1.  We have added the capability to change a treatment’s category from the Change Treatment window, thereby moving that treatment from one category to another. The moved treatment will appear at the top of the treatment list for the new category. In a similar manner, we have added the capability to change a user’s group from the Edit User window in order to easily move users from one group to another.

2.  AVImark now displays a warning when a patient is added or changed, if that patient has the same microchip ID as another patient.

3.  You can now select Therapeutic Protocol documents for both diagnoses and problems (from the Diagnosis List or Problem List).

4.  AVImark now supports pictures that are in TIF format. This format is common with image scanner software.

5.  When you move a patient from one client to another, that patient’s pictures are now moved to the appropriate folder also (This is applicable when photos are stored by Client, or by Client, then Patient).

6.  The AVImark auto-payment option now includes payment type of “None”. If this option is chosen, AVImark requires the payment type to be manually selected before the payment can be entered. This is intended to improve accuracy of entering payments of different types.

7.  The AVImark “check-in document” name can now be of any length. It was previously restricted to eight characters.

8.  Several South Africa specific features have been added

9.  You now have the option of having AVImark include applicable tax (rounded to the nearest penny) in the price amounts shown on both the Treatment and Inventory Travel Sheet reports.

10.  AVImark now allows you to change from one patient to another (for the same client) from within the Enter Medical History window. This feature is intended to make entry of medical history for several patients of the same client much more efficient.

11.  The AVImark Time Clock feature now offers the option to synchronize time of day with server using TCP/IP. To use this feature, go to Work with, then Users and Security, then click on the Time Clock menu item, and finally on Setup. In the “Synchronize workstation clock with the Server” section, select the option called “Server IP”, then enter the IP address of the computer that is your server.

12.  The AVImark Healthy Pet interface now exports first, second, and/or third reminders, as requested by user via the Print check boxes in the Documents section of the Work with, Reminders.

13.  The AVImark securable function, “Print Inventory Report”, has been enhanced to include all reports in Work with/Inventory, including the Vendor Report, Travel Sheet, etc.

14.  When you remove a boarding reservation from the AVImark boarding calendar, you can now mark the reservation as “Rescheduled”.

15.  The following fields of rabies vaccination information can now be merged into post cards printed by AVImark (as well as MS Word):

<vacc-date> The date of the rabies vaccination

<vacc-id> The tag number of the vaccination

<vacc-mfg> The manufacturer of the vaccine

<vacc-lot> The vaccine lot serial number

<old-tag> The tag number of the previous rabies vaccination

16.  We now allow you to sort the list of patients in the “Choose Patient” window by Name, Age, Species, Breed, Color, Sex, or Weight. Use the “Sort by” drop-down list in the Choose Patient window.

17.  You can now optionally print the hospital phone number on drug labels. Look for the “Phone no” check box in the “Documents” tab under Hospital Setup. This option is checked by default.

18.  We have added a new merge word for printing patient notes in a Microsoft Word document. It is <animal-notes>. When using this merge word, be sure that it is the only merge word on a particular line (i.e. don’t include this merge word with other merge words or text on the same line of the document).

19.  The AVImark main screen, the “CID”, has been enhanced to support the newer 17” higher resolution monitors that are popular today. The CID can now be expanded by using the mouse to drag either the right edge or bottom edge of the CID outward and downward. If you drag the bottom of the CID downward, more Medical History entries are brought into view. If you drag the right edge of the CID to the right, more data fields for clients and patients are shown, and more columns are brought into view in the Medical History area. You will need to set the resolution of your monitor to 1024 x 768 to take advantage of these features. (Clear your Windows Desktop, then move your mouse over an unoccupied area of the Deskop and use Right-click, then Properties, then Settings to make this change).

