Enterprise-wide patient scheduling

  1. Our facility currently has an outpatient scheduling system in place, and we are moving toward implementing an inpatient system soon. Has anyone worked in facilities that utilize both, and if so, how does it impact various departments, such as Radiology? Some Radiology departments are high volume, and need to allow for emergency procedures, etc. How does the scheduling system work with limited resources, i.e. not enough rooms available for procedures, limited staff, equipment not working, etc.? Any info would be helpful. Thank you.
