P.O.S SYSTEM

1. IDAHO PRESCRIPTION PICKUP – COUNSELING: ACCEPT/DECLINE
The script pick up screen has been changed to display “Accept,Decline” instead
of “Y,N” per state rules. Therefore, the question, “Did the Patient Receive
Counseling?” will be answered ‘A’ (for accept) or ‘D’ (for decline).

 

2. UTAH PRESCRIPTION PICKUP – ISSUER: OTHER – ‘OT’
Previously, ‘Issuers’ were limited to 58 United States state/territory codes,
13 Cananda province/territory codes, and ‘CN’ (Canada national ID), ‘US’ (U.S.
national ID), and ‘MX’ (Mexico IDs).
Now, ‘OT’ (for all other IDs) has been added.

 

PHARMACY SYSTEM

1. AUTOREFILL – LIST BY ‘DAYS FROM TODAY’
In addition to listing scripts ‘due’ for refill by date range, the ability to
specify the number of days from ‘today’ has been added.

 

2. BOARD AND CARE PRINTOUTS – SCREEN DISPLAY CHANGES
FYI, variants have been moved to the right side of the display.

 

3. END-OF-DAY (EOD) REPORTS – ‘DAYS BACK OFFSET’
A ‘Days back Offset’ has been added so that EOD reports can be generated for a
specified number of days prior to ‘today’.

 

4. LASER LABELS – MINIMUM RE-ORDER POINT, BILLING PHONE ADDED
-‘Minimum Re-order Point’ (ROP) has been added to Drug Items, ’19. Drug
Stock-On-Hand/Location’ using VARIANT ‘R’.

-‘Billing Phone Number’ has been added to Pharmacy Items, ‘8. Pharmacy
Phone Number’ using VARIANT ‘B’. This field is extracted from the primary
billing third party’s, “Enter Billing Acct#” on the second <F5> miscellaneous
screen. The first character in this field MUST start with ‘(‘. Example: (801)
785-7720.

 

5. ‘REPORTS’ FUNCTION ADDED TO MAIN MENU
Main Menu selection ‘A. Reports’ has been added. This equivalent to key
strokes ‘3 2’.

 

6. MULTI-LINE PATIENT NOTES – SELECT ‘STARTING WITH’
Patient Reports, ‘6. Multi- Patient/Script Notes Printing’-‘3. Patient Notes
by Date Edited’ now has the feature to select notes ‘Starting with’ up to 6
characters (such as ‘DX:’, ‘PX:’, ‘DT:’, ‘HT:’, etc).

 

7. WHOLESALER ORDERING – MULTI-SITE – SITE SPECIFIC VINS
For multi-site systems where some sites may use a different SECONDARY
wholesaler, enhancements have been made whereby the VINs (Vendor
Identification Numbers, aka Wholesaler Codes) may be configured to use the
drug record’s “External ID #2” which is specific to the site. (The current
Primary/Secondary Wholesaler Codes are ‘common’ to all sites).

In ‘ORDERING CONFIGURATION’, (key stroke from main menu: 3 E 5), set the “Use
Site Wholesaler Item Numbers” to “E” (for ‘External ID’). The program will
then use the drug’s ‘External ID #2’ value as the wholesaler code. Ensure the
wholesaler codes are copied into this field. IF you have many codes, call FSI
SUPPORT and ask for assistance to run a program (‘cpw2ext2’, ENTRY Point 1)
that will copy Secondary Wholesale codes to the drug’s ‘External ID #2’.

 

8. PACKING LIST – ‘PRINT NAME’
In addition to the signature line, this program will now prompt to print a
‘Print Name ‘ line. If this ‘Print Name’ line is not wanted, <blank> the
default, ‘Y’ (or set to ‘N’, anything but ‘Y’) so this line will NOT print.

 

9. ZEBRA LABEL ITEM – PROVIDER #
Doctor Item, “20, Provider #”, has been added. Set the VARIANT field to the
desired ID (1-8) to print.

 

10. LOG-OF-SCRIPTS REPORT BUILDER – ADD WILLCALL BAG

permissions matrix.

warning.

ALWAYS use “MCELI” as the patient’s “E. Eligibility” profile.
