Heron Quaker Mill includes RX fill info and additional CPT codes

HERON Quaker Mill has an exciting enhancement to include prescription fill information from surescripts. You can now search to see if patients have filled their prescribed outpatient medication prescriptions. The folder "outpatient dispensed medications" includes the modifiers claim, fill, and unknown. Claim indicates when the prescription is sent to the insurance and fill indicates a patient has actually picked up their prescription from the pharmacy.

Previously, CPT codes from the IDX billing system were included in HERON. This release now includes CPT codes from the hospital's O2 billing system!
