What you will notice in the enhanced encrypted version?
Insured’s ID field
At the Front Desk screen, the field Insured's ID - which displayed the insured ID of the last policy consulted or updated - is replaced by the field SSN. It shows under the Patient Billing Form button if you use the Billing Service or under Ins.Pol.Grp field otherwise. You can enter up to 22 alpha-numeric characters in it. We suggest to use it for the patient’s social security number.
The information that was showing before is not lost as it is found in the Patient's Policy Info.
To allow the display of this new field, for clients using the Billing Service, the New Insurance Condition button is renamed New Case and it has been shrunk.
User’s personal identification number (PIN)
(Front Desk → Utilities → L) CONFIGURATION → PROF & USER) Your user personal identification number is now encrypted. Call the Solution center if you do not remember it,
SOAP Notes (reminder)
The SOAP Notes can be added only from a computer configured as an adjustment table regardless of whether or not the automatic billing is enabled. In addition, the patient must have swiped to the sign in computer or have been added manually to the arrivals list by the Front Desk staff. He can also swipe his card at the adjusting table.
However, a treatment can be added for a previous date from any computer. The Touch Pad button ENTER AS PREVIOUS TREATMENT must then be used at the very end.and edit me. It's easy.
