PM/EHR Updates

Billing (PM)

Demand Statement

ePayments On Demand Update
In response to client feedback, the Statement Format option no longer displays if you select Online Only for the Statement Delivery on the  Demand Statement screen.

Note: This enhancement is for ePayments™. To purchase ePayments, contact Client Support Services.

Previous to this enhancement, the Statement Format option was grayed out when Online Only was selected for the Statement Delivery.

Click the Transaction Entry icon | Select a patient | Click Statement.

Charge Detail

Add Online Code to Statement History

We have added two additional codes to the Statement History on the Charge Detail screen to indicate when a charge is run with the Online Only option:

  • O-Dmd – Indicates when a statement is sent Online Only from the Demand Statement screen.
  • O-Stmt – Indicates when a statement is sent Online Only from the Patient Billing Wizard.

Go to Patient Demographics | Select a patient | Select the History tab | Click View Details or double-click a transaction.

 

Unbilled Claim Edits

You can now use 6 as the second digit of carrier payer IDs on professional claims for the RelayHealth clearinghouse.

The error now displays as The second digit of the Carrier CPID for professional claims cannot be 5 or 9.

Master Files (PM)

Renamed Time Zone

To clarify the time zone for practices, we have renamed the UTC-07: US Mountain Standard Time (MST) to UTC-07: Arizona (US MST) in the following master files:

Meaningful Use Dashboard (EHR)

We have removed the Meaningful Use Dashboard from EHR because it tracked meaningful use stage 2 measures which are no longer used.

Telemedicine (PM/EHR)

Telemedicine Time Zone Settings Changes

We have made the following enhancements to the Telemedicine Settings screen for AdvancedTelemedicine®.

  • Renamed the UTC-7: US Mountain Standard Time (MST) to UTC-7: Arizona (US MST) to clarify the time zone for practices in the Arizona area with no daylight savings.
  • Removed the Use daylight savings time check box. Daylight savings will now be automatically adjusted for selected time zones that adhere to daylight savings.
  • Added an additional time zone, UTC+10: West Pacific Standard Time (WPST).

Go to Modules | Telemedicine | Settings.

 

Patient Chart (EHR)

We have removed the Schedule column in the patient chart so the chart has more room to display.

Go to Patients search | select a patient.

User Preferences (EHR)

Notes – Default My Eyes Only

We have added a new Default My Eyes Only (Clinical Providers) user preference that controls the default value of the My Eyes Only check box on patient notes.

The default setting for this user preference is cleared.

Go to Tools | User Preferences | Note tab.

 

Video Training Library (PM)

The following video has been updated:

  • Provider Workflow
    Includes new Surescripts Record Locator and Exchange Service that pulls in available Continuity of Care Documents from other practices and displays them on the Documents patient card of the patient’s chart. This is a Feature Access and clients will need to contact Client Services to have it turned on.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
