The ‘WannaCry’ ransomware is particularly dangerous as it can spread rapidly across your machine and network shares, encrypting and holding your files at ransom.&nbsp;<br /><br />The ransomware is taking advantage of a vulnerability within Windows that has since been patched by Microsoft. We recommend all users install the latest available Windows Updates to decrease your vulnerability. Running additional virus protection software is recommended, but most of all users should remain vigilant when clicking links or opening attachments from unknown sources.&nbsp;<br /><br />With Front Desk running on more than 8000 machines in over 2000 businesses, I am happy to report that we have yet to see any users infected with this particular ransomware, which we believe is a good sign.<br /><br />That said, we urge our users to remain cautious - Please ensure you are:<br /><ol><li>Using up-to-date virus protection.</li><li>Performing regular Front Desk backups, storing the backup device away from the computer to ensure it isn’t infected and made unusable</li><li>Performing regular Windows Updates.</li><li>Not opening links or attachments from unknown sources.</li></ol>For further information please contact your I.T. support people. update 3 2 1 comment 7520362 We need a part time receptionist for our busy allied health practice in Randwick, NSW: 2017-05-17T04:44:02Z 2017-05-17T04:44:02Z Sarah Welling sarah_welling_7907247 As our&nbsp;<b>part time receptionist</b> you would be the first point of contact with our paediatric clients and their families.&nbsp; Your friendly manner, excellent communication skills, high level of organisation skills and ability to work under pressure need to shine through.&nbsp; Proficiency with practice management software and Microsoft Office Suite is required.&nbsp; Knowledge of MYOB is preferred but not essential.&nbsp; Two days per week. question 0 1 1 create 7520355 Medicare Online and Medicare Easyclaim Service Degradation 2017-05-17T04:23:58Z 2017-05-17T04:23:58Z Timothy tim_7104970 1:50PM ACST: The Department of Human Services has advised Smartsoft that Medicare Online and Easyclaim services are currently experiencing a degradation of service.

Is there any software that communicates with Front desk to avoid double handling payment information?

When planning future rosters etc (which is done away from the reception desk) it is frustrating to have to manually change each practitioner's column size to make the diary fit on the screen plus any time that we change the view eg from whole practice to individual practitioner the column size reverts back to the default sizing which then carries over if we go back to the whole practice diary and we have to resize again.<br /><br />Whilst I am thinking about it, it would also be handy to be able to hide the side column with the calendar etc at times too. idea pending 2 4 2 comment 7444156 Health Fund Only 2017-05-15T07:36:48Z 2017-01-31T22:45:26Z SydSportsMed sydsportsmed In the instances when practitioners charge patients as "Health Fund Only", it would be helpful to have the option (a tick box?) to write-off the difference / balance as we are processing the transaction. &nbsp;<br /><br />At the moment we have to go to the "Transaction" tab and write it off after the transaction is completed - a two-step process that, when it's really busy, sometimes gets missed as staff attend a call or the next patient and forget to go back and do it later. idea active 11 13 7 comment