20.  The Patient Section of the CID can now be viewed in either of two formats. The new format presents a list of patients for this client, in a manner similar to that way in which Medical History entries are shown. Patient information is shown in the font color matching that patient’s tab color at the bottom of the CID. The new format option is chosen by clicking on the Clients menu on the CID, then selecting the List Patients menu item. Once the Patient List format of the Patient section is chosen, you may select a particular patient to work with simply by clicking on that patient’s line in the list. Note that by dragging the right edge of the CID to the right brings additional patient data fields into view in a manner similar to that of the Medical History area on the CID.

21.  A “splitter bar” has been added between the Patient Section and the Medical History section on the CID. This bar, which appears as a narrow brown horizontal line across the CID just under the patient section, can be moved with the mouse up and down to adjust the relative size of the Patient and Medical History sections. This technique is useful when, for example, you are using the new Patient List option and the client only has a couple of animals. By adjusting the bar upward, you can bring more medical history into view, yet still see information for both patients.

22.  You can now have the “Closing Notation” that you print on the invoice also be printed on the statement. Click the “Print on statement also” check box on the Invoicing page of Hospital Setup.

23.  There is a check box in the Print Inventory Report window that allows you to suppress printing of item cost values on the report. This improves the security of this information when your inventory reports cannot be maintained in a physically secure location.

24.  You can now specify a “Starting form id” for MS Word forms that AVImark creates. This value is used as a auto-incrementing sequence number in order to give each form a unique name. When using forms in a Sidekick environment, each Sidekick workstation should specify its own unique “Starting form ID” value.

25.  AVImark now allows you to merge photographs into MS Word documents using More Stuff data fields of type “Photo”. Note that at this time this feature does not support Photo data fields included in More Stuff Table fields.

26.  The Glossary feature in AVImark now allows you to select multiple glossary entries, in any sequence, to be returned to your notes window. In the Glossary window, if you are using the mouse simply click on the entries you want to choose in the order you want them to appear in your notes. When you have chosen all of the entries you want, click the Continue button. To choose one entry with the mouse, you may simply double-click on that entry.

If, on the other hand, you prefer to use the keyboard, use the up/down arrow keys to position the highlighting bar at the entries that you want to choose, then press the space bar. When all desired entries have been selected, press Enter. If you want to choose only one entry with the keyboard, scroll down to the entry you want, then press Enter.

27.  A new “Client Statistics” button has been added to the Accounting window. Click on this button to view year-to-date and last-year payment and sales figures for this client.

28.  The check box that controls auto-assignment of patient folder numbers has been moved from the Miscellaneous page in Hospital Setup to the Demographics page. A new check box that controls auto-assignment of client folder numbers has been added on this page. Checking this box will cause AVImark to automatically assign the new client a folder number with a value of one greater than the last folder number assigned (or manually assigned by a user for a new client).

29.  An option has been added to the Miscellaneous page in Hospital Setup that allows you to have the Referral Report include all referred activity, even though the client in question may not have been added during the period specified. This allows you to print referrals reports that present totals for all referral business during any period you wish.

30.  AVImark now prints More Stuff data fields on the Treatment Control Log report.

31.  You can now make a boarding reservation for a new patient that is currently not in the AVImark data base. The patient will be automatically added when the patient checks in.

32.  AVImark now interfaces with the Heska ABC lab instrument.

33.  AVImark now provides an interface to NetCom’s Appointment Caller service. Go to the Appointment calendar, choose View, then Daily consolidated, then Print, and finally Send to File. AVImark will produce a comma-delimited ASCII file in the AVImark folder containing the necessary information for NetCom.

34.  Avimark will now allow you to use an Expiration Date on the Change Purchase Order Item Window when receiving a Purchase Order. The expiration date will be automatically updated in the Change Inventory Window on that item.

35.  There is a new option in Hospital Setup on the Reminders tab that is called “passive connection”. This feature is for clinic’s that send their reminders via the internet to Healthy Pet. If your clinic has a firewall installed, then in order for Healthy Pet to properly send the information back to the clinic, this box needs to be checked. If your clinic does not have the firewall installed, and you send reminders via the internet to Healthy Pet, then you don’t need this box checked.
