Combined Payments

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Last night we had a major Praktika release. Among various new features and fixes the most awaited one is certainly a facility to make combined (family) payments in one go.

To make a combine payment you first need to establish a relationship between the persons in the Gurantors unit.


Once the relationships were established you can make a single combined payment from any of the included person’s appointment.


Complete the appintments



Open an appointment and press the Combined Payment button


At the top of the popup screen select the appointments you want to include in your payment


Enter payment either manually or using the HICAPS terminal. The paid sum will be distributed between the selected appointments.

Treatment Type Colouring

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

On top of specifying the treatment type in the appointment blocks, you can now pre-paint scheduler areas  to create Treatment Type segments in your day as advised by a few Practice Management Consultants (e.g. Prime Practice).

For that, paint the area and specify the Treatment type label. The type is not prescriptive and does not determine the appointment type. It simply provides your with a prompt to facilitate visibility of pre-defined treatment type blocks.

Praktika at ADX11 Expo in Melbourne

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

This month we will be participating in the ADX11 Dental Expo to be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre (Jeff’s Shed), Southbank.

The dates are September 16-17, 2011

It is a good chance to see us offline and ask all those burning questions about Praktika in person.

We also have a great promotion: each subscription to Praktika during the exhibition and two weeks after it will be awarded with a free iPad2.

Our Booth number is 29.
