Simplify EHR scheduling with multi-calendar sync

Written by


Osmind practices can now easily sync appointments and events between a clinician’s Google Calendar and the Osmind EHR, directly from the Schedule tab within Osmind.

This allows clinicians and practice leads to better manage and review multiple calendars with the overall practice schedule, all in one place. In short, you’ll be able to see each clinician’s work calendar and availability within Osmind and Google Calendars.

With this connection to Google Calendar, clinicians can:

  • Sync multiple calendars with your Osmind EHR. You can add additional Google accounts and associated calendars from the ‘Sign in with Google’ button. From the ‘Sign in with Google’ button, simply follow the prompts to link your Google account(s) with your Osmind calendar.
  • Appointments made in your Google Calendar will also show up in Osmind. Simply edit the settings that display your Osmind appointments, and add your Google Calendar appointments. You have flexibility to assign clinician names or descriptions to different Google Calendars (the default is the email and profile name in Google for each clinician).
  • Have control over the appointments that show up on your Google Calendar. The only Osmind appointments that show up in your Google Calendar are those that list you as the ‘provider’ or ‘clinician’ in appointments scheduled within your Osmind EHR.
  • Keep patient information secure in line with HIPAA requirements. You won’t see detailed treatment information or PHI on your Google Calendar when it’s connected to your Osmind schedule. Instead, your Google Calendar will only display ‘Osmind Appointment’ in your Google Calendar, to protect against HIPAA violations. Note: you will not be able to edit appointments made in Osmind from your Google Calendar.

All Osmind appointments will be listed under a new calendar titled 'Osmind - Provider Name.' This can be seen under the 'My Calendars' section on the left side of the calendar on Google.
