Easily Add ICD and CPT Codes



In the past, adding ICD and CPT Codes to SOAP Notes within Jasmine Practice Management was a bit cumbersome. In the latest release, we're making it easier and quicker to enter ICD and CPT Codes to SOAP Notes.

Two new buttons have been added to SOAP Notes called "Add ICD" and "Add CPT".


After clicking on the respective buttons, a modal dialog is presented which shows currently selected ICD or CPT Codes.


Selecting ICD or CPT Codes can easily be done by using the typeahead function, which searches both code number and description. 


Once an ICD or CPT Code is selected, they are saved to the SOAP Note.

Community Acupuncture Scheduling


Community Acupuncture is an amazing way for acupuncturists to scale and provide quality healthcare to many people at the same time. In the past, scheduling patients for community acupuncture has been difficult, mainly because the scheduling applications on the market don't address the needs of distinguishing chairs and private rooms and allowing for overlapping appointments.

I'm excited to announce that Jasmine Practice Management can now schedule patients for both community acupuncture and private rooms.

The configuration for setting up community acupuncture scheduling is very simple. The first step is specifying the number of treatment chairs and the frequency to check for availability.



Next is to define the hours of operations for community acupuncture.



And lastly, defining a new service for community acupuncture.



Patients can now offer and schedule both Community and private room acupuncture from the same scheduling widget. 



For the acupuncture community, having a modern solution tailored for the needs of acupuncturists will help move the profession forward in the ever changing healthcare landscape.

Multi-room Online Patient Scheduling


One of the many great things about being an acupuncture medical professional is the the ability to scale yourself and treat and help multiple people at the same time. For acupuncturists, the uniqueness of this trait presents a problem in finding an online patient scheduling service to fit this need. Many times, acupuncturists make unhealthy modifications and workarounds to existing online patient scheduling services to be able to manage multiple rooms.

Now, with Jasmine Practice Management, acupuncturists no longer need to force a product to fit their needs. Jasmine Practice Management supports multi-room scheduling from the online patient scheduling widget.


Acupuncturists are now empowered to have patients self schedule and fully utilize all the office's resources to treat and care for patients.

The New Calendar+


Appointment scheduling is one of most important functions of an acupuncture practice. A practitioner needs to quickly and easily book appointments and move to the next important task at hand.

The initial calendar offering from Jasmine Practice Management was the default Salesforce calendar. While this was a great first start, we learned from customer feedback that it was insufficient. Based on feedback, some of the new changes include:

Display shorter time increments

The new calendar now shows in 15 minute increments instead of 30 minute increments. This provides easier viewing of appointments start and end times.


Easier appointment creation

Creating an appointment is now easier. The appointment creation dialog provides a quick patient lookup as well as having the Service more easily selectable.


Overlapping appointments

A unique and wonderful feature of an acupuncture practice is the ability to treat multiple individuals at the same time. This allows for providing medical care at scale. The Calendar+ allows for scheduling multiple overlapping appointments.



Drag and drop appointment rescheduling

The ability to easily reschedule appointments by drag and drop makes for a more efficient practice and better way of interacting with the Calendar.



As we move forward, we will continue to enhance the new Calendar+ to help acupuncturists with this crucial task in managing their practice and to look for ways to increase efficiency and productivity.

Release News: Easily Add Needle Points to SOAP Notes



As an acupuncture practitioner, the thought of paper work and documentation is dreadful and tedious. SOAP Notes are even more painful when you're recording the needle points used during a treatment. And to run a professional medical acupuncture practice and to adhere to health guidelines, taking proper notes is essential. 

One of the main goals of Jasmine Practice Management is to make SOAP Note recording as accurate and simple as possible and to get acupuncturists back to treating patients. In our latest release we move closer to this goal with the ability to easily add needle points.



The new "Add Needle Points" button opens the Needle Point dialog. On the dialog, the practitioner selects the unilateral or bilateral insertion, so Right, Left or Bilateral. Next, the practitioner chooses from the 14 meridians (LU, LI, HT, SI, PC, SJ, GB, LV, UB, K, ST, SP, DU, REN) and the corresponding points are then available to be selected.


The results of the needle points selection is recorded in the SOAP Note in the Points & Methods field under the Needle Plan section.

3 Easy Steps: Painless Patient Data Import



The patients you've collected over the years are invaluable to you and your business. And one of the most difficult tasks when moving to a new system is the question of what to do with your existing patient data.

Many systems make data migration a pain. One of the reasons for this is to force vendor lock-in, which is to make customers dependent on the vendors services. Less innovative companies think this will prevent customers from switching to another service, however, the underlying message they are saying is that they're not confident in their own product. And holding your data hostage is their best line of defense.

One of the main features of Jasmine Practice Management is to easily export and import data in a "standard" format. And, "standard" format is important here because it allows you, the customer, to easily move your data from one system to another.

And this extends from one of our core beliefs which is "Your data belongs to you."

Recently, we've had the privilege of migrating users of Gingko ClientTracker and Office Ally Practice Mate to Jasmine Practice Management. The experience showed us the difficulty and hoops that users of other services go through to export their patient's data. In Jasmine Practice Management, as a user, you can export your patient data at anytime, no hoops required.

And the reverse is just as easy, data import in to Jasmine Practice Management is easy as 1, 2, 3...


Importing your data into Jasmine Practice Management is painless. You first start off by launching the wizard. Then choose the type of object, which could be a patient contact record, SOAP Notes, products and more.


You then choose to "Add new records" or "Update existing records" in Jasmine Practice Management.


And finally, choose the file type for import. The standard format is a CSV file, which is a Comma-Separated Values file type used often by spreadsheet programs like Excel.



And, that's data import in 3 easy steps!
