Release Notes

This section contains a list of items that have been updated in various versions of ProPharm One+. You can review the list of features that have been added and defects that have been corrected in each version of the software.

 

2.2.24 (8/23/23)

Added Pickup Time to Pseudoephedrine Sales Log Report [PWEB-664]

The Pseudoephedrine Sales Log report will now include both the pickup date and pickup time.

 

 

2.2.8 (3/17/21)

[485] Credit Card Payments: Added Option to Save Patient's Card Information for Future Payments

A new option has been added to the OpenEdge credit card payment screen that displays during the Checkout process. Users will now have the option to save the patient's credit card information to use that credit card on the patient's future transactions.

 

[484] Made Change to Include NCPDP "Quantity Prescribed (460-ET)" Field on All Insurance Claims for Schedule II Drugs

 

[483] PDMP: Corrected Issue Causing DSP12 Invalid Format Warnings in ASAP Versions Lower than 4.2A

When generating ASAP files that are not for version 4.2A, the DSP12 field will be set to "99" when the Rx Origin is "Transferred In." This will prevent invalid format warnings when the files are submitted.

 

[223] Removed GoToMeeting Screen Sharing Option from Help Menu

Changes have been made to the screen sharing options under the Help menu. The Share My Screen option (with its sub-menu options of GoToMeeting and Kalos Support) has been replaced by a single Kalos Support Screen Share option. This will give users a clear, simple way to navigate to the appropriate method for sharing their screen with the support staff.

 

 

2.2.7.1 (2/8/21)

Made Change to Remove Digital Signature Check on Non-EPCS Scripts

After changes were made in 2.2.6.1 to correct a defect, a secondary defect was found that caused all scripts, including non-EPCS scripts, to be checked for a Digital Signature Indicator. This caused all non-EPCS messages to be rejected. This problem has now been corrected.

 

 

2.2.6 (2/1/21)

A fix was applied to the CheckEPCS function. The intention of this function is to reject any digitally signed electronic order (EPCS signing method 1) and accept only orders with a digital signature indicator (EPCS signing method 2). There was a defect introduced in June of 2019 that incorrectly allowed orders utilizing either method to be accepted. While both methods are allowed by the DEA, it was not the intended design for ProPharmOne+ and has been corrected. It is not expected that this change will affect our users' experience and will not require any action for any past EPCS orders. However, it is an important change needed to match the assertions in our 2021 EPCS DEA Audit.

 

 

2.2.5 (10/19/19 - 1/27/21)

[4034] Corrected Issue Preventing some Controlled Substance Scripts from being Submitted to PDMP

In the PDMP File Generation interface, an unnecessary check on the AIR segment was causing issues with submitting some Controlled Substance scripts. This occurred on scripts where someone other than the patient picked up the prescription. When users entered a name for the person picking up the script, the service was requiring all data to be present, resulting in errors. A change has been made so that whatever data the user enters about the person picking up the script, that data will be submitted.
 
With this correction, older messages (which previously had errors) will now be submitted to your state PDMP. Please be aware that if your state PDMP requires certain data to be sent, you may receive emails from the state PDMP about any data that is incorrect.

 

[4037] Corrected Alignment of "Update" Checkbox in Receive Inventory Screen

 

[3850] Added Ability to Receive Text Messages from Patients and Respond via Messaging Center

A new Messaging Center has been added which will allow users to view incoming messages from patients and to respond directly to those messages. Users will be able to view the pharmacy's texting history with the patient, search for scripts in the patient's profile, and queue refills from within this screen.
 
Along with the existing functionality for setting up a texting Workflow stage, a new Workflow Task has also been added to send a default text message automatically, behind-the-scenes, as a Non-Visual Task.
 
Please note that our support staff will need to set up the necessary texting service in order for you to use these new features. Please contact our support staff for details.
 
For more information on these new capabilities, please review the Texting Patients chapter of the User's Guide.

 

[4026] Checkout: Made Changes to Prevent Delays after Signature is Approved for Non-Licensed POS Systems

These changes were made to prevent slowness after confirming a patient's signature in the Checkout process.

 

[3668] Added New "Scripts By Hour" Report

The new Scripts By Hour report shows prescription volume by time of day.

 

[3953] Changed Name of Field in Pricing System Formula Overrides to "Pricing Table"

In the Pricing System screen, under the "Formula Overrides" tab, the field which was previously titled "Price Formula" has been renamed "Pricing Table" to make it more consistent with other parts of the application.

 

[3938] Notification Center Enhancements

Improvements have been made to the Notification Center to make it easier to navigate and more helpful to users. These changes move normal system notifications out of the way, leaving room for the important messages to be your focus. We encourage our users to use it for communication among pharmacy staff and give us your feedback on how we can make it more useful. Please review the User's Guide for more information.

 

[3792] Appriss PMP Gateway Integrated into ProPharm One+ Workflow

You can now view a patient's state Controlled Substance history within the ProPharmOne+ workflow via our new integration with Appriss PMPGateway.
After receiving credentials from Appriss, you can enter your User Name and Password in the Options screen to begin using these features. When you are set up to use this functionality, a new "Controlled Substance History" button will appear in the Pharmacist Verification task. (You can also set up a specific Workflow stage for completing the Controlled Substance History task.) When you click on this option, ProPharm One+ will display the patient's information directly from Appriss' website.

For more information on using these tools, please refer to the User's Guide.

 

[3889] Improved "You are signing for" Window on Signature Pad

The "You are signing for" window that appears on the Signature Pad will now display both scripts and over-the-counter items. It will also display each item's price and the total price for the transaction.

 

[3968][3983] Corrected Issues with the Printing of Telerik Reports

 

[3846] Added Warning when Dispensing NDC that does Not Match the Drug Type for the Prescribed Drug on a DAW 1 or DAW 2 Script

Users will be warned if a script has a "Dispense as Written" setting of 1 or 2 and the Dispensed Drug does not match any NDCs in the Drug Type which contains the NDC of the Prescribed Drug (as found in Medi-Span). These warnings will appear in both the Script Filling screen and in Pharmacist Review.

 

[3985] Made Change to Allow for Paragraph Formatting in Release Notes

A change has been made to allow for new lines to be added in release notes while maintaining white space.

 
This change will allow for release notes to be separated into multiple paragraphs.

 

[3873] Added Warning when Filling Script Before Future Effective Date

A warning message will now appear if you are filling a script and the Administration Date is prior to the Effective Date. This will help users to notice when they are filling a script with a future Effective Date.

 

[3999] Made Change to Print Double-Sided Med Guides

Medication Guides will now be printed on both sides of the page.

 

[3991] Added Preferred Phone Number to Claim Response Report

The patient's Preferred Phone Number will now be displayed on the Claim Response Report (which can be printed from the Claim Verify window).

 

[3945] Enhanced PDMP Errors

The PDMP errors shown in the Notification Center will now be more helpful and informative.

 

[3990] Added DSP07 Field to ASAP 4.2A Report

 

Changes to Ensure that Service Indicator Handles Windows Permissions

The "service working" dot will now blink red when services are not found due to permissions.

 

[3967] Corrected Issue with Loading Telerik Reports into Database

 

[3931] Enhanced Error Message that appears at Checkout when attempting to Dispense a Script with Previous Fills which are Not Picked Up

In the Checkout screen, if a user attempts to process a fill for a script with previous fills that have not yet been picked up, an error message appears. This error message will now contain the correct script number (and fill sequence number) of the fill that still needs to be picked up before the current fill can be processed.

 

[3916] Enhanced Script Editing Processes

Changes have been made to better handle the editing of scripts in various situations. Fills that have not yet been picked up can be edited without issue. If a user attempts to edit a fill that has already been picked up, editing will initially be limited to Insurance and Pricing information. The user can click on the "Unlock" button to enable further editing. If a user attempts to edit the ORIGINAL fill of a script that already has refills which have been picked up, editing will be limited to Insurance and Pricing information. If a user is editing a refill when subsequent refills have already been picked up, editing will initially be limited to Insurance and Pricing information, but the user will have the option to "Unlock" further editing. Please note that scripts which have been sent to a Dispensing Machine will only have limited editing options. For full editing, the order will need to be canceled at the Dispensing Machine.

 

[3861] Checkout Screen: Changes for Selecting Payment Type when Processing Returns or Reconciliations

When processing a return or reconciliation in the Checkout screen, the previous payment type that was used for the item will be displayed. Users will be required to select the payment type that is being used, either for a reconcile payment or a refund to the patient.

 

[3963] Allow New Refill Requests on a Deleted Script after Rollover

There was an issue that prevented a New Refill Request from being submitted on a script that was Deleted and Rolled Over. This problem has been corrected.

 

[3959] Made Changes to Ensure that Service Indicator will Blink Red for any Service that is Not Running

The service indicator (the gray icon at the top of the screen) will now blink red if any service is not running.

 

[3695] Corrected Issues with Refill Requests that cause Active Scripts to Drop Out of Workflow

 

[3670] Enhancements for Handling Lengthy SIGs

Changes have been made to improve the handling of lengthy SIGs. If a user is entering a long SIG into the Directions field of the Script Filling screen, ProPharm will warn the user if any of the words in the SIG will be cut off on the label. Any words that may be cut off will be shown in red in the Expanded SIG field. (For more information, please review the Entering Directions section of the User's Guide.
Functionality related to the "Shrink-to-Fit" option on your labels has also been improved. (If you are interested in using this option, please contact our support staff.) If your label is set to use Shrink-to-Fit, the text shown in the Expanded SIG field of the Script Filling screen will shrink to match the size of the text on the label. In this way, as a user continues to type out the Directions, they will see how the text is shrinking to fit on the label AND whether the text will be cut off at the end.

 

[3950] Added Translations of Reason Codes in Workflow Event History for Refill Request Responses

 

[3961] Made Change to Run Backup Service Nightly at 2:00 AM

 

[3962] Automatic Workflow Stages: Made Change to Ensure the Sequence is Accounted for Properly, Next Task is Chosen Correctly

 

[3974] Corrected Issue with Expiration Date Not Recalculating on a Rollover when Written Date is Edited

There was an issue that prevented the Expiration Date from being recalculated properly on Rollover scripts if a user modified the Written Date. This issue only affected Rollovers, not new scripts. A change was made to ensure that the Expiration Date will be calculated properly.

 

[3948] Script Images: Corrected Issue with "Last Used Rx" Option

There was a problem with the "Last Used Rx" button for adding a Script Picture in the Script Filling screen. When an image was added using this option and the script was saved, the image was not being saved along with the script. This problem has been corrected so that the "Last Used Rx" button can be used properly.

 

[3971] Corrected Rx Expiration Dates on Filling Screen Based on Options Set

 

[3934] Made Change to Base Expiration Date on Effective Date (If One Exists)

There was an issue with Surescripts orders that were given a future Effective Date. If an order was received with a future Effective Date and the order expired 21 days after the Written Date, the pharmacy might not be able to fill the order. A change has been made so that, if an Effective Date is received, the Expiration Date will be based on that information. This will allow orders with a future Effective Date to be filled in these scenarios.

 

[3955] Corrected Barcode Scanning at Checkout to Find Active Drugs First

A change was made so that when a barcode is scanned during the Checkout process, if the scan finds multiple results, an item that is marked as active will be selected over an item that is inactive. If multiple items are active, a drug record will be given priority over a non-prescribed inventory item.

 

[3957] Corrected Issues with Pricing Table Tax Rates Affecting Claims, Changed Name of Pricing Table Tax Rate Field to "OTC Override Tax Rate"

Issues with the Pricing Table tax rate have been corrected. The title of the tax rate field in the Pricing Tables screen has been changed to "OTC Override Tax Rate" for the sake of clarity.

 

[3555] Added Optional "Latest Event" Column to Workflow Stages

In a Workflow stage, you can click on the "Modify Columns" option to choose which columns are displayed. A new column has been added which is titled "Latest Event." This column will show a title and description of the last event that occurred for that Workflow item. This column will be particularly useful for seeing the status of a Refill Request. For example, if the Refill Request was denied and that was the latest event for the script, the column will show that the request was denied and will include the reason code that was sent along with the denial.

 

[3956] Corrected Issue where Pricing Table Tax Rates were affecting Claims

 

Corrected Secondary Insurance when Claim Changes are Submitted

 

Corrected Install Location of Service Reports

 

Corrected Tax Rate within the Pharmacy for Claims Processing

[3770] Added Duplicate Therapy to Medi-Span Screening Fields Shown in Script Filling Screen

In the DUR screening section of the Script Filling screen, the Drug Effects screening field has been removed and a Duplicate Therapy field has been added. The full DUR Results can still be viewed by clicking on the "DUR Information" option.

[3828] Corrected Issue with Default Insurance Option Not Working for Hold Scripts

There was an issue with the default insurance setting not working properly for Hold scripts. There is a setting in the Options screen titled, "How Default Insurance is Chosen when Filling a Script." When this setting was set to one of the "last used" options, the default insurance was being ignored for Hold scripts. This problem has been corrected so that the default insurance will work properly.

 

[3818] Added Shadowing to Pop-Up Windows

 

[3937] Corrected Issue with Error that Occurred when Discontinuing a Script/Leaving Workflow

[3844] Throw Error if Script is on Hold and a Claim is Submitted

 

[3780, 3829] Added Ability to Select a Doctor Other Than Original Doctor when Requesting Refills

When requesting refills, users can now select a doctor other than the original prescribing doctor. The "Change" option in this window (which allowed users to change the doctor's SPI number) has been removed. Doctor SPI numbers can be managed directly from the Doctor Maintenance screen.

