  1. broken appointments

    When you break an appointment from the appointment book view, please set it up so that it will automatically create a clinical note that includes the reason that you select. Also link it to the patient chart and ledger so you dont have to enter it seperately like you do now.

    • Create the Practice Analysis report to calculate Active patient count by date range entered. Need to know active pt count by year.

      Allow the Practice Analysis report to generate correct Active Pt count by year. Dentrix does this. We need to be able to see how many active patients we have (By Active status) by year. We need to know this for # of Provider hours we have, how many patients we can accomodate - capacity.

        • Add new columns to the ledger to see adjustments and patient portion owed per line

          From the North East Dentrix Users Group

          · Add column(s) for aggregate payments, aggregate credits and balance remaining to each procedure row. Possibly add a column for any deductible owed.

          · Users can choose what columns to have the ledger display from the proc_log table fields

          · All columns, like amount, can be sorted by double clicking on the label of that column

          · Users can hide certain information, like special adjustments, regular adjustments, primary payments, and secondary payments

                    • Ability to Apply Suspended Credits For Insurance Overpayment After Month Has Closed

                      Ability to apply suspended credit after the month has closed. Example, say a patient payment is applied to the procedure before insurance pays, but when insurance pays, they pay more than what we estimated leaving a credit, but then the month gets closed and those credits are suspended and therefore frozen. Need to be able to fix this, without having to call Dentrix and have them run a Script-165.

                      • Allow billing types with an "as of" date.

                        When billing types change, need to be able to report financials based on the billing type at the time of service.

                          • Electronically prescribed medications, allergies & medical conditions inserted automatically in the clinical notes

                            Before this was done when we entered information in thru the "Red Cross" module. Now that we are inputting medications/allergies/problems via Allscripts, this feature is no longer available and is essentially doubling the work for us to have to input it again in the notes.

                                Thanks for the suggestion! We will get it on our priority list and see where it shakes out. In the meantime, let’s see if it’s more support on MyVoice.

                                From the North East Dentrix Enterprise Users Group

                                Several clinics agreed that searching in the appointment book could be improved. Searching in the appointment book is done by clinic or view and operates over the operatories clicked off. Searching for appointment could be improved by:

                                · Allowing for a link between provider and operatory, such that searching for a provider, shows only open appointments in a particular operatory or group of operatories used by that specific provider.

                                · Allowing for searches that involve appointments across multiple clinics

                                · Allowing views to show operatories in different clinics

                                · Allowing for searches…

                                    Hello,

                                    We have a department that is currently working on creating these on-demand tutorials. We hope to see the first group of these rolled out at the beginning of Q3 this year.

                                    Sincerely,

                                    Nate Nelson
                                    Product Manager, Dentrix Enterprise

                                  • Allow insurance attachment to any patient

                                    I think it would be helpful to many offices if we could attach patients to the insurance of any patient - there are too many broken families and having the Dad or Mom in the system in multiple families is a confusing work around to accomplish adding insurance to a child.
