Tips and Tricks

Q1 2020: MicroMD PM & EMR Tips and Tricks

There are so many interesting tricks when using any software program, and MicroMD is no exception. Some of the following useful tips could help save you time and improve your financial bottom line.

What do you do when you have created your statement file and discover the statement company never got your file?

Do you have to create your statement file all over again?  What if you have updated your patient messages and you are using cycle billing?  Now what do you do?

Don’t panic. First ask yourself this question, “Did I get any errors after I hit print to create the file?”

If the answer is no then all you should have to do is hit the send file icon again.

You see once you create the file it is put into the database path and remains there.  It stays in the database path until the next time you overwrite it with a new file.

If you hit send a second time and the file still does not arrive at its’ destination or you got errors while the file was getting created then it is time to call support.

Remember PRINT creates the file. You don’t want that.  SEND is what you want to send the file that is still sitting there.