 

[3843] Corrected Issue causing "Sequence Contains No Elements" Error in Verification Queue

 

[3807] Enhancements to Facilitate PDMP Reporting in California

The IS03 field (Date Range) will now be included for ASAP 4.1 files. (Previously this was only used in ASAP 4.2 and higher.) The AIR02 field (State Issued Rx Serial Number) is also included if Form Number is used. (This applies to files using ASAP 4.0 and higher.)

If a user is filling the initial fill for a script and they toggle the GPI digits option to "10" (rather than "14"), when the script is refilled and the user is searching for an option in the Dispensed drug field, the 10-digit option will be selected automatically and drugs that match based on that option will appear in the search list.

 

[3783] Medi-Span Screening Color Changes

The color scheme of the Medi-Span screening results will now be as follows: Contraindicated—Red, Not Recommended—Yellow, Extreme Caution—Yellow, Use Cautiously—Yellow, Informational—Black

 

[3805] Script Filling: Corrected Issue with Focus Changing to Different Location after Allergy Pop-Up

There was an issue that caused the focus to move from the "Written Date" field to the "Save" button if the allergy pop-up appeared. This has been corrected so that, whether or not the allergy window appears, the focus will be set to the "Written Date" field when you begin filling a script.

 

[3775] Improved Search Field used when Adding "Other Medications"

The search field that is used when adding Other Medication information for a patient has been enhanced. When you search for a drug, the results will be grouped by GPI number (unless you are specifically searching by NDC). You can also search using a partial Drug Name and Strength.

You can verify the ID by entering the appropriate text or by taking a picture of the ID card.

 

[3766] Medi-Span Options: Changed Default Values to Match Medi-Span Defaults

The values in the Medi-Span Options screen are now defaulted to the lowest settings (i.e., the settings that produce the most results). This will not change any settings that a user has already established, only options that the user has never set.

There is also an "Edit Date" button that allows you to change the date of the next update.

 

[3781] Price a Drug Tool: Added Ability to Scan Barcode Without Changing Focus

In the "Price a Drug" screen, you can now scan a barcode without setting the focus to any particular field.

 

[3536] Customer Portal: Added Ability for Pharmacy to Perform a Manual Refill

[3715] Added Support for Hyperlinks in Release Notes

 

[3675] Script Images: Added Ability to Attach "Last Used Rx" Image to Script

In the Script Filling screen, rather than taking a new picture of the script, you can choose the "Last Used Rx" option and use the last script image that was taken for this patient.

 

[3791] Improved Handling of Surescripts Refill Requests for Doctors Without the Proper Service Level

When submitting an internet Refill Request, if there is a problem connecting, a more helpful error message will now be shown to the user to explain the situation. If the selected doctor is not able to accept Refill Requests, the "Internet Request" button will be disabled.

 

[3769] Added Toast Message to Indicate why Doctor Maintenance Window has Popped Up during Rx Change

A toast message will be shown when the Doctor Maintenance window pops up during the Rx Change process. This only occurs on some occasions when the user is sending an Rx Change message, not when performing a manual change.

 

[3637] Enhanced JDE Import Notifications

The script number that is displayed at the top of the Pharmacist Verification screen will now include the Fill Sequence indicator at the end of the number (e.g., Rx2680-0, Rx2680-1).

[3691] Checkout: Prevent Fill from being Picked Up if Previous Fill on Same Script has Not been Picked Up

 

[3650] Removed Unexpected Toast Messages when Pressing "Enter" on Maintenance Text Field

A feature has been added that allows users to save defaults. To locate this functionality, click the "More" button on any maintenance screen. Previously, there was an issue that occurred when a  user would press the "Enter" key while on a text field within a maintenance screen. When this happened, ProPharm would save whatever value was entered as the default. This functionality was unintended and has been removed. Pressing "Enter" now in this situation will do nothing. The only way to save a default is to use the intended method of  pressing the "More" button.

 

[3649] Corrected Minimum Pickup Age Default Error when Entering Drug Manually

 

[3641] Added Warning when a New Script is a Duplicate of an Active Script

There is now a script warning when you attempt to save a script that is for a drug that is the same as an active script already on the patient's profile. This is to alert the user to possible duplicate therapy.

