What’s New in the EMR? Part Two.

Messages Inbox Now Includes Automatic Routing
When there’s no doubt when a message goes with a certain patient, will automatically put the message where it goes – in the correct patient’s chart. So if there are no duplicate email or phone numbers found, the app will be its proactive self by helping you out with the details. But don’t worry, these automatically routed messages can be easily reviewed, deleted or even re-assigned to different patients through your regular Messages Inbox. You’ll see a little note alerting you any time a message has been automatically routed.

Sending Emails Directly from
You’ve always been able to hook up your inbox to your external email client and send emails through, but now you have the option to skip the external part if you’d like. As long as you have Amazon email service enabled and verified, you can send emails to patients straight from the sidebar of The message will still end up in the patient’s record, detouring around the inbox.

Better Billing Breakdown
You’ve always been able to view detailed reports from your billing tab. WIth the latest round of updates, we break it down even further by showing you earnings per doctor. Get a refresher on all your reporting management options here.

Enhanced Search Function now indexes patients’ phone numbers during search queries. This is extremely helpful in figuring out who just called you!

Enhanced Payment Options: Pay for a Specific Item
Now, when you’re adding payment for a patient, you can be even more specific about what the payment should go towards by clicking on “Pay for a specific item.” The resulting drop down will let you choose from the latest charges applied to the patient’s chart – including the payment amount needed. Now when your patient opts to pay for a service they just received at the clinic, you can get it done and over with right then without having to remember to finish the paperwork later…

Received Payments More Often
When a credit card is processed, the payments are available for transfer seven days later. With the latest updates to payment code, there will never be more than three days between payouts, which means your clinic puts money in the bank more often. The payout dates are 1, 3, 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, 23, 26, 28.
