Patient Portal update:
We are working on significant updates to the entire patient booking functionality of Practice Perfect. Beyond just additional flexbility to the current booking function, NEW patients will also be able to register, complete intake information and book appointments online. This will be happening over the course of the next few months.
Many new fields are being added within Practice Perfect to help customize this experience. You will see several of these changes within this update, even though they are not yet active - they will all be outlined and explained when the changes are completed - and can be ignored in the interim. Thank you.
Treatment Plan tab
The Treatment Plan tab will now indicate, in red print, where clients have exceeded coverage on each specific line.
Any occurence of lengthy Goal Descriptions being truncated have been corrected.
When deleting a custom-entered note in the Blue Header section, the user will now be asked to confirm the deletion.
Outbound Email Settings:
The password length for setting up outbound Appointment and Invoice emails has been increased to 60 characters.
A Start Date field has been added to each Provider's record for reference purposes.
A bug existed within the emailing appointment notification function in which a 'bad' email address would stop the process preventing other emails from being sent. This has been corrected - and the printed report now shows which email addresses were problematic.
Depending upon the Scheduler settings and setup, sometimes it was not possible to move forward in the scheduler to the following week advancing one day at-a-time. This has been corrected.
Scheduled Provider setup:
The toolbar in the Days-of-the-Week section of each Provider's setup has been removed, it was redundant.
Payor Activities by Invoice screen:
Unapplied Payments had accidentally been removed from this screen - this has been corrected.
If two appointments had different Fee Codes attached, only the first charge would be automatically levied when the patient Completed/Arrived. This has been corrected and both charges will now be added.
If a Service was entered with a Visit Count and then that service was reversed using a negative visit count and then a replacement service entered - that replacement service's Visit Count was set to 0 by default, and should be 1 - this has been corrected.
(Canada-only) Show Health Number
The option to Show Health Number has been added to the Generic Multiple Clients Payor Invoice style.
An error would sometimes occur when deleting Transfers of services, this has been corrected.
An error that produced an incorrect Balance Forward when the Exclude fully-paid items option is selected has been corrected.
(US Only) Client Profile sheet:
Physician NPI #'s were formatted incorrectly on this report, this has been corrected.
A 'singleton error' would sometimes appear when printing this report using Predictive values, this has been corrected.
Unbilled Services report:
A separate column containing the each line's service Duration has been added to this report.
Provider Performance Summary:
A new Provider Type filter has been added to this report.
Daily Progress Notes:
If nothing is selected in the Include Services drop-down, the Print and Preview buttons were disabled. This has been corrected.
Payment Application report:
A bug that did not split taxes to for a credited payment has been corrected.
Daily Note entry:
When selecting to bring forward notes from a specific, previous date, the formatting may have become lost - this has been corrected.
Daily Note entry:
Bringing notes forward either from the last date automatically or by selecting a specific date will now respect the Self-only setting on Progress Note viewing. In other words, if a note from a previous day could not be viewed due to security settings in Activites by Progress Note, then it will no longer be available for bring-forward either preventing notes from being viewed inappropriately.
Daily Note style:
A new style for printing Daily Notes has been introduced. Please note that there are still additional changes and fixes forthcoming to this report. Instead of printing a Progress Note, the user can now opt to produce the report in a different format entitled the Treatment Note, which is more goal-oriented. This format can be selected under Settings, Customize Progress Notes/Documentation in the Daily Note report style field.
Wired Client integration:
EDI837 Invoice Style:
This update includes the new Telus POS V6.3 drivers effective June 23rd, 2019.
The client's Injury Date has been added to this invoice style, for reference.
