General & Setup

Scheduler Colors:

The color settings for default items such as Default Unavailable Time, Default Group Time, etc, were not being retained - this has been corrected.

 

General & Setup

Scheduler Time Labels:

The Show time label every field is now locked and cannot be edited once appointments have been added into this system - eg; appointments are booked on 10 mintue intervals and then this field was changed to 15 minutes - what happens to pre-existing appointments? They no longer fit the interval. If this interval requires alteration, please contact our support department.

Scheduler

Emailing Appointments:

When using the Email Appointment Notification function, the option now exists to Include appointments already emailed. Selecting this option will also send an appointment reminder to those clients who have already received an email reminder for that specific date previously.

Reporting

NEW Accounts Receivable Lag report:

This new report, printed in a grid-style, reports on Cashflow - eg; how long does it take for services, on average, to be paid.

Reporting

Payment Application Report:

This report now has an export function in which key columns are saved, with the raw data, into a CSV/Excel format.

Reporting

Unpaid Services Report:

This report will now also included $0.00 services that remain 'unpaid' (even though they are $0.00).

Clinical Documentation/EMR

Activities by Document listing:

A new Provider drop-down has been added to this listing allowing the user to a) select to show only documents for a specific provider and b) select a provider when adding a new document, if one does not already exist for this client.

Clinical Documentation/EMR

Unlocking Daily Notes:

A Daily Note is locked if more than user is editing that exact note at that the same time. If a user exits a note improperly (eg; not properly exiting out), that note could remain locked incorrectly.

Notes can now be forcibly unlocked by using the new Unlock icon which is only displayed when that note is open and locked. Note that this should be used with care.

A new permission setting has been added for this function under Functions, Force unlock progress notes.

Clinical Documentation/EMR

'Quick' Charge Entry:

There was an error in the New Treatment entry panel used from both the Daily Notes and Documents that did not permit the same Fee Code to be used twice in one day - this has been corrected both on the desktop and web versions.

General & Setup

MIPS/Patient 360 Integration:

Further changes have been made to this integration correcting some previous issues in which the incorrect CPT Code may have been sent along with the G-Code.

Canadian Billing Specific

Telus Health integration:

Updates for Telus integration POS v7.2, effective December 1st, 2019, have been included on this update.

Patient Portal

Discharged Clients:

The patient self-booking portal was 'hanging' if patients did not have any active Incidents and had been fully-discharged. These patients will now be provided with a message instructing them to contact the clinic instead to be re-activated.
