Arrivals Kiosk

Arrival Kiosk

Patients can announce their arrival by using this kiosk instead of approaching reception.

They will be prompted to touch the screen to start the process.

They will be invited to enter their name or date of birth using the touchscreen keyboard. 

The kiosk will search the appointment book within a set time frame for them. If found they will be invited to take a seat in the waiting room. The appointment book will show them as arrived (green background colour).

If not found or they trigger an alert for outstanding accounts, they will be asked to see the receptionist.

Set Up

The Arrival Kiosk is installed on a touch screen computerand placed in the waiting area, ideally where the reception staff can also keep an eye on it.

Remove the keyboard and mouse once started.

Please contact our helpdesk for advice on the touchscreen to purchase. They will complete installation of the kiosk software once this is connected to your network.

The Practice may choose it’s own welcome screen.
