What’s New in Company Branch Locations.

Good news – we’ve got another update! This latest one was designed with big clinics with practices in multiple locations in mind.

Usually, all of the companies under an account share the account’s primary location, which means that billing for those companies is assigned to that location too.

But with Company Branch Locations, you can designate a new branch location for different companies under one account.

Once you change the branch location for a company, any new charges or payments by the company will belong to the selected branch location. Any items billed before this change will remain unaltered and still belong to the main company branch.

This feature allows for more precise tracking and control of revenue and payments across different companies and branch locations. Now, when you pull reports such as the Payments Report, the Charges per Location report, and the Billing History Report, any costs and revenue will be clearly organized according to the branch location that processed them.

This also makes it much easier to reconcile payouts and assign billing to different bank accounts and companies based on their location.

If you have any questions about company branch locations, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at

What’s New in Save Draft Function, Custom Form Notes, and Macros for Lab Data.

In this next round of updates, we’ve turned our attention to improving the custom notes function that many of our users use to document patient well-being and provide updates to other medical professionals.

Save draft function

For added peace of mind when writing notes, we’ve introduced a way of actively saving anything you’ve already written. While notes already have an autosave feature, the ability to actively save drafts means you can decide when exactly you want to save your drafts, giving you control over when you want to save your work, and allowing you to come back to unfinished notes. Pending drafts will be visible in the header of your patients’ charts, so you can easily find any notes you were working on.

Custom form notes

When emailing forms to your patients, you may want to go into specific details about the form, particular conditions, or any other instructions. With custom form notes you can easily add a short, customized note that will accompany the email to your patient with the link to the form. The custom note has macros integration so you can automate commonly-used instructions or observations.

Macros for lab data

In order to provide easier ways to reference data points from imported lab results, we’ve now integrated’s macro autocompleter. This means you can now use the macro shortcuts #trend and #result to pull up the latest results for your patients. 

For example, if you want to reference the latest lab result concerning Triglycerides, you can type “#resulttrig” and will search for all matching data points.

This streamlines the process of attaching lab results to patient charts, as well as emailing report notes to patients and other doctors.

And that’s it! We’re really excited and confident that these notes will make your job that much easier. If you have any questions about how any of these updates work, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at

What’s New in Custom Appointment Notes, More Appointment Recurrence Options, and Emergency Contact Categorization.

Summer is finally here, and along with the sunshine we have a number of feature updates to share. We’ve focused the lion’s share of our efforts on improving features related to appointments, and we’re confident that these updates will make scheduling consultations that much more efficient.

Custom appointment notes

When creating appointments or notifying patients you may want to go into a little more detail about what the patient can expect from the appointment. With custom appointment notes you can now easily add a short customized note so that your patients are better informed about any upcoming consultations. These notes also work with macros integration, a powerful tool that allows you to create templates for your most-used appointment notes.

New appointment recurrence options

We’ve also extended the number of available recurrence options for appointments. Before, appointments could only recur on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. Now, we’ve added 14-, 21-, and 28-day recurrences to repeating appointments for greater flexibility when scheduling consultations.

Emergency contact categorization

In an emergency, it’s important to have as much information as possible. With that in mind, we wanted to make it easy to classify the relationship between a patient and their emergency contact(s). With emergency contact categorization, you can now easily specify this relationship in your patient’s chart.

That’s it for now. We have some more updates coming very soon, but in the meantime, we hope these features improve your experience. If you have any questions about any of the updates, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at

How the DPC Model is Changing Dentistry

It’s no secret that the DPC movement has made huge strides in its goals of forever changing American healthcare. Healthcare services that would have put patients out of pocket thousands of dollars – and that’s even before taking into consideration hefty insurance premiums and copays – are now obtainable for less than $100 per month. 

This revolution in direct care – and revolution is the correct word here – has been nothing short of astonishing – and now it’s spreading to other forms of previously inaccessible healthcare too.

The problem with dental

Dentistry has long been a major, often prohibitive, expense for many people in the US. The prices even for basic checkups are out of reach for so many Americans. Many put off going to the dentist for months or even years, often until they’re in so much pain from an existing problem that they make compromises in other areas of their life to afford an appointment.

