Now more than ever, it is important to utilize your staff to their fullest potential.

Let us help you with some of the more-tedious PM tasks in NextGen so your staff can focus on the more important items. Join us while we demo two NextGen Add-On Products that aid in automating these tasks and see how your practice could save time and effort on PM and billing activities.
Unapplied & Deposit Manager will save your staff time whether they’re working general unapplied amounts or using the unapplied buckets to manage deposits. For general unapplied credits, you pick the rules you’d like to use to apply the balances. Do you only want matching amounts, partial amounts, or would you like to over apply to produce a credit balance to be refunded? Additionally, if you’re cleaning up co-pays, you can specify the exact amounts that the system will apply down to the encounters regardless of balances. Unapplied & Deposit Manager is built to automate a majority of the work required for encounter and account unapplied balances. For practices who keep deposits against future services in unapplied, you can map the transaction code used to post the payment to future services by a combination of Service Items and/or Modalities. The deposit will automatically be drawn down for its intended use as the patient has those specific procedures in the future. Unapplied & Deposit Manager is designed to save your staff valuable hours whether the need is to clean up unapplieds, simplify the ongoing handling of unapplieds, manage deposits, or all of them!
Multiple Encounter BillingManager makes the process of creating multiple encounters for a single patient visit more efficient. It is ideal for practices that require billing staff to enter/exit multiple practices to enter different charges such as professional charges, ambulatory surgery center charges, anesthesia charges, etc. for a single patient visit. This add-on tool enables billing staff to enter all the encounters and charges from just one screen.
