It has only been a few months since our last feature release, but we have developed even more ways to save you time by streamlining your workflow. To achieve that we have made improvements across several areas of Rehab Guru including:
Watch a tutorial on these new features:
There have been two big changes in this release to make booking clients’ appointments easier.
Our first new appointment feature allows you to make bookings directly from your dashboard simply by clicking on the calendar. From here you can access all your usual booking parameters; select appointment type, see all the available appointments, choose your patient/client, select a time, and book the appointment.
We know that on occasions, clients require something different, which is why we have developed the custom appointment feature making it simple to create any kind of appointment that you like. You can override any rules that you have set, and you now have the flexibility to book any appointment at any time!
At Rehab Guru we work with some large organisations and support the delivery of healthcare at scale. The feedback from these clients led to the next new feature update, form sharing.
You can now share forms with other members of your team, enabling all team members across your organisation to work from the same templates, this supports consistency, information gathering and generation of data-led insights.
We are also excited to offer you static forms using a single URL that can be used again and again, for any of your forms. This gives you a huge amount of adaptability with how you use your forms. For instance, you could publish a form on your patient information leaflets using a QR code or more simply the copied URL, or you can send out the custom URL link via email as part of onboarding process. In fact, there are so many uses of this new forms feature that we might just do a whole blog post about it (so keep an eye on our social media for that!).
Obtaining a URL for any one of your existing forms is straightforward. Simply press on the ‘Copy static URL button’, this then copies the URL to your clipboard which in turn can then be pasted into any new browser tab. Check out our example here!
We have made collating the responses simple too - all responses will be collated in the unassigned responses page, where you can then manually assign them to patients. However, if you want to go one-step further to streamline this assignment process, we have added an additional field to the forms page; you can now select ‘email’ from the question type drop down list. This prompts the user to add their email address; this helps Rehab Guru to automatically identify who that email response belongs to and allocate to that user.
We have partnered with some amazing software companies around the world, including Cliniko, Nookal, Smartabase and Hubspot. This gives you the choice, and flexibility, that you need to do your day-to-day work as well as giving you access to a broader array of features.
One of the key updates we have created in 5.1 is to improve these integrations, making it much easier to seamlessly switch between the platforms that you use, simply by clicking a button.
The primary difference that you will notice is that we have developed a direct link to your patient record via a button on the top right of the patient details page. Clicking on this takes you directly to the patient record on the connected integration, saving you time and creating a seamless transition.
Rehab Guru customers generate tens of thousands of PDFs every month, so we know that they are a very popular way of assigning exercises. This is why in this new release, we have given you a number of new templates to use, as well as giving you a high-resolution option.
So what’s new? You can now choose from 4, 6 or 8 exercises per page, enabling you to create the layout you prefer. Additionally, you can select to show images only, or a training diary or the full programme. This gives you the flexibility to present clients’ programmes dependent on the setting you are in as well as responding to their needs or preferences.
We have also made changes to the way we generate PDFs giving you more options. If there is a new template that you would like, please reach out to us on social media or via email so that we can create that template and make it available to you.
We continually strive to grow and evolve Rehab Guru into a platform that meets your therapy practice needs, and we hope to exceed your expectations. All of the latest features are due to your valuable feedback so please let us know what you think either on social media or by emailing us here or, of course, via our newly created custom URL!
