Tip: Practice software cheat to a quicker check-out

July 7, 2016

We slam the 8 key for invoices to save time for receptionists, technicians and veterinarians.

College Avenue Vet in Levelland, Texas, shared how they handle this coding in their practice software via Twitter.How many times a day does the receptionist run around looking for the technician or veterinarian to see if all the charges are entered on a client's invoice before checking out?

In our practice management software (Avimark), we enter code 88888, which codes as "invoice complete," saving waiting time for clients and unnecessary work for the receptionist. Other software may have this built in too. It's a big time saver for us.
