Batch and Expiry Fields Added to Custom Drug Recipes
When creating or editing a drug recipe, you may now add your own batch number and expiry. Once a drug has passed the expiry date set within the recipe, you will not be able to prescribe this drug again.
Alcohol and Smoking Indicators in Patient Screen
You may now review the alcohol and smoking status of a patient easily, due to 2 new icons added to the patient field. Provided a patient has their alcohol and smoking status recorded within the Tobacco and Alcohol sections of the patient file, these icons will be displayed beside the patient’s date of birth. Hovering over these icons will provide additional information.
Unchecked Mail within Patient Record
Now when you click on the unchecked mail icon within the patient record, you will be directed to the appropriate result or secure message in question for quick review.
Additional Claim Type – Scheme – AGC (Access Gap Cover)
Scheme-AGC has been added as a default claim type within the ECLIPSE configuration window found within Preferences > ECLIPSE. More information on the Access Gap Cover claiming process can be found here: https://www.ahsa.com.au/web/doctors/agc
