Recent Updates for DELPHI32

This page is an attempt to convey to our existing 6600+ customers (and potential customers) that we actually listen to your input and modify the software according to your individual and group needs.  Our software not only meets your existing needs, but continues to evolve in dealing with the ever-changing mental health care profession. 

As you look at each of the major enhancements below, please understand that many minor changes take place between each cool/new feature.  Minor changes are modifications that usually apply to a small subset of customers with unique local, state, or insurance-specific issues.  Major enhancements make the list below.  Minor enhancements do not make the list.

If you would like to download the latest version of DELPHI32, please go to the Downloads page.

ISSUE / ADDITION

SOLUTION

DATE COMPLETED

An update of about a dozen new ICD10 codes is now available.  These new codes are in use as of October 1st, 2016.

After downloading the latest version of DELPHI, you can import these codes by going to the Setup Menu -> Diagnostic Codes and selecting "Import new Codes" in the lower right corner of the screen.

Updated September , 2015
The final release of the ICD10 update is now available.

This is a CRITICAL update, and all existing customer are required to update to the latest version.

ICD10 Checklist is available by clicking here, however, these instructions will automatically display upon starting DELPHI.

Updated August 17th, 2015
APPOINTMENT REMINDERS via cell phone text or email are now available.

For the time being, please call us for help in setting up this feature.  Each appointment reminder costs 10 cents.

Special Thanks to Kim from Tallahassee, Florida.

Added July 6th, 2015
DELPHI now allows you to import the ICD-10 diagnostic codes into your existing set of diagnostic codes.  However, these codes do not go into effect until 10/1/2015.  The use of the new diagnostic codes on your insurance claims before 10/1/2015 will cause your claims to be DENIED.

However, if you choose to import the newer ICD-10 codes, you will simply be adding them to your existing list of ICD-9 diagnostic codes - which in no way forces you to use the new codes.  We are providing this capability to simply satisfy your curiosity and/or provide you with a reference between the old and new codes for the next year to help you with the transition on 10/1/2015.

Added September 26, 2014
This relates to the mouse-wheel.  When opening the Client Information screen, the procedure code was automatically highlighted.  If you accidentally rolled your mouse-wheel, the procedure code might change without your direct knowledge.

Thanks to Brandy from Florida.

Improved July 30, 2014
When generating "Financial History" statements, we used to only show those sessions that made up the balance.  We have changed this statement to require a date range, which will cause all sessions within that date range to appear (even if they have been paid off) along with any other session that the client still owes money for.

Thanks to Bob from Oregon.

Improved July 3, 2014
New item added the the CMS (02/12) claim form.

Certain insurance carriers are requiring the "qualifier" next to BOX 15 of the new CMS (02/12) to be filled out. 

This topic is similar to the item below about BOX 14, but there are some subtle differences that are important to understand and that cannot be quickly explained here.  Feel free to give us a call so we can explain how to make this work.

Thanks to Elaine from Massachusetts for gently prodding us to get it done.

Added June 15, 2014
Fixed an issue when searching multiple practices on certain networks.

Thanks again to Suzanne from Washington, and Lisa from Oregon.

Improved May 12, 2014
New item added the the CMS (02/12) claim form.

Certain insurance carriers are requiring the "qualifier" next to BOX 14 of the new CMS (02/12) to be filled out. 

This can be completed by going to the Setup Menu -> under Insurance Carriers and editing the individual insurance carrier in include the Box 14 Qualifier to contain a value such as "431".

The Box 14 - Qualifier is now shown in the Client Information Screen under Insurance Coverage.  If you want Box 14 - Qualifier to contain a value, you must enter it here.

Thanks to our Northeastern Customers (this is starting to happen in the Midwest also, so everyone should begin expect this new behavior)

Added May 8, 2014
Fixed an issue when previewing claims from the session history where the image of the NEW CMS (01/12) form was not being drawn correctly.

Thanks to Lisa from Washington

Improved April 22, 2014
Attention billing companies and multi-practice users.

There is a new feature in the Help Menu called "Search Multiple Practices" which allows you to search ALL of your practices for a Client Name.  This is very useful in locating a client when you don't know who their provider is, and when that client is located within another practice.

Thanks to Suzanne from Washington

Added March 20, 2014
When scheduling an appointment, DELPHI has a nice feature used to populate the event message with anything you want, such as phone numbers of the client.  However, it previously pulled this information from the client that was highlighted on the main Client List.  This turned out not to be good...

Now, the event message is blank when you schedule an appointment, BUT, will populate with the information specific to the client you 'Assign' and/or 'Record a Session' from the appointment.

Thanks to many of you who pointed out the error in our original logic.

Improved January 30, 2014
Each time an appointment is modified in the scheduler, DELPHI now adds the user name, date, and time.  This information is automatically added to the last line of the event/appointment message.

Thanks to Donna from Illinois

Improved January 30, 2014
Added the Deductible information to the Payment Screen next to insurance coverage and co-payment information.

Thanks to Kim from Connecticut

Improved January 15, 2014
Fixed the issue of automatically setting the Managed Care Treatment dates to a more comfortable date range.

Thanks to Kim from Connecticut and Mardelle from Washington. 

Improved January 14, 2014
Added the new CMS 1500 (02/12) insurance billing form to DELPHI.  The "drop dead" date for this requirement appears to be April 1, 2014 - with some insurance carriers adopting it as soon as January 6, 2014. 

This form is called the "NEW CMS" form within DELPHI and is to replace the existing "CMS" form.

We'll keep you posted of any other developments.

Added January 2, 2014
Added the VIDEOS to the software program itself as a Main Menu choice rather than requiring you to visit the web site for viewing. Added December 4, 2013
Added the new PGF file format for participants in the OHIO MEDICAL GROUP.  The cost for this is $100/year Added August 12, 2013
Increased the speed of the scheduler Improved April 4, 2013
The "Source of Payments" has been added to all Activity Reports.

Can't remember who "forced" us to do this, but if you let us know, we'll give you credit here.

Added January 17, 2013
The new 2013 CPT Procedure Codes are now included in DELPHI. Added December 18th, 2012
The insurance queue loads 5 times faster. Improved November 16th, 2012
Improved the Printing of Scheduler Views.  Specifically Daily, Work Week, Weekly, and Monthly.

Thanks to Zoe from Michigan.

Improved October 1st, 2012
Financial History in Date order regardless of the order in which you enter your sessions.

Thanks to Lisa from Oregon.

Improved September 15th, 2012
Holidays Highlighted in Scheduler.  They appear in RED on the calendar and when you hover your mouse over a red date, a popup appears telling what the holiday actually is.

Thanks to Melinda from California.

Added August 7th, 2012
Coming Soon...   Multiple statements addresses. 

DELPHI will soon allow you to have a single statement created for multiple recipients.  For example, if you have a client named Johnny Doe Jr., you might want to print a statement to be sent to the mother at one address, the father at a different address, and another mailed to an attorney. 

Thanks to Peter from Oregon, and Korinne from Utah.

Work in Progress Work in progress.
Scheduler Speed Issues.

If you scheduler is taking too long to load, it is because you are sitting on top of tens or hundreds of thousands of appointments from years ago.  

DELPHI now has a scheduler cleanup utility that will get rid of unnecessary appointments.  In Jackie's case, (below) we were able to get the scheduler to load in 10 seconds rather than over 1 minute.

Thanks to Jackie from Michigan.

Added May 24th, 2012
Electronic Medical Records (Notes) - In the past, DELPHI would "append" your popup choices at the END of all notes.

We finally provided you with the ability to insert your popup choices at the cursor position within the note.

Thanks to Kevin from Massachusetts.

Improved May 3rd, 2012
Scheduling

Although the DELPHI scheduler is very nice, some customers prefer to use an online scheduler such as Google Calendar.

DELPHI allows you to launch your web scheduler instead of our scheduler.

This feature is located in the Setup Menu under Printer/Technical

Thanks to Steve from North Carolina.

Added April 15, 2012
Sticky Notes behave a little more intuitively.  Several customers complained about them getting in the way and not being able to move them and /or close them.

