Comparing the great booking systems Cliniko and EasyPractice
See why users choose EasyPractice as their booking system with our excellent support team to help you every day of the week.
Cliniko is a booking system for practitioners which is great for video consultations in the ever digitalising world of telehealth! With an integration with MailChimp, you can update your clients through newsletters by taking your email list directly from your client list in your account and Cliniko also has a great place for keeping health records for your clients. It is important to use a system like this to keep track of appointments, clients and automatic online billing all in one place.
Why use EasyPractice instead?
The short version is that, while both systems are excellent choices, EasyPractice is a better choice if importing client notes and real-time calendar updates are important to your practice.
At EasyPractice, we really value your relationship with your clients and we know it is important that while you and your practice become more digital, you keep a personal relationship so your clients know you are still there for them.
EasyPractice provides you with a platform to strike the perfect balance between automation and personalisation. We reviewed Cliniko and put together this comparison to highlight the similarities and key differences between Cliniko and EasyPractice to help you make an informed decision.

Automation to help your clinic digitalise
With our Video Meetings app you can switch your appointments to online meetings with the click of a button. Ease of use is what ensures both safety and quality.
EasyPractice's integration with MailChimp is great for sending newsletters to all of your clients at once. There's no need to email your clients individually when you can send group newsletters with MailChimp and save yourself time.
Journals from Other Systems Can Be Imported
It is critical to be able to take your data with you when switching to a new system. Having access to historical data means you won't have to start from scratch, resulting in less disruption to your business. Although Cliniko allows you to import clients, products, and services from a variety of systems, client notes are not supported. As a result, your client history is lost.
You can import your client data and notes into EasyPractice. Our in-house import specialists will handle your data transition for free! Switching to EasyPractice could not be easier.
Advanced Waiting List Feature
Cancellations can be stressful, especially when they involve a financial loss. With the Waiting List function, EasyPractice lessens the impact of cancellations. You can send out an invitation for an appointment to a client on a waiting list based on criteria such as current wait time, availability, and preferred clinician, the client’s new appointment is automatically entered into your calendar when the client has accepted the invitation.
This means you can fill empty spots quickly and have happier customers. Cliniko has a waitlist function as well, but unlike EasyPractice, you cannot send an invitation directly to clients who are waiting.
Create and use webhooks to get real-time updates
A webhook is a clear and simple API that allows for one-way data transfer in response to events. They allow apps to share data and functionality, transforming the web into something larger than its individual elements. APIs and webhooks are both techniques for synchronizing and sharing data between software systems.
With EasyPractice, you'll be able to establish a webhook and select the events it should include. The following options allow you to create webhooks:
When one of those events is included in a webhook you've established, an API request will be sent to the URL you selected during the webhook creation process whenever that event occurs throughout the system. Now, the URL is sent with event-related information, like when a booking was made. With Cliniko you have to check if there are any new updates manually.
Stay on top of all of your clients
Our Journals app is a great place to keep patient records and appointment notes. You can create your own templates according to how you work as well as upload images and files. With a record for each client, you always know what you need for each and every session.
Note everything important each time, and in the future, you can go back to see your client's history. Having a booking system online will help you have all your notes and journal entries in one place. It is easy to search for them and to group them together.
Cliniko offers some integrations too! You should make sure you are using the right system for you with the most relevant integrations and apps.
