  • Added ICD-10 Cause of Injury Codes to each claim.  To update the ICD-10 cause of injury code use Edit --> Claim Data and fill in the ICD-10 Cause of Injury Code field.  The normal F4 look up will work for this field, but requires a search since the table of possible values is extensive.  If the user enters a * in the search field, all available values will be shown.

  • Updated the Claim information screen and the Claim status report to include ICD-10 allowed condition codes with the existing ICD-9 allowed condition codes.

  • Speed improvements for large look up tables - When using F4 to look up values for large tables (icd9, icd10, CPT) the user is prompted to enter as much of the code or the description of the code that they wish to type then the user is presented with a list of codes and descriptions that match the search term.  All codes that contain the search value anywhere in the code or description are displayed for the user.  Short search values will yield a larger number of records than long search values.  Users can enter * as the search term to retrieve the entire list of values.
  • The Provider Edit screen no longer displays all providers by default.  Users can search for providers by Name, EIN, NPI or Vender numbers.  Short search values will yield a larger number of records than long search values.  Users can enter * as the search term to retrieve the entire list of providers.
  • The CPT Edit screen no longer displays all CPT Codes by default.  Users can search for CPT Codes by Name or CPT numbers.  Short search values will yield a larger number of records than long search values.  Users can enter * as the search term to retrieve the entire list of CPT Codes.
