Should you want to have information or initials put into a cell for fluids but, not want to have this item billed each time, you can use this workaround.


For this not to happen you must have "Manager permissions" to access the "Settings" menu. From here you will go to your "Parameters" > choose "Fluids" from the section menu, then find the item you wish to edit.


For clinics that are integrated with an EMR, open the item you wish to edit by clicking on the pencil or double click on the item. Once the parameter infobox has appeared, click the "X"  next to the EMR parameter name to delete it, then click "Update" Once you have done this the item will no longer send a billing item to your EMR. 


For clinics that are NOT integrated simply change the billing toggle to "Off" position, then 


Please be aware that any updates you make will also be applied to any patients that are currently on the whiteboard but, be aware these changes might not take effect right away. 



The other thing you should do is to set up "Procedures" so that you can correct the account for your billing. Create a parameter named for fluid and then new bag, therefore using the example above I would call my procedure "Hartmanns New Bag"


Clinics who have integrated EMR: When the box appears for the new item you will find the EMR parameter name for the fluid bag you wish to bill for from the drop-down menu, then give it the Smart Flow name as above. For the example below:

Ezyvet Name: Hartmanns 

Name: Hartmanns new bag

Section: Procedure

EMR Events: On

Then click "Save."



For clinics that are not integrated: Simply create a new parameter under Procedure give it the Smart Flow name as above: For the example below:


Name: Hartmanns new bag

Section: Procedure

Billing: On

Then click "Save."


What will happen now is that you are able to record fluid rate, initials, total volume infused or anything you would like into the cell for fluids each hour without billing but, can directly bill for a bag of fluids from your flow sheet by entering your initials into the cell for the procedure of the same name.
