How to set up Preferences in Financials
Apart from having one of the most powerful EMR Modules, Clinicea also consists of a strong Billing System. While most software either Focus on EMR or Financials, Clinicea goes a step ahead combining both EMR and the Financials of your Clinic.
Financial Year: you can set the start and finish of your Financial Year by selecting from the options in the drop-down list. Example: April to March.
Stock Voucher needs Authorisation: This preference allows you to set up authorizations for inward entry of stock after physical verification. Example: Your Vendor transfers 10 pieces of Face Cream to your Clinic and creates a Voucher for it. You verify the Stock and receive only 8 pieces. Authorization of the Voucher allows you to accept the 8 pieces and Reject the 2 you haven’t received.
Discount above __% needs Authorisation: This preference allows you to set the maximum discount that can be given in a Bill at the Clinic level. Any discount given above the threshold will automatically be put on hold till Authorisation is given by the user who has the permission to give such authorizations.

In Pharmacy dispense, Do not bill: This preference allows you to only dispense medication and not Bill it. This preference is specifically beneficial for Clinics, where billing is centralized for Service + Rx. In such cases the Pharmacy desk only dispenses, it does not bill.
Display Item Prices after Discount, for Package Bills: If checked on, this preference will display the after discount item price of a Package. The preset discount of the Package will not show on the Bill screen. It also gives you the option to add an additional discount at the Clinic level. For Example, A Package consists of 5 items, each priced at $100. A preset discount of 10% is applicable to the Package. When this Package is Billed, the item price will appear as $90. If the clinic staff want to give a further discount, they can do so by entering the discount in the discount field.
