Update - Version 30.0.6 released.

An update to version 30 has been released to resolve a number of issues users have been experiencing.  The issues fixed are:

  • When patients are actioned (waiting room, attending, billing etc.), some sites have reported that sometimes they will be updated on only one computer rather than all the practice's computers.  With this fix, updates made on one computer for a patient will now correctly display on all other computers within the practice.  We believe this update will resolve some hanging/freezing issues some sites have reported.
  • Delete and Tab keys not working or not working as expected in Messages (IntraMail)Intramail scroll side missing in the edit screen/read display.
  • "List index out of bounds error" exception when billing Assistant Doctor.
  • EasyClaim Store and Forward raises Protocol Error – please contact Zedmed support if you need to fix existing transactions that have not been transmitted.
  • Unable to defer or print a deferred invoice where indication flags have been selected for service items.
