SOFTWARE CHANGES INCLUDED IN THIS UPDATE:

15 Mar 15  Software Changes

1.  BOARD & CARE CHART SPANNING TWO MONTHS
If a chart spans two months, both months can be printed on the form by
setting the Variant field on Misc Items, "11. Chart Date Start Month
('JAN')" to "M" (for 'multi-month').

2.  DRUG USAGE BY DATE RANGE - ADD UOM
Unit of Measure (UOM) has been added to the export file as the 21st
element.

3.  PRINTED LASER CLAIM FORMS - PATIENT ALLERGIES ADDED, REFILLS
- '41. Patient Allergies' has been added to Patient Items.
- On '8. Refills Authorized', setting the Variant option to 'P' will print:
     '1 Refill' if there is one refill or 'xx Refills' if there are 0 or
more than 1 refill where 'xx' is the number of refills authorized.

- Doctor Item, '9. Fax Phone #' will print ONLY the FAX phone # if the
Variant option is set to 'N'.  Otherwise, 'Fax-<phone number>' will print.

4.  ONLINE CLAIM GROUP CODE SUBSTITUTION
Now, if a Third Party profile's "Misc. Selection" field contains the text,
"Grp", the text in that profile's 'Grp Code' will be transmitted in the
NCPDP 'C1' Group Number' field.  
Using this method will alleviate the task of entering this group number in
each patient's group code.  

5.  NEW IVR PHONE SYSTEM - TalkRx
FSI now supports the 'TalkRx' IVR system.

6.  CALIFORNIA TAR FORMS - PROGRAMMABLE
TAR Form Type 'L' has been added to 'TAR Tracking'.  Press the '7' key to
select 'Prog. Laser Form'.  The Third Party Code must also use the 'Laser
Form' field which format should have been previously created using 'A.
Laser Programmable Forms' - Key strokes from main menu: 3 7 3 A.

FSI has included 'PDPARF' files that you may use/modify.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

3.  LIST OF PATIENTS WITH MULTIPLE SELECTED DRUGS PER DATE RANGE
It is now possible to get a list of patients that have been prescribed

FOR EXAMPLE:
You want to know all patients that have been prescribed at least 2 drugs in
the following 4 groups:
     Benzodiazapines
     HCPs
     Tramadol

Use the 'Patient Script Usage by Date Range' function.  (Key strokes from

     6510009510   Tramadol GPI group

-Set the single character '[ ]' to 'Y'.  If this field is set to 'N', this
list item will be ignored.  This allows you to enter up to 10 partial GPIs
and select only the ones you want to match.

-Set the new 'Matching [ ] Drug GPIs' to '2'.
-Set the date range and generate the report.

4.  PRINT DISPENSING DATE ON PDE SHEET (patient monograph)
The new Software Option - Page 12 - PDE Settings, 'Print Dispensing Date on

DISPENSING DATE instead of today's date on the sheet.  If NO script is
associated with the PDE, today's date will be printed.