 

[3530] Medispan API: Fixed Issue where Pregnancy Contraindications would Not Display

2.2.5 (10-18-2019)

[3608] Show Release Notes in Updates Screen of ProPharm

Going forward, release notes will be displayed in the Updates screen rather than on this page. From the Updates screen, you can view the list of items that are available with your next update. You can also peruse release notes from previous builds.

 

[3606] Checkout: Corrected Issue with "Override" Checkbox Covering "Tax" Checkbox

This problem has been corrected so that both checkboxes can be viewed and used properly when adding an item in the Checkout screen.

 

[3569] Checkout: Default POS Dispense Quantity to Equal Purchase Quantity when Blank

If a drug's Point of Sale Dispense Quantity field is left blank, it will default to the Purchase Quantity in the Checkout screen.

 

[3512] Added Ability to Edit Scripts that have Already been Picked Up

Users will now have the ability to edit scripts that have been picked up by the patient (as long as there are no subsequent fills that have already been filled for that script). If the fill being edited has already been picked up, has already been submitted to PDMP, or has a claim, a warning message will appear. The user will need to mark the appropriate checkboxes to verify that they understand the implications of editing this fill. The user will then be able to proceed with editing.

 

[3513] Corrected Issue with Transfer Out Printing causing Error when Patient has No Preferred Phone

When a user was transferring a script out of the pharmacy and marked the Print Report checkbox, the user received an error message if the selected patient was not set up with a Preferred Phone. This problem has now been corrected so that printing can occur without errors.

 

 

2.2.5 (10-04-2019)

[3597] Scanning to Add Item at Checkout brings up Wrong Drug when the Scanned Item is Not in the Database

When users attempted to scan a drug barcode in the Checkout screen, if the drug's barcode did not match an item in the inventory, an incorrect drug record was being pulled up in the Checkout screen. This problem has been corrected so that the wrong drug will not be selected and the user will receive an appropriate error message when the desired drug is not in the database.

 

[3573] Added Ability to Change the Prescribed Drug on a Rollover

When processing a script rollover, users will now be able to change the Prescribed drug for the script.

 

[3549] No Clinic Options Found when Adding to an Existing Doctor Record

There was a problem that prevented users from finding clinic options for a Surescripts Doctor after the doctor record had already been created. If a doctor was created and a clinic for the doctor was selected immediately, the available clinics were shown correctly. However, if a doctor was created without clinics and then a user went back to add clinics for the doctor at a later time, no available clinic options were found.

[3546] Enhanced "Questions for Pharmacist" Pop-Up during Checkout

Changes have been made to the "Do you have any questions for the pharmacist?" pop-up window that appears during the Checkout process. The customer's options will now be:

These more detailed responses should make it clear to the customer which option they are selecting.

[3563] Removed "Rx Change" Option from E-Orders that have been Placed on Hold

When an E-Order is placed on Hold, the "Rx Change" option will no longer be available in the order details section of the filling screen. Previously, this option was shown on the screen but when it was selected it only resulted in an error message. Since this option is not intended to be used in this scenario and cannot work in this context, the button has been removed.

 

[3567] Corrected Issues with Previewing "Transferred Out" Script

There were problems with previewing a script that had been transferred out when using the Group by Drug view in the Patient Profile. This problem has been corrected so that the transfer information can be viewed properly.

 

[3594] Added Medi-Span Options for Performing ADE Screening and Disabling All Screening

Two new options have been added to the Medi-Span Options screen.

oYou can use the Screen ADE checkbox to determine whether or not ADE screening will occur. By default, this option has been turned off. To ensure that ADE Screening occurs, be sure to check this option.

oYou can also mark the checkbox to Disable Screening. This option may be useful in situations where the Medi-Span API is down, preventing screening from occurring as normal. In these circumstances, users would receive an error when attempting to fill scripts. With this option, you can disable all Medi-Span screening so that users can continue to fill scripts until the problem is resolved. At that point, you can uncheck the Disable Screening option and continue Medi-Span screening.

 

[3568] Changes for Rollovers placed on Hold

A change has been made so that when a script that still has quantity remaining is rolled over, if the newly created script is placed on Hold, the original fill will not be Discontinued. (Please note that the original fill will be Discontinued if the user clicks Save on the new rollover script rather than clicking Hold.)

 

[3541] Added "Brand Name" Field to Drug Maintenance Screen

A new free-text field, Brand Name, has been added to the Drug maintenance screen (under the Record Info tab). This field allows you to enter the necessary brand drug name to be displayed on labels when a generic drug is dispensed as a substitute for a brand drug.

 

[3591] Added Ability to Manually Change Prescribed Drug on E-Orders

Changes have been made to the way the "Rx Change" feature works when processing E-Orders. The Auto-Approve option has been removed and a new Manual Change feature has been added.

