UAppoint, New Orleans, was recently assigned US patent #7174303 for its “Customer Driven Sponsor Controlled Network-Based Graphical Scheduling System and Method.”

UAppoint’s online scheduling service is done securely and in compliance with HIPAA regulations. When a staff member enters a new appointment in the practice-management software scheduler, an appointment card is automatically e-mailed to the patient. This e-mail gives the patient a written record of the appointment. There are no double entries, and no training is necessary.

Patients can see online what appointments are available, and can request an appointment. But the office controls which appointments are shown to the patient, and can accept or deny the appointment request.
