What codes do I need to add to my PMS?

Which custom codes are needed in my PMS software

Some things simply cannot be tracked with your PMS.

To work around this, we recommend that you create the following treatment item codes in your system - for use with Complaints, Follow-ups and Referrals.

To add these, go to Location Setup --> Items tab --> choose a category (we suggest miscellaneous) and add the new code as a procedure.

* Codes marked with an asterisk should be created as "Non-Treatment" codes. This is done by selecting the "Non-Treatment" checkbox in the "Other Details" section. A screenshot of this is shown below the table.

Code Description
COMP         * Patient Complaint
TICK            * Follow-up for a patient who didn't book on the day (tickle diary)
TICK7          * Follow-up 7 days later 
TICK14        * Follow-up 14 days later
TICK28        * Follow-up 28 days later
