  • Appointment location code
  • Attending provider Tax ID

  • Encounter primary insurance type code

You can send holiday greetings, birthday messages, and appointment reminders to specific patients or groups of patients by filtering for age, location, provider, and more. Increase your patient outreach with these customizable greetings.

Time-saving Improvements to HL7 Reports, Medical Billing, and

Prescription Audits

When sending HL7 reports, in the Notes & Comments segment, additional drug details such as medication name, strength, dose, dispense, and refills are now added automatically.

Additionally, PrognoCIS now automatically applies specific medical billing codes to VFC vaccines in order save time and reduce the administrative burden in the medical billing process.

You can now  easily search Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) audit trails by drug name, action name, and reason for error, if present. For EPCS providers, you will now receive automatically-generated EPCS reports once a month through the self-schedule process. This fulfills the mandatory reporting requirements for EPCS, and displays all EPCS transactions conducted by the provider during the previous calendar month. Once the report is generated, a notification is sent to the provider screen with the subject line, “EPCS Monthly Report From: <beginning date-end date>.” The beginning and end dates correspond to the first and last dates of the previous month. In order to save time logging information in Prescription audit trails, “Add” and “Update” events are now additionally saved in the audits.
