Note about Created Date 

In reports run by created date, the created date reflects the user’s computer’s time zone. In cases where a different time zone leads to a different day (e.g., biller and practice are in different time zones), you must change the user’s computer’s time zone to generate the correct date.

Report Sources

Report Categories Description
Charge-based Reports Reflect the data available in the on-screen ledgers. These are point-in-time reports, resulting in different values for the same time period when generated at different points in time. Use these reports to review service line information (e.g., Procedure Code, Date of Service, Charge Amount, Adjustments, etc).
  • Report Type: Charge and Production
  • Data updated within 30 minutes
Payment-based Reports Reflect the payment-level details viewable in Payments pages. Payment reports are best suited for balancing to the bank account as they include all payments posted (e.g. applied, unapplied, insurance, patient, capitation, etc). Charge-based and Transaction-based reports only reflect applied payments. These are point-in-time reports, resulting in different values for the same time period when generated at different points in time (note: if the payments from the prior time period are not edited the amounts will not change).
  • Report Type: Payment
  • Data updated within 30 minutes
Transaction-based Reports Reflect all AR balance-changing events (e.g., charge activity, apply/unapply payments, write-offs, etc.). For balancing purposes, it is important to understand transaction reports only report the activity of applying and unapplying payments from a claim. The amounts do not change when comparing reports for the same time period at two different points in time when reporting by the transactions Created Date or Ledger Date if the month has been closed.
  • Report Type: Transaction
  • Data updated within 30 minutes
Combination Reports There are various types of combination reports available (e.g., Monthly Financial Summary, Practice Month End, and Goals). Reports are combined from different categories to help consolidate important data.
Reporting data is as of the previous day or is generated monthly. 
How do I know which report category the report is? After selecting the Report Name in the reporting tool, the description text indicates if the report is a charge, payment, transaction, or combination report. If the description does not indicate any of these, it is a combination report.
 

To Navigate to Reports

From the Practice Management menu bar, hover your cursor over Reports and click Reports. The reporting tool opens in a new tab. Depending on your browser configuration, you may have to accept pop-ups.

Formatted Reports

All accounts receivable (AR) summary reports (Report Type = Accounts Receivable) are formatted reports. Formatted reports are printable and not designed to be manipulated in Excel.

You can select a different reporting period and regenerate data. Note: The reporting period is not required on the Reports home page for AR summary reports. Therefore, if you do not select a reporting period on the home page, this option will not available on the report page. Date Type remains the same as what was selected previously.

Data Tables

Data tables are essentially read-only on-screen spreadsheets that can only be exported.

  • Contain a limited number of columns so that they are printable.
  • Have predetermined grouping and totaling (e.g., charge amount).

For greater control over the data generated into a report, select the analysis grid equivalent of the report (e.g., use the Transaction Details – Analysis Grid instead of the various transaction summary data tables).

  1. To save the report as a bookmark, click Save Bookmark.
