Vitals Special Field Updates


We have added a new "Percent Ideal Body Weight" to the Vitals Tab in the Med/Clinical area (see Figure 3-2). This field will calculate the percentage of the ideal body weight to the actual body weight. This will also be available as a special field to populate into templates, autonotes, group notes and med/clinical fields when you add {XVITALS_PIBW} (see Figure 3-3) and within the {XLASTVITALS} special field (see Figure 3-4).

Calendar Appointment Intervals


The appointment intervals now allow the System Administrator to set the appointment intervals to 10 minutes and 20 minutes in addition to the 5 minutes and 15 minutes already available. 


Figure 2-11. Appointment Intervals 10 and 20 minutes.


NOTE: Once you update appointment intervals, a log off is required for the changes to take affect. It is best practice to have the slot interval equal to or less than your appointment interval.

Edit Client Screen and SMS Update


When you are in the "Edit Client" screen, next to the phone numbers, you have the option to select them as "Preferred", "NC" (No Contact) and "Notify via SMS" (see Figure 2-7). If you select "Notify via SMS", that client will receive text message updates to that number as long as you are subscribed to Appointment Reminders (see Figure 2-8). If you then check the "NC" checkbox, this will now unselect and disable the "Notify via SMS" checkbox (see Figure 2-9), and will no longer send any Appointment Reminders to that customer.

Figure 2-9. Checking NC checkbox will uncheck and disable the Notify via SMS checkbox.


If your client decides they would like to receive updates agian, simply uncheck the "NC" checkbox, and check the "Notify via SMS" checkbox.


Global Appointment Provider


When viewing an appointment in the calendar, upon hover, the first "User" listed is the provider of the appointment. When an appointments provider is set to "Global", this will now appear as "Global" instead of leaving a blank area (see Figure 2-10).

Medications Special Field Update


We have updated all of our Medications special fields. These fields include "XMEDSALL", "XMEDSACTIVE", "XMEDSPS", and "XMEDSOTHER". We now include the Start and Stop dates, and the Presribing provider (see Figure 2-4) that is recorded when adding the medication (see Figure 2-5).

General Log Update


When you are viewing your General Log, and you filter by a "Log Type", you will now see an option for "Imported Document" (see Figure 2-2). This is a new note type that BestNotes is developing and currently will not pull up any information. More details coming soon!

eMAR PRN Staff Signature Update


When passing PRN Medications in the eMAR, if you pass the medication, and navigate away from the page, upon return to that page, you will now see a yellow box next to the dispensed medication that indicates "Staff Signature" (see Figure 2-3). At this time, the user can click the "Staff Signature" button to sign the medication.

Episode Tab Update


Modifications were made to the display of the Episode tab. We now show you what the Length of Stay is for each one of the clients programs (see Figure 1-2). We also added the programs location to display with the program (see Figure 1-3).

Diagnosis Visual Update


We have made a modification to the diagnosis tool that will improve the workflow of adding a diagnosis. We have moved the code set dropdown from the far right hand side of the bar, to be on the left hand side of the bar (see Figure 1-1). This means that your staff can work from left to right, first selecting the Code Set, then the Category, then the Code. We believe this will help your workflow be more direct and easy to use for your staff members.
