Client Incident info:
The Incident Physician's NPI # will now be shown next to the Physician's name on the Incident tab.
Client record (US only):
Now that ICD10 codes have been in place for several years, the ICD10 label is being removed from next the client's picture in the blue side bar, which was used to indicate those clients who had moved to ICD10.
Client Account Summary:
This summary screen now also contains the client's First Visit Date.
The Adobe forms integration button entitled Forms, which has not been maintained for several years, has been removed from the top-line menu.
Compensation Report security:
A new security option under Security, Reports/Labels/Forms.. has been added and is entitled Compensation Report (Provider version). If Compensation Report is disabled and this new option is enabled, then the user will only be able to view the Provider version of the Compensation Report.
You can now opt to show the Find Appointment results in reverse-date order by clicking on the icon in the Date column.
Auto-Charge upon Arrived/Completed:
Until now, only one charge-per-day would be charged upon the Arrived or Completed status being selected. Now, if two appointments contain different Fee Codes, each will be charged when Arrived or Completed is selected on that specific appointment cell.
Scheudler freezing bug:
A bug existed in the Scheduler if the user tried to visit a date prior to when a resource was available (eg; before a Provider started with the clinic) - this has been corrected.
Activity by Service bugs:
Activity by Service display issues:
Payor Activities by Payment:
When the current year is selected in the Year drop-down box, any future-dated payments will now also be included in the listing.

Family & IncidentPhysician credentials are now included on this report.
Other Contact Listing:
This report now includes both Home and Work Emails for each contact.
The Summary by Payment Description section of this report included Adjustment $ even if the user had opted to not show adjustments on the report - this has been corrected.
Client Attendance Report:
A new date filter has been added to this report entitled Show clients with any visit in the report date range which allows the report to only print for clients attendind between specific, typically upcoming, dates.
Both the Referring Company and Physician Name will now be included on this report.
This release includes several key changes to the new Client Statements, as follows:
Daily Notes / Client Signature:
A new icon, Client Signature exists on the Daily Note toolbar that allows for a client/parent to sign a Daily Note. The option to print this signature is also now included.
Daily Note Time Stamping:
For those users that Complete and then later Incomplete a daily note to make changes, internally Pracitce Perfect is now storing both the original signature date and most recent signature date. This information is not yet user-facing.
A long-awaited new option has been added to the setup of Customized Documents. A new column for each field entitled Carry Forward has been added. This will allow fields to automatically be carried-forward from document to document. In this new column, you can indicate one of the three following options for each field:
The ability to select a different Provider Type for Section 5 of this document instead of just automatically matching the Provider Type in Section 4 has been added to this document.
This new information will also appear on both the printed version of the OCF-18 as well as the electronic submission to HCAI.
OHIP/Ontario Ministry of Health:
The location of the submission files prepared for OHIP/MOH can now be specified under Settings, OHIP Invoice Settings, in the Invoice Save Location field.
The Appointment Note icon, on each appointment cell, can now be hovered-over to be read, similar to the Desktop version.
