Your team's diary, online

Appointment confirmations, surveys or follow-up notifications, are easy to create or customise. You’re in complete control of the tone and nature of your automated communications - SMS and/or email.

Include dynamic variables such as 'first name' or 'business phone number' or link to a client's individualised consent form.

Reduce your administrative costs and time by giving clients the option to book appointments online, anytime, without losing control.

Set minimum and maximum booking times before an appointment, exclude some or all services from online booking, or take booking requests instead of automatic confirmations.

Don't want clients to see your calendar is not busy? Bookem can be set up make you appear more busy than you actually are.

Let clients book and pay online for instant confirmation upon payment. Useful for video calls/telehealth sessions.

Or invoice at any stage after a booking is made and let clients pay online directly from their invoices or online payment links; payments are reconciled automatically on Bookem as the payment is confirmed.

Clients can reply to automated messages such as SMS or email reminders or confirmations. You can again reply to these messages or just send ad hoc manual messages. This can be useful for last minute comm's before an appointment, such as a quick note to say that appointments are running 10 minutes late.

All outgoing and incoming messages are stored against a client's profile in their Messages tab.

Go paperless with Forms

Now all your data capturing can be done by clients. No more recapturing errors.

Rules can be set up to automatically send clients forms you need them to complete, such as intake forms or questionnaires after a particular kind of appointment. Forms are fully customisable, and are optimised for your client's device, whether it's mobile, tablet or desktop.

Forms consist of flexible field types, such as short or long text fields, multiple choice, checkboxes or images, such as body charts, for annotation. Signatures can be added as a compulsory field for clients to complete, and they do this using their finger (on mobile/tablets) or their mouse (desktop) before they are able to submit the forms.

Forms can be set up to automatically merge with their profiles upon submission.

This data is then available to be used in various ways, for e.g., auto completing invoices with medical aid details, for using in automated messaging, or for auto-completing other forms that need to get filled out by clients that have an overlap in questions that need answering.

Questions you ask clients when they book online can be customised for different services. Add diagrams or body charts for them to draw onto, such as 'Draw with your mouse or finger on the area where you recently had surgery.'

Invoicing and payments

Appointments can be invoiced and emailed/SMSed in as little as 5 clicks, directly from your calendar.

Bookem knows who is being invoiced and can also know why, so invoices get sensibly populated with information that takes unnecessary time or effort.

For effortless medical aid-compliant invoicing, quickly search through and add ICD-10, treatment/procedure codes, descriptions and pricing.

NAPPI, consumable, SKU, or other codes, descriptions and pricing can be loaded too.

Save time and eliminate costly mistakes by creating groups of multiple invoice line items (codes, descriptions and pricing) for inserting one or more of these groups into an invoice with a click.

For clients that get invoiced similarly every session, just choose to copy from any of their most recent invoices and make any changes that might be needed. Invoicing this way means you can create and email an invoice in 5 clicks, directly from the calendar.

Bookem allows for various manual payment methods (POS, cash, or EFT), as well as online credit card payments through online payment gateways such as Snapscan, Payfast, WigWag and/or Paypal.

Payments made with online payment gateways are reconciled automatically, e.g. a client pays their bill with Snapscan and it gets marked as paid automatically.

View account reports such as Age Analysis, Invoices issued or Payments recorded online. Download your time-based accounts data into pre-added filtered spreadsheets for truly flexible reporting.

With this option enabled, bookings are only confirmed when payment has been received. Online payments are linked to invoices and recorded automatically, which confirms the booking immediately afterwards.

Clinical notes

Store your clinical notes & files all in one place

Insert into your notes reusable templates, such as initial assessments, follow-up assessments, questionnaires, or any other form templates.

If you prefer, you can create templates with scans of your paper documents for annotating on digitally with your phone, tablet or desktop using your mouse, stylus/Apple Pencil or just with your finger.

Bookem provides some typical templates that you can customise, or you can create your own.

Type or write with an Apple Pencil to record information about your clients right from your calendar.

Upload and store files associated with your clients all in one place, such as:

- photos of them doing specific movements

- letters (scans, pdfs, etc.)

- x-rays or scans

- images

Load images, or take a photo while editing a note. Draw or write directly on your photo or image.

Useful for drawing on body charts, or making notes on scans of paper forms.

Video calls

Use Bookem for an integrated video call platform with unlimited minutes included in your subscription.

Bookem's video call software is secure and easy to use for you or your clients. No software download required.

Automatic reminders to your clients include links to join their calls in a single click.

Book clients for video calls yourself, or let them book online.

If no-shows for video calls tend to get out of control, Bookem can require online payment from clients before their appointment is confirmed, even if other types of online appointments don't require up-front payment.

Prefer to use other platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, FaceTime or Microsoft Teams? No problem. Simply replace our video call link with a link from your favourite video call service, and we'll automatically direct your clients to their call on their automated email/SMS messages and reminders.

Even you can join calls using these platforms with one click directly from your Bookem calendar; in other words, without having to launch these external apps manually each time you have a call.
