Configure SAM Scheduling in Partner
If your practice uses the text-based Partner SAM program, you can use the Table Editor (ted), Provider Profile Machine (profile), and Provider’s Work Calendar (scrod), along with blocking programs to make the PCC scheduler meet your scheduling needs.
For information on Configuring the PCC EHR Appointment book, read Configure the Appointment Book.
If you use the Partner SAM scheduling system, you can use the
scrodprogram to indicate when providers have hours.
scrodis a calendar on which you schedule when a provider works their regular hours, other profile, "strange hours," or is off.
Partner's scheduler can manage the diverse and complicated scheduling needs of dozens of clinicians.
Most medical offices schedule appointments weeks or months in advance. As a result, providers may be booked solid for weeks ahead of time. While keeping providers busy is vital, it is important to leave some time available in a provider's day.
Partner contains a list of providers, visit reasons, and time profiles that the scheduler uses when making appointments. An important step to scheduling configuration is making sure that each of these lists has the correct items.
If your practice uses Partner's SAM scheduler, use the Provider Profile Machine (
profile) to set the work hours for each provider.
The Configuration Editor (
ced) contains sets of questions that control how Partner programs function.
