Appointment

Overview

The Appointment resource provides the ability to retrieve information about appointments, write new appointments, and update the status of existing appointments.

Date is required when searching by patient, practitioner, or location.

When integrating your application with a client’s production environment you will work with the client to determine the Practitioner and Location ids (Millennium personnel and location codes, respectively) which they want to make available to third-party applications for enabling scheduling functionality.

The status of arrived does not change the state of the millennium appointment but instead updates the patient tracking status to a value of Arrived.

R4 exposes a native checked-in status which allows for an appointment to transition from the booked state to the checked-in state. This is a change from the DSTU2 value mapping.

When updating an appointment, the resource provides the ability to change the Appointment.status in the following sequences:

Video Visit functionality requires additional licensing, configuration and application support.

The following fields are returned if valued:
