New Procedures for TheraManager Product Releases
Dear Clients & Partners,
I would like to introduce everyone to Lorin
Miller, our Director of Product Development. Lorin
is an industry veteran, working in Health IT for over 20 years. Lorin has drafted the below email regarding our new
TheraManager Product Release procedures.
To TheraManager Customers,
Thank you all for the
opportunity to present myself to you.
As Russ Rothchild mentioned
in his introduction, I bring many years of development and Healthcare
software experience to the TheraManager team. After delivering
products for Wall St. and the Robotics industry, I started in the
Healthcare industry creating and selling a Practice Management system of my
own. I then began working for "the Medical Manager" company
and brought my customers with me. I spent 14 years with Medical
Manager, seeing them through the acquisition by WebMD. I then worked
for a Medical Data Analytics company in the Community Health space for 5
more years before joining the TheraManager team.
Here at TheraManager, I
have introduced a new development paradigm which will bring you regularly
scheduled releases of the product. We are keeping a comprehensive
list of issues, compliance changes and product enhancements which will be
the basis of these releases. As such, if you have suggestions that
should be on this list, please do not hesitate to send them to me at my
email address below.
For those customers on your
own systems; I will be sending an email to everyone as these software
updates are made available. This email will contain "Release
Notes" which describe the changes that have been included in the
software update. By reviewing these notes, you can determine whether
you should take the time to update your systems. Please note that
this decision must be made on a practice-wide basis as all systems in the
practice MUST be kept at the same upgrade level.
For those customers on the
TheraManager "cloud", a similar email will be sent out to
describe the changes that will be made for each of you.
I am happy to announce the
first of these software releases is available now for system updates.
The "cloud" systems are in the process of being
updated. Please read through the "Release Notes" below.
It is my hope
that all of you look forward to these regular updates and that you
all will work with me to create a stronger, more practice efficient
Regards for health and

of "Reason for Visit" option within CPT Codes
Some practices know
the CPT Codes for patient visits in advance. In these cases, the CPT Code
may be entered into TheraManager at the time of booking the appointment. In
other cases, you may only know the patient's stated symptom or "Reason
for Visit". If you like, on the usual CPT Code maintenance screen, you
may now create a new class of CPT Codes, each starting with a space "
". We call this group of codes "Reason for Visit" and they
will appear at the top of the list on the Booking Screen. The user may
optionally select a "Reason for Visit" at the time of booking and
this will later be auto-replaced with the CPT Code after the patient has
seen their clinician.
