Important Content Update Message
We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 20. OP 20 (official version 20.0.x) is the certified, 2015 Edition, version of the Office Practicum software. This is displayed in your software (Help tab > About) and in the Help Center tab labeled Version 20.0. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update all of our content.

Patient Chart: Statements

Version 14.19
The Patient Account window merged with the Patient Chart for easier convenience with the creation of OP 19. Since the Help Center supports both OP 14 and OP 19, the account functions within the patient chart for OP 19 will still be referenced at the same Help Center locations as OP 14.
