Running Financial Reconciliation Reports

Any User(s) with the "Reconciliation" tab enabled in the "Back Office" > "Financial" module can run Financial Reconciliation Reports. Please see "Setting Up Financial Reconciliation Rights" for details. Most practices utilize this feature at the end of every business day, although PatientNOW allows practices to choose any date range. 

Any User designated as a "Financial Admin" will receive the Financial Reconciliation Report Summary as a .PDF file for review. See "Setting Up Financial Reconciliation Rights - 'Financial Admin' " for how to set up a user to receive Financial Reconciliation Reports.
