The software is licensed to one anaesthetic practice and is not transferable to another practice. TERMS and CONDITIONS OF USE.

 

Annual Support Subscription

 

The initial purchase price includes updates and technical support for the first 12 months. The annual support fee is not due until the end of the first 12 months. A current subscription is required to obtain software updates and support.

 

For group practices with a computer network (multiple or unlimited versions), the annual support fee is increased by $408 for each additional networked PC. For example, the annual fee for a 4 computer practice, unlimited provider version, would be 2800 + (3 x 408) = 4024. (In practice, the per PC fee is calculated as $34 per PC per month.)

 

Individual members of a group practice may maintain a personal read-only 'satellite' copy of Access Anaesthetics for an annual fee of $350.

 

Annual Support Includes …

  • Regular program updates incorporating new features, changes to billing practices, bug fixes.
  • MBS and ASA RVG items updates.
  • Private health fund schedule updates.
  • Unlimited email support.
  • Free telephone support up to 2 hours per year. Additional support attracts an additional charge, currently $200 ph.
  • Regular email bulletins for important information and notification of updates.
  • Updates are available from within the software using the Web Update function. Or we can send CDs if you prefer. An additional annual fee of $75 will be levied for CD updates, payable at the time of subscription renewal.
  • Not included – telephone support over 2 hours per year, remote access via modem/Internet, site visits. These attract additional charges, currently $200 ph.
On-Site or Remote Installation
  • $200.00 per hour (additional travel costs may apply).
  • The purchase price does not include on-site installation or training.
  • Installation of the single user version on one PC is normally a simple process which can be performed by a computer novice in a short time. Site visits or remote support are rarely needed.
  • Installation of a networked version on multiple computers may take up to 2 hours depending on the hardware and software environment.

On-Site or Remote Training 

 

$200.00 per hour - individual or group training on site (additional travel costs may apply).

To reduce costs, training is not included in the purchase price. The system is easy to learn and use, and we provide the following resources to assist:

  • an easy-to-install, fully-functional trial version, available before purchase
  • comprehensive built-in help file
  • on-line manual and additional information on our website
  • unlimited email support

For group practices we recommend an initial training session of approximately 4 hours with one or more practice staff. Less than this does not provide adequate time to cover the main functions; longer times are usually too demanding on staff resources. Follow-up training after a period of hands-on experience is usually effective in consolidating the finer points.

 

Additional Technical Support

  • Reasonable telephone support is included. We keep a log of telephone support (date, time, issues discussed) and charge a fee where the total over a 12 month period is more than 2 hours.
  • Remote access support via the Internet is also available at our standard hourly rate.
  • Site visits for technical support are charged at our standard hourly rate.

Remote access on our Virtual Server

 

We also offer a fully hosted system on our virtual server. This can be accessed from any Windows PC or Mac and frees you from the risks of data loss on your own PC. Click here for more details.

Update Policy

 

Access Anaesthetics is a dynamic system and program changes are regularly made to incorporate new features and to update billing processes according to industry requirements. Updates to the Medicare and RVG schedules that affect anaesthetists will be provided in good time, usually prior to the effective date. We make every attempt to provide timely updates for all the private health fund schedules. However, the funds can be very tardy in providing us with changes to their schedules, and they can change them at any time without notice. When we become aware of a new or updated fund schedule, we can usually incorporate it into an Access Anaesthetics update within a few days.

 

For program changes, there is a trade off between timely updates and exhaustive testing and, consequently, program bugs will sometimes appear. We always correct significant problems as soon as possible and will quickly notify you of any issues that may affect your billing practice. The software is provided, as is, and support for program bugs is considered to be part of the standard support program.
