Treatment Plans and Completed Procedures with Improved Legibility

We’ve spruced up Treatment Plans and Completed Procedures to make it easier to read for you. We should also mention that it looks way better now, and all the information you need is neatly organised.

Treatment Plans

To make it easier on your eyes, we’ve organised everything in a tabular structure. We’ve packed in all the information you need: From patient details, to Treatment Plan information with the doctor’s name. We’ve also reduced the size of each Treatment Plan entry, which does two things : It makes it easy for you to pick out information, and you don’t have to scroll around the screen as much as you did before.

Completed Procedures

We’ve applied the same principles of making the information as crystal-clear as possible here. We’ve arranged everything so you don’t have to search for anything. You get the benefits of reduced scrolling and increased legibility in this as well. Actually, why don’t you look below and see for yourself?

Your microsite will look great even on mobile phones, so people can access your information from anywhere. The Microsite is a free service that comes with your Practo Ray subscription.

Improved auto-selection of Therapist or Doctor

With this improvement, when a staff user (non doctor/therapist user) adds a completed procedure from procedure catalog the system will automatically select the most recent appointment’s doctor or therapist  as the one who performed the procedure.

AppointmenDoctorAsDefaultSimilarly, the most recent appointment’s doctor or therapist is selected as default when a procedure from catalog is added to Invoice

AppointmenDoctorAsDefault-InvoiceThis improvement in default doctor selection can be seen while adding any of the following information:

  • Treatment Plan
  • Clinical Notes
  • Completed Procedure
  • Prescription
  • Procedures in Invoice
  • Products in Invoice (only for Basic & Advanced plan subscribers)

Please note that as an exception to this rule when a Completed Procedure is added from Treatment Plan, the Treatment Plan’s doctor or therapist is selected by default.

Released: One Step Invoicing

Until now you needed to first add a Completed Procedure before you added it to an Invoice. With the new super fast One-Step Invoicing, we’ve made it a lot easier for you.

You can now add any procedure from the Procedure Catalog (on the right). You can also add procedures from your Treatment Plans and Completed Procedures. Adding Procedures to Invoices

In the Procedure Catalog, Completed Procedures are identified by a ‘Completed’ label appearing in Green color next to the procedure name. Similarly, the procedures from Treatment Plans are identified by ‘Planned’ labels.

The Planned procedures and the procedures added directly from the Procedure Catalog are automatically marked as Completed once the Invoice is saved.

The first in the long line of updates we have planned to make your Inventory top notch, we are introducing Expiring Stock Alerts. Now, you will get an expiring stock alert email at the start of each month which lists out your products expiring in the next three months.

This three month advance alert should give you time to sort out expiring stock and minimise waste.
