EMSOW Release Newsletter – October 17, 2018

Dear customers!

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

[#17483] A new diagnosis edit option

We have made it easier for users to edit study diagnoses. Instead of opening the “Edit service” window to add, correct or delete an ICD code, you can just click on the link next to “Diag:” below the study name in the Processing or Billing module and make changes. If you want to take advantage of this feature, please send a message to our support at support@emsow.com and we will enable it for you.

[#17484] “Reason for the exam” field

We have added the “Reason for the exam” field to the Dispatch and Physician Portal modules.

[#17462] Stages in Dispatch

The Dispatch module now displays stages of exams in the Procedure column. The stages are changed as described below:

  1. A dispatcher enters new studies. For every new study, the stage is set to Undispatched.
  2. Next, the dispatcher clicks the “Dispatch” button – the stage is changed to Scheduled or In progress. A technologist receives an email with study information.
  3. The technologist reads the email and confirms the study list – the stage is changed to Confirmed. If the technologist has not confirmed the study list, the stage remains the same.
  4. After the studies are sent for reading, their status is changed to Transcriptions.
  5. If a study is read and has an attached report, the stage of this study is changed to Completed.

[#17798] Storage for sent invoices

We have created a sent invoices storage, which facilitates invoice tracking. Now users can find and check previously sent invoices in the archive at any time. The archived invoices are available in the Invoice Delivery Log module under the Billing menu.

[#17847] Study discount rules

A new feature that allows to set discounts for certain study types based on a set of conditions, including referring facilities, insurances, and early payments.

Bugs & Stability

We have improved the stability and performance of EMSOW and fixed a few bugs.

EMSOW Release Newsletter – October 10, 2018

Dear customers!

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

[#17690] Hospitalization dates

We implemented support for hospitalization dates in the system. You can specify admission and discharge dates in the properties of a service, and they will be included in claims that you submit electronically or on paper. If you want to use this feature in your workflow, please contact our support to get a short training session.

[#17820] Double check of patient height in DICOM files

It has been brought to our attention that certain ultrasound machines send patient height in centimeters as the value of DICOM tag (0010,1020), instead of meters. From now on, EMSOW will automatically correct the height value in those cases.

[#17461] Study priority levels in the Dispatch module

With this version, our users will be able to set one of the three priority levels for a case in the Dispatch module:

  • “Routine” (default) – highlighted as green
  • “ASAP” – highlighted as yellow
  • “STAT” – highlighted as red

The users can also quickly filter the cases in the Dispatch module by priority.

[#17811] Referring doctor suffixes on reports

From now on, the suffixes of referring doctors’ names (such as “MD” or “DO”) will be printed on image interpretation reports.

Bugs & Stability

We have improved the stability and performance of EMSOW and fixed a few bugs.
