Vanda Case Study
· User have invoiced bill on 1st September 2011, but collection report doesn’t reflect the invoice. How is this so?
This is because, billings made on the 1st of September does not equate to the money being collected on the same day. In an event where payment is made on the 2nd of September instead, it will be reflected in the 2nd of September’s collection report. If user wants to see the bill statements for the 1st of September, user should click on daily billing report instead of daily collection report.
· User have unused and empty invoices due to invoices being auto generated. How to solve this?
There’s no need for panic. Empty invoices can be reused for the same patient. System will always check and prompt user whenever there’s any empty invoices to be reused.
2. Payment & Invoice
· User would like to search invoices by name. How can he/she do so?
Invoices and other reports can be searched via pre-set fields. User can search invoices by patient name, invoice date, invoice number and payment status.
3. Printing Error
· User starts business as per usual like any other working day only to discover that printing of invoices, labels and receipts prompts error. How can this be solved?
First of all, check your devices and printers to make sure they are not in offline state. You may want to print a test page to make sure the hardware is functioning well. You may want to restart your system to try re-initializing the hardware connections.
If you are able to test print successfully from device preferences, please open the Vanda printer preferences to double check the printer setting there. If the setting is correct but printing still encounters error, you may need to contact your system administrator or hardware vendor for assistance.
· User turned off system for the weekend. The next working day when she/he comes in, he/she is not able to log in. Why is this so?
