ingredients that are used in the compound.

is to be found in the desired compound formula. A ‘>’ followed by <Enter>
will also cause selection by ingredient.
After the ingredient is selected, the operator can enter OPTIONAL Quantity

4. DRUG INVENTORY TRANSACTION REPORTS
Menu item ‘3. General Inventory Transaction Reports’ has two new
Print Ending/Accumulated Qty/Value
‘Y’ Yes or
Setting this selection to ‘Y’ will print quantity used within the specified
date range (‘accumulated’) and $ value (acquistion cost multiplied by
quantity). The current quantity and value (‘end’) will also be printed.

‘Y’ print any drugs not used regardless of $ value

5. PATIENT SEARCH BY DOB – ‘NEW’ %MMDDYY METHOD
The search by patient Date-Of-Birth using the ‘<LastName>!<mmddyy>’ format
is actually an alphabet search that is qualified by the DOB specified.
Therefore, if a ‘LastName’ or partial ‘LastName’ is not included the
program searches ALL PATIENTS, starting at ‘A’ and can require a long time.
Just by including the first character of the last name can improve the
speed by a factor of 20 or more.
IF it is impractical to specify even one character of the last name, a NEW
search type is available:
would give a list of all patients whose DOB is 15 February 1975. It will
not be in alphabetical order as is the ‘!mmddyy’ search method. Rather, it
will display the most recently added patients first. This will be a VERY
fast search by DOB. IF you desire an alphabet order, use the ‘!’ method
with a partial last name.
6. CHECK FOR UPDATES, ETC. LIMITED BETWEEN 10:00AM – 4:00PM
Check for updates (FSI, wholesaler, SureScript) and other ‘once-a-day’
functions is now limited between the hours of 10:00AM to 4:00PM. This is
done to reduce early morning calls to FSI about some notifications that
could have waited until normal business hours.
7. ‘NEW’ CMS 1500 PRINT FORM
Printed claim form ’39’ has been created for the (02-12) FORM 1500.
Also, a programable format, ‘cms1500x’ is included with this update.
Thank you, and have a nice day.
