SOFTWARE CHANGES INCLUDED IN THIS UPDATE:

15 Mar 18 software changes (ENHANCED 132x42) 


PHARMACY SYSTEM

1.  AUTO REFILL - CONFIGURATION - DON'T STOP ON DRUG NOTE
The auto refill system can be configured to not prompt the operator to verify
a drug note with the new configuration option, "Don't Stop on Drug Note" set
to "Y".


2.  BOARD AND CARE FORMS - DATE WRITTEN FORMAT 'MM/DD/YY' ADDED
The Script Date Written can be printed in 'MM/DD/YY' format by setting the
'Variant' field to '#'.


3.  CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE REPORTING - SELECT STATE
For multi-site users that report multiple states, the ability to select a
reporting state's profile has been added.  Press the <F4> key to prompt for a
state.


4.  SURESCRIPTS CONFIGURATION - ADD 'PRINT NDC ON HARDCOPY'
The drug NDC can be added to the 'hardcopy' if the new configuration option,
"Print NDC on Hardcopy" is set to "Y".


5.  PRINTED BILLING FORMAT - SUBHEADS/SUBTOTALS ADDED
The ability to add subheadings to a programmable laser printed form has been
added. This also requires the sort type to be set to 'B' (for billing code
sort).

- '4. Claim Block - Misc/Dollar/Price' - '30. Billing Header Text' will
include the billing code, subheading text for each sub group.

- 'D. Total Dollar/Price Items' - '20. Billing ID Text/Amt' will include the
billing code, subheading text, and locations to print the dollar amounts of
each billing code's subtotals.

These items were specfically added for MEDICARE PART 'B' billing.


6.  LASER LABELS - TEXT FILES
The ability to add 'a lot' of text to a laser label format has been added.  In
the past, numerous Text Items have been used to compose long sentences and
paragraphs on a label.  It was very tedious (at best).

Now, a text file can be created which can contain up to 1100 characters and
can print in a height and width defined area on the label. 'Text Items - Group
22 - Text File 3D' can be used to place such text.  A text file must be
specified by name.  This text file can be existing or can be created/modified
by pressing the <F2> key.  Knowledge of the Linux text editor, 'vi', is
required.

The entered 'File Name' is given a name extention of '.l2lp'. If files are
created by some other method, it is critical to add this '.l2lp' to the file
name.

The "Note (does not print):" field can be set to something that will identify/
aid in remembering what the text file contents are, such as, 'HIPAA PRIVACY'.


7.  COUPON 'THIRD PARTY' PROFILE - SECONDARY PAYER TYPE
A third party/insurance company profile that defines a COUPON can now have a
'Coupon Type' associated with it.  If this type is set to 'S' (secondary), it
cannot be selected as a primary payer (as is processed in the 'script
pathway').  'Charge Script to Third Party', however, would be permitted.


8.  REFILL RX PROCESSING - REFILLS REMAINING ADJUSTMENT
Now, when the pathway quantity is 2 (or more) times more than the designated
refill quantity, more than one refills remaining will be subtracted.

When such a dispensing is 'canceled', these multiple refills will be restored.


9.   PATIENT HISTORY - DISPENSING DATE ORDER
For those systems configured to list a patient's script history in most recent
date order, a 'canceled' dispensing will now restore the order to the previous
disping date.  Previously, a canceled dispensing would have no effect on the
order.


10. LOG OF SCRIPTS REPORT BUILDER - DAYS SUPPLY ENDS
Script item, "51. Days Supply Ends" has been added. It is calculated from the
dispensing date plus the day's supply value.
