What's New in PracticeWorks 8.1

Good afternoon PracticeWorks community!

 

I am thrilled to announce that version 8.1 is now available. This was a labor of love and includes changes to the appointment book that we think you'll be excited to see.

This version contains the following items: 

 

Appointment Book Update

  • Appointment book scales to Windows screen resolution (no configuration needed)
  • Drag and drop appointments
  • Visual indicator of current time on day (thin red line)
  • Toolbar moved to horizontal position
  • Appointment book name displayed on appointment book
  • New controls to select a different book directly on the appointment book
  • Show/Hide floating calendar icon (next to selected date)
  • NOTE: Calendar icon will also “Bump” a hidden or off screen floating calendar.
  • Improved appointment book scroll navigation
  • UI enhancements

Read more about the appointment book changes here

 Updated Appointment Book

General

  • Defect corrected: Attachment pick list crash. This occurred when an attachment file name was over 80 characters. 
  • Defect corrected: Misc. over-distributions (LIA users only)

 

If you commented on the "Sneak Peek" post you will receive a copy of the DVD once the initial shipments go out.

glad to see the fit to screen.  I have 3 monitors in each treatment room.  All are different sizes and brands.  Makes for a nightmare to configure.

Re: What's New in PracticeWorks 8.1

I remember stumbling across a notation that in 8.1 we are no longer able to make appointments directly from the treatment in the tx plans (i.e. right click on the procedure in the tx plan, select "appointment information", and then enter the appropriate units, sticky notes, etc.).  This is not included in the list above.  Where can we find a comprehensive list of everything that has changed? (even the little-bitty items like this)

Sonya,

   The list Jeremy has posted above is a complete list of changes. I've also tested what you are talking about in version 8.1 and appointment information is still an option.

We see patients from 7:30am - 8:30pm.  How can I make the full day visible on my screen?  Right now I can see all of the am, but only half of the pm.

Ok, maybe this is something that came out between 7.9 and 8.1 (which is why we didn't see it), but this is totally new to me:  The "Collect" on the upper right of the ledger.  On this patient, it is obvious where it is coming from, but otherwise, where does this pull from?  Is this the only place where that shows up?

Here's something else new (although I can't access it for some reason) - the "view credit card information" when I right click on the Visa payment on the ledger.  Where does this come in to play?

Re: What's New in PracticeWorks 8.1

Nevermind - I found the screen resolution post.  Unfortunately, my monitor does not go up to 1920x1080, so I can't see our whole day.

I'm not sure how long you've had your monitor, but if you are replacing it anytime soon you can get a larger one with a higher resolution. It will be able to display the full schedule.

This is one a visual indicator we added primarily for Line Item Accounting. However it has benefit for all PracticeWorks users and was left in for everyone. For offices that enable Line Item Accounting there is a blue indicator letting you know if there is an amount that needs to be applied.
