Practice Settings

 

The Practice window of BC Secure contains all of the details that pertain to your Practice's MedicalDirector Blue Chip licence.

 

o       Licencee should be the name of the principal Practitioner i.e. the owner of the licence. This field can be modified without needing to contact MedicalDirector.

o       Practice Name is the name of the practice. It may be the same as the name of the licencee, or it may be different. This information forms part of the key that governs the validity of your registration. If you modify this field, then it will be necessary to contact MedicalDirector to update your registration.

If you modify this field, but fail to notify MedicalDirector of the changes, then your registration will be noted as invalid, the Practitioner Limit will be set to zero. You will then not be able to log into MedicalDirector Blue Chip until the registration has been updated.

o       MedicalDirector Customer No. is your practice's identification number in HCNs Customer Relations Management (CRM) database. This field is read-only, and can only be modified if you are updating your registration.

o       Serial No. is your practice's MedicalDirector Blue Chip serial number. With the prefix BCP, it also forms your Minor ID, if you transmit bulk claims using Medicare Online. This field is also read-only, unless you are updating your registration.

o       Practitioner Limit is the number of Practitioners you may have in your MedicalDirector Blue Chip system. This field can only be modified in the process of updating your registration, in conjunction with MedicalDirector staff. Increasing your Practitioner limit will incur a fee.

o       Tenant Limit is the number of tenant practitioners you may have in your MedicalDirector Blue Chip system.

o       Registration Expiry refers to the date on which your Service Licence Agreement is due to be renewed. This field can only be updated as part of the process of updating your registration, and must agree with the matching field in MedicalDirector's CRM database.

o       Indicate whether you want user passwords to expire, and then set the expiry interval (a minimum of 30 days is offered, with increments of 30-day periods available, to a maximum of 360 days).

o       The Modules check boxes indicate which of the add-on modules have been enabled for your MedicalDirector Blue Chip installation. Modules include:

         MedicalDirector Blue Chip Reporter - a customisable reporting program that outputs to MS Excel;

         BC Reporter - an easy-to-use reporting module that has been designed to complement and extend the reporting capability provided by MedicalDirector Blue Chip.

         Background Services - the means by which you can make Blue Chip print reports in the background, allowing you to keep using the program while you wait for a report to be printed. These settings can only be changed as part of updating your registration.

 

o       The coloured light indicates the validity status of your registration. A green light indicates that your registration is Valid; a yellow light indicates that your registration has been modified, but has not been verified yet; a red light indicates that your registration is Invalid.

o       If your registration is invalid, then you will need to contact MedicalDirector as soon as possible, because it will be impossible to log into MedicalDirector Blue Chip until the problem has been rectified.
