Genie Solutions fully compliant with PCEHR
Genie Solutions has released version 8.3.4 of its practice management software, which includes full HI Service integration and the ability to upload shared health summaries and event summaries to the PCEHR.
The company can also produce specialist and referral letters in CDA format and is planning to complete formal testing for this functionality in November.
Genie's managing director, Paul Carr, said the next version of Genie will include the integration of eRx Script Exchange. Genie is already integrated with the other major electronic prescription service, MediSecure Script Vault, but will now offer both services to users, he said.
The company has also been working for some time with electronic messaging provider HealthLink to integrate secure message delivery (SMD) capability into the software and this is almost finished, Dr Carr said. “This will be the final step in making Genie fully compliant with the eHealth program.”
Other major changes in version 8.3.4 include an added option in user preferences for Mac users to use Apple Mail for letters only. Checklists and letter templates will now be downloaded by web service rather than FTP.
The company has also updated the graphing module, meaning values are now displayed on the graphs, legend changes size automatically based on text size and x-axis labels have been rotated to be more visible.
It has also ironed out a few bugs, including fixing the appointment book selection logic when there are appointments beginning before the practice start time and the provider's interval is different from the global interval.
