Enhanced Features D4W

DVA - Update items with $0 Fee

For customers with DVA Online module, items with $0 fee (eg. D061, S061) will be updated to $1 after the upgrade, so users don't receive error when submitting the claim from D4W. 

See DVA Fee Schedule

Sterilisation: Change Default Field to Content Type

When 'Contents' dialog/list box is open (in Sterilisation tab > Autoclave Cycle dialog; or in Clinical Notes when Sterilisation radio button is selected), users need to enter the sterilisation package content associated with the Bar Code. Once this dialog box is open, the Contents type drop list will be in focus by default. Users can type in the first letter of the required Content Type, select the Type then click OK to complete entry. This will result in a faster workflow.


PDF Option added to Scan in Documents Manager

Scan documents into a patient's file via Document Manager > Capture from Scanner, PDF option has been added to the 'Save as' dropdown list.

CMS Message Updated at 'Duplicate Patient Records Merge'

When merging duplicate patient records via Patients tab > Patient menu > Duplicate Patient records merge, if CMS (Centaur Mediasuite) is installed, users will receive one message with only one option (OK), click OK and all CMS images will be copied to the designated patient's file. In previous build, 2 options were shown in this message (Yes and No), users may click No by mistake.


Optimise staff dropdowns for large Databases

For large databases - especially Multi-Location databases, in Appointment Book, when selecting Provider or Staff from relevant droplist (e.g. For Provider list or Appointed By list), the system will only fill the list of Providers/Staff according to the Logged on Location and Active Providers/Staff for this location. This will cut down the time spent on opening an appointment.

Optimised Speed

8 x faster >"Invoices + Receipts" Report one day/all providers 

200+% faster > Report "Items Performed on a Patient"
