See Versions

Released on 3/30/2008.

Account module: Complete overhaul of the columns. Moved to a simpler 3-column layout. Extra line detail is now visible as part of the description of the item rather than as a separate column. This will allow compatibility with electronic billing software later. It makes the math more obvious, more like a check register. Account module.

Payment Plans: Separated payment plans out from the regular account grid into their own grid. Made them more intuitive rather than the old confusing calculation method. Payment plan payments no longer show in the main grid. Payment plan report. Payment Plan.

Tasks: Can delete task from inside. Task list docking can be set on a per-computer basis. Tasks visible in Chart module. Added a "viewed" status to make it much faster to identify new tasks. Checkbox is now three-state. Added user field so we can see who created the task. Added DateFinished field. Finished tasks are hidden by default but can be viewed if desired. New tasks trigger a notification sound as well as an automatic refresh. TaskList.

Electronics Attachments: Images and perio charts can now be exported directly from within the claim, making it easier to then upload them to NEA. E-claims Attachments.

Statements: Created a table in the database to store statements. Statements permanently archived as PDFs so they can be viewed later. An old statement may be reprinted. Statements.

Billing: Overhauled billing windows. More defaults. Bold messages on dunning items. Bold messages show in larger red. Batches of bills are created in the first step, allowing preview and editing before finally printing or sending batch by email. Order batch by billing type or alphabetically.
