What's new in Accuro EMR?
It’s time again for another update to Accuro EMR! Read on for a description of the latest features and functions. You can always access release notes from the Help menu of Accuro. If you are unsure of how to Update Accuro, please contact QHR Client Services.
Accuro users not using First Data bank will now be able to view medications by their name (instead of by a string that included the name, strength, form and route).
A CSV export of the form data for NutriSTEP can be manually run for clinics in Ontario. Both the NutriSTEP Preschooler questionnaire and the NutriSTEP Toddler questionnaire are available in the Ontario Forms Repository.
The message displayed in the Accuro Feedback window has been updated to say "Feedback has been successfully sent to QHR Technologies Inc."
An update has been made so that time intervals are calculated to the next 15 minute interval (i.e. 25 minutes is billed a 2 x 15 minute time intervals). Previously, Accuro was not calculating a unit unless the full time for that interval was reached.
A warning message has been added to notify users that if they change the Provider availability office, the appointment is cancelled (the patient will receive an appointment cancellation email) and will need to be rebooked (but this will not be an online booking appointment).
An update has been made to prescription warnings, users are now warned if a prescription is created for a medication that the patient has already been prescribed.
Having the Add and Edit Buttons on ribbon of the Immunization Summary (EMR > Encounter Notes > Medical History section) was causing confusion as both buttons are very similar. An update has been made so that if only the Immunization Schedule is visible, the Edit button is displayed; if the Immunization Summary is displayed, only the Add button is displayed.
The Medical History band was not being refreshed after users made changes in the Prescription window. An update has been made and this is now fixed.
A new Feature Access option has been added to Query Alerts so that users can run a query independently of managing the alerts. These permissions are set by going to Alt > search 'Feature Access Management 'and enabling "Run Alerts (Query Builder)" under the Reports heading. Note: Feature Access can only be managed by System Administrative users.
An old legacy Vaccination module that is no longer used has been removed from the Accuro software. Users will not see any change to Accuro with this item.
An update has been made to the Claims area of Accuro. There is a new Submission Manager window, To access this window, click the Submission Manager button at the bottom right of the Claims window (to the right of the Assessments button). In the Submission Manager window that opens, there are new Undo and Redo Submission buttons
Updates have been made to the Accuro multi-office setup and Medeo Online Booking. If the office associated with a time slot cannot be determined, the user is notified and the time slots are not sent to Medeo.
An update has been made to ensure that Accuro reuses medical history information in the different modules (rather than unnecessarily accessing the database). This will improve the performance of Accuro, although users will not see any visual changes.
While investigating another issue our development team found that the synchronization of forms is not working properly. An update has been made and this is now fixed.
Changes have been made to the way the Medical History is saved in the database. Users will not see any differences in Accuro with this item.
An update has been made to improve the performance of the EMR by refreshing a patient's Medical History, rather than clearing and reloading it from scratch.
An update has been made to the way Accuro saves letters. By making the software do this more efficiently, the performance in Accuro will be improved.
Updates have been done to the way the Wait Room accesses the database. This change was made to improve the speed and efficiency of Accuro for users when they are in the Wait Room.
Maintenance and Issue Fixes
An update has been made to ensure that the Accuro Medication tables are up to date for the first use of 2016.02.
When a bill was created and the prefix is applied as part of the Procedure Code, the bill amount was not being calculated correctly. An update has been made to ensure that all bills with predefined prefixes are now calculated correctly.
An update has been made to the sizing of the Claim window to ensure that it displays correctly for all possible screen resolutions.
An icon was recently added which displays for Scheduler Suggestions that aren't available due to Provider availability conflict. One of the checks that this new feature makes wasn't working correctly. An update has been made and this is now fixed.
RMA Billing Codes were generating an error for clinics where they were not configured correctly. An update has been made to ensure the RMA Billing Codes now work correctly for all sites (with RMA Billing enabled).
Following a recent change, the visit count displayed in the Traffic Manager wait room was only including appointments if the current time was after the start time of the appointment. An update has been made so that the visit count once again includes all appointments for the days selected, irrespective of the time of day.
