Last Updated about a month ago

  • OPD Improvements:
    • Patient Consent Forms: MyOPD now allows Doctors to create Patient consent forms using Microsoft Word. You can design your own forms and import them as templates into MyOPD. Once you create the form, the name of selected patient, Date of birth and other details will get automatically replaced in it. It can then be printed so that you can take a signature of the patient and scan it and attach it to the patient's visit.
      Here is how this works
      :
      • Creation of Consent Form Template:
        • This feature is available under Settings -> Document Templates. You will see the tags that MyOPD Recognizes in the Word document.
        • Create a consent form in Microsoft Word using these tags as place holders. So use #PATIENT_NAME where you want the name of the patient to come in the document or #PATIENT_GENDER where you want the Gender to reflect or #ADDRESS where you want the address of patient to be printed.
        • A complete list of tags to be used is available in MyOPD.
        • Once this document is ready, import the template of document under Settings -> Document Templates using Add New
      • Creation / Printing of Consent Form for a Patient:
        • In the Patient Visit View, a new tab - "Forms" is introduced besides the Past Visit Tab.
        • Open the Forms section.
        • Available Forms will be seen on the left.
        • Select the Form. You will see all the Tags in the form and the values with which they are replaced for this patient on the Right side.
        • Click on Create Document.
        • Microsoft Word or Office application on your computer will open with the newly generated file content values specific for this patient.
        • Review and print the Document from within the Microsoft Word or any other office application.
      • While designing the Word document, make sure you include or exclude your Clinic Letter head in the word document as well. Printing from Word will not obey the Margins etc selected inside the MyOPD Software.
    • On Demand Online Backup: As of now, the online cloud backup of MyOPD happens every 24 hours. We have seen some issues with this when users have to change a system and the backup still has a few hours to go. To solve this issue, we have introduced on demand online backup. Here is how to make it work:
      • Click Support -> On Demand Online Backup option
      • On clicking this option, the software will start to backup your data.
      • Tap the Refresh link at the bottom left corner to know the status of the backup. Once the backup is done, the Online backup message will indicate the same.
      • This feature will be mostly used by MyOPD Support staff while assisting you with changing computer or helping you before formatting the computer etc.
    • Medicine Inventory Change: Add / Remove Medicines to same Inventory Batch
      • There was no option to add units to the same batch of medicine. If a new shipment arrives for the same medicine and same batch, the quantity can now be added to existing quantity with new purchase and selling price.
      • If some medicines from the batch have to be discarded, use the remove option.
    • Medicine & Inventory Reports: New section "Medicines & Inventory" is added under the Patient Advanced Search / Report option. This section gives detailed reporting on:
      • Patient-wise Report: This report gives date wise use of medicines administered to patients.
      • Medicine Usage Details: This report gives total used w.r.t inventory batch. This report is applicable to only those who are using medicine inventory feature.
      • Purchase Details: This report gives date with purchases done. This report is applicable to only those who are using medicine inventory feature.
    • Title to Patient Name: Starting this release, MyOPD allows you to add Mr. / Mrs. / Miss titles to the name. These titles will be printed on prescription and other documents. For existing patients, you can select the title and modify the patient details so that the tiles get printed on future documents.
    • Income & Expense report Improvement:
      • Income and Expense report under Advanced Search Reports -> Accounting and Prescriptions has undergone a major change.
      • View Income against selected Procedure. This was not available earlier.
      • View Income against mode of payment like Cash / Digital / Both.
  • IPD Improvements:
    • Patient Consent Forms: Until this release, IPD consent forms created using MyOPD allowed a preset format. This release allows you to design the consent forms in Microsoft Word so that the forms can have formats as per your requirement.
