Function-Specific Resolved Issues

Schedule and Practice Workflow / Tracking / Show Billing Reconciliation

Issue:

After the end user posted charges on the Billing Reconciliation panel of the Tracking window, OP 14 did not display the DX field in the Posted Charges grid. With this issue, OP 14 correctly posted the claim electronically and on the HCFA form with the appropriate diagnosis codes.  

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that OP 14 displays the DX code in the DX field of the Tracking window after the end user posts charges for that claim and displays the DX code in the Posted Charges grid.  

Billing / Adjudications 

Issue:

When the end user clicked the Process button in the Adjudications window, then clicked Check and Process Selected, OP 14 did not consistently process all of the selected checks.

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that, when the end user processes electronic adjudications, OP 14 successfully processes all checks.

Schedule and Practice Workflow / Diagnostic Tests

Issue:

OP 14 did not automatically display the label of the Diag Tests tab in red and did not display the number of received tests parenthetically to indicate received tests until after the end user clicked on the Diag Tests tab. 

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that OP 14 automatically displays the label of the Diag Tests tab in red and displays parenthetically the number of received tests when the end user opens Schedule and Practice Workflow. With this update, the end user does not have to click on the Diag Tests tab for the label to display in red and to see the parenthesized number of received tests. 

Patient Chart / Diagnostic Tests 

Issue:

When the end user selected an In-house lab requisition in the Diagnostic Tests window and clicked Print, OP 14 included in the printed lab report the Lab Name, Address, PATNO or Specimen Source fields from an Outside Servicing lab, based on HL7 results that are processed in OP 14.

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that, when the end user selects an In-house lab requisition in the Diagnostic Tests window and clicks Print, OP 14 does not include in the printed report any fields of information intended for Outside Servicing lab information.
