The HealthEngine Recalls 'Preferences' page is where you can set your own personalised Recalls system settings. We have provided a break down of each
If you have multiple practices linked to your PMS, then you can specify which location that you wish to sync your Recalls with.
First Contact Timeframe
This setting determines how many days before a recall is due you would like it to appear in the ‘To Action’ tab. Our default setting is 14 days to give you plenty of time to contact the patient prior to the recall due date. However, you are able to increase or decrease this number as suits your practice.
Subsequent Contact Timeframe
This setting determines how many days after a contact attempt you would like a recall to return to the ‘To Action’ tab. You can set the number of preferred days for each contact type. Our defaults are 3 days later for SMS recalls, 10 days for letter recalls, and 2 days for phone call recalls. After a contact attempt has been made on a recall, it will be moved into the ‘All Synced Recalls’ tab until the number of days have passed according to your settings for each contact type.
Delayed SMS Send Time
This setting determines at what time of day SMS will be sent for Recalls where you have selected "Delay send until recall due".
Recall Sync Range
This setting determines which recalls appear in your ‘All Synced Recalls’ tab. By default, all recalls that are due within the next 45 days or within the last 45 days will be displayed in the ‘All Synced Recalls’ tab. Any recalls with a due date outside of this date range will NOT show up in the ‘All Synced Recalls’ tab.