In manual mode, the pharmacist can select a new Drug for the order and enter a Note.

 

 

2.2.5

A Flag button will now appear on the left side of the Claim Verify window. If you click on this option, the script will be moved to the "Flagged Scripts" Workflow stage.

 

[13784] Corrected Issue with Claim Verification showing "Unknown User" when Original Verification is Not Active

When a claim was verified and then changes were made which caused the original verification to be canceled, ProPharm was showing "Unknown User" rather than showing that the claim was not verified. This has been corrected.

 

[11938] Added Ability to Log Out User when Browser is Closed

A change was made so that users can be logged out of ProPharm when the browser is closed. You can contact our support staff for more information on setting up this option. Please note that ALL browser windows will need to be closed in order to log out the user.

[12029] Added Warning when there are More than 1,000 Items Active in Workflow

[11977] Receive Inventory: Added "Update" Checkbox to Determine whether Acquisition Cost should be Updated

For cases when the pharmacy receives a special price on an item and wants to record the one-time Acquisition Cost without updating the drug's Acquisition Cost in their drug records, a new Update checkbox has been added to the Receive Inventory screen. If the user unchecks this option, the drug's Acquisition Cost will not be updated to match the cost that is being entered in the Receive Inventory screen.

 

[11971] Added Replacement Cost Information to Pricing Results Window

The Pricing Results window for a script will now show the Replacement Cost.

 

[11927] Credit Card Payments: Enhanced Ability to Use Unapplied Card Payments in Checkout

In some cases (e.g., when a card payment is entered but ProPharm is closed/refreshed before the transaction is complete), a credit card payment may not be applied to an item during the Checkout process. When this occurs, users will now be notified and will receive help in applying this payment to items for that patient.

 

If the user opens a patient's information in the Checkout screen and there is an unapplied card payment for that patient, the payment will automatically be listed on the "Available Items" side of the screen. The user must apply the payment to an item or void the payment before proceeding with the Checkout process for that patient. (Checkout can still be used as normal for other patients.)

 

[11902] Added Rx Change Functionality for E-Orders

There is now an Rx Change option in the Rx Order window that allows users to submit change requests for electronic orders.

 

[11771] Added "Away From Keyboard Timer" Option

[10183] Added Ability to Enter a Patient's "Preferred Name"

In the Patient maintenance screen, users can enter a patient's legal name but also have the option to enter a Preferred Name. This name will appear along with the legal name in many places throughout ProPharm (in the Patient maintenance screen, on the patient's "card" in Script Filling, etc.).

[13787] Corrected "Added by" Information for Drug Notes

The "Added by" information that displays next to Drug Notes in the filling screen was showing the current user rather than the user who entered the note. It was also showing the current date rather than the date the note was entered. The correct information was still saved in the logs but the wrong information was being displayed. This problem has been corrected so that the note logs will be displayed properly.

 

[13777] Corrected Issue with Original SIG Displaying on Labels rather than Edited SIG

This problem has been corrected so that when changes are made to a SIG, the updated information will be included on labels.

Any time a new record is entered, this value will be set automatically. (Users can still change the field's value manually if necessary.)

(12068) Surescripts Refill Request: Error when Submitting DAW Value Greater than 1

If an Internet Refill Request was submitted using a DAW code higher than 1, an error was returned. Surescripts only accepts DAW codes of 0 or 1 on these messages.

The Refill Request window has been updated. More information will now be displayed. Users can search for a doctor in the Doctor field. The Fax Request option has been replaced by a Clinic Request. This will allow you to send an electronic request to your local clinic. (This will require an interface and the clinic will need to be marked with the "Local Doctor" option.)

 

A Change option has also been added for updating the doctor's SPI. If the doctor's SPI has changed, you can click on the Change option to select the doctor's active SPI.

Enhancements have been made to the Rx Order Log screen (formerly titled "Surescripts Log"). You can now filter by a specific patient or a Message ID. An order's status will now be displayed on the log. The status line will show whether the order is Fulfilled, Waiting, or Voided.

 

(9530) Improvements to Rx Order Doctor Script Check

This check used to be too stringent and would warn if there was no DEA (or NPI) present in either the Doctor record or the Rx Order.  Now it will only give a warning if there is a DEA (or NPI) present in both the doctor record and the Rx order and they do not match.

 

(11453) Fixed Problem with Transfer In and Transfer Out Reports

The Transfer reports were not showing all of the transferred scripts, due to a problem where ProPharm was looking at the wrong Pharmacy ID in the database. This problem has been corrected so that all of the transferred scripts will be displayed on the reports.

