Scheduling reminder tasks using messages

May 16, 2022

You can set a recall task for yourself or your admin to follow up with a patient on a future date.

Create an internal message from the patient chart, then snooze the message until the date you want to follow up. Click the clock icon within the message and choose the Snooze Until date. The message will appear in the inbox on that date.
