Estimated reading time: 3 min

The Invoice Summary report produces a list of individual invoices with itemized charges created on the system for the time period specified.

The ‘Detailed Style’ provides the same options as the ‘Invoice Style’, plus two extras: it allows you to include history text from each Consult, as well as restrict the report by Transaction Type, such as ‘Surgery’, ‘Dental Care’, etc.

Accessing The Invoice Summary Report

  1. Go to the RxWorks Task Panel.
  2. Select ‘Reports’ from the “toolbar”.
  3. Select ‘A: Cash Reconciliation & Banking Lists.’
  4. Select either ‘Invoice Style’ or ‘Detailed Style’ under the ‘5 Invoice Summary’ heading.

The window shown above will appear.

About the Invoice Summary Report

Invoice Summary reports are extremely useful for tracking the performance of individual staff members, including new employees, and invaluable for auditing production bonuses.

The reports display – in user-specified amounts of detail – all of the invoices created for each Client. Itemized charges are listed, allowing a full audit of all products and services sold. This allows auditing of staff members’ invoicing accuracy down to the mL of medication. You can restrict this report to a particular doctor or cost center, and even to a particular transaction type using the Detailed Style.

Notice the report shows:

  • Invoices grouped by Client
  • Detailed sales information, including total sales for the given time period
  • What The Report Does

    This report produces a list of individual invoices with itemized charges created on the system for the time period specified.

    When To Run The Report

    This report can be run at management’s discretion. Daily review can be time consuming, while long-term auditing can be cumbersome, due to the level of detail provided. Taking random samplings of invoices serves to save time when auditing multiple staff members, while a more thorough review can be done for new or inexperienced ones.

    Things To Watch For

    Unless you choose to Use the Transaction Date, invoice information will be based on the date and time the transaction is entered into the system.

    The Report Window

    Date Range

    This is the time period for which invoices will be shown. Set the ‘From’ and ‘To’ dates and times accordingly.


    Use Transaction Date

    Check this if you want to run the report based on the dates the transactions occurred.
    In most cases, you will not want to do this, because, typically, the date relevant to your financial records is the date the transaction was entered into the system and, most likely, the date money exchanged hands or an invoice was created. You might use this feature if you want to locate the actual date of the transaction, such as in situations where you remember some financial details about a medical procedure, but cannot remember which day of the week it was performed during a busy week.

    Include History Text

    Place a check in this box to include history text.
    Depending on your practice’s method of entering Consult information, this may greatly increase the length of the report.
