Patient Merge Enhancements | 12.20
Users can now mark the source patient as Inactive and select an Inactive Reason.
Transaction Changes | 12.19
You can now correct a receipt if the amount has been entered incorrectly. This can be done without deletion even if the receipt has been partly or fully allocated.
- Deleting an adjustment will be dis-allowed if it would leave a transaction over allocated, or over adjusted.
- The adjustments screen has been made simpler, and now tells you what the result of the adjustment will be before you make it.
Adjustments can also make use of the reverse allocations capability introduced for the refund wizard. If the amount adjusted is more than the unallocated amount remaining on a receipt, then funds will be retrieved from any invoices that they were distributed to. If adjusting an invoice and the amount remaining is lower than the amount of funds already allocated to the invoice, then they will be pushed back to the receipt.
Where adjustments, refunds, re-submissions, write-offs and discounts occur that would leave a transaction over allocated, the over-allocation will be 'reversed' back to any source transactions from the adjustment.
If deleting an allocation would leave a transaction over allocated then the deletion will not be allowed.
The refund wizard front screen now shows a description for each of the options.
Options that are not available are greyed out. Eg if the patient has a zero balance, the option to refund unused deposits is greyed. There is a new option to Correct a receipt, which is available provided the patient has a receipt on their account.
If you opt to correct a receipt, you are asked to select the receipt you want to change, and then enter the amount that the receipt should have been. You will not have to calculate any adjustments, this will be done automatically by the system.
If the amount is less then before and the receipt has already been allocated, then any shortfall will be reversed from the invoice.
e.g A patient has an invoice for £20. A receipt is entered for £50, so £20 is automatically allocated to the invoice. Unfortunately, the £50 was a typo and the receptionist really meant to type in £5.
With new correction option you can select the receipt and type in the correct amount, £5. The system will calculate the adjustment (-£45) and calculate the £15 allocation, leaving the invoice with the correct open amount.
Sorting on Patients Contacts Tab | 12.18

Some Status fields are coloured to represent different values.
For example, attachment over a certain value can trigger colouring the field red. Note how different values have associated colours in these fields.
Configure Exact to follow your specific order when you enter data
You can specify the order in which you enter data as you go around the mouth, so that EXACT automatically links the data in that order. You can choose the order in which you do quadrants and which direction they should be done. You can choose to enter recession data immediately after each pocket, after each quadrant, or after all the pocket depths have been charted.
EXACT knows the order in which each provider records data in order to correctly apply it. Each provider can adjust this order to suit their preference.
Option to Skip the 8s
You can optionally configure Exact to ignore the 8s in your sequential movement around the mouth.
Element comment field
Each Element has an optional comment field of up to 10 characters.
(Note that depending on the character chosen not all may be visible.
