When the parameter's Billing is turned to ON, every time there is an entry into the flowsheets cell the item will be added to the client's' invoice.
NOTE: If you do not wish to bill for an item that is checked off on the Flowsheet (e.g. if you are using the patient's own medication), then please follow instructions found HERE).
When entering eye drops or ointments, we recommend entering the concentration as follows:
Go into Settings - Parameters and Add New Parameter:
Fill in the medication name (please put concentration first)
Choose Medication from the drop-down menu named Section
Enter the Concentration as 1 inch/inch, 1 cm/cm or 1 drop/drop as required
Make sure, you then set the billing toggle to ON (or set events to YES if using integrated PIMS/EMR)
Eye medications can now be added to a patient's Flowsheet, dosed as to prescribe number of drops or volume you would like per eye. Here are some examples of how you will add drops and ointments to your flowsheet:
Make sure concentrations are set up as described above (1 inch/inch, 1 drop/drop, etc.)
Enter the desired route of administration
Making note of what concentration you entered in the steps above, enter the dosage as required (e.g. 1 drop per eye). Remember, SmartFlow will learn from you, if the part of the body you require is not listed, then just type it in the box and it will be saved for next time.
Choose how you want it to appear on your Flowsheet
Make sure you set the billing to ON:
So that on the Flowsheet they appear as:
NOTE: According to how Concentration settings work, SmartFlow usually sends the second unit of measurement to your PIMS/EMR. For example, let take Insulin which is mapped accordingly and should be sent to ezyVet. You'd like it to be measured by Units but when you look at your ezyVet settings you see ml:
To have Units be sent to ezyVet instead of ml, we recommend reorder the units of measurements for the Concentration in the Insulin parameter settings so that the desired unit is second:
