When you log into Kareo, the Agenda provides an efficient interface to manage daily patient appointments, access high-priority tasks, and navigate to other sections in the system.
The Agenda displays patient appointments for the day and allows you to manage the entire appointment workflow — from check-in to checkout — including running insurance eligibility checks and collecting patient payments.
