June was an exciting month for us. On the 27th, Cliniko turned 10 years old! We’ve put together some highlights from our launch in 2011 through to now on a new timeline page. It’s been a fun trip down memory lane for us, and we hope you might find it interesting, too!
We plan to keep adding new milestones to the page as time goes on. For now, we’re especially proud to say we’ve donated a million dollars (AU) to charity, from your subscription payments. We couldn’t do any of this without you! You can read more about the charities we give to here on our charity page or in our latest blog post on the topic.
We weren’t too busy celebrating to add some improvements to Cliniko. Here’s everything we updated in Cliniko during June!
- You can now take deposits for online bookings!
- You can remove an email address when sending a letter.
- Invoice status is now included in the invoice items export.
- Multiple choice and checkbox questions on treatment note PDFs are now a little nicer to look at.
- The patients data export now includes all of a patient’s phone numbers.
- The appointments data export now includes more details about group appointments—specifically, how many patients attended, and how many cancelled.
- A couple of small changes were made to the wait list entries data export.
- Incorrect patient terminology was being used in the documents and printing settings. We’ve fixed that!
- There’s more consistency in how prices on invoices display.
- Online bookings for accounts in the Nuku’alofa time zone weren’t behaving. That’s fixed now!
- The Xero account code drop-down on product pages looked weird. It’s back to normal!
- There was too much space at the top of some patient form sections. That’s been resolved!
Starting your own practice? Dave James, a podiatrist and business coach in the UK, sat down with us and offered some helpful insight—in particular, which things you should avoid when getting started. Read the full post here.
We’re proud to say that Cliniko is now a carbon neutral company. We’ve long wanted to offset our carbon emissions, so this year we worked with Carbon Neutral Australia to measure our carbon footprint and help us find projects aimed at leaving the world a little better than before. Learn more about how we calculated our footprint and how we’re offsetting it.