(11662) Fixed Display of "PRN" for Surescripts Messages

When a Surescripts message had a Refill Qualifier of "PRN," this fact was displayed on both the Script Filling screen and the label. However, the Rx Order toolbar did not show "PRN" for the order's refills and the information was not displayed in the Rx Order Log screen (formerly known as "Surescripts Log"). This has been corrected so that PRN Surescripts orders will show that they are PRN in all these locations.

(11743) Patient Photo Carousel Not Working if there is also a Script Photo

In the Script Filling screen, users found a problem if they went to the patient's "card" and clicked on the Edit option, then browsed through the patient's photos.

This has been corrected so that the error will no longer occur.

 

(11753) Patient Information Shown in Point of Sale Not the Same as Elsewhere

In the "Point of Sale" screen (formerly known as "Pick Up"), the same details were not being shown on the patient information "card" as they were shown elsewhere in ProPharm.

The problem that was causing this error has now been corrected.

A change was made to ensure that the Transfer Out process no longer allows to users to transfer more than is left on the script.

Abbreviations in the Script Filling screen will now be translated properly whether you type them in upper case or lower case.

(9553) Point of Sale: Free Text Miscellaneous Items Not Appearing in Pickup Charges Report

(8657) Improved Home Screen and Widgets

Improvements have been made to the dashboard on the Home Screen. These changes should make it easier to add and edit widgets. A new toggle button has been added to switch between "Current Workflow Widgets" and "User Widgets." The User Widgets are the ones that have been selected for your specific user.

When setting up a Workflow stage, a few new options are now available to be used as Requirements.

(If a patient's Communication Method is set to "No Contact," the patient will not meet this requirement.) You can also add a requirement for "Patient Communication Unknown." (If a patient's Communication Method is set to "Unknown," they will meet this requirement.)

There were some instances where a patient's profile would be shown under the wrong patient's name. If "Patient A" was loaded first in the Script Filling screen, then "Patient B" was loaded, if Patient B had no scripts, the scripts in Patient A's profile were still being displayed. This has been corrected to ensure that the right profile will be shown for each patient.

Customer Portal: Created PortalUser Logging

Changes have been made that allow ProPharm to log any changes made by Portal users.

Script Filling: Show Rx Number with Fill Sequence for All Fills during Script Filling

When filling a script, all of the past fills for that script are shown on the left side of the Script Filling screen.

This has been corrected so that all fills will show the full script number (e.g., #0002531-0).

 

Workflow Stages: Change for Requirements with Grouping Number of "0"

When setting up Requirements for scripts to enter a Workflow stage, you can assign each requirement to a specific Grouping number. A change has been made to the way "0" groups are linked to other requirements. "Zero Groups" will now act as "and" requirements for all other groups.

 

Patient Messaging: Added the Ability to Email Patients

The Patient Messaging options can now be set up for emails as well as text messages. A change has also been made to the "Message Patient" Workflow task, allowing users to edit a patient's information from within this Task window.

Solution:

The Drug information will now be shown in a pop-up window so the user can view the drug's settings without leaving the Script Filling screen.

 

(10192) Search Fields: Main Results Not Fully Shown, Secondary Results Too Large

Problem:

When users went to edit a record (e.g., a patient's information) in the Script Filling screen, there was an option to "Create New." However, this option did not work because these new records must be created directly from the maintenance screen.

 

Solution:

The Create New option has been removed from the window that displays when you edit a record from the filling screen.

(10308) Script Filling: After Editing Doctor Information, Doctor DEA Warning Not Removed

Problem:

Sometimes when processing orders, users would receive the warning, "Doctor DEA does not match the DEA from the order." When the user edited the doctor's DEA and returned to filling the script, the warning was still on the filling screen and the user was forced to Save With Warnings.

 

Solution:

After the information has been edited and the warning no longer applies, it will be removed from the Script Filling screen.

 

(10309) Problems Adding Surescripts Doctor, Selecting Clinic

Problem:

Changing the dates on one insurance will no longer affect other insurances.

 

(10414) Home Screen: Widgets Not Draggable when using Internet Explorer

Problem:

When using IE, the tiles (widgets) on the Home Screen could not be dragged to different locations.

(10114) Patient Maintenance: Duplicate Addresses being Saved when Entering a New Patient

Problem:

In the Drug maintenance screen, if users clicked on the Inventory or Pricing tabs, no information was being shown.

