Update Notes for Dec 15, 2014

15 Dec 14 S/W Changes
P.O.S. SYSTEM

1. HEARTLAND ‘E3’ PINPAD – PROMPT FOR SWIPE FIRST
Previously, the Heartland ‘End-to-End Encrypted’ PIN pad would prompt the
user to VERIFY the $ amount before prompting for card entry.

Now, with the Register Option, ‘Prompt for C/D Before or After Swipe’ set
to ‘S’ (for swipe), the user will be prompted to swipe the card BEFORE any
other prompt.
PHARMACY SYSTEM

1. PATIENT SEARCH – RETURN TO LIST
Situation:
When searching for a patient, that may have many matches (such as
‘SMITH,JOHN’ or ‘JONES,MARY’, for example), AFTER choosing, it is noticed
that, for example, ‘4’ should have been chosen instead of ‘3’. However,
pressing the <F1> key returns to the ‘Enter the Patient Name’. It would be
convenient to re-display the patient list so the correct patient could be
selected.

A new Software Option, “Pat/Drg Search Return to List” has been added to
“Patient Functions” – Page 6. With this option set to ‘Y’, when searching
for a patient or drug, pressing the <F1> key will cause the previous
selection list to display, giving the the operator the chance to select the
correct patient.

This option also applies to drug search/selection.

2. OUTBOUND MESSAGING: ADD CRICKET AND STRATA NET
Carrier types for Cricket (national) and Strata Net (Eastern Utah) have
been added.
CR = Cricket
St = Strata Net

3. DRUG COMPOUND ‘X of X’ LABELING ON ZEBRA
This specialized type of compound label printing for IV bags is now
available for Zebra thermal printers. Please note that not all label
functions (such as Picture Frames) are available on thermal labels that are
on laser labels.

These four items have been added to Script Items:
39. XofX Label Numbering
40. XofX Label Dates (Print,Admin)
41. XofX Metric Qty Dispensed
42. XofX Dosage #s

4. LOG OF SCRIPTS – REPORT BUILDER
’14. Verifying Pharm’ has been added to Misc. Items.

5. SCRIPT SPECFIC DRUG SCHEDULE
A script may have a drug schedule assigned to it. This feature is to
address the problem of a script that was processed with a different drug
schedule than is currently stored with its associated drug record.

For Tramadol (and its equivalents), the schedule was changed on 18 August
in most states from a non-schedule (in Utah, C-V) to C-IV. For HCPs, from
C-III to C-II on 6 October.

In order for label re-prints to show the correct ‘N’ or ‘C’ script number
lead-in, this function was implemented.

To view or modify this script assigned schedule, use the ‘2. Edit Script’
function, then ‘1. Edit Main Script Record’. Press, 2 <Enter> (Drug
Prescribed).

Leaving the Drug field <blank> will not alter the prescribed drug if
Schedule is the only item changed. Any changes to schedule or prescribed
drug will log the current technician/pharmacist.

** BE CAREFUL WITH THIS FEATURE **

Thank you, and have a nice day.
