Editors' review

A good appointment system is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle when it comes to keeping a busy medical practice running smoothly. Medical Calendar is a basic program that lets users keep track of appointments for multiple providers within a practice. It's not the most sophisticated or full-featured program we've seen, but it does work well for what it is.

The program's interface is attractive and fairly easy to navigate. We liked that users could enter multiple medical providers and choose from a variety of avatars, making them easy to identify at a glance. It's also easy to enter new patients, although we thought that the patient info field was lacking; all patient information, including address, date of birth, and insurance information, goes into one big text field, which could easily become disorganized. The program does provide multiple types of calendar views, including daily, weekly, and monthly views, and separate calendars for each provider make it easy to keep everything straight. We think the biggest drawback to Medical Calendar when compared with other medical scheduling software is that it provides absolutely no integration with other medical record-keeping applications; there is no way to get information from Medical Calendar into a patient's chart, look up prescription information, or check account balances. This may not be a problem for small practices where most record-keeping tasks are done manually, but users looking for info sharing or automation will want to look elsewhere.

Medical Calendar installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Medical Calendar 4.5. The trial version is limited to 14 days.

    "Couldn't get it to work"

    September 20, 2009   |   By cyberdave03

    Version: Medical Calendar 4.0

    Pros

    It looked promising. The interface was clear and it had multiple features, including search.

    Cons

    After I installed and ran it for the first time, on subsequent uses it kept giving me a database error and erasing all my entries (WinXP sp2), despite uninstalling it and reinstalling after downloading from different sources.

    Summary

    Based on my experience I can't recommend it , though if you can get it to work, it looks like good software.
