Note: You will have been warned about duplicate items at the time of their creation. For example, you would be alerted in the Point of Sale screen if a patient was invoiced for two consultations on the same day. Duplicate items will therefore have been authorised at the time they were made.

You can make changes to each schedule by right-clicking on it. Although statuses will automatically update depending on your actions (see below), you can also change the status manually using this menu.

Sending schedules

Schedules (batched invoices) need to be sent to the appropriate payors.

Schedules 7If the payor accepts electronic schedules, you can select the schedule at click on Send in the Actions bar.

For payers who need a physical copy you can select the schedule and click on Print. You are able to both send electronically and print the schedule (for example, if you would like to keep hard copies).

Details of the electronic file are saved in a special log file. If the file is successfully sent, this will appear in a message and the status of the schedule will be automatically updated. You can no longer add to this schedule.

If the file has not sent successfully, you will be alerted.

A new open schedule will be created when the next appropriate invoice item is created.