(10260) (10240) (10247) Script Filling: Warnings Triggered Incorrectly

Problem:

The following warning messages were being triggered incorrectly:

o"Script Already Filled Today"

o"Previous Fill Not Picked Up"

o"The Doctor name does Not Match the Name from the Order"

o"The Doctor DEA does Not Match the DEA from the Order"

 

Solution:

These warnings will now appear only at the appropriate time.

 

(10248) Script Filling: Script Edits Not being Logged

Problem:

Data logs were not being saved when scripts were edited.

 

Solution:

Script edits will now be logged.

 

(10238) Auto-Print Label on Hold Scripts

Problem:

A Workflow stage can be created to auto-print Hold scripts. Previously, if a script was put on Hold from the Claim Verify window, the script would be marked as being "Out of Workflow."

 

Solution:

Now, when the script is put on Hold, it will trigger a "Script Held" Workflow event, so that it can be handled properly in the Workflow stage.

 

Additional Configuration: To set up an "Auto-Print on Hold" Workflow stage, you can create a stage with the Requirement of "Fill Held" and the Task of "Print Label (Non-Visual)." For more instructions on setting up Workflow stages, see the Workflow Setup chapter.

 

(10239) Claim Overrides: Errors when Trying to Add an Override After a Rejection

Problem: The system did not allow users to add more overrides to a claim that was rejected if the claim already had overrides applied to it. Initial overrides had to be deleted and all overrides had to be entered in one submission.

 

Solution: Additional overrides are now allowed.

 

(10245) Rx Orders: Hard Returns Causing SIGs Not to Display Fully on Labels

Problem: Previously, hard returns were preventing SIGs from being displayed fully on labels.

 

Solution:

Hard returns will now be translated into spaces.

 

(10241) Rx Waiting: Problem with Automatic Patient Matching

Problem:

Patients on orders were not being matched automatically with patients in the database.

 

Solution:

Changes were made to ensure that patients will be matched correctly.

 

(10262) Claims Resubmitted Incorrectly after Script Edits

Problem:

When users edited fields within a script, and the script already had a claim submitted for it, ProPharm would sometimes incorrectly resubmit the claim (even if the changes did not warrant resubmitting).

 

Solution:

Changes have be made to ensure that claims will not be resubmitted when edits are made that do not warrant a new submission.

(10118) Problem with "Add New" Option for Insurance

When users tried to add a new insurance (or doctor, etc.) from the Script Filling screen, they would click on the plus icon to open the Maintenance window. The "Add New" option was being selected automatically in this situation, which caused errors if the user then tried to click on other tabs in the Maintenance screen without entering the new record's information. This has been changed so that, in this scenario, the Maintenance screen will act as if it is in "Edit" mode, allowing users to enter the information as needed without causing errors if all the information is not entered.

 

(10123) Claim Verify Window: Fixup Options for Card Holder ID and Group Number Only Submitting Changes for LAST Insurance

When verifying a claim that uses multiple insurance, the "Fixup" options for Card Holder ID and Group Number were only being applied to the last insurance in the list.

The pencil icon (for editing) that appears in each insurance field on the Script Filling screen was not being shown for Tertiary insurance.

 

(10147) Wrong Workflow Item being Selected in Rx Waiting

There were times when users clicked on an item in a Workflow stage and a different item would load in the filling screen. Changes have been made to the item lists so that the correct item can be selected every time.

A bubble message will now appear at the bottom of the screen when a text message has been sent to the patient.

(10054) "Cancel" and "Refresh" Buttons Not Working when Submitting/Reversing Scripts

When a claim is being submitted or reversed, there are buttons available to "Cancel" the action or "Refresh." These options were not working correctly.

 

(10058) When a Claim is Rejected, ProPharm Should Not Show a Profit

Profits were being shown for scripts with rejected insurance claims. This has been corrected so that "N/A" will be shown in the Profit field if the claim has been rejected.

 

(10061) Claim Verify: Insurance and Profit Fields Not Adjusting when Editing Script

If users edited the insurance information for a script that had been submitted to an insurance provider, the Claim Verify window was not showing the change for the Insurance or Profit fields. This has been corrected so that the updated insurance information will be shown. The profit will be listed as "N/A" until the claim is submitted.

 

(10062) Price Formula Window Not Large Enough

The size of the Price Formula window has been increased so that the information is not broken between two lines.

 

(10066) Claim Verify: Unable to "Hold" Script

When users tried to place a script on Hold from the Claim Verify window, they were receiving errors stating that the "refill" could not be put on Hold (even if it was not a refill but an original script).

The following adjustments have been made to the information that is shown in the Claim Verify window:
