Update - Version 30.2 released.

Zedmed Version 30.2 is now available.  This release contains numerous performance improvements, bug fixes and introduces application support for some exciting new functionality coming soon to Zedmed.  Details of the release are below.

Performance and Usability

  • Added Auto-Save functionality to Clinical.  Open patients will be able to be re-opened if the Application did not close correctly. Encounter details (including notes) are now saved every minute.
  • Fixed a sporadic hanging transaction issue caused sometimes when checking access permissions or updating the cancellation waiting list.
  • Improved performance of Intramail in Office

  • The AHPRA number is now sent to MediSecure for SafeScript.

Doctor's App Security Management

  • Security has been a major consideration in the development of the upcoming Doctor's App, which is coming soon for iOS and Android users.  The 30.2 update contains key setup and security features required for Zedmed to be able to securely connect users to the app, including :
    • A new field in Practice Settings to capture an API gateway key.
    • A 'Mobile Phone' field added to User Details.  This is used to set the destination number for Two-Factor Authentication of the app user through the use of an OTP (One-Time-Password).
    • Added facility to create and manage App access tokens to Edit Staff Member screen.  This will allow a practice to control whether users have access to information through the Doctor's App or not.