Thanks to the several hundred customers that "gently" pointed this out. 

Improved March 22, 2012
Statements - In the past, multi page statements would repeatedly print a header AND footer.  This caused a waste of paper for statements that included a large date range.

This feature has been requested by many people for quite some time.

Sincere and special thanks to Lisa from Oregon who has been waited too long for this obvious improvement.

Added February 28, 2012
Super Report Export to spreadsheet - Previously, the export of the super report to Excel was limited to a width of 7 inches.

We expanded that to 4 feet.  This is somewhat technical in nature, but is very useful for exporting DELPHI data for use with other software.

Thanks to V J from Portland, and Ken from Eugene.

Added January, 13, 2012
Deductible is now listed in the patient insurance information screen. Added December, 3, 2012
Automatic posting of client overpayments to Advances.

This is a huge (but subtle) improvement to DELPHI.  When recording sessions, you have the ability to also post a client payment for that session.  However, this can result in an overpayment of that session if you are not paying attention to what you are doing.

Take the following example:  Let's say you record a session for $100 and you have instructed DELPHI that the client responsibility for that session is $20.  At the same time, you decide to post a $30 payment against that session.   

Now, DELPHI will accept the $30 client payment, however, we will post only $20 against the session.  The remaining $10 will be posted against an advance.

This is cool because it prevents you from overpaying sessions.

Thanks to Charles from Tennessee.

Added November 22, 2012
Scheduler - Gave the ability to select 100 different labels, colors, and meanings.  In the past, we thought 11 was enough.  WE WERE WRONG.

This feature is available from within the scheduler.  Select the Options Menu and Select "Label Meanings."

Special thanks to Sean from Texas. 

Added August 3rd, 2011
Modified the "Open Item" statement to allow a date range selection.  In the past, you were not able to select a date range as this statement used to show only UNPAID sessions.

Now, you can select a date range, and DELPHI will show BOTH unpaid sessions AND paid sessions that fall within the date range specified.

This is a subtle change, but was in very high demand by about 5% of our customers.

Thanks to Roger from Wyoming.

Improved May 19th, 2011
Made two major "behind the scenes" modifications related to diagnostic pointers and customization of insurance claims.

Basically, we have made it impossible for users to "accidentally" mess up their claims.  These changes are not "sexy" or obvious to anyone, however they will make both your life and our lives much easier.  TRUST US...

All customers should download this version.  This modification eliminates well over 500+ support calls per year.

Massive Improvement April 28, 2011
Scheduling

We introduced a new feature into the scheduler that provides a "PRIVACY" mode.  The idea here is that there may be times that both you (the provider or office manage) and the client may wish to review available appointments together.

Obviously, you would like to provide that information without displaying other private client information.  You can now do this from within the scheduler by clicking on the menu option labeled "PRIVACY."  If privacy is turned on, then all existing appointments appear in black.

Special thanks to Peter Powers from Oregon who dislikes Therapist Helper, but desires to have this particular feature within DELPHI. 

Added March 16th, 2011
Reviewing Past Claims.

When reviewing past claims, you have always had the ability to resubmit them in their original format.

This version of DELPHI allows you select either a paper or electronic resubmission of the original format. 

Improved March 14th, 2011
IF YOU HAVE THE January 18th, 2011 version of DELPHI32, PLEASE UPDATE TO THE LATEST VERSION IMMEDIATELY.

Unfortunately, we made a mistake related to the insurance billing and have finally corrected it. 

PLEASE UPDATE YOUR VERSION OF DELPHI32 NOW!!!

Special thanks to Achieve Therapy Services from North Carolina. We sincerely appreciate you patience related to our mistake.

Fixed March 9, 2011
Advance date in Payment screen. 

The advance entry in the payment screen is now always located at the bottom of all sessions.  This forces you to look at the ADVANCE entry each time you open the PAYMENT screen without having to locate it yourself.

Special thanks to Byron (billing company) from Washington. 

Added February 9, 2011
SPELL CHECKING has been added to all notes and Electronic Medical Records throughout DELPHI. 

To spell check, right-click on any note within DELPHI32 and selecting Spell Checking.

This provides you with a world class spell checking system which allows you to also define your own custom dictionaries for words not found in the English (American) language.

Special Thanks to Amelia from North Carolina, and Edna from Virginia.  Both of you admit that you can't spell, and this feature helps everyone in the country.

Added February 1, 2011
MAJOR INCREASE IN SPEED on all systems.  Single machines and networked machines.

We discovered a way to increase the performance of DELPHI up to 8 fold.  ALL USERS NEED THIS...  Download the latest version.

Special thanks to Psych Affiliates from Florida and Meredith from North Carolina.

Discovered January 25, 2011
Backup and Restore of DELPHI32 data has been completely re-written. 

To summarize, backups, restores, and preferences related to both have been enhanced.

NEW SETTINGS FOR BACKUP and RESTORE PREFERENCES

  • You can now specify the default backup location.  Please pick the drive that you want to backup to - as opposed to the location on that drive that you might have selected in the past.
  •  
  • b
  • c

CHANGES TO BACKUP INCLUDE:

  • 256bit (AES) ENCRYPTION - If you backup to an external drive with 'encryption' enabled, nobody can read the data in the event that you lose the backup device.  Only your (licensed) version of DELPHI can read the data.  TOTAL SECURITY
  • DELPHI automatically maintains the last 10 backups of your data on your backup device.

CHANGES TO RESTORE INCLUDE:

  • Faster Searching of your computer for any DELPHI backups.  (This can occur up to 100 times faster than it did in the past.)
  • Automatic ranking of the most recent backups.  Backups are listed in the order that they were most recently made.
  • You have the ability to search backup locations in the order your prefer.  DELPHI32 will let you define the drive order that you prefer.

Breaking Change.

Added February 22,2011
Billing Companies - Remember last payment date

This feature is extremely useful to our billing companies as they tend to enter payments every week or so.  DELPHI will remember the last date of the payment, which greatly increases the speed in which past payment information can be entered.

This feature is accessed from the Setup Menu under Accounting.  It is called "Recording Payments - Retrieve previous payment info." 

This will "shave" an hour or two off of your week.

Special thanks to Byron from Washington. This is a huge improvement to all billing companies that use DELPHI across the U.S.

Added December 6, 2010
Scheduler allows you to automatically populate the "Appointment Message" with client and system data.

The default behavior of this feature is to automatically provide the name of the USER, DATE, and TIME stamp of the person that scheduled the appointment.

Additionally, you may populate the Appointment Message with anything else that you desire.  For example, the name, gender, age, diagnosis, telephone numbers, email, etc. can be added to the appointment.  You can add add anything you want to the appointment.

This feature is available by opening the Scheduler, clicking on "Options" and selecting "Scheduler Message".  Simply follow the instructions available on that page.

Special thanks to Mary Anne from Pennsylvania.

Added November 1, 2010
The scheduler allows you to right-click on any appointment and color code it.  In the past, the meanings of these color coded items were not under your control.

Now you can custom design the meanings of the color coded labels to meet your own definitions.  This is done from within the scheduler under the menu called Options->Label Meanings.

Thanks to Jacquelyn from Michigan.

Added October 12, 2010
Fixed a "potential" problem where power users (those who are incredibly fast with their mouse and keyboard) could cause a message screen to be covered by another screen.  This caused some users to "believe" that DELPHI was frozen.

Now, you can't make it happen no matter how fast you are.

Fixed October 5, 2010
Two of the dates within DELPHI (out of 400+) forced you to enter slashes.  This occurred during record a session and on the Payment Screen.

Now you can simply enter the date as 09022010 and it will work as expected.  You can also enter 92210 and it will work too.

Thanks to Brandy from Oregon.

Fixed September 22, 2010

 

When looking up appointments for any client, you can now define how far back in time to start listing appointments and how many appointments to show.

Some customers want to see all past and future appointments, while others only want to see the next few appointments. 

Thanks Randy from Georgia.

Added September 21, 2010
The next few appointments can be printed on statements. Added September 17, 2010
DELPHI used to rely on the Date settings defined in Windows Regional and Language Options when printing or electronically billing insurance carriers.  This turned out to be a bad strategy due to other software programs occasionally modifying these settings.

DELPHI no longer pays attention to the Windows settings, and simply prints the dates in the correct format regardless of the Windows settings.

If you electronically bill, you must have this update.

Fixed September 9, 2010
Only users with specific privileges can view/print session notes.

Thanks Holly from Oregon

Added September 1, 2010
You can print both the Progress Note and the Psychotherapy Note. Added August 19, 2010
The terms for Session Notes (Progress Note vs. Psychotherapy Note) are user definable.  Reasonable people can disagree on the meaning and placement of these terms. 

See Setup->Session Notes->Define Terms

Added August, 12, 2010
Corrected Spelling Errors in Electronic Medical Records.

This was bad form and we apologize.  We let a customer edit this information and never ran a spell check on it. 

Fixed July 29, 2010
On Screen Previews of all reports finally are finally "pretty" again.

We received several hundred calls over the last few months pointing out that we "squished" the preview of most reports.  Lesson learned.

Special thanks to Rose from Alaska who complained the loudest.  

Fixed July 24, 2010
Alternate Statement Address - Copy Client Address Button.

Added a copy Client Address Button to retrieve the currently defined client address information from main Client Information Screen.

Thanks Lynn and Tom from the East Coast.

Added July 18, 2010
Scheduler - Searching appointments for the selected client.

Recurring appointments are now correctly displayed.

On the Main Screen, next to the scheduler button, you can lookup appointments for the selected client.  We fixed several issues related to the recurring appointments button.

Thanks to the Nexus Group from MI, and Tara from Quebec.  This was one of the hardest projects we worked on in the last few years.  Finally, it's over!.    

Fixed June, 19, 2010
Session/Progress Notes vs. Psychotherapy Notes

Each Session now has both a Session Note and a separate Psychotherapy Note. 

Special thanks to Judy from California.

Added June 12, 2010
Signatures

You can now scan your signature into a file on your computer and then import that signature file into DELPHI.  This signature will attach itself to printed session notes.

Everyone owes a thank you to Ramesh from Texas.

Added May 22, 2010
HANDHELD HEAVEN!

Synchronize your DELPHI patients with "OUTLOOK Contacts" and "GOOGLE Contacts".

DELPHI will create a "CSV" (comma separated value) file which will allow you to sync with almost any handheld device (Blackberry, I-Pod, etc...). 

This allows you to lookup client contact information while away from the office. 

The Super Report allows you to lookup a list of clients based on any criteria.  Once you create your ideal client list, you can select "Export Contacts to Outlook/ Google" from Advanced Options located in the lower right corner of the screen.

Added March 3, 2010
The scheduler loads more quickly.  We have also made it impossible for employees to modify settings without consulting the system admin..

Thanks to all of you scheduler addicts.  You know who you are...

Added February 12, 2010
Automatic Write-Off can now be set from the  Client Insurance Information Screen.

Thanks Elisha from New York.

Added February 11, 2010
New Session Report with full search capabilities.

The Session Reports are now fully customizable.  Those of you familiar with the Super Report can now accomplish the same feats with Session specific information.

This feature is extremely powerful.

Thanks to several dozen of you.  This pretty much seals the deal of the ability to create any report you can ask for.

Added February 1, 2010
Super Reports and the new Session Reports now have the ability to SUBTOTAL on any column.

Very cool and a major time-saver.

Added January 15, 2010
Coloring of odd rows on client list - customizable based on your taste.  It makes the client list more attractive.  There are 10 default colors to choose from, however you can pick from millions of other colors.

This is located at the top of the client list as a colored bar drop-down menu.

Our Idea....

Added January 7, 2010
The scheduler allows you to set the default length of appointments.  This is defined as hours and minutes.  A 50 minute appointment would be zero  hours and 50 minutes.  A 90 minute appointment would be 1 hour and 30 minutes.

It is located in the lower right corner of the scheduler.

Thanks Elisha from New York.

Added January 4, 2010
Cascade Checking Option in Financial Histories. 

You can set your preference related to cascaded checking of individual or groups of items.

Thanks Sally from California.

Added December 23, 2009
Session Notes can now be locked while 'Recording a Session' or from the 'Session History' screen Added December 14, 2009
All reports now provide a thumbnail view of all pages in the entire (multi-page) report. Added December 7, 2009
All reports are now searchable. Added November 19, 2009
The mouse wheel works better than it did in the past. Improved October 2, 2009
All reports can be exported to the "PDF" (Adobe) format.  In addition, they can be exported to:
  •  Text (*.txt)
  •  Comma Separated (*.csv)
  • HTML (*.htm)
  • Excel (*.xls)
  • Word (*.rtf)
  • Graphic (WMF) - Windows Metafile
Added September 23, 2009
Electronic Claims enhancement for Office Ally - FREE.

DELPHI will automatically create a folder called "Ally" on your C: drive and automatically name the claims file to the date that you are creating the claim.  For example, if you create a claim on June 17th, 2009, DELPHI will automatically name the file "20090617.txt.  In addition, ff you choose to save your claims to a folder other than "C:\ally", then DELPHI will remember your preferred location.

This greatly speeds up the process of generating electronic claims and normalizes the naming of claims.

Added June 17, 2009
EMR (Electronic Medical Records)

We have made a major breakthrough with all note taking capabilities within DELPHI (including session/progress notes, assessments/treatment plans, general notes, managed care notes. and sticky notes.)

This means total integration of EMR (Electronic Medical Records) into every aspect of the practice management capabilities of DELPHI. 

This feature allows you to define ANY category of your choice and ANY number of choices related to that category.  For example, you might define a category called "DISCUSSION/ISSUES" that contains items such as Friends, Marriage, Children, Parenting, Legal, and Medical. 

You simply right-click while in any note within DELPHI and a menu of your categories will be displayed.  When you select a category, DELPHI will display a selection box containing all choices related to that category.  You may then select any number of items related to that category and insert that information directly into the note.

In the above example, you might select the category of "DISCUSSION/ISSUES", and pick Children, Parenting, and Legal.  DELPHI will then insert the following sentence directly into your notes... "DISCUSSION/ISSUES: Children, Parenting, Legal."

This feature will immediately make sense to you by simply right-clicking on any note with DELPHI and selecting some of our predefined categories.  Remember that you can define ANY category of your choice for any purpose along with any list of options related to your category.

VERY SPECIAL thanks to Michael Connor from Oregon.

Massively Improved May 8, 2009
REQUIRED FIELDS FOR CLIENTS.  In the past, the items that were required when adding or editing clients were determined by DELPHI.  Now, you have the ability to define those items that YOU believe must be completed.  In addition, you can turn off required fields if you do not believe they are important.

For example, you can instruct DELPHI to require a field such as Facility, or you can instruct DELPHI to no longer require a field such as Referral Source.

This feature dovetails nicely with the other new feature (DEFAULT CLIENT) described below.

Go to the Setup Menu under "Add New Client" to see how this works.

Added April 23, 2009
DEFAULT CLIENT.  You may now define a default client which represents the information commonly shared between all of your clients.  For example, each of your clients might share similar characteristics such as their state, place of service, procedure code, referring physician, etc.

This greatly increases the speed in adding a new client to DELPHI, and dovetails nicely with the other new feature (REQUIRED FIELDS) described above. 

Go to the Setup Menu under "Add New Client" to see how this works.

Added April 12, 2009
DUPLICATE AN EXISTING CLIENT.  DELPHI now allows you to duplicate all information for an existing client without forcing you re-enter shared information.

This is very useful in situations where you are seeing multiple family members.

Thank you Rita and Paul from Michigan

Added March 19, 2009
Financial History - Added a statement header to the option that lets you select specific items from the financial history and print them with a standard statement header.

Thank you Rita from Massachusetts and Michelle from North Carolina.

Added March 2, 2009
Activity Report now allows sorting by Payment Source Added February 14, 2009
ELECTRONIC BILLING.  We've switched our clearinghouse to Office Ally (away from National EDI.)  Electronic claims are now free! 

In addition, the buttons within DELPHI that send electronic claims are now set to automatically connect you to the login screen at the Office Ally web site.

Modified Jan 4, 2009
FANTASTIC NEW FEATURE !  DELPHI now allows you to link to any external document from within any of the notes throughout the software.  These might include, but are not limited to DOC files (Word), PDF's and/or scanned images of EOB's, Images/Pictures, Web Pages, Videos, Sound Files, or almost any other file outside of DELPHI.

Linking to external documents is done by simply right-clicking within any note (i.e. Sticky Notes, Progress Notes, Managed Care Notes, Session Histories, Assessments, etc.) and selecting "LINK TO AN EXTERNAL DOCUMENT."

External Links can be accessed by simply clicking on them.

THIS FEATURE IS EXTREMELY POWERFUL AND FURTHER OPENS DELPHI TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD. 

Thank you to all of our customers that helped us "beat up" this feature until it worked beautifully. 

Added/Modified September 9, 2008
Added Email address to client information screen.  Also added the ability to send an email to the client on systems that support Outlook.

Thank you Steve from Chicago.

Added August 2, 2008
Added Days/Units to Managed Care Tracking.  This information is also available in Super Reports and all notes throughout DELPHI.

Thank you David from New Jersey.

Added August 1, 2008
Added Custom User Fields to Main Screen.  Also cleaned up column titles on Main Screen and provided ability to custom select User Fields in the column order.

Thank you Frank from Idaho.

Added July 27, 2008
Made a change for National EDI claims.  Electronic claims are beginning to require Box 19 to be populated with the Referring Physician NPI.

Thank you Medicare for making life miserable for honest software developers, mental health care providers, and innocent patients.  Everyone reading this knows exactly what this means...

Added June 11, 2008
Fixed the occasional "Cannot focus a invisible Window..." message. 

Thank you Allison and Mike, who finally explained the exact circumstances under which this  happened.

Fixed May 2, 2008
DELPHI now support over 2500 different label formats for the printing of labels.

Thank you Devon, who "gently" prodded us to add this feature.

Added April 25, 2008
When you move ANY column to the first position on the main screen, you can easily search by that column.

Thank you Fred for getting us to add this feature back into DELPHI, who "gently" prodded us to add this feature.

Added Feb 13, 2008
You can now rearrange and resize the columns shown on the main screen and DELPHI will remember your preferences each time you open the software.  If there is a column shown on the main screen that you do not care about, then move that column to the far right so it is out of view. Added Nov 15, 2007
Added a custom note to the each Insurance Company.  Added Nov 12, 2007
Added a Personalized Notes Library to DELPHI.

Now you can create a library of customized notes and use them in any of the notes (Progress Notes, Assessments, General Notes) throughout DELPHI.

First, create and maintain your own personalized notes in the Setup Menu under Personalized Notes.

Then, retrieve your custom notes by simply right-clicking in any note in DELPHI.  The right-click will present you with a list of notes to pick from, and then append that information to your document.

This really is an incredibly powerful feature and can be used for prescriptions, assessments, evaluations, intakes, or any other document that you can dream up.

Added Nov 1, 2007
Customer User Codes (See Setup->User Codes.)

The insurance queue has been modified to allow you deal with multiple claim form types.

The Insurance Carrier Setup screen now allows you to select either a CMS or HCFA claim form.  In either case, you can also specify whether the claim is 'Paper' or 'Electronic'.

Once a claim form type is selected, this screen automatically adjusts itself to reflect the appropriate boxes on either claim form.  This allows you to customize each claim form on a carrier by carrier basis.  Most importantly, you get to pick the National Provider ID to be included on the new CMS claim forms.

Added Jan 12, 2007
The automatic update feature has how been enabled.

Any time you would like to check for a new version of DELPHI, you should click on the Help Menu at the top of the main screen, and select "Check for Updates".  This will allow DELPHI to update itself while the program is still running.

In the past, you had to exit DELPHI and visit our web site to obtain the latest version.

Added Dec 25, 2006
When printing insurance bills, DELPHI will now ask you which printer you would like to send the print job to.  This is very nice when you have multiple printers and have pre-loaded one printer with claim forms and the other with plain paper or letterhead.

Thank you Howard from Portland, and many others

We have replaced the old scheduler with a new and world class scheduler.  A few of the major enhancements include:

- Sync with MS Outlook (and your handheld)

- Recurring appointments

- Day, Week, Month, Year, Timeline, or any other view

Additionally, you can now sync DELPHI with MS Outlook, which means you can then sync with your favorite hand-held device (Palm, Blackberry, Trio, etc.)

The new scheduler is one of the most useful additions in the past few years.  VERY NICE !

Thank you Fred from Tampa, and many others who have been "gently requesting..." a full-fledged scheduling package in DELPHI.

Added Nov 29, 2006

Added a new column to the detailed activity report.

Added Aug 4th, 2006
Fixed a minor bug in the activity report.

Thank you Mardelle and Stuart from Washington.

Improved Apr 29, 2006
The search feature on the main screen now allows you to move between clients without having your hands leaving the keyboard. 

This takes a little getting used to since older versions of the software required you to use your mouse to start a search. 

Another little trick is that you can "clear" a search by simply pressing the 'up' or 'down' arrow key on your keyboard and then resume searching for a new client.

Modified Apr 03, 2006
Some customers report that they don't know exactly what new features are included in the software as new versions become available.

DELPHI32 will now alert you to anything new to the software while you are actually using that part of the program. 

For example: if you are making a backup, the New Feature screen will appear telling you how backups are faster and take less space.

Added Mar 22, 2006
HELP is always available by pressing the <F1> key on your keyboard.

The help system is well written, contains a table of contents, keyword search, and hyperlinks to other related help topics. 

It also contains a beautiful reproduction/image of the "HCFA-1500" that allows you to click anywhere on the claim form with your mouse to receive instant help.

Very Nice. Mar 15, 2006

Procedure Code Modifiers -  Although DELPHI32 allowed you to add "modifiers" in the past, this update allows you to automatically assign modifiers to specific procedure codes without having to pay attention to details.  Improved Jan 9, 2006
Scheduler related - You can now assign future appointments to any client and then instantly look up those appointments with a single click. Added Dec 20, 2005

The "Insurance Queue" now searches more deeply for any past sessions that might need to be billed.  Another slight modification is that insurance bills are not assigned a print date until they are actually removed from the Insurance Queue. Minor addition, but useful. Nov 3, 2005
New Feature: (VERY NICE !!!)

DELPHI now lets you "view" completed HCFA-1500s on the screen rather than having to print them on preprinted claim forms. 

Added Mar 28, 2005
Insurance coverage - We have added  "Effective" and "Terminate" dates to client insurance coverage Added Mar 15, 2005
Concerning Statements and Activity Reports:

A new option has been added to DELPHI32 that allows you to remove the automatically generated transaction type descriptions that are attached to the descriptions typed in by you.

For example:  If you recorded a session in the past for INDIV PSYCH, Delphi32 would automatically print CHARGE INSUR - INDIV PSYCH.  You may now instruct the software to eliminate the CHARGE INSUR portion.  This means that you have total control over the description.  Warning:  If you enable this feature, you had better make sure you type meaningful descriptions for charges, payment, adjustments, etc...

Go to the Setup Menu under Accounting and look for the item labeled "Reduce descriptive info on Statements and Activity Reports"

Added Feb 2, 2005
DELPHI can now let you choose between the terms CLIENT and PATIENT.  Once selected, the appropriate term will appear throughout the software.

The Super Report now contains "Interactive Totals."  If a column in the report can be totaled, then it will.  In addition, the interactive totals provide the ability to select the Sum, Count, Minimum Value, Maximum Value, and Average when the column lends itself to these calculations.  Lastly, if you apply a filter to the column, the totals automatically recalculate based on the new contents of the column.  This is a very useful feature. Added Jun 25, 2004

The mouse wheel now works much more nicely within all lists. Added Jan 3, 2004
A problem occurred while previewing Activity Report and THEN selecting Save, or Printing Preferences.  The program appeared to freeze due to the dialog appearing BEHIND the preview of the report. Fixed Dec 30, 2003

Added / Rewritten Dec 15, 2003
