Below is an overview of features and updates for January 2021.

      JANUARY 2021 UPDATES TO THE INSYNC EMR/EHR SOFTWARE

      Featuring the latest in EMR/EHR technology and practice management software, here are the highlights of our biggest release to date.

      EMR SOFTWARE UPDATES

      METHADONE

      The software now interfaces with the SciLog LabTec® Methadone Dispensing System. The interface allows InSync to seamlessly integrate patient medication management and treatment with the patient’s electronic medical record. This includes sections to record drug-screen results and dosages administered to patients - and a dosage planner for recording initial date for dose, initial dose quantity, primary daily dose, and split dosage details.

      Quick Patient Registration Workflow

      You can now enable the ability to capture patient registrations through your practice's corporate website. You can then approve or decline their registration request after a quick review of their details within the InSync system. The registration form is embeddable and allows you to use your practice logo. 

      FORMS-BASED ALERT TRACKER

      This new “Alert Tracking” module allows you to configure alerts that remind you when required forms have not been submitted by the patient on time. Alerts can be scheduled based on  criteria that include encounter type, admission date, recurring review schedule, payer (as submitted via patient portal), or to complete billable and program-specific notes.

      CPT-BASED CREDENTIAL MANAGEMENT

      In the "Credentials" feature, you can now set up rules to configure valid or invalid CPTs. The list of valid and invalid CPTs will appear on the Treatment Plan screen. When you end an encounter, the system will either restrict or allow it to end with warning.

      ABILITY TO TRACK EXTERNAL APPOINTMENTs IN BED BOARD

      In the Bed Board module, you can now book external appointments for patients. Data from the Bed Board Report can be filtered to book external appointments by External Visit Date, External Visit type and External Visit Status.

      CUSTOM FIELDS IN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

      The software's new Resource Management Configuration feature allows you to add custom fields for recording employee (resource) details. For example, you could add a field for Employee Salary.
