I8 is a detailed charge report that captures a majority of charge transaction fields. Multiple excel exports give varying levels of information. This master charge report can be used extensively for charge capture info, analytics, and reconciliation purposes.
1. This is the master charge report. All the charge details are captured in this report.
2. Offline Reporting feature included; It is a fairly large report that often pulls bulk data. Users can retrieve previously run five reports from the offline report drop-down without having to rerun the report.
3. Direct Exporting option available to extract the data directly to an excel format without having to wait for the report to load on the screen.
1. The report can be run using Accounting date or DOS. It can even be run using line status and sub-status. Line status is a multi-selection drop-down; you can select multiple statuses using control keys. Again, provider search is a multi-select drop-down. You can also select which provider you want to run it for: encounter provider or the line-level provider.
2. Status and sub status filters can be used to filter patients who have got lines billed to patient responsibility, or those in Collection/Pre-collection. e.g., Select Line sub status as “Pre-collection” and the report will display all patients in Pre-collections.
3. Select VOID from the line status search to exclusively filter Voided lines.
4. Patients paying in Installments can be easily traced by selecting ‘INSTALLMENT’ from the sub status filter.
5. Practices can use this report to pick up a summary of the encounter line activities that occurred during a day, month, quarter, etc.
