The University of Michigan Medical Center has a flexible computerized clinic scheduling system that handles approximately 750,000 visits per year at the main hospital and satellite locations. The system includes a wide variety of fully integrated functions, including appointment booking, multiple and series scheduling, wait and reschedule lists, routine reminder notices, routine requests for medical records and radiology reports, no-show follow-up, and managerial reporting at multiple levels of detail. The system is extremely flexible, and allows separate scheduling specifications for every physician and all other resources within the system. The system is available at any of the approximately 1,800 computer terminals throughout the Medical Center, and is regularly used at approximately 400 terminals.
