EasyCare HMS v21.10 Release Notes

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

The chill is in the air (where we are) and our second maintenance release this year is ready for deployments. This is not a mandatory update, so please review the notes and call us if you want the upgrade.



This release features the following key improvements:


REGISTRATION/BILLING

  • Receipt format improvements: Flattened the format so that medication lines fit on one line; charity and discounts are made clearer to the patient. See more.

  • Added MRP on the receipt for newly billed items so the patient can see the discount he/she is receiving from the hospital.

  • Print sticker for inpatients: an option similar to what comes in Registration tab after registering a patient in OPD

  • Patient charts that are checked out automatically are cleared, reducing the size of the check-in list.

  • Removed Card expiry details recording on Card payments

  • Fixed the problem of special characters causing label printing to break
