SOFTWARE CHANGES INCLUDED IN THIS UPDATE:

15 Jun 15  S/W Changes (132x42)

Many more programs have been updated to the larger (132x42) screen size.

1.  'NEW' HELP FUNCTION <ShF2>
The <ShF2> 'Help' function is now linked (predominately) to our website.
Try it out!

2.  DRUG LISTS - BY EXPIRY DATE - NON-NUMERIC
The ability to generate a list of drugs with non-numeric Default Exp. Dates
has been added.  (Key strokes from main menu: 3 3 3 N).

These non-numeric expiry dates are either date relative ('D'=days,
'M'=months, 'Y'=years) or have a special definition ('.' so that no date is
calculated, 'P' = 'See Pkg', 'B' = 'See Box', or 'T' = 'See Tube').

Selecting 'N. Expired Since MMDDYYCC' will display a single character
field ([ ]) to the right of the date input. To use this feature, leave the
date field <blank> and set this single charcter field to P B T . D M or Y.

3.  MULTI-SITE: SITE SPECIFIC ONLINE SWITCH CODE
For those multi-site systems that have different online switching
agreements than other sites, a SITE SPECIFIC ONLINE SWITCH CODE has been
added.

This field is directly to the right of 'all sites' Online Switch Code and
is not labeled (due to screen space limitations).

4.  MULTI-SITE: DRUG AVAILABILITY
This function (key strokes from main menu: 3 3 A) will check other sites by
NDC and GPI code.  Therefore, equivalent drugs will display.

5.  ONLINE CLAIM RESPONSE - SIMPLE SCREEN
The 'information intense' online claim response screen has been simplified
to display only critical information (patient copay, TP paid, drug cost, ).
Pressing the 'D' key will display the former 'D'etailed information.

Pressing the <ESC> key on a PAID response will cause the program to
continue.

6.  LOG OF SCRIPTS 'REPORT BUILDER' - COMPOUND FLAG
Drug Item, '18. Compound Flag' has been added to the log of scripts Report
Builder.  Either a 'Y' or 'N' will be printed/generated according to the
compound indicator of the drug.

7.  SOFTWARE OPTIONS - PAGE 11 - DRUG SEARCH DISPLAY
- For Multi-Site systems with a 'central fill' site, the new option, 'Alt.
Site Drug Stock to Disp' allows display of the Stock-On-Hand of that site.
- For Robots that use 'Cell' numbers: The new option, 'Display Drug Robot
Cell on Srch' is set to 'Y'.

8.  ZEBRA LABELS - FACTOR/POINTS CONVERSION
The 'Q. Offset/General Setup' can now convert from 'factor' (a Zebra size
parameter) and 'points' (72 points to the inch).  When the 'Use Points or
Factor' value is changed from 'F' to 'P' or 'P' to 'F', the operator will
see the prompt:
Size Factor to Points (Y,N)
OR
Points to Size Factor (Y,N)
Answer 'Y' (usually) unless the sizes stored in the label format are
ALREADY in the 'to' format.
