Synergy EMR Version 7.0.00 Release Notes

HealthCare Assistant (Back Office)

Upgraded Features or Functionality

  • WE ARE CONSTANTLY IMPROVING THE “LOOK AND FEEL” OF THE APPLICATION. STAY TUNED FOR EVEN MORE CHANGES BASED ON USER FEEDBACK!
  • Number of LUPA visits now showing in the OASIS, Plan of Care, and Financial Summary
  • New Demographics Tab in the patient’s chart
  • Ability to sort documents and communications by date on the left panel of the patient chart
  • Under payroll processing, date ranges entered by the user are saved for each user’s session, meaning if you navigate elsewhere and come back, you don’t have to enter again.
  • Can set the “start page” as the home screen (in case it was changed to another screen).

Fixes

  • Administration-Related:
    • On Chrome browser – overlap on user rights caused user to not be able to access dropdowns.
    • Under user rights, dropdown wasn’t filtering based on role selected and you couldn’t reassign a template or role to a user.
    • Issues exporting lists that were filtered (e.g. clinical docs filtered by type of document then patient name)
  • Scheduling-Related:
    • Deleting visits under caregiver scheduling would reload the calendar and show a different date range
    • Issues creating appointments when patient was on hold – warning coming as fatal error.
    • Transfer status not correctly showing on the scheduler
    • Selecting multiple entries (holding shift key) not working
    • Issues on Caregiver Scheduler going back and forth with “view” tabs like today and month, etc.

    • Hospice – “Episode 1” changed to “Benefit Period 1”
  • Billing-Related:
