11/3/2020 - Vidyo service interruption reported

Vidyo has reported an issue with users unable to join online meetings.  They are working to identify and resolve the issue as quickly as possible.  For now, please switch over to using the Zoom platform for online video sessions.  We will continue to monitor the status updates from vidyo and keep you updated as new information becomes available.
 
To launch an online session using Zoom:
1.  Close down your web browser (google chrome) completely so there aren't any windows open.
2.  Check to make sure you don't have Vidyo desktop or zoom open.  If you do go ahead and close them.  If you aren't sure, you can reboot your computer (shut down and restart).
3.  Open google chrome and follow these steps to clear your browsing history.
4.  Login to Therasoft as you normally would and go to your calendar
5.  Click on the camera icon for your session, and when prompted select the option for Zoom and start the video session.  
 
If the session doesn't launch in zoom you might have to delete the appointment from the calendar, and re-add it as a new appointment.  Another option would be to use the Therasoft mobile app.
 
We apologize for the inconvenience.  We are closely monitoring the updates from Vidyo and will notify everyone as soon as they let us know its fixed and we've tested it on our side to make sure.  If you have questions or need help feel free to enter a support ticket or give us a call 888-435-8203
 
 
Thank you,
Therasoft Support Team

Vidyo issues 11/03/2020

Good morning Therasoft users, It looks like the Platform Vidyo is having issues and not Therasoft.

I just got a notification from them stating they are working on it and should be resolved soon, in the meantime please use the platform zoom until further notice.

 

 

Therasoft 10/17/2020

Good Morning Therasoft Family,

We did deploy some new changes today for example we added a brand new face to the client portal.

Here is the link, Click here

We did make some updates and added a new SEC button which we will then work with this week and test, then if you are interested in a faster more efficient way to get secondaries done please submit a ticket and we will get that added for you. We will get you added to our list once we have completed testing we will notify you after you have submitted a ticket that we have activated the lifesaver SEC button

Here is the link, Click here

Thank you for being patient with us this last month as we were adding a new server as well and did not deploy any changes, we should be back to normal operations of adding fixes and updates as needed.

We have spent endless hours this last week making sure that everything is loaded will work when its deployed, if you find that Therasoft is slow at first that is normal during deployment, and new changes once the feature loads you will be back to normal in the system if you come across anything please submit a ticket to us and we will look into this right away.

We apologize about our response times as we have been trying to stabilize the system and get the features that you like added to the system, we will spend the next week notifying you that we have made your changes requested, although we like to make every change that you would like sometimes we are just not able to do right away or not at all we think of the greater good of all customers before we create something new.

We will be working on a video of the Client portal so when your clients access the site it will have a brief overview of the things they can do, we will let you know when that is live and ready to go, we thought maybe this would help alleviate all the questions the clients might ask you, and free you up to do the things you love Therapy!

We have updated more features and we will be sending out another message of all the things we have done in the past few weeks soon.

Thank you for being the most outstanding customers a company could ask for!

Resolved Therasoft being slow

Therasoft Family,

We are aware that the system might be a bit slow and we are working to get it resolved we have called in the specialist to get this up and going, again sometimes when we add new things to the system since we are live 24/7 we do have side effects. We are investigating exactly what the issue is at this very moment.

My apologies for the inconvenience, we are working hard to get you back to your normal tasks.

Resolved Zoom

Zoom meetings requiring a passcode

 

https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360033559832-Meeting-and-webinar-passcodes

 

Here are the steps to give the password to the patient.

 

You will click on the Invite button and it will give you the code I would suggest to send the invite at that time for the patient to login to the meeting.

 

We are looking into a waiting room option as well.

Please try to use this URL to access Emdeon you might have to try this on Internet explorer as well as that is their preferred browser.

Vidyo and Mac users

Therasoft Family,

 

We have enabled the ability for a few days as we work with Vidyo on the Mac problem with launching the session if you are using a PC please continue to use the Vidyo Platform as it is working appropriately unless you have a dedicated zoom room.

This will help our users that need to use zoom today because of a mac problem be able to start a session.

On your mac if you still want to use Vidyo you will have to do these steps each time before you start a session.

You can disable the download for Vidyo by deleting the Vidyo icon on your mac dock right click on the Vidyo icon and close it and then click on the video icon on the calendar reinstall the Vidyo app and then it will work remember to close it each time after the session, however we do suggest to use zoom until this is resolved.

Thank you for understanding as we are working with the Vidyo platform outside of Therasoft.

 

 

 

 

Setting up new locations

Hi Therasoft Family,

 

I have had several companies this week contact me with claims problems

 

Here is what is happening is when a new location is setup under the setup tab in Therasoft the user is inserting the Ind NPI and not the Group NPI if you are credentialed with your group make sure that the location has your group NPI inserted on this page, the only time you will use the Ind NPI is if that is how you are credentialed as an ind provider and not a group, the personal NPI is inserted on the Setup tab, Counselor/ Staff tab.

 

I see this most common when a new location of Telehealth is created.

 

So if you are having claims problems with rejections of NPI problem make sure to check your location tab under setup and then also your counselor page.

 

 

Hope you have a wonderful week!

 

 

09/11/20 - SEC Button New Feature

Therasoft Family,

 

Good Morning,

You may see a new Lifesaver button today SEC at the top of your screen, we are working on this new feature and its not fully functional as of yet, we are working on a way for you to be able to queue up secondary claims from one page the ability to print out the HCFA and if there is an EOB in the system then you will be able to print those all out on one page.

 

The secondary's will only show if there has been a payment posted from the primary insurance.

We also added the ability to see all the Secondaries that have not been sent with a flag just to be able to see the queue as well.

 

Once it is fully functional we will send out another Announcement.

 

Thank you for bearing through this with us as this feature can only be deployed live and built from the live site to enhance this feature.

 

09/03/20 - Zoom

We have made some changes to our video platform.

We have changed the platform for our users everyone will be enabled on vidyo only, due to the fact we have had so many users that are having issues with booking the room. 

If you are wanting to use zoom you will have to use a dedicated room and the cost is $49.00 per month.

If you have a dedicated room already there will be no changes.

if you have any questions please submit a ticket to us.

 

Thank you.

Scheduling Online Appointments
  • We made a change in Therasoft that will affect how you schedule online individual sessions.  The option to mark a session as being an Online Session has been added to the Individual tab
    • Adding this option to the Individual appointment type tab eliminates the need for the Online tab so the Online tab will be removed from the appointment screen in the next update. 
    • Moving forward, when scheduling online individual sessions please make sure to use the Individual tab and check mark the Online Session option. 
    • Sessions already scheduled using the online tab do not need to be moved or re-entered using the Individual tab.  There is no action needed for existing online appointments already scheduled.



 

Email with Link to Join

To send the appointment email with the link to join simply click on the video camera icon on the calendar.  This will trigger the email to be sent to the client with the join button.

When you click on the camera icon you will see a message come up that asks if you want to start the online session, click Yes, and then close the video window.

You do not have to wait until the start of the session to click the camera icon.  You can click the camera icon the night before the session, the morning of the session, an hour before the session, or the start of the session.

Because insurance usually requires legal gender, we have separated these two items.  Legal gender is what needs to show on the claim, Preferred Gender is how the client defines themselves.  This field is triggered by the Gender Selection checkbox on the Company Info page (bottom left under Setup\Company Info).  We have tried to be as inclusive as possible.  If there is something missing, the Other selection will bring up a box to specify.

 

3.  Additional Sexual Orientation Options!

Again, we have tried to be as inclusive as possible. If we need to add something let us know.

 

4.  Guardian option in the Relationship drop-down for Family!

We have added a Guardian option in the Relationship drop-down on the family tab of the client's registration page.

 

5.  Number of Sessions!

The current month's and last two months number of sessions (that have been marked attended) will now display at the top right of your screen.  Admins will see the total for the company, users without the Admin flag will see their personal numbers.  The last two months number is the total of the last two months.

 

6.  Diagnosis field now available on the pre-registration page!

The Diagnosis code is now able to be entered on the Pre-registration page if needed.
