this service be offered in. Now when you book an appointment, the Services that can be put in that appointment are auto filtered by Clinicea based on the selected Staff and Resource in that appointment.
