With the new scheduler and Free Form Templates, 1.3.0 represents a huge step forward in usability.

The new scheduler available in TORCH 1.3.0 uses the CMF calendar capability to provide each user with a private calendar. By publishing events and appointments they become visible across the group schedule. Multiple views assist in scheduling for maximum effectiveness. The link to a patient record is embedded in the appointment so the provider loads the patient record from the appointment listing, saving an additional search. See the TORCH User Guide for screen shots of the new appointments section.
