         The Quick Reports menu and functions have been updated to accommodate the revised OHS Eligibility for Refit guidelines. Mail-merge scripts have also been updated.

HearAid Version 5.0.5.6010

Modified in this update:

         A short-term bug in the Medicare on-line processing system in the first week of October 2014 produced response files which did not meet the published structure specification, which meant downloaded response files could not be reconciled. This update resolves this problem without affecting compatibility with correctly-processed response files.

         A new sub-menu OHS PDF Files has been added to the Quick Forms menu. This menu will display a list of any and all PDF documents in the \HearSoft\HearAid 5.0\Reports\Quick Forms folder and clicking on a menu item will display the form in the default application for PDF documents (typically Adobe Reader). This added feature means users can download PDF documents from the OHS web site and display them when needed

HearAid Version 5.0.5.6002

Modified in this update:

         A default Scanned Documents folder is created when the program runs for the first time and scanned external documents will be placed in this folder unless the user specifies otherwise

         A default file name is now offered when scanning a document to an external file; the default name is based on the form document_pk.client_pk, which will therefore be unique for each document and will assist with identifying files should the need arise.

Note: The default file name is not the same as the document description

HearAid Version 5.0.5.6001

Modified in this update:

         The e-Claims|Reconcile work-area has been modified to improve the load speed when there are many response files in the EClaims folder. Users will now also be able to find and reconcile response files downloaded to other folders such as the user's Windows Downloads folder, without having to move those files into the EClaims folder

         The Default Quick Report and Default Quick Form lookup lists in Tools|Options|Database & Analysis now include all the available items on the Quick Reports and Quick Forms menus. These lists could previously only be modified by manually editing the HearAid5.ini file

HearAid Version 5.0.5.6

Modified in this update:

         The e-Forms functions have been removed and an HSO button has been added to the main toolbar to simplify connection to the OHS Hearing Services On-line portal. Users can specify a machine-specific connection string to the portal, using either the default browser or a path to a specific secure browser such as the USB AUSkey Browser. The connection string is also automatically copied to the Windows clipboard when the button is clicked.

         Hearing Services On-line Client Authority and Hearing Services On-line Medical Certificate have been added as Quick Forms

         The Search window has been modified to improve the display of search results and to automatically search both phone numbers whenever a phone number criterion is specified

         The Tools|Options|e-Claims section has been renamed to Tools|Options|Office of Hearing Services which holds all the OHS-specific settings, including the HSO connection string

         Synchronise will now synchronise the Address Book as part of Data synchronisation instead of Lists synchronisation

         Users can now specify a default number of weeks prior to the Service Date for fitting claim fitting dates

         The Practice Details section has been removed from Tools|Options; all Practice and Contractor details are stored in Lists|Practice & Providers

         Data fields for earmould/custom shell style, material, tubing, venting and wax control and RIC receiver warranty expiry date have been to the Fittings table. Creating Fittings from Orders will populate the relevant fields automatically

         Data fields for 3-FAHLs have been added to the Claims table; these fields will be automatically populated from the Client Details record when a claim is added, so it is important to update the 3-FAHLs in Client Details before creating new claims following a test

         Printing a Document stored in the database has been enhance to use the default Windows program for JPEG documents

         Clicking the Scan Document button will now prompt the user to nominate either scanning to an external file or into the database.

If scanning to an external file the user is prompted to enter a folder and file name as the file destination and that information is automatically stored in the Document Path field

         A new option has been added to the Appointments Options to display the time in the subject line of each appointment

         Calendar Resources Layout settings have been moved to their own configuration file for each user profile. Users will need to reset their customised resource layouts the first time they use the new program update
