EMSOW Release Newsletter – January 27, 2019

Dear customers!

We are glad to inform you that a new version of EMSOW has been released this week.

[#18160] Improved performance of the Clearing Module

Previously, queries in the Clearing module did not run fast enough to process large amounts of data. This was especially critical for large medical businesses that deal with huge financial flows daily. In this update, we have increased the speed of the queries and improved the stability of the module.

[#18183] Option to reduce CLM01 length for certain payers

The default length of the CLM01 segment (Patient Control Number) in electronic claims has been recently reduced to 20 symbols [#18023]. We have found that certain payers require this segment’s value to be even shorter and made it possible to change the length of the segment for them. Go to Setup → Insurances → double-click the needed payer → open the Billing tab, and change the “CLM01 length” option as required.

EMSOW Release Newsletter – January 16, 2019

Dear customers!

We are glad to inform you that a new version of EMSOW has been released this week.

[#18174] Make any file types available in Physician Portal

Good news for providers who pay attention to each and every small detail. We have made it possible to make any file type available to Physician Portal users. Go to Setup → Processing → File types and select the “Show in physician portal” checkbox for the required file types. Now your providers can get as much information from your paperwork as they need.

[#18186] Send claims without Rendering Provider IDs to certain insurances

Billing connectors have the “Include rendering provider” option, which enables the adding of rendering providers’ NPIs to box 24J of the 1500 form. We have made it possible to turn this option off for particular insurances by adding the “Include rendering provider“ checkbox to the “Billing” tab of the “Edit insurance” window. The new checkbox is selected by default.

[#18153] Print requisition forms from Billing

We have developed a printer-friendly requisition form. To use this feature, go to the “Print” menu in the Billing module and select “Requisition form.” If you need to customize the content of the form, please contact EMSOW Support and provide a template.

[#18152] Medical Necessity drop-down list

We have added a new drop-down list to the “Edit service” window in the Dispatch module, “Medical Necessity.” Mobile X-ray and ultrasound providers can use this drop-down to indicate the reason why an exam has to be performed portably. Possible reasons are set up under Setup → Processing → Medical necessity. The selected reason can be printed on the requisition form [#18153].

[#18167] Apply report design rules to template-generated pages only

EMSOW allows reading doctors to create reports for PDF-based studies, such as ANS and NCV, by using a template as the beginning of the report and attaching the original PDF to the end of it. Thus the final report contains both the doctor’s conclusion and the technical report generated by the diagnostic machine.

From now on, you can use report design rules to apply a custom letterhead to such reports by using the “Apply only to reports” checkbox in the “Edit report design rule” window. If this checkbox is selected, EMSOW will apply the letterhead only to the doctor’s conclusion generated from the template and leave the technical part of the report untouched.

EMSOW Release Newsletter – December 28, 2018

Dear customers!

We are glad to inform you that a new version of EMSOW has been released this week.

[#18107] Add notes to referring facilities

We have added a new field to the referring facility edit window (Setup → Referring → Referring Facilities), in which users can leave text notes. You will find this feature useful if you deal with many referring facilities and need to add comments to their records.

[#17878] Improved preliminary reporting

We have improved the stability of the preliminary report feature and fixed some bugs in it. Now the preliminary report tab closes immediately after a technologist clicks the “Complete preliminary report” button (formerly “Save preliminary report”). This ensures that the report is properly saved and no duplicate files are created.

[#17930] Removed date of service restriction from Physician Portal

Previously, the default “Date of service” range in the Physician Portal was set to three months. Some of our clients found it inconvenient, especially when they had to deal with older cases that were sent for comparison. We removed this restriction for the “Pending” queues.

EMSOW Release Newsletter – December 21, 2018

Dear customers!

We are glad to inform you that a new version of EMSOW has been released this week.

[#18031] Improved Messaging in the Report Tracking Module

Previously, when a user sent an inquiry regarding a report delay from the Reports Tracking module, the system needed the reading doctor’s email, otherwise, it returned an error. From now on, if the reading doctor’s email is missing, EMSOW will use the email of the reading facility, thus increasing the chance of receiving feedback from the responsible party.

[#18079] Notifications in mobile app

From now on, when the status of an exam is changed, mobile app users will receive a push notification. We believe mobile technologists will take advantage of this feature to efficiently manage their schedule on the go.

EMSOW Release Newsletter – December 14, 2018

Dear customers!

This week EMSOW has received a stability update to improve overall service performance.

Among other things, we have improved our phone-based clock-in system and its voice messaging functionality [#18092].

EMSOW can serve as a convenient clock-in system for your employees: all they need to do to check-in is dial a dedicated phone number and record a short message. You can listen to the recorded messages and track your employees’ hours using the Employees Time Tracking module.
