Schedule upgrade.

“What I most love about this release is that ‘Consult Lite’, our new web app, increases the accessibility of our software so that the veterinary team can do more and be more efficient – whether it be using the app on a mobile device in clinic, at home or on the go.” Jacque Pollitt, Product Evangelist

New partner integrations

In this release we have introduced two new lab integrations to our growing list of RxWorks partners. The laboratory provider Heska joins with their lab diagnostic service and Zoetis VetScan (previously named Abaxis VetScan) analysers can now send and receive laboratory tests with RxWorks using Fuse. This release also introduces a new integration with Idexx VetConnect PLUS to allow for sending as well as receiving results with their system. These integrations will save you time in practice by speeding up the process for sending and receiving test results.

Enhanced reporting

Registered plans report

A new care plan report is now available which shows all patient care plans that have been registered with a wellness provider. To provide a clear overview of your customer base our new enhanced care plan reporting feature displays the following information ordered by most recent created date: 

Clinic Name  |  Patient Name  |  Patient Care Plan ID*  |  Surname  |  Care Plan ID*  |  Wellness Provider  |  Care Plan Name  |  Patient Care Plan Created Date
Patient Number  |  Wellness Provider Reference  |  Patient Care Plan Start Date  |  Patient Care Plan End Date

*unique RxWorks reference for each patient Care Plan

Web app updates

A key focus for this release was bringing updates to the web app, making the experience more intuitive with additions like client icons and cards to reflect the client rating along with introducing a new web app “Consult Lite” which empowers the staff to add new simple consultation notes on-the-go.

Consult Lite

Consult Lite user interface

The Consult Lite app allows users to add new ‘simple’ consultation notes and review past consultation notes. Selecting the contents of the Consult Details, Total Amount, or Last Modified columns navigates to the Consult Lite page. 

Clients and Patients screen

Clients and Patients screen

The Clients and Patients app allows for quick and easy navigation to Recent, Flagged, New Clients and Patients from one home page. Searching for clients and patients is included in a single search box at the top of the screen, as well as toggles to show or hide patients from all clinics and deceased patients.

The Client & Patient app is also available from the mobile landing page for ease-of-access.

“The new lab integrations will give extra choice for clinics and more options to access your client, patient and basic clinical data means that you can access your data in your hand as you need it. If you or your team haven’t yet tried the RxWorks web slices, I encourage you to have a go and see what opportunities it opens up.” Becki Thomas, Development Manager

Workflow efficiencies

Calendar appointment card – web app enhancement 

The addition of the calendar appointment card within the web app allows easy access to the patient profile picture, behaviour status, gender-specific coloured background, client details, and appointment reason. This update allows a clearer view to key client and patient information when utilising the web app whether working within the practice or remotely.

Peer-to-peer printing

With this release our team focused on bringing new efficiencies to peer to peer clinics, where there is no ‘terminal server,’ with peer to peer printing. This update, including all document and label printing, allows a more manageable and stable method of printing which does not require printers to be installed on every terminal.

Print invoices dialog change

To simplify invoicing processes, we have removed option to generate invoices for all clients from the invoice screen has been removed from the invoice screen. This option was removed as it was identified that reports printed from the client screen should only be relevant to the selected client, rather than all clients. The same report is available from [Reports > A. Till Reconciliation & Banking Lists > 4. Client Transaction Summary] and the option to generate an invoice for all patients for the current client remains.

Received SMS notification

As part of our general enhancements, we have introduced a notification of received SMS’ within this latest release. The New SMS Received notification will appear in the notification area (bottom-left of the window) when a message is received by the clinic and messages can be viewed in Email Manager > Incoming Messages.

Stock transfer report

To build in further efficiencies when it comes to reporting, the stock transfer report can now be filtered by Created Date and User. This update also allows your practice to opt-out users who do not require edit access.
