Released on 6/22/05
Providers: Default and daily schedule for each provider instead of having to use notes.
Blockouts in Appointments module: Movable blocks of time that can be used for many things, such as reserving time for emergencies, optimizing daily production, notes, etc. They are better than notes because they can be repeating, and you can put appointments on top of them.
Tasks: User-definded lists that can be grouped into any number of categories and optionally assigned to any date. Any patient or appointment can be attached to a task. Any task can be repeating by day, week, or month. Can be used for daily check off lists, monthly check lists, tickler lists, private to do lists, or any other similar use. This could replace many of those sticky notes you have lying around.
Staff module renamed to Manage module. More functionality added.
Backups: Built-in backup utility instead of having to use a separate program. It is simple at first and does not include backing up images, which you would still have to do separately if you use imaging. The backup can be done from any workstation rather than just the server. This makes it more convenient.
Patient Picture: Shows at the upper left of family module.
E-claims, X-12: Patient ID in addition to current subscriber ID. Support for preauths.
Dental Schools: Added following tables: Instructors, schoolclasses (eg. 2006 Dental, or 2005 Hygiene), schoolcourses (eg. OP 732 Operative Dentistry Clinic II). Appointment fields added: Instructor, Class, Course, and grade. Provider field added: Class
Trojan: Trojan is a program that provides insurance benefits information. Copy insurance address, etc from Trojan database.
Patient Import: Useful for conversions from other software. Not for beginners.
