  1. Optional TX Plans: ie: Crowns vs bridge vs partials

    When treatment planning these items it puts all treatment on the unsceduled lists creating work that is optional to the patient vs decay which is a priority.

    • Simple Select feature in the family file

      It would be nice to be able to choose whether we use the new patient select screen or to use the older version of the "Simple Select" when clicking the 'more info' button. This option is currently available in the chart but it would be nice to have in the family file also.

              • Create a list of insurance companies based on patient parameters

                It would be helpful to be able to see what insurance companies are being used the most within the practice. In being able to figure this out it would be helpful to set the parameter for patients seen within the last 18 months. If the list could combo all insurance companies - not broken down by group #. For example, "How many patients have been seen in the last year have that have Delta? that have MetLife?" The list wouldn't be 600+ pages since ALL Delta would be lumped together, all MetLife lumped together. Would also be nice to be…

                    • HELP: How does this happen?

                      I keep coming across patients who have a balance on their account due to procedures being posted to the top of the ledger without a date - these are services that were not rendered. I don't know how/why it happens, so I don't know how to stop/avoid it. These situations are typically found after the month has been closed, therefore they cannot be deleted - I invalidate and make adjustments as needed, but an excess of adjustments look trashy and other staff members could potentially collect a balance that is not accurate.
                      Does anyone know how this happens and what…

                          • Make next scheduled appointment viewable on Family File

                            View any future appts scheduled on family file. Consent and first appt are essentially redundant, viewing consent is not needed for day to day operations only for legal purposes. Last visit and missed appt are information useful only with future scheduled appts. Patients need information and service quickly so front desk personnel don't need to go to yet another screen (i button) to serve our patients efficiently, a quick reference is needed. If more information is needed then the i button is there to provide it.

                                  • I just started using the new appt list module... so all the completed tx that had been completed shows up in list.... NOT USEFUL!!! N

                                    I am very unhappy.... I was so looking forward to the new appt list. I have the ASAP list pulled up and there is completed tx on the list - why would I ever want completed tx on a list that I use to fill holes???? Changing the date span isn't efficient as the whole idea behind the list is to compile the info so I can find appt's that need moved up... If I knew when they were to set the dates on the list parameter I wouldn't need a list!!!

                                    • Entry Date Day sheet is missing Previous balance, balance and net change balances

                                      If you print out a daysheet going by the "entry date", the previous balance, balance and net change balances (under Grand Totals section) are not on this sheet. If Dr comes in after hours, charges will be put on the following business day with the date of said charges. Thus a new day sheet needs to be done. The info needed to finish this is missing.

                                      • When a new clinical note is selected please make it so that you are taken to the new note. It does not put you in the new note as of now.

                                        As it is now when a new note is selected it does not take you to the new note. Please make it so that when a new note is selected it takes you to the new note. Thank you,

                                        • Patient Setup in the Dxweb toolbar should bring up current patient in the family file

                                          In the DXWeb toolbar when you pull up a patient under patient setup, it will bring up the last patient pulled up in patient setup. I would like the Patient Setup option in the toolbar to bring up whoever is pulled up in the family file.
