The HIPAA Claim  Master can be automated through a scheduler. A scheduler is software that can be programmed to execute a certain task at a certain time repeatedly. Windows has such a scheduler built in.

The Windows scheduler can be used to let the HIPAA Claim  Master execute in regular intervals without user intervention. Usually one would let the HIPAA Claim Master scan a directory and then print, create image files or export the data and remove the files to prevent duplicate processing.

 

Use the command line with the appropriate options as described in Using Command Line Arguments (CLI).

Note: Please consult Windows help files for further information on setting up the scheduler.

 

1. If the task scheduler is installed on your system, you will find it in the "Control Panel". To open Scheduled Tasks, click Start arrow Control Panel arrow Scheduled Tasks.

Note: In different Windows versions, the way to access the Task Scheduler can differ. Consult your Windows version documentation.