Let’s take a look at the cost of average dental treatments in the US:

  • Cleaning, check-up and x-rays – $200-$400
  • Implant and crown – $3000-$6000
  • Root canal – $700-$1300
  • Whitening – $300-$500
  • Bridge – $2000-$6000

These prices are without insurance, but even with insurance, the out-of-pocket contribution that patients have to pay is astronomical. Since traditional dental insurance caps at an annual maximum of between $1,000 to $2,000, plus copayments for all major services, patients will almost always be facing lofty bills.

This is bad for patients, but it’s bad for dentists too, as it discourages patients from booking appointments until absolutely necessary, ultimately resulting in fewer visits.

Direct Care for dentists

Because of the costs involved in dental care, and the disadvantages it presents for both patients and healthcare practitioners, many are starting to see how the benefits of Direct Care and in-office patient membership plans can be applied to the industry.

Like DCP clinics, they offer a number of plans for individuals, small businesses, and larger organizations. 

Membership fees start at $20/month, including up to two oral exams, teeth cleaning and x-rays, as well as a 30%-45% discount on other procedures such as crowns, fillings, implants, etc.

For dentists, this opens access to a whole new panel of patients, those who previously had no dental insurance, such as retirees or the self-employed. It also offers a chance to build loyalty with patients of all ages and, more importantly, retain those patients for years to come.

The DPC model is the future of healthcare

As more healthcare professionals realize the benefits that the Direct Care model affords their businesses and patients, it’s likely that in addition to primary care and dentistry, other fields such as psychiatry and psychotherapy could adopt similar models. 

The secret lies in not only spreading the word about the inherent advantages of the DPC model but by letting the increased savings and quality healthcare that patients receive speak for themselves.

What’s New in Import LabCorp Results.

Last year we released the Import Lab Results feature that made it possible to move test results from labs directly into as discrete data. The feature allowed you to view test results as tabular data instead of just a static PDF, but it only worked with lab results from Quest Diagnostics.

Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve extended the capabilities of the feature to work with results from LabCorp. This means you can now effortlessly import lab results into from two of the country’s largest labs providers.

For a more detailed explanation of how the feature works, please check out our help article on the subject, and if you’re unsure about how to request labs, you can find out more here

What’s New in Self-Scheduling.

Scheduling patient appointments is a time-consuming affair, often requiring nurses, secretaries, or other administrative staff to coordinate and manage. Our newest feature, self-scheduling, gives you the option to allow patients to schedule their own appointments ahead of time, drastically reducing the administrative burden required to schedule consultations.

Self-scheduling doesn’t have to replace your preferred booking process. You can still schedule appointments as you normally would while also providing patients with the possibility to book their own consultations. will automatically make sure that there are no schedule conflicts so that you can spend more time worrying about what matters most – providing quality care.

The rollout of self-scheduling doesn’t mean that you’re going to be suddenly swamped with appointments without your knowledge. Users have full control over whether they want to enable self-scheduling, how far in advance they would like bookings, the length of appointments, and how many daily time slots they want to open up. This isn’t limited to doctors either; any user, including administrative staff and nurses, can enable self-scheduling so that patients can book procedures such as labs, tests, or vaccinations directly with the relevant member of staff.

We’re constantly working on ways to give users more options to manage their clinics in a way that makes sense to them, and self-scheduling is another tool to do that while enabling even more flexibility and customization.

What’s New in Drug Allergy Search Engine Improvements

Prescribing the correct medication can sometimes be a tricky business, especially if a patient suffers from one or more allergies.

What’s New in Multi-Day Events and Duplicating Forms.

While it’s been getting a bit colder, we’ve been huddled up inside hard at work on a few features that will improve your experience and make running your DPC clinic even more efficient – and we’re excited to announce a few of them today.

Multi-Day Events

Everyone needs a break from time to time, but sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of everyone’s days off. Multi-day events lets you schedule and track your and your team members’ extended time off on your calendar. This feature is great for booking vacations and any out-of-office days, and also lets you manage any schedule conflicts that might pop up. 

Duplicating Forms

We know that creating forms from scratch over and over can be a bit of a drag, so we developed a way of duplicating entire forms with one click. Now you can simply tweak and copy a master template as many times as you need, freeing up more time to spend with your patients or for other important clinic duties. 

We hope these features enhance your experience, and we’d love to hear any feedback or suggestions you might have. Just drop us a line at
