The intelligent practice
Spring 2020 Newsletter
I’d like to take a moment to thank you for such a great 2019 and to cover a couple of items that you can look forward to at AdvancedMD.
AdvancedMD has had a great run of new innovations these past years. These enhancements have increased the value of the product suite we call Rhythm, which serves our billing clients and independent practice clients and your patients.
We’ve been told the rate of change with our product enhancements and updates have been difficult to absorb. To that end, we’ll be focusing on stability, performance and quality as a baseline theme for this year. The most noticeable change will be in our overall release strategy. We’ll now be releasing major features (with rare exceptions) three times per year, however, we’ll continue to fix bugs and critical issues and micro enhancements along the way.
Our priority is to reduce the disruption of change, provide better user experiences and onboarding, and higher performance and quality to the AdvancedMD suite. We feel we can best meet the needs that have been communicated to us through this release schedule change. Additionally, you’ll know in advance what’s on the horizon and have time to prepare for those features. We’re excited about what the new year will bring to benefit our many great clients. We’ll soon be announcing new product features and adding new product features for specific specialties.
If you have any specific questions. Please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].

Top 2019 Innovations
Along with the many changes we faced in 2019, AdvancedMD introduced some incredible features to our application. We’d like to review the items released this year that can save your office the most time by replacing manual processes.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Provides an extra layer of security to help protect against unauthorized user access. This can be required for the entire office or only individual users.
Automatic Disbursal Unapplied Payments Rule
These rules take the manual work out of applying unapplied patient payments. The unapplied payments are automatically disbursed at night so your daily workflow will not be interrupted.
Automation Center – End of Day Close
Schedule the End of Day Close to run automatically, which includes running & saving the Deposit Slip & Day Sheet Final reports, Day Close, & Claims Submission.
Period Close Scheduling
No more coordinating period close at 3am. This new feature lets practices automatically schedule their financial periods to close on a specific date & time.
Custom Claim Inspector Rules Master File – Use Subscriber ID Format Criteria
Create custom claim inspector rules to stop claims based on specific criteria. These rules can be carrier or practice specific. This is a great way to prevent Medicare claims from going out unless the Subscriber ID has been updated from the subscriber’s SSN to the new Medicare card number (or Medicare Beneficiary Identifier, MBI).
Documents & Problems Cards
Manage content directly from these individual cards. You can now upload & scan from the Documents card & create new, edit & delete from within the Problems card.
Patient Chart Re-imagined
How do you want your Patient Chart to display? Create a customized workflow within the EHR patient card framework that works for you. Outbound Referral Card: This outbound referral card in the EHR now integrates with the Practice Management’s outbound referral tab. One more data point in the EHR that syncs directly with the PM application.
Enhanced EHR Charge Slip Creation
With just a single click, you can automatically create a charge slip when signing a patient note.
Upgraded EHR scanning module
We’ve upgraded the EHR application to leverage the same scanning module that is used within our Practice Management. AdvancedMD is working hard to bring a seamless experience between our PM & EHR applications.
