We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or OP 19. OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

Practices and Locations (Add, Remove, Edit)

Version 14.19

Path: Practice Management tab > Practices/Locations 

Overview

In this section, you will learn how to add a Practice or Location to your OP database. The addition of a Practice should only occur when there is a new Practice NPI involved. Locations, however, should be added whenever a practice adds an additional location to their practice. 

Adding a Practice

Note: The addition of a practice should only occur when a new NPI is involved. If you have questions as to whether or not you should be adding a new Practice to your database, please contact our Support team.
  1. Click the Practices tab, if not selected.

  1. Click the Add button .
  2. Enter all requested location information in the appropriate fields keeping these important points in mind:
  • Each Practice in your database must have its own sort order #.
  • Zip code must be nine digits, without a dash.
  1. Enter a Sort order to indicate where the location will appear in any applicable drop-down lists.
  2. Click the Save button  to save your edit.

Adding a Location

Follow the steps below to add a new location to your OP database. The addition of a location in the Practices and Locations table sets the groundwork for additional setup that must be configured in order for that new location to be fully functional in OP.  For the complete list of items to consider when adding a new location to your system, click here.

  1. Click the Locations tab.
  2. Click the Add button.
  3. Enter all requested location information in the appropriate fields keeping these important points in mind:
  • Each location must have a selection made in the practice drop-down.
  • Zip code must be entered as 9 digits, no dash.
  • CLIA ID is used to transmit the location's CLIA ID for billing purposes. 
  • The Sort order is the order in which this location will appear in location drop-down menus.
Warning: OP software is configured to look to this NPID (Corporate) field first to determine the Group NPI to bill on claims (when the Billing Loop includes the Practice NPI). Once the Group NPI is entered here, a selection of the appropriate claim box is required. Choose one of the following:
  • Line 32 only (service location) to populate the Group NPI on line 32 of claims.
  • Line 32 + 33 (service and billing) to populate the Group NPI on lines 32 and 33 of claims.
If this field is left blank, OP will defer to the Practice NPI field in the Practice Info tab of the Staff/Provider Directory.
  1. Click the Save button. 
Note: Once a new location has been added, any patients registered while a user is signed into a particular location will automatically have that location listed as their Medical Home.
